The home is a place that has inspired authors throughout history, a space that has been applied in many different ways in literature: the home as a physical or imaginary place, a closed space of family remembrance or a chosen environment for the manifestations of the subconscious. We leave our traces on the homes in which we have lives, as they leave their traces on us. Michele Mari speaks about his homes, those where he spent long periods during childhood, and he does so though images, through “fetishes”, as per the book’s subtitle. In a tale that intertwines with photographs by Francesco Pernigo, Mari invites us inside his homes, showing us hidden corners, through anecdotes and quotations, a history that is inextricably linked to the objects that populate them. What emerges is a literary identity evoked through the physical traces of a personal and familiar story, an ambiguous identity like those, alluded to in the title, in Borges’ Asterion and Poe’s Usher. 

 

Michele Mari lives in Milan, where he teaches Italian literature at the Università Statale, and in Rome. In addition to numerous essays and volumes, he has published fourteen works of fiction, such as Di bestia in bestia, Tu, sanguinosa infanzia, Tutto il ferro della torre Eiffel, Verderame, Rosso Floyd and Roderick Duddle for some of the largest Italian publishing houses. He has also the author of a number of comics and the poetry collection Cento poesie d’amore a Ladyhawke. He also translates for a number of different publishing houses. 

 

Francesco Pernigo was born in Rovereto in 1978. He lives and works between Trentino and Sardinia, dedicating himself to projects linked to the territory and the relationship between objects and their cultural context. In terms of his photographic research, he loves to quote a phrase by Robert Walser, who perfectly summarizes the sense of his work: “'We don't need to see anything out of the ordinary. We already see so much.”
