The ‘Bastimenti Tales’ originate on the schedule of ‘Radio Fujot’. The initial idea is to tell, through the metaphor of fairy tales, the difficult artistic and cultural situation in which the province finds itself, the lack of opportunities and spaces to create and gather.
The triggering event is the transformation of the historic rehearsal room of the Fuh into a hazelnut collection center. Economic profit prevails over every aspect of social life. In this context, the prince’s journey and his mission to restore Fujot take on a cathartic and liberating function. Social criticism is soon accompanied by a narrative that aims to cement and make epic the birth of the Fujot Collective, with inside jokes and inspiration taken from real life and existing interactions and roles among the group members.
Each character is characterized by emphasizing their peculiar aspects, with irony and the pronounced taste for the absurd that is preferred by the authors. There are also references to literature and quotations, from Celtic Sagas to the hero’s journey, revisited in a modern key and with a nod to current events.
