RIWmag had interviewed in June 2014 for his role as a windsurfer writer. At the time he was leaving his job as a sales engineer in the construction industry to take a sabbatical (www.riwmag.com/giuseppe-ammendola-da-windsurfista-a-scrittore/). A 3 years later RIWmag meets Joseph Ammendola to coincide with the release of his latest book, Once associated with world of windsurfing.
RIW: Hello Joseph, 3 years ago you were about to begin a sabbatical after leaving the construction industry where you worked for more’ of 20 years. What’ success in that year's sabbatical and what you decided to do next?
Giuseppe Ammendola: First of all thank you for your interest I'll reserve RIW. Take time to time serves for more reasons: take a breather, reorder the ideas – thing that the hectic life rarely allows you to do – , recharge. All of us should do it, at least once, and I'm just happy to have succeeded. Imagine now the same dynamic when I decided to change course from’ a sense of completeness to my choices, as if these composed a design already done, but that I could not wait because in the shadows of the rut. During that year I realized that the work cannot be solely responsible, but also like. After four months in Brazil, back in France where I live, I attended a school and I graduated from Cook. Here the State supports and funds the possibility of new training courses, It's called retraining. I will not hide the enthusiasm and joy in being in the classroom at forty and passes. Not to mention that that time I served also to make more windsurfing. Now I feel a person satisfied.
RIW: 3 years ago, you stated that the engine of your life was exploration. And’ still so’ or e’ something changed?
G.A.: Is always of the same opinion. Sure, times are changing and influence our perception ... The reflection of the mirror invites me to be extra cautious, noticed ... But exploration is also a synonym of discovery, Search, of study and exploration, and these are all fuels that feed my daily.
RIW: How many books have you written so far and how many of these are related to the world of windsurfing?
G.A.: A blast and three novels, two of which related to windsurfing. It is easier to talk about what you love, and express themselves through fictional characters and not, to give voice and shape to the imagination, but also to their Outlook on life.
RIW: You want to present your latest book readers to RIWmag? What's the name and what is?
G.A.: The snow in September (available on www.amazon.it/Neve-Settembre-Giuseppe-Ammendola-ebook/dp/B078KCY3K6/ref=sr_1_1?ie = UTF8&QID = 1515759314&SR = 8-1&keywords = 20neve% 20The% 20settembre%), but I can't reveal the reason for the title, the reader will find out just in the last chapter. Gabriel Klivia are the protagonists of the novel, Two windsurfers, He is a seductive dentist of Lecco, She a German astronomer, anything but pragmatics. Are themselves to tell their stories in alternating chapters called "his and hers". The scenario is to Jericoacoara, I told you it would be reviewed at the Theater I witnessed for some time. But then there is the Lake of Como and the cold Kiel, I assure you that it is, I had to go there to do research. The plot is dynamic and romantic, but also witty and introspective. In Short, as I said above, a narrative through which liberate imagination but also evolution.
RIW: How come the windsurfing appears so’ often in your books? What’ the link between the sailboard and your creativity’ by writer?
G.A.: In my living room I hung from the ceiling blue and white wing, are my favorite colors, It is no coincidence that those of the sea and the effervescence of the waves. I'm not a regular windsurfer: work permitting handy when I can. However, full sail canvas of a painting in which I enter good friends and the Sun, I don't see them everyday but I know that they exist and remain my compass.
RIW: There is also a link between sailboard, your creativity’ from writer and your new job from Cook? What type of cuisine you're specializing?
G.A.: Well answer the question by exposing a project, Maybe my next, Anyway the link does exist. First of all I think that if you love windsurfing you can't not love the sea. Personally I couldn't live away from the coast, Sono napoletano, and I grew up a few hundred meters from the sea. The project is to start as a volunteer on a boat in the Sea Shepherd, an association in defense of marine animals. On board, as Cook, that is my job, I'd like to collect ideas and materials to transform them into a book, and why not in a novel; Maybe entering even of my recipes. Depending on the mission, I could tell the fate of the pilot whales of the Faroe Islands, the danger of extinction of whales in the Mediterranean, of turtles in the Adriatic, etc.. What is certain is that I should redo the marine foot, for the rest I would be comfortable: in the galley there are only ingredients of plant origin, like the ones in my kitchen. Why defend a dolphin rather than a sea bream!? The sea and its wildlife are in danger, but so is the man. We often forget that the sea, Thanks to its micro-organisms, is the second lung, essential for the production of oxygen – without the sea there will be no more oxygen. I don't mean to be nefarious but at least consistent with my choices. Because it is precisely this ... of choices! Those that we perform in every single gesture; There are those who think that alone we cannot do anything to improve things, and I'm aware of that, However, I believe that the first choice is to decide which side stand: than the cause or solution.
I would like to thank the readers of RIW and of course you.
