Palimpseste sentimental
Add to selectionDownload PDF
 

Following in the footsteps of Goethe, Stendhal and numerous anonymous travellers, the author desires to recreate the famous Roman itinerary. She trades the archaic travel diary for a video camera, and uses the contemporary means that it offers to the traveller. To each his own alibi; places, dates and all details possessing touristic interest are hidden, in the quest of impressions and lasting images, which are inevitably swept away by time.
