Friday, March 18 at 6 p.m. the Ubik Librairie in Cesena, in collaboration with the Malatesta Library, will propose Gabardini’s latest book: A common story. Sanpa: I, us, everyone (in the. Harper Collins). For participation in the event, which will be held in the Aula Magna of the Malatestiana in the presence of the author and actor Giacomo Garaffoni, reservations are recommended on 0547 077134.

“Why bother telling Sanpa’s story? Why say it today?”. This is what Carlo Gabardini is asking when he is asked to make a documentary about the recovery community of San Patrignano and its founder, Vincenzo Muccioli. A story that mentions far news, sanctions and demonizations, opinions and prejudices, controversies, episodes, never completely clarified. But is it really just that? Starting to do research Gabardini, like Alice in the Rabbit, will embark on a journey of discovery that is also a journey into memory. The memory of a generation born between the late 60s and early 80s, which in many ways has to do with the delusion of heroin, with the fascination for dissolution, with discomfort when you met as children . a “drug addict,” an acknowledgment that perhaps implies the fear of becoming so, once great. And today, when we are older, what effect does it have on rebuilding the educational path of an entire country marked by television, and fixing a collective memory? The story of San Patrignano really becomes a common story that mixes the public, the story of those years divided between a boundless trust in the present and the fear that something unavoidable would happen, and the current private everyday life of the question: ” “Do we really think drugs are a past problem? And why did we collectively decide to bury this past?”
