Example text

E hanno intrapreso ricerche capillari per ritrovare e recuperare i figli delle uccise rapiti dagli uccisori. Ma è successo, paradossalmente, che alcuni di questi bambini, una volta ritrovati, non hanno voluto tornare dai nonni veri, perché avevano imparato ad amare i loro finti genitori ex torturatori di quelli veri. Che fare? " La villa Valguarnera era la reggia fra le case principesche della verde vallata", scrive Pitre. "`I padroni vi tenevano corte imbandita di Cavalieri e di Dame, di amici e di vassalli, di servitori e di valletti, ai quali offrivano commossa residenza in ampie stanze, grandi saloni con quadri, pitture e ornamenti in un teatro artisticamente decorato a orti e frutteti e boschetti e giardini pensili e logge e cortili e fonti e statue e quella Montagnola che e la più deliziosa delle colline, il più giocondo asilo della pace...

Ma so che ancora una volta si tratta di teatro. Sono di fronte alla solita affatturazione fra ambigua e divertita di un secolo che amava le metamorfosi profonde accompagnate dalla ironica caricatura di sè. Marianna si è costruita, basta osservare meglio il ritratto, un involucro di severità inavvicinabile. Eppure il suo 32 sguardo esprime una sapienza indulgente e profonda che non riesce a nascondersi dietro le "buone maniere". Le pupille sono chiare, luminose, appena attraversate da qualche nuvola di paura.

Rientriamo nel salone. I miei occhi cadono sul grande quadro dell'antenata che ricordo vagamente nei miei vagabondaggi infantili per la villa. E lei, Marianna, a grandezza naturale, chiusa in un vestito rigido, da cerimonia, con la croce di Malta dei grandi Nobili sul petto. I capelli gonfi, grigi, su cui spicca una rosa stinta, qualcosa di risoluto e disperato nei grandi occhi chiari. Le spalle scoperte, le braccia fasciate dalle maniche trasparenti. Anche la zia Felicita nel suo libro parla di questo quadro, ammirata: "elegantissima in guardinfante, ha la lunga vita appuntita a cono sull'abito di broccato argenteo a fini disegni in colori tenuissimi; dalla scollatura alla punta spicca una grande croce argentea ricamata sul triangolo di velluto nero che forma il davanti della vita.
