Sicile(s) d'aujourd'hui by Luigi Allegri( )

1 edition published in 2018 in French and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Loin des stéréotypes qui enveloppent souvent l’image de “la” Sicile et occultent la complexité du réel, cet ouvrage s’attache à montrer la richesse et la diversité des Sicile(s) d’aujourd’hui. Les plus éminents représentants de la société civile et judiciaire, opérateurs culturels ou spécialistes des arts (littérature, théâtre, cinéma, BD) y confrontent leurs analyses. De grands artistes débattent des enjeux de la création dans le devenir de leur pays. Se révèle ainsi la tension constructive entre poids de l’Histoire et urgence de l’actualité, entre mémoire de la tradition et élans novateurs, entre passivité du désespoir et énergie de la révolte. Hors de tout repli dans une insularité close, les ferments sociaux, politiques, éthiques et esthétiques qui naissent et se développent en Sicile, ou à partir de la Sicile, apparaissent comme une force vitale essentielle. Le lecteur y reconnaîtra alors une sorte de “laboratoire” – sicilien, italien et/ou européen – du courage et de la créativité. Far from the stereotypes that often encompass the image of Sicily and mask the complexity of the reality, this work seeks to show the richness and diversity of the Sicile(s) d’aujourd’hui. Within, the most eminent representatives of civil and judicial society, cultural actors and arts specialists (literature, theatre, cinema, comics) compare their analyses. Some great artists discuss the role of artistic creation in the country’s future, thus revealing the constructive tension between the weight of history and the urgency of the current age, between memory of tradition and innovative trends, between the passivity of hopelessness and the energy of revolt. The artists from Sicily do not turn into themselves, but as implicated in social, political, ethical and aesthetic dynamics, they appear to be a vital essential force. The reader will be met with a sort of “laboratory”—Sicilian, Italian and/or European—of courage and creativity
