ON THE MOON, MANY TIDES AGO WAS BORN ORLANDO, AND WAS BORN OF A THOUSAND YEARS AND THREE MONTHS AND FORTY-TWO AND FOUR YEARS.

Orlando was born small and he was born old. He was born free of time, for on the moon time is in the valley of lost things. He was born more human than men, but a little more fragile than all of them, because Orlando has no heart in his ribcage. Under his oversized diving suit, under the white undershirt, on the left, he has a fabric pocket where Sunny, a golden fish, swims. The only time Orlando knows is marked by the beating of Sunny's tail on his chest, because Sunny is his heart. When he releases him into the water, Orlando changes gender and nature, begins a journey of metamorphosis: his hair slips out and rolls in, her breasts sprout and retract, sex lengthens or nests into the belly. Orlando is: the questions of all children, is a black fairy tale, the search for lost and never forgotten things, the staging of what is under the skin, it is the story of water, of the motherhood of fathers, of the birth of mothers. To his eyes it teaches how to see in the dark, to the heart how to be free. Orlando, the idea and the book, the man and the woman, was born from the exchange of letters between Virginia Woolf and Vita Sackville-West; what happens when after a century the game repeats itself, but there are three writers? Federica Rosellini gave birth to [i] Carne blu [/ i] and Fiona Sansone and Nadia Terranova became midwives. Together they move as expert astronauts in the most mythical of scenographies: they yearn for enchantment in the realistic setting. They choose the satellite closest to Earth, close enough to be seen with the naked eye, but elusive to the point that it is always half hidden.
The images in the volume are the result of the artistic collaboration between Federica Rosellini, here also in the role of illustrator, and Claudia Borgia, photographer.
