Scontro di civiltà per un ascensore a piazza Vittorio - Amara Lakhous

Product Description

Scontro di civiltà per un ascensore a piazza Vittorio - Amara Lakhous

letto da Francesco Acquaroli

Regia Flavia Gentili

Durata 3h 54m

Versione audiolibro integrale

Il corpo del Gladiatore, un piccolo delinquente, viene trovato riverso in una pozza di sangue nell’ascensore di un palazzo in piazza Vittorio, cuore multietnico di Roma. Le indagini si concentrano su Amedeo, esule algerino amico di tutti, ma i suoi condomini coltivano ipotesi diverse. Un racconto corale in cui si intrecciano tante verità: quelle dell’aspirante regista olandese, della bisbetica portiera napoletana, del professore milanese che detesta i romani, del cuoco iraniano che odia la pizza, della signora che vive per il suo cagnolino, della badante peruviana e della ragazza impegnata nel volontariato. 

--

A small culturally mixed community living in an apartment building in the center of Rome is thrown into dissaray when one of the tenants is murdered. As each of the victim's neighbors is questioned by the police, readers are offered an all-access pass into the most colorful neighborhood in contemporary Rome. Each character takes his or her turn "giving evidence," recounting his or her story—the drama of racial identity, the anxieties and daily humiliations born of a life spent on society's margins, but also the hilarious imbroglios that are inevitable in this melting pot of cultures.

What emerges is a moving story that is common to us all. With language that is as colorful as the neighborhood it describes, Clash of Civilizations Over an Elevator in Piazza Vittorio is characterized by a seemingly effortless prose that borrows from the cinematic tradition of the Commedia all'Italiana, as exemplified by directors such as Federico Fellini.

At the heart of this bittersweet comedy, winner of Italy's prestigious Flaiano Prize for Fiction, is a social reality we often tend to ignore and an anthropological analysis, refreshing in its generosity, that cannot fail to fascinate.
