At the foot of the enormous "cretto" with its great clefts, is an image through which there runs a deep fissure. Under it, buried and mute, lay the remains of Belice's tragedy. The "cracked image" seems to encourage a revelation of voices, gestures, stuccos, stones and, especially, eyes. Sequences of looks exchanged among the old people of Gibellina, together with images of mouths welded closed by silence, empty of words with an emptiness like "bumps on cloth, like merchants' sacks, you can already guess the content from the outside: potatoes, onions, corn or flour...". Thus quotes Ritsos in the text of this piece, whose intention is less theatrical and more that of an intense flow of memory.



E dai ruderi di Gibellina si leva il canto della poesia
