Se una notte d’inverno un viaggiatore
The work is an alternative and visual edition of “If a winter night a traveler” by Italo Calvino. The layout is based on the key concepts of the novel, that of closure and calculation. All chapters have been reshuffled, according to the result of a game of checkers. The winner dictates the order. The novel allows a new and infinite readings, a remixing of the themes of this meta-novel, just as desired by Calvino himself. The index is writable an infinite number of times, through a new game of checkers. The book hides mysteries, contains errors, just like the one I happened to buy by chance. The work is in collaboration with Alessandro Lanfrancotti and is a tribute to the OuLiPo group and its creative approach.
