Filo Rosso: the common thread running through a movie, a book series, etc., or one’s life; literally “red thread.” We all have a red thread weaving through our lives. Look back at turning points, highlights, crossroads, or the interests that you followed and the people that you loved, and you’ll find a common factor that ties them all–or many of them–together.
Maybe you have several red threads, or maybe one that flows into another.
The red thread helps you form a narrative about your life and make sense of what’s happened to you, how your experiences have changed you, and where you might be headed.
Many of my articles, essays, and blog posts come about because I’ve recognized the filo rosso that ties this moment to that, and together they form a connection with greater meaning. Or, at least something compelling enough to write about.
