  • Thinking about enclosed spaces after 2020

    • Authors: Francesco Fiorentino, Marina Guglielmi
      Abstract: The 2020 restrictions of freedom due to Covid-19 pandemic non-pharmaceutical interventions, such as stay-at-home orders – colloquially known as lockdowns – were significant, prolonged practices of estrangement which involved our perception of space. The situation we experienced urged us to question our understanding and use of space in new ways, such as: the categories, or metaphors we use to represent them, the distinctions we adopt to characterize places and spaces, among others.
      The articles presented in this issue take up this challenge, proposing a reflection on different types of confined spaces, which span across different discourses and fields (literature, sociology, geography, architecture, etc.). The papers are inspired and stimulated – implicitly or not – by the spatial revolution, we all faced during the “lockdowns” of 2020.

  • The Spaces of the Feminine in Family Sagas

    • Authors: Claudia Cao
      Pages: 1 - 26
      Abstract: This contribution illustrates the process of reconfiguration of female roles within domestic spaces and the consequent questioning of the traditional family institution that took place between the 1880s and the 1930s. To this end, it examines the gradual emancipation of female characters in three family sagas set in that period – John Galsworthy’s The Forsyte Saga (1906-1921), Rebecca West’s Aubrey trilogy (1956-1985), and the TV series Downton Abbey (2010-2015) – and it respectively identifies three chronotopes: the Robin Hill country house, the music room, the car. These spaces symbolise the overcoming of physical and metaphorical barriers and express the protagonists’ liberation from the limited space of the house as they gain access to the public sphere.

  • On the Island of Philoctetes. Leopardi and the romantic topos of
           imprisonment

    • Authors: Valerio Camarotto
      Pages: 27 - 47
      Abstract: The theme of imprisonment is deeply rooted in the Romantic tradition and has a peculiar declination in Leopardi. Starting from a note of the Zibaldone on the confinement of Philoctetes on the island of Lemnos (Zib. 4282), this contribution aims to show how Leopardi, inclined to represent himself as a prisoner and/or anchorite, and while investigating on the anthropological status of modernity, makes use of some topical polarities ([such as] immobility/action, darkness/light, interior/exterior) that are significantly recurrent in contemporary Italian and European literature from Manzoni to Byron, from Stendhal to Hugo. Nourished as much by a fruitful re-elaboration of Platonic-Christian coordinates (think of prison-life in the Dialogo di Plotino e Porfirio), as by the vigilant observation of current times – see, for example, the annotation on penitentiaries in the United States in Zib. 4045 –, the motif of imprisonment revolves prevalently around two distinct but related nuclei. On the one hand, the ‘fall’ of the human race and the annihilating effects of civilisation; on the other, the possible comfort that, paradoxically, isolation and restriction can offer to a corrupted and altered modern human being.

  • Italian Women Writers: from Imprisoned to Released Bodies

    • Authors: Laura Fortini
      Pages: 49 - 66
      Abstract: Many Italian women writers have written from cells, prisons and insane asylums. The mystic Maddalena de’ Pazzi, Goliarda Sapienza’s L’università di Rebibbia, Luce d’Eramo’s Deviazione, Fabrizia Ramondino’s Passaggio a Trieste, describe imprisoned bodies that reach freedom thanks to other women. In this context Gramsci’s Lettere dal carcere is an important model.

  • From the American Suburb to Echo Chambers and Filter Bubbles. How Urban
           Evolution Has Shaped the Platform Society

    • Authors: Emiliano Ilardi
      Pages: 67 - 88
      Abstract: The concepts of filter bubble and echo chamber are two of the most disturbing drifts on the future of digital societies that communication research has offered in the last ten years. They are two online closed spaces: the first is the result of the filtering logics introduced by the affordances of the platforms that govern communication exchanges on the web and is regulated mainly by algorithms; the second derives from the desire to reduce cognitive dissonance through “self-enclosure” in digital environments where only the same opinions and points of view are repeated.
      By comparing the urban sociology of the 1980s and 1990s, and the most recent theories produced in the field of Internet studies, this article aims to demonstrate that the platform society in which we live today – and its most dystopian drifts – had already been anticipated and prepared by the urban reconfiguration that took place, especially in the United States starting from the 1950s, with the housing form of Suburbia. The American suburb was born as a desire of a slice of the population to shut themselves up in homogeneous and controlled spaces (echo chambers) but it is also the result of political, urban, economic, and technological algorithms aimed at profiling and classifying the urban population (filter bubbles), thus defusing the conflictual potential of the anonymous metropolitan crowd.

