Alcuni pezzi, ritagli di giornale, citazioni bizzarre et similia, erano anonimi, e in keeping with quanto ricordo i vari collaboratori della rivista me li passavano through through consistent with alimentare los angeles rubrica. Essendone alimentatore in keeping with mandato, vi avevo pubblicato più di ogni altro, prima piccole moralità e poi through through pastiches letterari. Verso il 1962 Vittorio Sereni mi chiese di riunire questi miei pezzi in un quantity e siccome, a rubrica ormai estinta, 'Diario minimo' period diventato ormai quasi il nome di un genere, scelsi questo titolo consistent with il libro che poi uscì nel 1963. los angeles storia del libro è quella che è: so che in vari dipartimenti di architettura si insegna ancora il Paradosso di Porta Ludovica, in step with non dire della 'Fenomenologia di Mike Bongiorno', citata anche da chi non l'ha letta, tanto che mi è accaduto di vederla definita come 'un libro su', mentre si tratta di sei paginette.
