Goffredo Fofi, a preeminent figure on the Italian cultural scenario, dialogues with one of the most outstanding songwriters in Europe, Vinicio Capossela to discuss Peste e cronache del post medioevo corrente. Goffredo Fofi, essayist, theater and film critic, disenchanted political observer, is one of the most active and combative personalities of Italian culture. His commitment, focus on the relationship between social reality and its representation in the arts, has led him, often, to identify "trends" and authors "outside" the official culture. A dialogue with him, Vinicio Capossela, a modern storyteller, which has absorbed the sounds and culture of every corner of the world. An encounter between two men who still use words in order to say something, to dip down below the surface of words themselves, to question whether or not being human beings and human in this time of a post-Middle Ages trend is still an act of resistance, or perhaps
intellectual witticism. They meet up in the South, on the outskirts, places they belong to biographically and by choice, and they keep on looking, without ever lowering their gaze, and lock eyes with the last ones remaining, the poor bastards, the resilient ones.
