The Alphabet of the Stars. Ottavia Casagrande her piece of sky

The sky has always been a source of inspiration for poets, scientists and lovers, interpreters of a reality that belongs to the whole of humanity and to everyone's heart: the cosmos.

Cursed, blessed, blasphemed.
Hallowed.
Electric, empty, indifferent.
Pale, leaden, disrupted by clouds, lightning.
Fire red, dawn pink, placid, blue, immense, smog yellow.
In shock, in storm, in tears.
Skew, cut, in front.
Perforated with stars, cut from the cornices, streaked with trails, punctured by gas.
Desert, geographical, hollow.
Artificial, orthodox, blue.
Lysergic, chronic, metallic.
Little dance in the garden, in the attic or in a room.
Praised, investigated, questioned, teased, insulted, painted, scrutinised, humiliated, mocked, usurped, worn out, invoked, abused.
Low, tall, black, dazzling, naked.
Absurd, ironic, polite.
Virgin, winter, silent.
Over and by mistake.

Ottavia Casagrande,

theatre director
