With this Michela Murgia passed them all. The writer of well-known political thought is now railing against it Roberto Benigni. His fault? Having dedicated the Golden Lion for career to his wife. “Net of the conjugal enthusiasm of Roberto Benigni, whose genuineness no one doubts, from the point of view of the public representation of the man-woman relationship, the words of the actor reproduce a centuries-old cliché, that of the great woman behind the great man, where the word that triggers the toxic mechanism is not ‘great’, but ‘behind’ “.
Over here? No way. From the columns de L’Espresso the Murgia analyzes the actor’s speech in detail. The same one that moved many Italians and non-Italians. “Benigni, certainly in good faith, to the Venetian microphones he conjured to perfection. The first of these rhetorical devices can be summarized in the phrase ‘I owe everything to you’ “. And again:” It tells the female genius, or – to put it in the words of Benigni in his speech – the enigma of femininity, which wants women are creatures who ‘have something that we men do not understand, an endless mystery’. The prejudice that women are alien beings which proceed in incomprehensible ways, besides making men appear to be related to the simplicity of unicellular organisms which evidently are not, leads them to an empyrean where they can only inspire, never act “.
Hence the conclusion to the limit of the most delusional of feminisms: “The perfect story is therefore not the one in which an extraordinary woman makes any man who ends up marrying become president or Oscar winner. It is one in which no one finds it romantic to live in a system where a woman is thanked for making a man reach out goals that are denied to her“It is a pity, however, that Murgia forgets Jamie Lee Curtis, who was also awarded the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement.
