Le rivolte inestirpabili, text by Erri De Luca and photographs byDanilo De Marco, – published by Forum editrice universitaria udinese – is a small booklet that fits comfortably in one hand. However, when you start reading it, it becomes as dense as a puppy’s rosy belly, where everything lies in perfect balance.
Turning from page to page is a punch in the stomach. It is an interweaving of words and photographs that can speak for themselves and demand to be looked into their eyes. So much that you can’t tear your eyes away till the end. And only because there are no more pages.
It speaks of a “world that no longer has dawns, nor giants“. A world that is “trying to guess which disease, among the many laid down, will decimate it.”
And it is the two of them who do it, “two disabled people in the age of the frightened by the scarecrows, the straw puppets that advise people to shut themselves indoors and stir up private insecurity. (…) Disabled in the age that hopes for lotteries, not fights. ”
Le rivolte inestirpabili is a book for those who want to listen, fight and then tell.
