Publisher's Description
SP67: 13 kilometers of o provincial road from Apparizione, a neighbourhood on the borderline of Genoa, to Calcinara, four houses in the inland. Around here, 'Dark Nord Wind' is the name given to the North Wind when it carries rain and storms. The author spent three years to cover these 13 kilometers. More or less, it is the right amount of time if someone wants to catch the mysteries of a Place. His car parked, he descended deep into the woods, uninvited.

Expecting to retrace someone else’s steps, studying the plants, amidst the fog, in the night. Three years of following his subjects, climbing, meeting the local inhabitants. Eating fast before the storm arrives. These are memoirs of an explorer who desires to extract the sublime where others wouldn’t think to look for it: in a stretch of road, in an encounter with a wild pig, in a frozen night.

Two short stories by Paolo Caredda form the prologue and the epilogue. A map of the territory provides a geographical reference to those who are interested, with their imagination, in reconstructing the author’s journey. And for those who live in Genoa, this visual essay becomes an inspiration for discovering all the hidden places portrayed in these photographs.
