Chapter Summary

La casa a Nord-Est (1991) by Sergio Maldini is an account of the attempts of a middle-aged man from Rome to recover old values and to find the meaning of life and death by buying a house in the southern plains of the region Friuli where he spent his youth. In my article I focus mainly on the presentation of the Friulian community and the dimensions of time and space. The community is presented as a timeless microcosm and has strong ties with its past, when the region was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Time is the continuous thread in the quest of the character. Both time and space play an important part in the contrast between countryside and city.
