The title, taken from the notebook Memorie di Adriano by Marguerite Yourcenar, speaks to the topic of the memory and its renegotiation through the mechanism of narration. This is the fil rouge of the four works presented.

Says Yourcenar: «Everything escapes us. All. Even ourselves. My very existence, if I had to tell it in writing I would reconstruct with difficulty as if it were that of another. […] Whatever you do, you always reconstruct the monument in your own way. The stones of reality are only the starting point. Every being who has lived the human adventure is me».

From different perspectives, the four works re-call the idea of memory through the formal mechanisms of verisimilitude as strategies that calls into question the possibility of a new reality.

Artists and works on display: Lia Cecchin, OLGA (Outdoor Lab for Gathering the Absence); Romina De Novellis, Arachne; Riccardo Giacconi e Carolina Valencia Caicedo, Scarcagnuli; Elena Mazzi e Rosario Sorbello, En Route to the South – parallel migrations.
