Story about a man who reclaims his past. Giovanni Astengo keeps his life at arm's length: the father of a 12-year-old girl with Down syndrome, Stella, and a forlorn, world-weary 20-year-old, Lorenzo, Giovanni is also still searching for his own lost father, who vanished during a period of political terrorism in 1977. Revisiting the country house his parents used to frequent, Giovanni discovers there that he can call his 13-year-old self (on the eve of his father's disappearance, no less) by dialing his old phone number. Over the phone, Giovanni tries to change the future by having his younger self look for clues about his father's disappearance. There are fascinating intellectual tenets coursing through Veltroni's work, and the bond that forms between the two Giovannis is beautifully realized, as is the clarity that the older Giovanni finally achieves

Quando cade l'acrobata, entrano i clown : Heysel, l'ultima partita by Walter Veltroni( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in Italian and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

È notte. Un uomo è sul terrazzo di una stanza d'albergo sul mare; è qui per festeggiare il suo decimo anniversario di matrimonio. La donna dorme. L'uomo ripensa alla loro storia d'amore, a una relazione costruita sulla sincerità. Ritorna con il pensiero agli anni trascorsi e a un'unica bugia: un viaggio. Aveva mentito sulla destinazione, per vedere una partita di calcio: la finale di Coppa dei Campioni Juventus-Liverpool, a Bruxelles. L'uomo ripensa a quella partita, allo stadio malandato dove si svolgeva, l'Heysel. Ritorna al dramma di una vicenda che doveva essere allegra e giocosa, grandi e bambini insieme per condividere una passione. E che invece era diventata una battaglia, un insensato perdersi della ragione nella cecità della violenza. La parola Heysel avrebbe da allora significato morte: trentanove morti e seicento feriti innocenti. Una strage immane per una partita di calcio, una ferita aperta e non più rimarginata. Nonostante la strage fosse già consumata, si era deciso, per motivi di sicurezza, di giocare egualmente. Una narrazione lirica volta a ricordare una strage assurda, che ha stravolto tutto ciò che di positivo lo sport rappresenta. Tutto, attraverso lo sguardo commovente di una storia d'amore

Airports & stars( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in 3 languages and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Airports & Stars, a collection of photographs of Hollywood actors, royalty and other celebrities from the golden age of Italian film - the 1950s and 1960s - arriving in Rome, back when comings and goings were event enough to merit a flash, and when the photographers who are now known as paparazzi could walk right up to the airplane steps. Here those independent lensmen - a profession and a genre born in the era documented here, one on the forefront of new realism and photojournalism - capture the salutes and waves, flamboyant and discreet, of Rome's stars as they descended to earth, seizing the mythical something that they seemed to bring with them from the sky to terra firma. Each arrival was a striking performance on a then-novel stage, and the work of paparazzi has preserved this invaluable slice of la dolce vita. Perhaps by bequeathing these charming and glamorous moments to history and extending their subjects' fame into the next century, the paparazzi make amends for all the compromising snapshots with which they troubled their famous subjects, and for spawning the multinational empire of celebrity spy photography that dominates today's news media
