Diana Sganappa makes a attentive revision of the essays written by her father Fernando throughout his life and makes the long ago words flow with the lively spice of a generic central Italian dialect.
These are episodes, comic in their simplicity, ancient gestures of daily life in a lost world, tricks, sentiments that are the soul of this series of stories. For every story of rural life there are some concession and episodes of the country life. The hard work, the difficulties that did not impede the various characters to live, and enjoy fully their lives. Above all, the veil of time that like a breath of wind, holds up these pages to see a slice of the past.
