From a study carried out within the project "Behind the door", Gabriella Cerritelli obtained a research work on "body memory" based on texts from Troubling Love by Elena Ferrante.
"Behind the door" it is the story of a woman who, prompted by a sinister and disturbing attraction, gains access to a dark matter. This awakens the memory of a repressed trauma.
Delia, the protagonist of the novel Troubling Love, investigating the sudden and violent death of his mother recounts a harrowing harsh and violent family history. She relives people and places, finds smells and physical feelings that bring her to his shadow zone by returning an experience denied.
In Corpo/Memoria, the gesture and the word dig into the past and, starting from the darkness, they reveal the possibility of exceeding and openness to a new present.
