The Aesopus fairytale tells that, when summer ends, the provident ant will pass a good winter, the cicada that has squandered everything instead will die for cold. But what happens if the wheat beans put aside by the ant are no longer sufficient to face the winter? The cicadas is an intimate journey in the life of those who, already retired or ready to retire, find themselves still struggling to survive, because the welfare state is no longer enough to guarantee a serene “age of rest”.
