By Matilde Hochkofler

Anna Magnani si è sempre sentita abbandonata sin da quando bambina viveva a Roma con l. a. nonna “tra una lacrima di troppo e una carezza in meno”, quella carezza che avrebbe voluto ricevere dalla mamma lontana. Proprio dal desiderio di quell’amore negato nasce l. a. sua vocazione artistica che l. a. spinge a cercarlo nell’applauso del pubblico. Dalle tavole del palcoscenico dove si rivela interprete di dolente drammaticità all’affermazione comica nelle riviste accanto a Totò, dalle particine nei movie degli esordi al grande riconoscimento internazionale con Roma città aperta, fino a los angeles rosa tatuata che, prima attrice italiana, le fa conquistare l’Oscar. Nei suoi ricordi, in quelli del figlio Luca, nelle lettere degli amici e dei compagni di lavoro rivivono i retroscena drammatici e irresistibili del cinema tra Cinecittà e Hollywood sullo sfondo della società italiana e dei suoi cambiamenti.

Il volto irregolare segnato dalle esperienze della vita, i grandi occhi luminosi, i capelli scarmigliati, l. a. voce roca, l. a. risata improvvisa, Anna vive il profondo bisogno di libertà che los angeles porta a cercare l’indipendenza. Le sue appassionate storie d’amore, le tempestose litigate, le polemiche e le provocazioni ne fanno l’interprete-personaggio che sullo schermo si alimenta della propria fragilità, delle insicurezze e delle contraddizioni di un carattere uniqueness, sempre sul punto di esplodere. l. a. donna e l’attrice non sanno separarsi l’una dall’altra nelle determine femminili a cui dà vita con tutta se stessa, con los angeles partecipazione totale di chi non si allontana mai dalla propria autobiografia. Nei personaggi indimenticabili dei suoi movie – los angeles chief di L’onorevole Angelina, l’amante di Una voce umana, l. a. mamma di Bellissima, l. a. darkish woman di Nella città l’inferno, l. a. comparsa di Risate di gioia, los angeles prostituta di Mamma Roma – Anna ci viene incontro con le braccia aperte in una richiesta di aiuto, di complicità, d’amore.

The concept of generic place can be compared with the concept of what I term ‘geographical place’. A geographical place is a particular place identified by a name and a unique location, such as Long Island or Philadelphia, that is similarly associated with a particular set of characteristics or meanings.
