Social Cardboard Towns | Città di Cartone Sociali

ct_fbWell, after a few years on the web I finally decided to open a facebook page of Cardboard Towns. I don’t like facebook – as most people do, even though they are always there – mostly for political and ethical reasons (users exploitation, censorship, etc. etc.) so I have just a fancy account in order to manage Cardboard Towns page and a few other things. Anyway, you are invited to visit the page (and to “like” it, if you like) here.

Be’, dopo qualche anno di presenza in rete, alla fine ho deciso di aprire una pagina facebook di Città di Cartone. Detesto feccialibro (come pare la maggior parte della gente, anche se poi è sempre lì sopra) e infatti ho un account farlocco giusto per gestire la pagina di Città di Cartone e altre cosette, tra cui quella del mio romanzo In Bianco. Comunque, siete invitati a visitare la suddetta pagina (e a “mipiaciarla” se vi piace) qui.
