«Pochi sanno quante donne ci sono in me.» (Few people know how many women there are in me)
The words «Still» and «Leben» if united in a single word in German means «still life». By separating the two words, multiple meanings can be obtained: still life, to live in silence; quietness. Different meanings open up different possibilities that in some way reveal a fragile boundary between stillness, death and life. The portrait Parini portrays is in continouous movement of a woman faded by time, of a figure without boundaries that changes its forms and which is told through the irony and melancholy of a solitude that, sometimes or often, also keeps us company.
