It was as though the brain had stopped working. Gestures and movements had moved lower, into the heart and it took control leading to the climax of that “night of the suns.”
Vesna Raffaelli hates her name. That’s why she decided to call herself Fiorella. On the other hand, when you get to that point in your life when you begin to understand the name you bear, you’ve already been carrying it around for some time, put there by someone else. That’s why we make these choices, its just a question of having a little courage. There is an unsettling dichotomy in her life that you very slowly begin to perceive, little by little: it is an ordinary life and at the same time an extraordinary life. Impossible?

The sensation begins spontaneously, but you only start to understand when you stop for a moment, stop reading, make that tiny almost imperceptible gesture of pushing the book away a few millimeters and raising your gaze … that is the moment that you reflect on what you have just understood. “Perhaps my life also works a bit like that?” Exactly. Nonetheless, as soon as you have the thought, you rush fiercely back to the pages, devouring them with more passion than before. Why? Because Vesna / Fiorella does something wonderful that makes everything different: she thinks. She does it as she writes her diary, she does it when she observes the people around her, when she finds out that she is pregnant, when she makes important decisions, and when she finds herself experiencing emotions which, like it or not, you have to admit you want to experience too. When Vesna makes love, amongst other things … its hard not to want to be her. Or him, I mean…
