Casarola, Italia (2013). Serie Ultimo Domicilio.
Casarola è un villaggio perso tra i monti dell'Appennino parmense. La famiglia Bertolucci si è trasferita qui tanto tempo fa. Arrivarono dalla Maremma, in accordo con quello che ci dice la prima poesia della raccolta La camera da letto, uno dei lavori più noti di Attilio Bertolucci. Il titolo si riferisce alla camera angolare dove Attilio dormiva con sua moglie Ninetta e dove tanta della sua poesia ha avuto origine. Attilio è uno dei maggiori poeti italiani del XIX secolo. La sua vita, il suo mondo interiore e il suo lavoro sono indissolubilmente legati a Casarola. I suoi figli Bernardo e Giuseppe sono cresciuti qui. E' dove hanno cominciato a fare esperienza del mondo e della natura dentro e fuori di sè.
La mitologica, fantastica e intima relazione con le spesse mura di questa casa e con ciò che vi si trovava intorno è stata la fonte ancestrale della loro creatività, il luogo dove realtà ed immaginazione coabitano: gli occhi di un uomo e dei suoi figli sotto l'ala protettiva di una moglie e una madre piena d'amore trasformano quotidianamente la bellezza e il mistero in visione.

Casarola, Italy (2013). Series Last Domicile.
Casarola is a remote village lost in the mountains close to Parma. The Bertolucci family moved there some time in the XVIII Century. They arrived from Maremma, southern Tuscany, according to the first poem in the collection La camera da letto (The Bedroom), one of the most important and known works by Attilio Bertolucci. The title refers to the corner bedroom where Attilio slept with his wife Ninetta and where most of his poems were written. Attilio is one of the most unique and influential Italian poets of the Twentieth Century. His work, life, and inner universe are permanently tied to Casarola. His sons Bernardo and Giuseppe grew up there. It’s where they began to experience the world and nature that lived in and outside themselves, the place where their imaginary lives and visions were created. Ninetta blessed them with a sense of nurturing that followed Bernardo and Giuseppe throughout their lives. After leaving Casarola, they all moved to Rome. Through the years, the kids opened their knowledge, consciousness, and influences to a much wider and complex world. Bernardo became a world-acclaimed director. Giuseppe developed a particular talent for screenwriting and directing as well. Casarola is where it all began – the mythological, fantastic, and intimate relationship with the big walls of that house and everything in and around it, were the source of their primordial creativity. The house is the origin, a place where reality and imagination cohabited: the hungry eyes of a man and his sons – protected and blessed by the caring embrace of a woman and mother – daily transformed beauty and mystery into vision. Poetry’s touch created a new world for everyone.
