La bambina e la listrunga

By Giulia Lissoni

In un periodo compreso tra gli anni bui delle due guerre mondiali e quelli radiosi del growth economico, ai piedi delle colline della Brianza, si svolgono le vicende di una delle ultime comunità contadine di quei luoghi. L'antica corte, fatta di case di ringhiera, è il cuore del piccolo villaggio agricolo. "Al suo interno si provava l. a. sensazione di stare in un mondo a parte, una sorta di bolla sospesa nello spazio, dentro los angeles quale vecchi, adulti e bambini, intrecciavano le loro vite, quasi dimentichi del mondo esterno". Aneddoti allegri e avvenimenti drammatici si susseguono con ritmo vivace, sullo sfondo di abitudini e tradizioni locali che Giulia rivive con nostalgia, ma anche gettando uno sguardo critico su alcuni aspetti della società dell'epoca. Tra i numerosi personaggi spicca l. a. figura del padre. "Aveva realizzato un'altalena dalle funi lunghissime e mi spingeva in alto fino al cielo. Le sue forti mani sapevano trattenermi, ma anche spingermi through con forza. Quei gesti erano l. a. metafora di un modo di educare, il suo, che ha fatto di me una donna serena e coraggiosa".
