ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
"Il mare non bagna Napoli" è - sottolinea Pietro Citati nella prefazione - una straordinaria discesa agli Inferi: nel regno della tenebra e delle ombre, dove appaiono le pallidissime figure dei morti. Di rado un artista moderno ha saputo rendere in modo così intenso la spettralità di tutte le cose, delle colline, del mare, delle case, dei semplici oggetti della vita quotidiana. Anna Maria Ortese attraversa l'Ade posando sulle cose e le figure degli sguardi allucinati e dolcissimi: tremendi a forza di essere dolci; che colgono e uccidono per sempre il brulichio della vita. Nei racconti compresi nella prima parte del libro, questi sguardi penetrano nel cuore dei personaggi: ne rendono la musica e il tempo interiore, come molti anni prima aveva fatto Cechov".

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
"Neapolitan Chronicles" (also known as "
Evening Descends Upon the Hills"): "The sea does not wet Naples" is - underlines Pietro Citati in the preface - an extraordinary descent into the Underworld: into the realm of darkness and shadows, where the very pale figures of the dead appear. Seldom has a modern artist been able to render so intensely the spectrality of all things, hills, sea, houses, simple objects of everyday life. Anna Maria Ortese crosses Hades placing hallucinated and sweet glances on things and figures: terrible by dint of being sweet; that seize and forever kill the swarm of life. In the stories included in the first part of the book, these gazes penetrate into the hearts of the characters: they make their music and their interior time, as Chekhov had done many years before ".
Classic stories and reportage set in Naples in the 1940s and 50s.
