Sali e Tabacchi Journal #2

That genius and madness go hand in hand is no mystery to anyone. Since time immemorial, the most creative and brilliant minds have been associated with mental illness. The notion that genius is only thinly separated from insanity goes back at least to ancient Greece. Aristotle linked the two when he said, “There is no great genius without a touch of madness.”

Thus for Issue 02 of Sali e Tabacchi Journal, we invited contributors to interpret what this theme means to them, in whatever form they may like. From the mysterious and exclusive world of academia to philosophy, sociology, myths and legends, we seek to uncover unknown stories, rituals and traditions and speak to the individuals who are nowadays, like us, questioning the fine line between the two.
