ALAIN ELKANN INTERVIEWS

“I wish to say that an interview can be like a photograph, because in it is that moment in someone’s life, that unique moment that the interview catches forever.

“Sometimes when we read classic interviews from the archive it is great, because here are their very words; and in cases like Moravia or Versace there won’t be others. So every scholar or historian can value these interviews and treat them as rare documents.

“An interview with a great personality never gets old, just as much as they don’t. An interview can either be fresh news or the memory of someone that one should never forget.

“There are special people… that never pass even when they will be no more.”
