«Ho sempre desiderato di avere un grande album»
L’esperienza della memoria in Album di vestiti di Paola Masino, scrittrice e giornalista del Novecento
The posthumous work Album di vestiti, although not a real diary, constitutes an example of private writing capable of retracing the salient passages of the personal and literary story of Paola Masino, author and journalist of the 20th century. These are autobiographical pages where Masino reflects on the themes of motherhood, marriage, her concept of literature and the interest in the chromatic sphere expressed in her volumes. A work of memory, therefore, a ‘biography of clothes’ capable of revealing the dynamics that led to the drafting of some of the most famous passages of Paola Masino’s writings, as well as episodes related to the dear figures of the father Enrico Alfredo and Massimo Bontempelli.
