«Eclissica» is a journey in Capossela’s life and work in the last fifteen years, it is a book coming from the darkness of an eclypse, proceeding through flashes.
Life, like the sun, burns the eyes if you watch it while it is on flames. It is necessary to watch it through a small glass and for Capossela, writing has been that small glass. In fact, destiny, just like a whale, reveals itself when it is gone, a moment before getting back into the shadow.
Vinicio Capossela spies this season through the cracks, the prodigy, the failure that allow creation and, as an artist who stubbornly puts his works out of current times dictatorship, ends up being its finest observers. “Life welcomes us through flashes, after the protection of darkness”.
