Milano – Monday 11 October 2021, at 18.30, al Franco Parenti Theater in Milan (Café Rouge) the presentation of the book is scheduled Italian tales by François Koltès; the author talks with Oliviero Ponte Di Pino; readings of Marina Senesi.
Milano – François Koltès, French filmmaker, architect and novelist, brother of the great playwright Bernard-Maries dedicates seven stories to Italy, the last of which, as the translator and curator Maria Vidale writes, takes on the tones of a theatrical piece. They are stories of love and disaffection, of moments stolen from time, and days of youth or disenchantment. Throughout the stories there are appearances of enigmatic figures capable of embodying the genius loci and the archaic appearances of a Mediterranean made of complexity and arcane charms.
Milano – The author, through a live narration, takes up the surrounding reality with meticulous attention, typical of the documentary maker: reading Italian tales you get the feeling of seeing places and characters, and to be able to follow them in their wandering through the gulf of Naples, the city and the port of Palermo, in Turin or on the Tuscan hills, in the gulf of Naples, or in the hinterland and on the Sicilian coast.
An intense prose, full of dreamlike and poetic glimpses in which – as we read in the sentimental note of the translator at the opening of the book – moments of masterful vivacity mix with moments of intense lyricism. A vivid and disenchanted look at our country, free from prejudices, far from commonplaces.
Entrance 5 euros, with the obligation of a Green Pass and the possibility of buying the book at a discounted price of 10 euros. For further information and reservations, contact the Franco Parenti Theater box office by calling the number 02 59995206 o via email.
