IUZZA tells the story of an overnight sea crossing in search of Goliarda Sapienza. “Iuzza” is the affectionate childhood nickname given to the writer in Sicily, where she came into the world in 1924. The lopsided symmetry between her biography and her work is full of invisible presences: the vigor of her literary adventure resembles a treasure recovered from a wreck.

Starting from Sapienza’s novels, poems, short stories, letters and personal documents, IUZZA unfolds as an intimate journey triggered by antagonistic forces, subverting the nature of forms and transforming words into images. The sequence of images consists of seven sections that operate through temporal shifts, textual references, and concatenated events. Each part arises from an indirect dialogue with its own absence, like a kind of telepathic exchange through empty space that aims to amplify the perception of emotional connections.
