Il vento, di sera

The Wind, in the Evening

From the protagonist’s point of view, the wind sweeping away his love and upsetting his life coincides exactly with an act of violence that strongly affects the social and political life of the entire country. The hugeness of a terrorist attack redoubles and reverberates in a common man’s heart. An atrocious political crime is the starting point of a reflection upon human implications of a sudden death: an unintentional and unexpected desertion. We are weakly hanging by the thread of life just like leaves that “a little breath of wind could sweep away”. (B.M. Koltès).
