Fish have no feet

“FRIDAY RE-VERSO” “Time treats us strangely – most often unexpected”. Have you ever read a book that is a blizzard? Let’s try talk about this blizzard done of pages and ink. “Story of a family”, the subtitle. And as the wise man said, every happy family and so on. This family has its roots in the water, if the fish have no legs it is because the immensity of the sea does not allow for the surface,...

Franco Parenti Theater

The Franco Parenti Theater, the theatrical and cultural center of reference in the city of Milan, is 50 years old on January 16, 2023! The 2022/2023 season is a very special season for Parenti that has its roots in its history, without melancholy but with a spirit of rediscovery, with a careful look at the present and new developments, cultivating an inexhaustible curiosity for the future. Founded in 1972 and directed by Andrée Ruth Shammah, the Parenti...

Master and Servant

“Nikita had no desire to go, but he had long since grown accustomed to not having a will of his own and serving others.” Let’s start with the title “Master and Servant” which in other editions and translations had been translated into Master and Servant. It is precisely through the title that one has already parachuted into a hidden world of moral and philological meanings on the substantial difference between Servant and Servant, and from...

The word dad

The books chosen by Andrea Salonia This review is available only in the original language _________________________________________________________________________ Nulla. Non c’è niente da fare: il tema è il mio. Genitore. Padre. Madre. L’attesa. L’incognita. La sorpresa. Il dolore. La frustrazione. L’agitazione. L’inquietudine. Il senso di inadeguatezza. Il turbamento. La superficialità. Il subbuglio. I silenzi. Il silenzio tra due persone quando stanno bene, che ha una certa qual frequenza alta e vibrante – scrive Cavina – mentre quello di...

Behind the Door

“Misfortune had made a man out of him.” Moving like few other books, capable of touching the dormant childhood within each of us. With this long story, Bassani delves into his memories as a boy, up to take us to the beginning of the school year of 1929-30 in a classical high school, in his beloved Ferrara (the city of Bassani’s heart!). The shyness of the protagonist and a character that has not yet fully...

The cover of the sea

“Sometimes just being with someone helps you grow.” Although we really like the author’s style, with its dilated times, inside and outside the thoughts of the protagonist, able to indirectly tell the essence of Japanese culture and lifestyle, this time we have found the initial part of the story too long. A penance not deserved by the reader, like a long airport runway, which the plane is forced to travel to the last centimeter of...

Brood

The books chosen by Andrea Salonia This review is available only in the original language _________________________________________________________________________ Come resistere a un romanzo il cui titolo recita “Quattro galline” ? Io non sono riuscito: questa nuova scrittrice americana, Jackie Polzin, alla sua prima opera di parole, è stata davvero capace di catturare la mia attenzione. Lei, la copertina nera con una avvenente gallina di razza Dominicana, un geroglifico nero in campo bianco-crema, cresta e piccolo bargiglio rosso,...

Endless love

“FRIDAY RE-VERSO” “There was nothing I could say about that world except that I had known it, that it had been mine, that it still was.”   Cosidering that there is a lot to talk about, here is a brief summary of the plot: forced by her father to separate from his beloved Jade, David Axelrod sets the family home on fire, with nebulous and somewhat delusional purposes. Here it begins: for four years, two of...

Carcano Theater

Corso di Porta Romana, for many centuries the center of city elegance, was the place of choice for the construction, in 1803, of a new large theater. The area was that of the former convent of San Lazzaro, purchased by Giuseppe Carcano, who had already opened a private theater in his palace in 1797, a space that soon became insufficient to accommodate the large audience that attended it. To build it, the architect Luigi Canonica...

Eggman

The books chosen by Andrea Salonia This review is available only in the original language _________________________________________________________________________ Adoro le parole scritte che si stemperano nel bel mezzo degli ingredienti nella descrizione dei cibi che prendon vita. Vocali e consonanti insieme alla farina, allo zucchero e al sale. Al fianco dell’olio. Perfino con la maionese. Lo trovo un connubio talmente magico da diventare uno sposalizio bello e buono. E questo accade sia per il fascino che la mescolanza...
