The report proposes a reflection on writing in Levi, now understood as a "clear" practice of thought now, instead, as an expression of the irrational half of oneself, continually threatened by the abyss and by silence. Through a sampling of excerpts from poems, essays, interviews, novels, the complex relationship of the writer with the function of the word, liberating act, witnessing duty but also as a "dark" experience is shed light. Among the texts examined, those related to Paul Celan and his 'dark talk' allowed us to appreciate the ambiguous depth of the writing in Primo Levi.
