The author Alessandro Morbidelli will be present, Chiara Michelon and Antonella Alessandrini will also talk. This meeting is part of the festival ‘Le Marche tra le righe’, edited by lobook bookstores and dedicated to our Region’s literature. The aim is to better know ourselves, our identity, our memory and our places thanks to the stories written by authors from Marche. Under the guide of narration, we will be led to the discovery of certain elements which are particularly difficult to penetrate and to feel. To trust literature in order to tell stories, to describe the human spirit, but also the territory, nature, costumes and the personality of a region that should be discovered in its variety.
After ‘Storia nera di un naso rosso’, Alessandro Morbidelli offers to Gechi, the e-book collection by Todaro, its new book ‘Trenta cani e un bastardo’: ‘You’re a bastard of 20 years ago such as many others, you’re involved in drugs traffic in the shadow of the stage, you’re in the war between teenage gangs always ready to fight. But now, you’re in trouble and they are looking for you. You cannot do nothing but run away from Milan, leave your daily routine behind, an ordinariness lived at night, under the neon lights of nightlife and violence. So you can reach a new world, a distant one, immersed in the values of the marchigiana countryside. A world that has already been contaminated by a depressed and individualist humanity, where all seems dark and shadow. The only glimpse of light comes from that animal shelter, which is not properly an animal shelter. There you can find eyes like yours, those of the thirty dogs looked after by the old Natalino. Yet, even in this world made of simple things and solitude, violence will soon to be the one and only friend. Since nobody can chain a bastard up, because, sooner or later, the past always comes back to ask for the bill’.
According to the theme, the association Code Ribelli will be one of the guests of the Festival. They will tell us about the significance of an intense encounter with a dog which then turns into adoption.
