Conversations with contemporaries

Giovanni di Lorenzo's interviews with prominent contemporaries are always an event. We find out why Daniel Cohn-Bendit tells his Jewish family story for the first time shortly after his seventy-fifth birthday. Amazed that Telekom boss Timotheus Höttges advocates an unconditional basic income and that Udo Jürgens sometimes felt like nothing after acclaimed concerts. Share Pope Francis' doubts about his faith; feel the fear that a despot like Recep Erdoğan spreads.



The intensity of the encounters creates exciting portraits that are also a reflection of the major political and social issues of the past decade - the refugee crisis, pandemic, war, xenophobia or cancel culture debates.


Reading immerses you in the beliefs and biographies of people who have shaped the present in different ways. Giovanni di Lorenzo creates an atmosphere of rare closeness and openness, but never shies away from confrontation. And in doing so, it elicits things from even sophisticated media professionals that they have not previously said publicly.
