The most precious thing: Victor D.O. Santos in conversation with Vera Gheno

«It has existed for a very long time. It knows how to be sweet, but also very harsh. You find it in every home, on every street, in every city. If it dies, an entire world disappears. It is language! Guardian of every culture, essence of our humanity». The most precious thing is the book by linguist and author Victor D.O. Santos, protagonist of a dialogue with Vera Gheno, the book's translator. The volume, illustrated by Anna Forlati, is published by Terre di Mezzo, in collaboration with UNESCO, on the occasion of the International Decade of Indigenous Languages (2022-2032).
