'Les musiciens ont le privilège de capter toute los angeles poésie de l. a. nuit et du jour, de los angeles terre et du ciel, d’en reconstituer l’atmosphère et d'en rythmer l’immense palpitation.'

Indiscipliné, depuis le Conservatoire, et méprisant les succès faciles, Claude Debussy (1862-1918) dut toute sa vie faire face à de sévères reviews. Avec le Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune, Pelléas et Mélisande, los angeles Mer ou encore ses Préludes pour piano, sachant se libérer des traditions romantiques et wagnériennes, il a révolutionné los angeles musique française. Admirateur des impressionnistes, de Verlaine et de Mallarmé, il s’est nourri d'art et de littérature mais aussi des musiques orientale et espagnole. Il a recherché des harmonies et des rythmes nouveaux dans lesquels les notes expriment sensations et pictures. En proie durant toute son life à des difficultés matérielles et à des accès de spleen, il reste un compositeur à half, perfectionniste et intransigeant. Il mourut au son des canons allemands bombardant Paris.

portatile) e si abbandona ai ricordi, in step with libere associazioni, tra fettuccine con i carciofi, mezza di rosso e, in keeping with concludere il pranzo, un caffè che “fa bene ai capezzoli”. Sono occasioni uniche in line with risalire all’indietro nel passato, al lontanissimo 1922, quando le signore in step with bene non potevano lavorare according to il cinematografo e lo zio di Poli tassinaro andava a prendere le donne dalle case di tolleranza consistent with portarle a fare da comparse in un movie sulla Divina Commedia.
O al 1938, anno in cui in Italia arrivarono in due, Biancaneve nella splendida prima edizione, e Hitler che in visita a Firenze sfilò davanti a Paolo balilla con l. a. bandierina in mano. Ma sono anche occasioni in keeping with parlare
di Madame Bovary che inizia col matrimonio e finisce con l’arsenico, di Michelangelo
che sullo sfondo del Tondo Doni mise uomini nudi, di sante che pisciano sul rogo, di papi morti ammazzati, di cene alcoliche a casa Fellini e delle avventure galanti del Mago Zurlì.
Questo libro restituisce in maniera autentica lo spirito di Paolo Poli, artista assoluto, ultimo esempio — come sottolinea Pino Strabioli — del teatro all’antica italiana, quello delle tele dipinte, del cielo di carta e delle
parrucche di lana, dove lui è il capocomico, il Maestro. E, grazie ai suoi ricordi e al suo stile dissacrante e di impeccabile eleganza, è un perdersi eccitante nella cultura e nella Bellezza del nostro Novecento: spettacolo, vita quotidiana, letteratura, arte, poesia e storia, raccontate con l’acume e il piglio di un genio.
