Författare: Ivan Lasorsa.
Chi ha letto Bottega Baretti sa quanto il racconto noir sia il genere in cui Ivan Lasorsa dà il meglio di sé; ma chi è veramente il nostro autore? Ivan Lasorsa è il nome collettivo sotto il quale si riunisce un gruppo di scrittori torinesi, che ha deciso di ambientare le proprie storie nel quartiere multietnico e muliculturale di San Salvario (Ivan La sorsa è l’anagramma di San Salvario). Il nuovo lavoro si è inoltre arricchito, in fase di realizzazione, del contributo di poeti, provenienti da varie regioni italiane, che hanno deciso di regalare al lettore una serie di parentesi liriche, che consentano, di tanto in tanto, di abbandonare le atmosfere cupe e torbide del giallo noir, in favore di brevi momenti di poesia. Il tutto in un complesso spartito, in cui la musica delle parola si fonde con il ritmo sincopato degli eventi. Fra i temi affrontati dagli autori: femminicidio, omofobia, immigrazione e razzismo.

Due to the scarcity of dedicated pilgrims’ accommodation along the Via Francigena, pilgrims often camp out rather than staying in hotels or pensions, both options which would turn out expensive when used for weeks on end.
