Pirandello e la dissoluzione della personalità (Lecture)

Pirandello e la dissoluzione della personalità (Lecture)

One of Italy’s foremost intellectuals speaks on the giants of Italian culture, Prof. Remo Bodei.

The Italian Cultural Institute and Co.As.It. are proud to invite you to a lecture;

Pirandello e la dissoluzione della personalità

(Talk in Italian)

Seguendo le posizioni di alcuni “medici-filosofi” francesi (Théodule Ribot, Paul Janet e Pierre Binet), che alla fine dell’Ottocento avevano distrutto l’immagine di un io monolitico e di un’anima immortale, Pirandello ha spinto sino al virtuosismo l’analisi delle scissioni della coscienza, ha descritto il prodursi di personalità sdoppiate o multiple e ha trattato con acume le fratture e le deformazioni psichiche. Ha così sperimentato le configurazioni della coscienza scissa di un individuo, simultaneamente o alternativamente sedotto dalla tranquillizzante sicurezza di essere “uno”, dall’angoscia e dallo sconcerto di accorgersi di essere “centomila” e dal sollievo derivante dall’ascetica decisione di azzerarsi per essere “nessuno”. Ben sessanta opere di Pirandello – tra racconti, romanzi e drammi – trattano della scissione (duplicazione o moltiplicazione), della perdita (vera o simulata, come nel romanzo Il fu Mattia Pascal) che scopre di non essere unica e compatta. La società ci incatena al principio di individuazione perché vuole vincolarci alle nostre azioni e ai nostri pensieri (in quanto preludi all’agire), fissarci a un unico e permanente io. La natura fissa ciascuno in determinate fattezze corporee, attribuendogli determinate ascendenze familiari; la società pretende poi di classificarlo secondo propri parametri. Entrambe, però, cospirano nel trasformarlo in un “individuo”, perché lo vogliono – alla lettera – indivisibile e sempre uguale a se stesso, ossia “integro”, cosciente, responsabile.

Official YouTube Trailer

"Aveva quattordici anni quando, nel 2011, si è tolto la vita per esasperazione e isolamento: esasperato dalle minacce di chi lo perseguitava; isolato perché nessuno poteva aiutarlo. La sua colpa? Essere gay. Un episodio agghiacciante che è stato dimenticato in fretta. Il regista cagliaritano Giovanni Coda, già al TGLFF 2013 con Il rosa nudo, ne ricorda la dolorosa memoria, dando voce a chi, come J.R., è stato vittima dell'omofobia. Con un film sperimentale che combina cinema tradizionale e videoarte."

Nomit is pleased to announce ITA.Lab: a new Italian indie hub in town.

"Carissimi"

I am writing on behalf of the new not-for-profit association called Nomit. We are committed to assisting the new wave of Italian migrants and renewing the representation of the Italian culture in Melbourne.

We thought of reaching out hoping we could join forces to connect Italians and Australians, older and younger generations, thanks to our common passion for Italian culture.

As part of our mission, we are launching a new program of educational activities (Italian language and culture classes, attached). We are sure second and third generations' Italians could particularly benefit and enjoy from them.

If you need further information, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Best Wishes,

A presto!
Francesca