  • Paris as a Site of Confinement in August Strindberg’s
           Inferno

    • Authors: Angela Iuliano
      Pages: 89 - 112
      Abstract: August Strindberg’s Inferno, pivotal work in the author’s production, narrates the mental and existential crisis of its protagonist, A. S., supposedly the author’s alter ego. Most of the narrative is set in Paris, in the streets and cafés of the city, in hotel rooms, a hospital dormitory, and the laboratories of the Sorbonne. In the experience of the protagonist, these spaces are perceived as oppressive and ultimately punitive, authentic places of confinement. In this contribution, I contend that Paris in its entirety (not only the abovementioned spaces) turns out to be a fragmented and multiform reality that, at the same time, is experienced as chaotic and suffocating. In his depiction of Paris at the end of the 19th century, Strindberg, drawing on Baudelaire’s poems, observes and describes the city as a nightmarish place. Strindberg’s Paris, therefore, functions as a surreal scenario for the individual crisis of the protagonist. Moreover, the city turns out to be a mythical space, charged with a strong symbolic significance. Finally, as the prototype of the modern metropolis, it is the ideal target of Strindberg’s polemic against any optimistic idea of progress.

  • Post-Apocalypse Now. Cinema and Zombie Series as a Pre-mediation of
           Contagion: Spaces, Media and Lockdowns

    • Authors: Mirko Lino
      Pages: 114 - 138
      Abstract: The article aims to analyse the relationship between post-apocalyptic imagery of cinema and TV series and the reality of the Coronavirus pandemic focussing on the zombie as an allegory of the biological virus. Broadening this allegoric perspective, zombie fiction will be used as an epistemological model to explain unpredicted manifestations of catastrophic large-scale phenomena in a way that resembles Richard Grusin’s notion of “pre-mediation” (2010; 2017). In detail, the analysis will focus on the viral media representations of open and closed spaces during the 2020 lockdown, aiming at illustrating the capacity of cinema and TV series to offer the tools to interpret the symbolic interaction between humans and the virus.

  • The Function of the Interstices between Public and Private Spaces

    • Authors: Giampaolo Nuvolati
      Pages: 155 - 170
      Abstract: In this essay, interstices will undergo a theoretical analysis as space-time elements between two distinct worlds. The first world is that of work declined on various types of activities. It can be a factory for workers, an office for white-collars, a university for students, but it also contemplates the places of cure and detention: hospitals, prisons, and all the Foucaultian heterotopias that host various types of people with different levels of control. The second world corresponds to the house we live in: it is the world of private affections, of intimacy. Conversely, examples of interstices are public spaces and establishments such as cinemas, theatres, museums, bars, shops, supermarkets, hairdressers, newsstands, streets and squares, sidewalks, urban parks, railway and underground stations, empty spaces. The interstices can correspond to places of transit or consumption, they can constitute confidential places, but also places of improvisation linked to adventures, or they can represent privileged contexts of resistance to the globalization processes. Today as yesterday, it is above all the flâneur who is allowed to explore them and reflect on interstices, interpreting and narrating them. The interstice, however, is not just a rediscovery of the walking city. The interstice is also an excavation in the most disparate private places, even those of detention, where we can hide our secrets. In the end, interstices are a search for ourselves, therefore becoming a fundamental perspective for confirming or rebuilding our identity.

  • «Un presentimento di “quasi libertà”». Rebibbia According to
           Goliarda Sapienza

    • Authors: Maria Rizzarelli
      Pages: 171 - 190
      Abstract: The work of Goliarda Sapienza takes stage within the theoretical categories of seclusion and confinement. It all starts from her narrating voice which flows within enclosed spaces which – owing to the paradoxical dynamics of liberation unfolding in her texts – turn out also to be the spaces where freedom is found. It is common knowledge that two of her works derived from her first-hand experience of incarceration: L’università di Rebibbia (1983) and Le certezze del dubbio (1987). This paper aims to visualize the cartography of emotions embedded in the jail narratives of Sapienza. It follows the idea proposed by Giuliana Bruno in Atlante delle emozioni to read travel stories as emotional journeys which can be mapped, and to look at the authors in their interaction with spaces and their architectural configuration, in a web of exchanges between «motion» and «emotion», «sight» and «site». In my opinion, they represent open and fluid theoretical paradigms which can be very effective lenses through which reading these texts.

