Sample text

In quella pianura vuota e immobile, infatti, l'unica cosa in movimento è un cavallo che avanza lento, a testa china, tirando un carro, una "barrozza": "Cor barrozzaro giù morto ammazzato". [p. 53] Del resto, come scrive Victor Hugo, "la campagna romana dà una certa idea, la periferia parigina ne dà un'altra; vedere soltanto campi, case o alberi in ciò che un orizzonte ci mette sotto gli occhi, vuol dire fermarsi alla superficie". La Butte di Montmartre conservò il suo carattere agreste fino alla prima guerra mondiale.
