«Uomo e natura qui sono più vicini»
I viaggi in Calabria di Alberto Saviniolock_openopen access
In Partita rimandata. Diario calabrese, Alberto Savinio’s writing is so digressing that singular metamorphic visions take precedence over the ideological clash of 1948: a ferry-boat becomes a female-ship, the palms of a public garden liven like Luciano’s woman-vines, lamb-like or ram-headed men appear here and there. Reggio, Catanzaro, Crotone, Cosenza: the steps that Savinio brings to the readers’ knowledge are not many, but sufficient to better define a powerfully visionary style, elaborating an idea of Calabria that integrates the present, the history, the myth.
