“An autobiography in the form of a landscape”. This is how Marco Belpoliti defines his book on the Po Valley: not a treatise, nor a historiographical essay, but a delving into the cultural imagination and the collective history of a “crucially important region of Italy, faced with an identity crisis”. Belpoliti’s investigation involves many “children” of this land (like the Ravenna-based Marco Martinelli and Ermanna Montanari), and draws the map of a future that tries to match the past in passions, ethics and history. The region of Emilia looms distant, yet it is close; homely, yet “paranoid”. Emilia also features as the poetic and biographical epicentre of Giovanni Lindo Ferretti, another explorer of worlds and cultures, who will revive the most iconic repertoire of CCCP and CSI “with a happy heart”.
