Here are so many small traces of the woman writer Goliarda Sapienza. There are pieces of her work. (To support herself, Goliarda is also an acting teacher). There are pieces of her solitude, her intimate conversations, and her fun with her longtime friends and her longlost friends. There are so many moments that give us the chance to retrace and reimagine the profile of a disquieting artist a writer on the edge of society and a "foreign" intellectual.
