Thursday 17 July 2014


Books invade the MAXXI piazza with the cycle of encounters Nel baule. Ricordi e autobiografie curated by the writer and journalist Roberto Ippolito.
From July to October writers, stylists, photographers and protagonists from the worlds of show business and art will be alternating on the imposing 8½ stage: from Gianni Berengo Gardin to Dacia Maraini, from Lina Wertmuller to Pupi Avati and many others.

Eight events with a relaxed atmosphere in which the protagonists will be trawling through their memories to describe episodes, meetings and periods of their personal and professional lives to provide a key to the understanding of their books.

“A bolted door that
I had camouflaged so well as
to forget it even existed;
a wall, a closed, impenetrable barrier”

Bagheria is the autobiographical novel by Dacia Maraini in which she abandons fiction, expedient and standardization to bring together the strands of her past that so marked her, to recover, her island childhood, the maternal side she rejected in the name of ideological choices, of at times ineffable sensations, of repudiations buried in the subconscious before being deliberately embraced.
