👃 Uno, nessuno e centomila

by Pirandello Luigi

Vitangelo Moscarda, è un individuo ordinario, che ha ereditato dal padre una fortuna e vive senza troppo interrogarsi sulla sua condizione. Un giorno, guardandosi allo specchio, scopre che la gente, compresa sua moglie e i suoi amici più intimi, hanno di lui un’immagine completamente diversa da quella che lui aveva associato a se stesso fino a quel momento. Anzi, si rende conto che gli altri non hanno una sola immagine di lui, ma una serie infinita di immagini sempre cangianti. Da questa scoperta agghiacciante Moscarda decide di risalire alla sua vera identità, di scoprire ossessivamente chi è davvero, al di là di come lo rappresentano gli altri.

🎭 The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

by Stevenson R. L.

One pitch-black London morning, a ghoulish little man tramples a young girl and continues heedlessly on his way. Caught by a passerby and returned to the scene of the crime, the man is forced to pay £100 in restitution. He produces ten pounds in gold and a check for the remainder. Curiously, the check bears the signature of the well-regarded Dr. Henry Jekyll. Even stranger, Dr. Jekyll’s will names this same awful and mysterious little man, Mr. Hyde, as the sole beneficiary. Troubled by the coincidence, Dr. Jekyll’s attorney visits his client. What he uncovers is a tale so strange and terrifying it has seeped into the very fabric of our consciousness.
