Each living organism has a DNA. Cuba's DNA is called José Martí. Martí is the Dante, the Mazzini and the martyr of Cuba, all in one. Martí lived only 42 years, yet left a literary opus that amounted to about forty volumes in the critical edition. Imprisoned by the Spanish at the early age of 16 and then sent into exile, between 1892 and 1895 Martí founded and guided the Cuban Revolutionary Party: he is el Apostol and el Héroe nacional par excellence.

Unlike Mazzini, Martí fought in the front line, falling under Spanish fire on May 19 1895. Martí dominates Cuba - he is el Apostol and  el Héroe nacional par excellence.
Essential for an understanding of Cuba's past and future, his is also a message of primary geopolitcal importance.

Terra del Nulla, Terra degli Uomini, Terra dell'Oltre (1989), Logos dell'Essere, Logos della Norma (1999) and Nera Luce (2001).  These are profound studies of the fundamentals of general and religious philosophy.

In 1979 he set up, and continues to lead, meditation groups that explore the possibility of a contemplative life commensurate with modern knowledge.
