t is about bodies, in their nakedness and their ecstasy, in
their turmoil of desire or in their silent withdrawal … but
it is also about souls, with their delusions and reasons, with
their enchantments and fears.
If the lazarettos and asylums were places for concealment
and confinement, these stories challenge the borders of those
cloistered universes, to show us that their realities were always
on the outside, in our world, that great lazaretto hidden
in itself.
Here they come to life and provide space to the disturbing
vital transits of wounded beings, marked by unusual affections,
in a fascinating theater of seductions and phobias,
ghosts and blindness, loves and limits that with the brush of
strangeness, delineate the invisible plot of human existence.
