Rome, early nineties. A writer in his thirties, both cynical and naive, finds work in an archive, the Pier Paolo Pasolini Foundation, where he meets a shrewish old woman called Laura Betti. The encounter with the mad heroine of this book, a spiritual heir of the Friulian poet, is an encounter with Pasolini himself. Meanwhile, a hidden story in Petrolio, the unfinished novel by Pasolini, becomes a guide to the disenchantment of our time and the mysteries of life. Something Written tells the story of a farewell to adolescence and an entire era, and explores the eternal secrets of life.
