PAOLINA ERA LA MADRE DI GIULIA

The protagonist is my mother, an unlettered writer, her life and writing.
The interview takes place in her house, and outdoor in the park “Monte Claro” where she goes every day to meet people, offering them her poems.
She began to write when a newborn daughter died. She began to talk with her in a secret notebook. My sister and I began to read it secretly.
When I became adult, suggested her to write an autobiography; the short film talks about our literary complicity and also tells the special relationship between my mother Bruna (Gulia) and her mother Vincenza (Paolina).
