Sicily, the world, a house, a library. In January 2022, Costanza Quatriglio returns to the house where she grew up, long closed, and opens its doors to archivists and librarians to donate to the Sicilian Region the universe of knowledge belonged to her journalist father. It is the library and archives of Giuseppe Quatriglio, historical signature of the ‘Giornale di Sicilia’ and other major newspapers, writer, essayist and friend of men of culture of the 20th century. Thus begins a sentimental journey through photographs, 8mm reels, sound recordings made by his father from the 1940s onward in Europe and around the world, and through footage shot by the director between 2010 and 2011 with him almost in his 90s.

Personal and collective memory mingle in a dense dialogue between presence and absence. With their history and culture, Palermo and Sicily are the vantage point of the world from where everything starts and returns.