  • The Room of the Other. From Spaces of Confinement to Spaces of Asylum
           Freeing

    • Authors: Giuseppina Scavuzzo
      Pages: 191 - 208
      Abstract: The article investigates the enclosed space of asylum confinement and its transformations up to the opening advocated by the movements of contestation of institutionalized psychiatry. The history of former psychiatric hospital in Gorizia, where Franco Basaglia started the process of negation of the psychiatric institution, also through action on space, can help us read the stages of this transformation. An acknowledgment of the role of architecture differentiates him from Foucault (who however admires Basaglia’s experiments in Gorizia). The reading is carried on by analysing photographic documents, documentaries filmed in the park, and archive materials (texts and architectural drawings).
      Such materials show how Basaglia fostered a new idea of architecture devised to support forms of resistance against the normalization imposed by the institution – but also by contemporary society. Brand new places enabling their residents/dwellers to find their own meaning in the place where they live.

  • Claustrophobic Visions of the Asylum: The Photobooks of the Italian
           Psychiatric Reform

    • Authors: Alvise Sforza Sforza Tarabochia
      Pages: 209 - 227
      Abstract: In this article, I compare the strategies of visual representation employed in the two 1969 photobooks Gli esclusi (D’Alessandro-Piro) and Morire di classe (Berengo Gardin et al.). These photobooks have been the photographic protagonists of the reform of psychiatric health care that, fed by the upheavals of the late 1960s, brought about the closure of psychiatric asylums in 1978 thanks to the famous Law 180. I will specifically focus on the representation of claustrophobic spaces in their relationship with the bodies of inmates compared to the traditional iconography of madness. This article aims to show that these photobooks (while employing radically different strategies of representation) aim at providing a visual translation of the pivotal philosophical coordinates that guided the reform of psychiatric health care.

  • The Chambers of Geography. Hypotheses on Places Where Other Places are

    • Authors: Marcello Tanca

      Abstract: The present study dovetails with topics previously discussed in my recent book Geografia e fiction (Tanca, 2020), with a particular focus on the link between geography and simulation. More specifically, I will reflect on places where simulations of the actual world take place. The hypothesis stems from the fascination exerted by simulating machines like magic lanterns, Wunderkammern, peepshows, panoramas, and dioramas, perspective boxes, virtual reality, etc. These ‘geographic chambers’ are all constructed situations producing an illusionistic mise en scène: the space compression occurring inside them enables us to immerse ourselves in places that are geographically very distant from us.

  • Seclusion and Intersubjectivity in 19th Century Leper Colonies

    • Authors: Fabio Vasarri
      Pages: 243 - 261
      Abstract: A novella inspired by a true story, Xavier de Maistre’s Le lépreux de la cité d’Aoste (1811) had a considerable influence throughout the 19th century, from Romanticism to Aestheticism. In their tales, Flaubert, Villiers, and Schwob deal with the biblical motif of leprosy, which affects excluded and isolated characters in closed spaces, be they social outcasts or fallen aristocrats. Their towers, castles, or huts are modern versions of the old leprosaria. I propose here a socio-cultural reading of this corpus, within the framework of the counter-revolutionary and anti-modern currents of 19th century France. The seclusion of the contagious patient and the difficulties of intersubjective communication refer to the impossibility for anti-bourgeois authors of finding their place in a new cultural and economic system.

  • A Room of Their Own. Goliarda Sapienza’s Il filo di mezzogiorno From the
           Page to the Stage

    • Authors: Maria Rizzarelli
      Pages: 262 - 270
      Abstract: The theatre rendition of Il filo di mezzogiorno by Goliarda Sapienza – edited by Ippolita di Majo – is a perfect example of the adaptation of a complex, stratified, and extremely fascinating text by an author/actress whose writing possesses a strong, intrinsically performative vocation. This conversation with the dramaturg follows the steps of her embracing of Goliarda Sapienza’s novel and allows us to put into focus the approaches she took in her intense, passionate work of conversion into a theatre pièce, as well as in creating the characters and the stage background.

This conversation with the actor and director put in the focus some important aspects of the process of converting Kafka's story into a theatrical performance.
