The first stage of Federigo Tozzi's lightning-fast narrative season, Bestie is a mysterious and at times indecipherable work. A collection of very short stories halfway between prose and poetry, aphorisms, glimpses, which constitute a sort of fragmentary inner journey into the anxieties of the great writer.
Beasts. Because in every story there is always a beast that appears, often unexpectedly. Almost a revelation, often unpleasant and ferocious, which displaces and makes you shiver.
Beasts. Because in this singular modern bestiary, through a series of visions, hallucinations, all the unbearable weight that a hostile and violent world assumes for the narrator, a soul "without friends, deceived every time she asked to be known ”.
The challenge is to make this word so intimate and personal, conceived as a confession, a possible scenic score for acting voices. Get in touch with the poet's intimacy. Try to "say", preserving the ineffable.
Federigo Tozzi (Siena 1883 - Rome 1920) for a long time ignored is today considered one of the most important Italian storytellers of the twentieth century. Self-taught, he is first a journalist and then a novelist: With closed eyes , Three crosses, Il podere , his most famous works. He died at the age of 37 of pneumonia.
