Most of what he says or writes, Nuccio Ordine It comes from knowledge, since its inception is the desire for knowledge. From the classics, to which he devoted his whole life, and to the modern, such as Emilio Ledo also George Steinerwith whom he lived as a reader, student and friend. Moreover, his school is life, that is, classrooms, newspapers, but above all students. Students for him are like successive books. His doubts are the doubts he had, and his certainty is always in addition to his doubts. You’ve already got all, or almost all, of the awards. And that which he now receives in Asturias, that is, in the highest part of the Spanish geography, where such personalities as Juan Cueto or Leopoldo Alas came from, has become a classic support for him, because in his career he has been awarded, names also in the learning volume Nuccio Ordine.
So his role in life was to learn. This passion for knowledge occupied the nature of his travels and still occupies it. Trips to universities, libraries and others who know and to the world. Whenever he says he is somewhere to learn, without a shadow of a doubt, he is coming from somewhere else. Yesterday I could be in Chile and immediately in Paris. His personality, which is that of an athlete, has always been a personality A scientist who travels along the roads that feed him, through geographies that require his soul to be awake to say what he sees, what he hears, what his friends or teachers write.ancient and modern. Emilio Ledou, one of the oldest European philosophers, interrupted one afternoon immediately after the plague, when the plague was receding, to spend hours talking about his philosophy with this laureate who would take notes like when he spoke with Georg Steiner or with Umberto Ecoexercise the same learning function.
This historian met him when it was his most famous book, Useless than useless. He took from the perennial drawer of wisdom the most important of his learning and turned it into a kind of poem of knowledge which, by becoming part of a modern work, is published with the zeal and excitement of cleanliness by cliff (Sandra Olu, her director, has plenty of reasons to be happy.) A contemporary statement was made.
starting from Useless than useless Nuccio Ordine was seen by students and teachers as being The teacher who carried in his wisdom, too, the essence of what he had not received, neither from the universities nor from the schools, and the encouragement to refer to the classics as very modern bases for their teaching. Carelessness has broken and now what seemed useless is really necessary to approach wisdom. The classic is the modern, and Nuccio Ordin, who has always said that to all winds, is the champion of this revolutionary modernity in which he had precedents to which he has always dedicated the successive victories that his passion for knowledge deserves.
In that meeting with Lledó, in his conversations with George Steiner, in his endless passion for Umberto Eco, a character is attached, a character The student who will never cease to existand, above all, the teacher who hides in his clearest and kindest heart, the soul of a student eager to learn. To know and tell.
