Summary

Hace ya muchos años que Orlando se marchó de su aldea natal, perdida en la campiña italiana. Ahora, su carrera de pintor, al igual que el resto de su vida, se encuentra en una especie de letargo, un leve extravío que pretende encauzar volviendo a los paisajes de su niñez: allí descubrirá que la vieja casona rosa de su maestra está en venta y la compra sin saber muy bien por qué. Sin embargo, como se anticipa ya desde el título, la casa no será un elemento pasivo en esta historia: comienzan a suceder algunos fenómenos insólitos que le desvelan rastros ocultos y le harán creer que tal vez haya sido la casa quien en realidad lo ha elegido a él. En este viaje al pasado, en el que nuestro protagonista se sumerge para encontrar el sentido de su presente, el suspense y la melancolía se alían inesperadamente para alumbrar una bella novela intimista salpicada de atardeceres luminosos, huertos y flores. Laura Mancinelli realiza un hermoso ejercicio de introspección cuyo hilo conductor es una de las preguntas que han asediado al hombre desde siempre: ¿por qué hacemos lo que hacemos?, ¿cuál es el sentido de ciertas decisiones?

It has been many years since Orlando left his native village, lost in the Italian countryside. Now, his career as a painter, like the rest of his life, is in a kind of lethargy, a slight loss that he intends to channel back to the landscapes of his childhood: there he will discover that the old pink house of his teacher is in selling and buying without really knowing why. However, as anticipated from the title, the house will not be a passive element in this story: some unusual phenomena begin to happen that reveal hidden traces and will make you believe that perhaps it was the house that actually chose it. to the. In this journey to the past, in which our protagonist plunges to find the meaning of his present, suspense and melancholy unexpectedly come together to illuminate a beautiful intimate novel dotted with luminous sunsets, orchards and flowers. Laura Mancinelli performs a beautiful introspection exercise whose common thread is one of the questions that have besieged mankind forever: why do we do what we do? What is the meaning of certain decisions?
