Una scrittura della memoria. Le prose e i versi di Maria Attanasio
MetadataShow full item record
Maria Attanasio (born in 1943) is an author of novels, stories, poetic collections, essays and a photographic book illustrated by the shots of Giuseppe Leone, a refined iconotesto whose subtitle reveals a clear Sciascian inspiration: Il divino e il meraviglioso. Feste religiose in Sicilia. The work of Attanasio, who published with Sellerio short novels such as Correva l’anno 1698 e nella città avvenne il fatto memorabile, Di Concetta e le sue donne and Il falsario di Caltagirone, is in some ways close to the formula of the Sciascian “cronachette”, which the writer has renamed “little chronicles” (“piccole cronache”). In her novels and in her verses the problems of memory, of archives, of documents and therefore of re-writing are central.
