"Meeting: an assembly or gathering of people; the act or process of coming together; the length and circumstances of such an encounter. Note: implies a common social purpose..." (Dictionary)
A group of men and women of all ages have been brought together in the course of their travels after World War II, when Italy regained its national and territorial unity. They make up a primitive community which seeks to erase not only the distress created by the war but also the hardships of life and hunger, and to protect them from violence, misery and fear… Amid the ruins of this post-war period, these men and women build and invent new a rapport, both in their professional and daily lives, between themselves, between the sexes, between generations, between diverse social and geographical origins, between antagonistic political camps. The group maintains a "register", a kind of diary, as if it were entering the minutes of an inquiry or a trial.
