‘A composer once dreamt that he was giving a class and was trying to make a point clear to his pupils. When he had done, he turned to one of the boys and asked him if he had followed. The boy shouted back like a lunatic: “Ohja! [Oh yes!]” He began to reprove the boy angrily for shouting, but the whole class broke out into cries first of “Orjal”, then of “Eurjo!” and finally of “Feuerjo!” 1 At this point he was woken up by actual cries of “Feuerjo!” in the street.’

Sigmund Freud, The Interpretation of Dreams

Dedicated to Fernando Nannetti, who engraved on the walls of the Volterra asylum a sci-fi diary of words and images for 500 square meters with the buckle of his belt. The writing is scarcely legible because the graphic signs are angular, resembling the Etruscan ones. But above all, as in boustrophedical writing, the words do not follow a unique direction, but when arrived at the margins of the available space they invert their direction by also rotating the letters. After the closure of the asylums in Italy, the graffiti quickly deteriorated, and just about 50 meters remain. Of these, 8 were detached and placed in the Volterra Museum of psychiatric history. The others, who remained in the abandoned asylum, have been coloured year after year with spray paints (the last writing: “I made the christmas crib, only the weed is left”).

Per approfondire la ricerca artistica di Luisa Valeria Carpignano, si rimanda alla sua dissertazione Les murs murmurent: Il gesto oltre la scrittura.
