Federico Olivetti

Regista e drammaturgo

Verso Casa

Michele è un ragazzino sardo, orfano di padre, simpatico e ribelle. Una mattina salta la scuola e raggiunge una città di mare, apparentemente disabitata. Si perde tra le strade della città, ha un incidente, si spaventa e torna a casa. Chiede aiuto alla madre, ma viene ignorato. Fugge, e vaga solo e abbandonato, come un cane randagio, tra ruderi e sentieri selvaggi, spingendosi sempre più lontano dal mare. Spossato, scende in una gola di terra rossa, in fondo alla quale consumerà una violenza che lo cambierà per sempre.

Il genio può recitare la commedia sul bordo della tomba con una gioia che gli impedisce di vedere la tomba stessa, così perduto com’egli è in un paradiso che esclude ogni idea di tomba e di distruzione.
