Passi stracciati

15.00

A novel that, through the poetics of Erri De Luca, tells of a meeting with inmates in a psychiatric hospital in Bosnia where madness is more “normal” than the war that is being fought.

The photographs show the abandonment of a people left to themselves in contrast with the protagonist’s encounter.

Topic

A reflection on the absence of the international community in the “cold war” compensated, only in part, by the volunteer work of many who, like the writer, did their utmost to guarantee humanitarian aid.

The terrible testimony of sweetness of the protagonist remains indelible: Glazba. Madness allows her to still glimpse a possible gesture of love, denied instead in the reality lived all around and described with art by the photographs taken in the places where the story is set in the period immediately following the war.

Curiosities

The play of the same name is taken from the text, distributed by the Assembly Theatre – a permanent theatre of innovation.

The same company has made, with Erri De Luca, three theatrical adaptations from his following books: Aceto Arcobaleno, The weight of the butterfly, The name of the mother (the last two still being replicated in national theatres).
