ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
Nell'estate del 1643 un giovane piemontese naufraga, nei mari del sud, su di una nave deserta. Di fronte a lui un'Isola che non può raggiungere. Intorno a lui un ambiente apparentemente accogliente. Solo, su un mare sconosciuto, Roberto de la Grive vede per la prima volta in vita sua cieli, acque, uccelli, piante, pesci e coralli che non sa come nominare. Scrive lettere d'amore, attraverso le quali si indovina la sua storia: una lenta e traumatica iniziazione al mondo secentesco della nuova scienza, della ragion di stato, di un cosmo in cui la terra non è più al centro dell'universo. Roberto vive la sua vicenda tutta giocata sulla memoria e sull'attesa di approdare a un'Isola che non è lontana solo nello spazio, ma anche nel tempo.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
"The Island Of The Day Before": Roberto della Griva, a 17th-century Italian nobleman, is the sole survivor of a shipwreck during a fierce storm. He finds himself washed up on an abandoned ship in a harbour through which, he convinces himself, runs the International Date Line (roughly 180° longitude). Although he can see land, his inability to swim leaves him marooned and he begins to reminisce about his life and his love. He becomes obsessed about his allegedly evil twin brother, who is split from his own persona through a process reminiscent of the doppelganger effect, and thus accusing him of all the bad things that happened in his life. The brother takes blame mainly for his bad choices and is present to sweeten the disappointments of life. Through this reminiscence he becomes convinced that all his troubles will end, if only he can reach the land.
