A MATTER OF GEOMETRIES”.
Free admission event.

The monologue was published this year by Edizioni Erasmo in the book COREA. A MATTER OF GEOMETRIES by Fabrizio Brandi, in collaboration with Enrico Pompeo.

The book – It is a story of the outskirts, of a neighborhood built with the debris of war on a triangle of land, between the oil refinery, via Aurelia, and the cemetery of the Wolves. The neighborhood is Corea, one of the many Coreas existing in Italy. A neighborhood that intersects its destiny with that of a priest who came from Florence: Don Alfredo Nesi, former classmate and friend of Don Lorenzo Milani.

“Don Alfredo Nesi arrives one winter morning at dawn, there is not a soul in the street, only stray dogs barking. They give him a room. One evening he puts on his coat, leaves the house. Outside a cold wind that cuts your face. He arrives on via Gobetti: darkness… Only a small street lamp that illuminates the sign Bar, the wind moves it ghighii, ghighii, ghighii… He enters, a great noise, a fog of smoke from unfiltered cigarettes. He approaches the counter and orders a glass of wine. Time stops, the smoke thins out, the voices quiet down. All eyes are turned to the counter. It’s like being in a Sergio Leone movie: Once upon a time in Corea…”
