    Episodes from Barone Rampante by Italo Calvino

    Arianna Scommegna reads the ninth episode:
    It was suspended to a trunk in his stuffed sack, with only the head out, as a bird. (from Italo Calvino)

    Reading to episodes from Il Barone Rampante in the enchanting scenography of the secular trees of the city parks. Every evening to the 18.30 ten excellent actors tell, day after day, the stories of Cosimo, the young baron that June 25 th 1767, after a banal quarrel with his father, jump on a tree, climbs among the branches, it passes from a plant to the other, and it decides that it won’t go down anymore.
    An evocative and symbolic narration, rich of mishaps and of meetings, of memorable characters, romantic and passionate loves, comic stories irresistibly.
    The interpreters bring in life a world fact of awakenings, of odors and noises that have the suggestive strength and prorompente of the nature to give form and voice to that world at the fantastic and poetic same time that makes of Calvino a great creator of imaginary universes and at the same time extremely shiny, real, actual.
