Mario Pupella: the funeral home, the tears and the greeting

What a great show you put on, Mario. You are at the center and you play the part of the deceased beautifully. It looks real. In fact, everyone is crying, while your lips are carved in the shadow of the last smile. Nothing is missing, every detail is taken care of in detail. The pale hands holding a rosary. The dark suit. And you who manage not to move. You stay like this, still and absent, in your presence. Those who have chewed something of wings and curtains know that absolute immobility denotes a supreme talent. Like the immense Eduardo who plays the deceased in Naples Millionaire. And the sergeant who was there to arrest him, admired for his courage and skill, sets him free.
