Summary
  • Leo Piccioni ha appena superato l'esame di maturità. Ha il corpo sbilenco e fuor di squadra dell'ultima adolescenza, ma ha anche un temperamento eccitabile e nervoso. La sua famiglia medio borghese è soddisfatta e protettiva. Il padre si perde nei suoi studi e nei suoi esperimenti di biologia, la madre si compiace della merlettata rispettabilità delle convenzioni. Per fortuna c'è la zia Ester. Matura signorina con molta pratica del mondo, cova nella sua stanza i segreti incipriati di una femminilità a suo modo libera e ribelle. Antimussoliniana, lettrice di Freud in originale, cinefila, si lascia corteggiare da uomini sposati e non. E ha grandi idee in testa. Idee che arrivano quando scopre che il nipote ha, non si sa come, il potere di far scomparire cose. E persone. Durante la trasferta del padre in campagna per il periodico approvvigionamento di rane-cavie, nel casolare dove ha provato i primi spasimi d'amore, Leo ha sorpreso l'amor suo, la bella Argentina, e l'amico suo, Adriano, pomiciare forte. Ha guardato Adriano con intensità e collera e Adriano è sparito. Leo ha poi riprovato con portacenere e soprammobili e si è confidato con zia Ester. E zia Ester l'ha trasformato in mago: malgrado l'opposizione famigliare, gli ha costruito una carriera nei teatri d'avanspettacolo. Mentre sorpresa e sconcerto superano le pareti della casa Piccioni restano pur tuttavia inquietanti interrogativi...
  • Leo Piccioni has just passed the baccalaureate exam. He has a lopsided and out-of-school body of his last adolescence, but he also has an excitable and nervous temperament. His middle-class family is satisfied and protective. The father is lost in his studies and his experiments in biology, the mother is pleased with the lenient respectability of the conventions. Fortunately, there is Aunt Ester. Mature lady with much practice in the world, brooding in her room the powdered secrets of a femininity in her free and rebellious way. Antimussoliniana, Freud's reader in the original, cinephile, can be courted by married and non-married men. And he has great ideas in mind. Ideas that come when he discovers that the nephew has, not sure how, the power to make things disappear. And people. During his father's trip to the countryside for the periodic procurement of frogs-guinea pigs, in the cottage where he felt the first spasms of love, Leo surprised his love, the beautiful Argentine, and his friend, Adriano, make strong . He looked at Adriano with intensity and anger and Adriano disappeared. Leo then tried again with ashtrays and knick-knacks and confided in aunt Ester. And Aunt Ester turned him into a magician: despite the family opposition, he built a career in the theaters of vaudeville. While surprise and disconcertment surpass the walls of the Piccioni house still remain disturbing questions ... to make strong. He looked at Adriano with intensity and anger and Adriano disappeared.
