The AIK - Italian Association of Kinesiology, under the patronage of the City of Bassano del Grappa, organizes on September 29th a meeting with the writer Patrizia Sanvitale, for the presentation of her book “The healing hand. Dialogues with masters of well-being”.
The book, published by Marsilio Editori, is the latest title in the series “Métiers d'Art” curated by the Cologni Foundation, which through thirty interviews with masters of the massage wants to draw a map of the disciplines of well-being, heirs of ancient techniques, but open to new variations.

Alessandro Tich, director of Bassanonet and Informasalute, is the moderator of the meeting. Speakers, besides the author, include two of the “gurus” interviewed and portrayed in the book: Maria Rosa Fimmanò, director of the School of Kinesiology and Neuro-Training “Kinergia”, and Massimo Magalini, physiotherapist, osteopath, and professor at the Master “Fisioterapia applicata allo Sport” at the University of Siena.

Demonstrations of manuals techniques for health and wellbeing are foreseen during the meeting.
