Sample text

Ma Giacomino è davvero “Infinito”: è del 2012 l’ultima grande traduzione americana delle sue liriche. Se fosse stato un poeta dei nostri anni sarebbe sicuramente finito a fare la spalla di Paolo Bonolis su Canale 5. Noi invece ce lo teniamo stretto sui libri di scuola e dietro la siepe intatta in quel di Recanati. Apriamo il capitolo Alessandro Manzoni? Apriamolo con quella “storia della colonna infame”. Renzo e Lucia riempiono ancora oggi le prime pagine dei giornali, si contendono la fama solo son Giulietta e Romeo, che pure han dovuto migrare letterariamente in Italia per trovare la patria perfetta del loro amore.

Chi dice donna... dice mamma! E' inutile nasconderlo: le donne italiane sono le migliori donne del mondo. Non solo perché nella penisola, percorsa da nord a sud, troviamo tutto il genere femminile nella sua ampia bellezza, ma anche e soprattutto perché la donna italiana ha nel tempo raggiunto la perfezione. Perfezione e completezza. La miscela o la ricetta farmaceutica che ha prodotto la donna italiana è frutto di secoli di lenta maturazione. Etruschi, romani, popoli italiani, mescolanze longobarde, repubbliche marinare, le donne amate e amabili del trecento dantesco (e non solo), le dame rinascimentali, le corti granducali, i regni protoitalici settecenteschi, hanno cullato e poi generato il primato femminile.

Gli esempi sono ancora molti, moltissimi. Tutti gli anni ’70 quando la penisola era diventata crocevia dove si incontravano palestinesi dell’Olp di Arafat, la Stasi i servizi segreti della Germania orientale, il Mossad israeliano, la Cia, le commesse petrolifere di Algeria, Libia e Tunisia sottratte dall’Eni a Francia e Inghilterra. E lo sgretolamento dell’Unione Sovietica e la conseguente distruzione del blocco di Varsavia fu frutto di studio e calcolo a Roma, tra documenti in italiano e non in americano o altre lingue.
