By Katharina Maier

Lebensweisheiten überbrücken die Abgründe von Zeit und Subjektivität und wenden sich dem Allgemein-Menschlichen zu. Sie geben uns Orientierung, lassen uns einen Blick auf den Grund der Dinge werfen oder holen uns auf den Boden der Tatsachen zurück. Aus reicher Erfahrung oder momenthafter Erkenntnis entsprungen, lassen uns Lebensweisheiten für einen Augenblick innehalten und reißen uns aus der alltäglichen Akzeptanz des Lebens als Selbstverständlichkeit.

By Rossella Milone

L'ostinato perdurare dell'amore di fronte alla malattia. Due sorelle diversissime, divise da anni di silenzi e incomprensioni. Un padre anziano che make a decision di risposarsi, costringendo los angeles figlia a confrontarsi con il grigiore del proprio matrimonio. Da una giovane narratrice napoletana, tre racconti lunghi di sorprendente intensità. Tre storie di donne spaventate dalla libertà, abituate a vivere con lo sguardo rivolto all'indietro, perché in fondo «tutto quello che succede è un ricordo». Arriva un momento in cui il peso delle scelte compiute s'ingrossa fino a travolgerci. I fantasmi del passato chiedono il conto, seguendo un disegno oscuro e inarrestabile che s'intreccia con i legami famigliari e poi scende in profondità, consistent with dare forma a «una solitudine dilagante che pian piano prende spazio nella carne, fino a diventare tessuto essa stessa». Lena ha accantonato los angeles sua carriera accademica according to dedicarsi interamente al marito, gravemente malato. Il giorno dell'inaugurazione della stazione faunistica che lei avrebbe dovuto dirigere, si trova faccia a faccia con quel mondo che credeva di aver chiuso fuori dalla porta. Silvana e Carmen hanno lo stesso padre, ma non potrebbero essere più diversified: sottomessa e rispettosa l. a. prima, estroversa e calcolatrice los angeles seconda. Fin da bambina Silvana ha vissuto all'ombra della sorella, e rivederla dopo tanti anni risveglierà in entrambe un rancore sordo, «simile a un conforto». great è intontita da una vita che le sembra una perdita di pace, da un marito capitatole quasi in keeping with caso e poi accantonato in un angolo insieme a molti altri pensieri. Quando il vecchio padre si risposa con los angeles signorina Teresa, great si sente tradita: accettare los angeles felicità altrui le sembra un compito impossibile. Tre storie, tre destini, tre donne: ciascuna di loro è fotografata nel momento esatto in cui l'amore, los angeles solitudine, il coraggio e il dolore, convergono in un unico punto. È allora che i ricordi diventano ciò che di più prezioso abbiamo, e confrontarsi con i propri errori e le proprie debolezze sembra l'unica through consistent with affrontare le difficoltà del presente. «La memoria sola sopravvive. Se lo cube più volte, nella testa, lo ripete come un mantra, come un Padre Nostro, le serve una qualsiasi forma di preghiera che possa convincerla». Con una voce densa e profondamente istintiva, Rossella Milone riflette sulla vita e sulla morte, compiendo a ogni pagina una dissezione di memorie e affetti di straordinaria maturità. «Si chiede come ci sia finita lì, in quel posto bellissimo, quando sente che i suoi posti adesso sono altri. Certi luoghi li riempie consistent with finta, in step with sbaglio, il suo corpo non possiede più gli strumenti consistent with convivere col mondo».
