Second opera on communication after the first chapter, “Sonno Eliso”, dedicated to the Masculin-Feminin. The theme of “Archtetypal Missives” is the word, the verb through poetry, the story, the memory… its growth through centuries together with the man, from his birth to the contemporary era.
Metaphorically it is the journey of a man: from his birth to the discovery of the other, of the word, of love, of the capacity of creating, until the acknowledgement of evil and its overcoming to give a meaning to life.
The instrumental, orchestral, intimistic tracks are always accompanied by the poetries of Catullus “Carme to Lesbia”, Jalal al-Din Rumi “Die die”, the popular cradle song “Lullaby seven and twenty” (among the most known in italian tradition), and the direct experience of Charlotte Delbo in concentrantion camps with “Dress your skin”.
