Italo Calvino (1923 – 1985) è stato uno scrittore e partigiano italiano.

Intellettuale di grande impegno politico, civile e culturale, è stato uno dei narratori italiani più importanti del secondo Novecento. Ha seguito molte delle principali tendenze letterarie a lui coeve, dal Neorealismo al Postmoderno, ma tenendo sempre una certa distanza da esse e svolgendo un percorso di ricerca personale e coerente. Di qui l'impressione contraddittoria che offrono la sua opera e la sua personalità: da un lato una grande varietà di atteggiamenti che riflette il vario succedersi delle poetiche e degli indirizzi culturali nel quarantennio fra il 1945 e il 1985; dall'altro, invece, una sostanziale unità determinata da un atteggiamento ispirato a un razionalismo più metodologico che ideologico, dal gusto dell'ironia, dall'interesse per le scienze e per i tentativi di spiegazione del mondo, nonché, sul piano stilistico, da una scrittura sempre cristallina e a volte, è stato sostenuto, classica.[1]

I numerosi campi d'interesse toccati dal suo percorso letterario sono meditati e raccontati attraverso capolavori quali la trilogia de I nostri antenati, Marcovaldo, Le cosmicomiche, Se una notte d'inverno un viaggiatore, uniti dal filo conduttore della riflessione sulla storia e la società contemporanea.

HAPPY WINTER (Giovanni Totaro)

Am Strand das Glück suchen
Sommer für Sommer werden am Mondello-Strand von Palermo auf Sizilien über tausend kleine und farbenfroh bemalte Holzstrandhäuschen aufgebaut. Hier in der Sonne geniessen unzählige Sizilianer und Sizilianerinnen ihre Ferien und entfliehen dem Schatten, den die wirtschaftliche und politische Krise über das Land geworfen hat. Unter ihnen ein angehender Lokalpolitiker auf Stimmenfang, ein umtriebiger Getränkeverkäufer oder ein Taucher, der mit verlorenen Schmuckstücken handelt. Niemand will sich die unbeschwerte Stimmung am Strand entgehen lassen. Alle suchen angesichts des unausweichlich nahenden Winters ihr Glück. Giovanni Totaros verspielter Kinoerstling zeichnet anhand vieler kleiner und komischer Geschichten einen facettenreichen Mikrokosmos des italienischen Lebens.

Impressionistischer Blick auf die italienische Gesellschaft
Der Film fängt Fragmente und Miniaturen der vielen Aktivitäten und Vergnügungen ein, während aus winzigen Radiogeräten ferne Echos politischer Debatten und Fussballspiele widerhallen. Einige schlafen nachts in kleinen gemieteten Hütten, um nur ja den warmen Strand nicht verlassen zu müssen. Mit Versprechen, die er nie halten wird, wirbt ein lokaler Politiker zwischen den Hütten um Wählerstimmen. Die einzige Sorge des Barkeepers ist es, so viel Geld wie möglich zu verdienen, um durch den bevorstehenden Winter zu kommen. Ein heller und impressionistischer Blick auf die italienische Gesellschaft, ein Gegenschuss zur schwierigen politischen Lage.
