Espulsi dalla propria vita, vagano alla ricerca di un angolo di riposo e probabilmente di qualche orecchio che ascolti i loro segreti. Il giardino, che spesso è un rifugio per malinconiche/malinconici e perdigiorno, li attrae promettendo loro la possibilità di incontrare compagni/compagne tolleranti. Accogliamoli e ascoltiamo le loro storie di vita ultraterrena.
Is the garden a domesticated place or not entirely? it is guarded, protected by the walls, it is designed and managed by the gardener, supervised by the owner. Yet, there is something mysteriously uncontrollable, that crawls in its shadowy nooks, rustles in the thiskets amidst the quietest night. Birds, insects and winds don’t care about the fences and private property policies, dwell there without asking permission, creating their baffling habitats or sojourns, ignorant of established order. So do ghosts. Expelled from their own lives, they are wandering in search of a restful corner and probably some ears that would listen to their secrets. Garden, which is often a refuge for melancholics and loiterers, attracts them promising a chance to meet tolerant companions. Let us welcome them and listen to their stories of afterlife.
