Francesco Maselli takes us by the hand through the events, and his own involvement with them, that have marked the culture and arts of the past century. He is first of all a privileged observer, his family relationship with Luigi Pirandello and the Maselli family’s artistic and intellectual salon affording him the position of invaluable witness to events, and then mainly as a protagonist along with so many others. Frammenti di novecento brings to life the impassioned debates of the 1930s: the war, resistance, the underground, and liberation. And then, later, culture, politics, and cinema, a personal passion and a popular craze. Friends from then and now talk about these times in ways that renders their memories particularly vividly, and conjures up the feelings of yesteryear. All these fragments of memory make this an invaluable document about the past and inspires confidence in the future.
