Quella di Massimo Mila consistent with Igor Strawinsky è stata una passione precoce e duratura, in strong point anticipo rispetto a una critica che, according to motivi ideologici, ha lungamente avversato il grande compositore nonostante il suo successo. Una consonanza che ha dato vita a un’opera formidabile, precisa e personale: una catena di saggi distanti nel pace e diversi in line with angolo visuale, ma uniti nel delineare il ritratto del musicista russo. Un discorso ininterrotto, le cui fila si riannodano con naturalezza nella raccolta presentata.

Se si volesse riassumere il Novecento italiano in una sola immagine, nessuna forse sarebbe più adatta del corpo della Magnani disteso sull’asfalto nella celebre scena di Roma città aperta. Ma non bisogna dimenticare che l’attrice-simbolo del neorealismo è stata anche una diva del teatro di rivista, una delle poche attrici comiche di valore, e che los angeles sua vita non si esaurisce nel teatro e nel cinema. I suoi umori, il suo pianto, le sue risate, i suoi animali, i suoi uomini quasi sempre sbagliati, i suoi amori quasi sempre infelici, sono un pezzo di ventesimo secolo proprio come i suoi film.
Questo libro cerca di raccontare los angeles vita di Anna Magnani così com’è stata, con le sue luci e le sue ombre, le sue gioie e i suoi dolori, le sue certezze e i suoi misteri. Anche se vi appaiono molti movie, non è un libro di cinema. Anche se inizia e finisce con los angeles morte, racconta los angeles vita. E anche se può sembrare un romanzo, si basa soltanto su fatti realmente accaduti. Ma qualche volta l. a. vita è più divertente di una rivista di Totò, più appassionante di un movie da Oscar, più drammatica di un capolavoro neorealista.
