You are invited to the book presentation by Italian author Giuseppe Ruffo “Trilogia Napoletana” Magmata edizioni.
The book is divided into three periods: The Bile of Naples, The Earthquakes, Naples Horror.
“Giuseppe Ruffo’s short stories return a narrative of the city of Naples that we can translate to any other metropolis.
As the author traverses the city slowly, changing pace, he manages to capture nuances that would otherwise be lost in the frenetic, superficial pace of everyday life and forces us readers to slow down as well.
In the first part of the Ruffo Trilogy he describes to us men who come from afar, dark stories. The stories are an attempt to answer some of the questions he poses: are immigrants happy in our city ? What do they think of us ? And of Naples ?… In the second part a visceral writing, from the bottom, which returns the humus of an era, that of the post-earthquake of November 23, 1980 … In the third part the author in a sci-fi, grotesque key tells the Naples of clichés.”
During the presentation of the book, the writer Giuseppe Ruffo is scheduled to participate with the reading of some stories, which will be accompanied by a sound environment, curated by musicians: Paolo Termini and Roberto Pugliese. Also planned is a projection of drawings in reference to the stories written by the author, by artists Raffaele Scarienzo and Salvatore Garzillo.
