MARIO NANNI, '' ON THE CAROUSEL OF MEMORY.

Six generations of people and words '' (Media & Books, p. 383, € 19.00)

Salentino di Nardò, Mario Nanni brought to light his childhood in a beautiful memoir. But don't expect the shrewd journalist, capable of unpublished portraits of the Italian Parliament, to dwell on personal affairs. As in his style, Nanni knows how to draw from his great experience as a Salento arrived in Rome in 1975, graduated in philosophy, parliamentary journalist since 1977 who has followed several seasons of Italian history from the heart of that system called Parliament up to top positions. In this case he starts from his childhood in a Salento that smells of other centuries, where the practice is still that of sharecropping, the non-existent technology and man relies on his arms and his cunning as for millennia.

The author literally places the reader on a carousel, takes him to the Masseria del Fiume, makes him meet around the hearth of the evening legendary stories and characters such as that of the farmer Paolo, father master in his own way philosopher of that small ancient world that dominates with unparalleled energies. Men who know how to tell stories with extraordinary storytelling skills because they are the only form of entertainment, perhaps together with that of love with plots from a romance novel which was then rumored far and wide, each putting his own. '' A verbal and sound heritage - writes Nanni - handed down from father to son, and here recovered and rescued from oblivion ''. A historical and philological work, therefore, which does not however pretend to be pleasantly read.For this reason the chapters alternate between different eras, with photos and poems rediscovered in a precious sequence of faces and situations. With the `` clerical '' tales and the bishop who invoked the fascists in the countryside, libertine priests, school memories, portraits of teachers and masters, Assunta Colazzo, Luigi Tarricone, Luigi Camassa, Nicola Cavallo, Antimo Negri, Giuseppe Prestipino up to Sergio Lepri, historical director of ANSA when you still had the desire and the ability to want to leave a mark on future generations. Even Nanni, who at ANSA was for a long time, also at the head of the political-parliamentary editorial staff and then central editor-in-chief, with the usual light-hearted tone, but which conceals a depth of story that sometimes moves.with photos and poems rediscovered in a precious sequence of faces and situations.

'' This book - he explains - is a 'celebration of memory', rather than memories. Voices of a past, of generations, made up of anecdotes, proverbs, wisdom mottos, school and university memories, figures of teachers, voices of Parliament ''. In short, the author, through his experience, tries to demonstrate that the so-called popular culture, that of our grandparents (to whom the book is dedicated among others), has its own nobility. But Mario Nanni does even more, he makes it alive.
