The monologue in a soft, musical dialect is a touching journey intimate in a posthumous confession of a son to a dead mother in a province anchored in patterns and relationships that should be cleared for decades in Italy never really cutting edge and full of discrimination for a different, but then different from those, who has taken on the task of indicating the arrogant attitude.
It ‘a journey back in the memories of ephemeral pleasure and superficial happiness that burns in the short span of a blink of an eye and pain have never been lost in the trash never completely metabolized that made this mild man tired, tired of fighting and that only in this now, in this place, a cemetery finally feels free to reveal to a mother whose immense love had given him the strength to understand through the folds of the soul this child more deeply than he thought, and accepts them with its peculiarities believing each of us unique and deserving of full acceptance and true love.
