  • Download Fiabe centimetropolitane (AsSaggi) (Italian Edition) by Elio PDF

    By Elio

    Surreale è tutto ciò che non potrebbe mai succedere. Ma se poi succedesse lo stesso?
    A questa domanda Elio ha sempre cercato di rispondere, con le sue canzoni e ogni altro mezzo, costruendo castelli di ipotesi in aria che acquistavano realtà through through che sollevavano pinnacoli immaginari: oggi nessuno più dubita dell’esistenza di un vitello dai piedi di balsa. Trenta secoli di buon senso ci hanno fatto credere che una fiaba con animali, da Esopo in poi, sia solo un modo cifrato di parlare della realtà: los angeles cosiddetta allegoria.
    Ma c’è ben altro nel dare l. a. parola alle bestie. Una minaccia in step with l’ordine delle cose, e una speranza di riscatto in keeping with tutti gli universi paralleli. Se poi los angeles fiaba finisce nel mirino alieno di uno scrittore (e scrittore Elio lo è sempre stato, almeno da quando lo è diventato) consistent with il quale il surreale non ha niente di irreale, allora le storie si tendono al verosimile, le bestie non spacciano più pillole di velato buon senso, ma si limitano a vivere l. a. loro vita quietamente assurda infischiandosene di noi lettori stupiti ed esilarati, e los angeles lettura si trasforma in una specie di iniziazione.
    La zoologia del pianeta Elio non contiene solo giraffe, pettirossi e grillitalpa, ma opera innesti nei regni cosiddetti naturali, e genera alberi antropomorfi, nobiluomini di cristallo e di cotone, autoarticolati ambiziosi, ammaestratori di cozze, coccodrilli idrosolubili e through surrealizzando. Si trip molto, ma anche in keeping with difendersi, giacché sotto sotto serpeggia l. a. stessa inquietudine che circola nei capolavori di Lewis Carroll: che il surreale sia soltanto il reale di qualcun altro.
