La mitopoiesi di Colapesce: metafora medievale del siciliano mezzo-uomo e mezzo-pesce

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


[automatically translated] Kinesis and akinesia, movement and deprivation of the same, these actions that gives it form the medieval tale of Colapesce. And Colapesce is the king a half-man, half-fish that governs the subtle and labile limen between land and water, perpetually poised, as it is down the condition of all the Sicilians, so rooted to the land, and so prone to the greatness of the sea . But the land to which they are rooted is surrounded by water, is a land that forces him to cross the water point for exploring other land new and different. In an excursus ranging from the origins of the myth - from birth in Puglia, the most well-known narrative that makes Pitre - until the analysis system of the story-myth-story, we come to the true narrative and vision steeped in the Mediterranean spirit that runs through and covers the entire Enarratio.
