AMORE (2 atti)
Amore is a parable in 2 acts on art and poetic inspiration.
The parable means to show:
Languages of the 2 acts:
1. D, symbolic fabula:
The scene (or rather the speech) takes place in a foreign big café, or restaurant.
Now: which creature do you suppose can rise or come to life, if you prefer, out of such a speech on a cloudy night?
Anyway, after having reached its top, the big noise in the hall attenuates. Then the whole café (or restaurant) gets the miserable and alarming appearance that is characteristic, at certain intermediate moments, of the places that can only take life out of the public or in solitude (restaurants, cafés, hospitals, theatres).
So that scene goes on until the blonde woman with the letter P enters. Everyone clicks his tongue at her sight, because she simply and only looks like a beautiful blonde woman. But when she lifts her only eye on D everyone thinks: now she goes away and I will never see her again!
2. P, linguistic demonstration (in three phases):
1) Propaedeutic to P language.
2) Original fragment in P language. Legend:
3) Gridelin: a muddy dawn cuts off every speech.
AMORE (2 atti) is inspired by La piccola Apocalisse di Tommaso Landolfi, from which also a large part of this dispatch draws inspiration.
