This brilliant and lively diary of the sculptor Antonio Ranocchia (1915-1989) gives us a cross-section of his life, of his passions, friendships, and of life within the community of Marsciano. The relationship between the artist and his native country was one of mutual love, "l'umiIe terra", which has always been a working tradition of the Marscian "pignattai", is raised to a work of art in the master's sculptures. In the stories, published here for the first time, characters and places so loved by the sculptor come to life, the sweet hills, already a source of inspiration for Renaissance artists, become places of the soul, the tortuous streets of the center, theatrical performances "piazzetta", fishing along the Nestore, before the modern environmental degradation. The Marsciano Books are thus embellished with a volume that outlines the figure of Antonio Ranocchia and the special relationship he had with his land, waiting for the passage of time to fully recognize the high artistic value of his works, characterized by an intense expressionism and having human figures as their subject, in an era in which the nebulous fashions and abstruses of conceptual and abstract art were rampant. I think that this publication, edited by Deanna MannaioIi, is an indispensable starting point for those who want to study in depth the master's work. -- Fabio Rustici
