Ruches, by Gianpaolo Serra

@Biblioteca Civica - Multimediale Simpliciana

Wed, December 1
Ruches, "crosses" in Sardinian, is the more or less real description of various characters met in more than 40 years of work in Sardinian healthcare; people who, in various ways, influenced the professionalism and personality of the author: workmates, nurses and doctors, auxiliary staff, priests and nuns, primary and, last but not least, patients met in various realities of the island in the 1980s of the last century.
Trastalai, the place of reference for almost all the stories, is not invented, except in the name, just as the profiles drawn originate from people who really existed.
In particular, the portraits of a former partisan, of service managers, of patients met in a hospice, of psychiatric patients, of a nun who hides a red primrose of Sardinian banditry emerge. Memories never dormant.
The descriptive slant is halfway between the dramatic and the ironic with numerous references to the Sardinian language of Nuoro.
