MICHELE

Michele ha una madre e le sue due mani.

Michele ha la faccia burbera e tu pensi “meglio andar via” ma poi lui ti insegue e ti invita ad entrare.

Fabbrica scalette e manufatti in legno da vendere durante i mercatini di Natale.

Era carpentiere e poi ha fatto il guardiano del cimitero, però “poi me ne sono andato perché i morti me li sognavo pure di giorno”.

Michele lavora in un rudere ai piedi del Castello di Limatola. Raccoglie legna nei boschi vicini, seleziona i pezzi e li raggruppa ordinatamente.

Purtroppo non ce la fa più a stringere il cordino perché ha avuto un incidente alle mani, e poi costa 1.30€ a gomitolo, allora usa lo spago ma tanto la gente le scalette se le compra lo stesso.

Un piatto caldo se lo cucina lui, oppure la vicina gli porta qualcosa quando glielo promette e “si ricorda”.

Nel suo giardino c’è vita accumulata a strati, anche oggetti che raccontano una casa e una donna.

“Signor Michele ma una famiglia ce l’avete?

“Tengo a mia madre”

“E una moglie?”“Una moglie? NO! No, no…” scuote la testa abbassando lo sguardo

Michele has a mother and her two hands.

Michele has a gruff face and you think "better go away" but then he chases you and invites you to enter.

He makes ladders and wooden artifacts to sell at Christmas markets.

He was a carpenter and then he was a cemetery guardian, but "then I left because I dreamed of the dead even during the day".

Michele works in a ruin at the foot of the Limatola Castle. He collects wood in the nearby woods, selects the pieces and groups them neatly.

Unfortunately, he can't manage to tighten the lanyard anymore because he had a hand accident, and then it costs € 1.30 per ball, so he uses the twine but many people buy the ladders anyway.

He cooks a hot dish, or the neighbor brings him something when she promises it and "remembers".

In his garden there is life accumulated in layers, even objects that tell a house and a woman.

“Mr. Michele, do you have a family?

"I care about my mother"

“And a wife?” “A wife? NO! No, no… ”he shakes his head, looking down

He manufactures little wooden ladders and other artifacts to be sold during the Christmas markets.

He was a bricklayer and after he was the guardian of the cemetery, "then I left because I began dreaming deads also during the day".

Michele works in a ruined house at the foot of Limatola Castle. He collects lumber in nearby woods, selecting the pieces and neatly grouping them.

Unfortunately, he can no longer wind the rope when he creates the ladders because an accident on his hands left him with no force in the fingers, and further rope costs € 1.30 per clew, so he uses twine, people buy the ladders anyway.

He can cook or the neighbor brings him something when she promises it and she "remembers".

In his garden there is life accumulated in layers, even objects that tell about a home and a woman.

"Mr. Michele, do you have a family of yours?

"I have my mother"

"And a wife?"
"A wife? Don't! No, no ..." he shakes his head looking down.
