A. S. D. I. U. G. – Rome Will be Destroyed In the Day of A Roberto Recchioni feat. Il Muro del Canto | Review
Roberto Recchioni is an author who rarely grants a relaxing break, it is well-known, and even when it is not present on the shelves with something that bears his signature is always at work in view of its versatility and the many projects that involve a variety of editorial sources.
Had left him, with regard to the projects signed by Feltrinelli Comics, with the caustic, The End of Reason – our review HERE – where it was described a scenario of a dystopian, but not too much, of a company of the appearance and fear among the no-vax and intolerance.
A. S. D. I. U. G. – Rome Will be Destroyed In One Day, the roman author recovers the setting of the first book, but expands in a manner in some ways diametrically opposed to, and more intimate.
Five in the morning, on the beach of Ostia, a giant monster, taller than a hundred metres, it emerges from the sea. And advances toward Rome, beginning to devastarla. While the eternal city – or presumed such, it is unable to manage the crisis, cross to the stories and destinies of a young boy somali, a swing of half-age, of the masters of the city on vacation, a young man in the south of Rome that would like to just stay sbracato on the sofa... and, among others, even of someone very important, who resides in St. Peter.
The question seems to be clear and explicit: how do you deal with the apocalypse on a personal level?
A. S. D. I. U. G. – Rome Will be Destroyed In A Day is a book that lives on the contrast of two souls: the more sci-fi, with clear references to the imaginary japanese-made kaiju and mecha giant, and that more neo-realist, which is reflected in the texts in the roman de Il Muro del Canto really delicate and “real”.
It is in this contrast that Recchioni shows his ability to tell everyday stories in a sort of texture horizontal style slice of life in which the revelation, once again, is at the door but the common man is sucked into a whirlwind of other concerns, earthly materials. Evident in this sense a certain influence of Gipi if not for the structure of the narrative itself and the peculiarities of the characters chosen.
The style of the Recchioni, however, is immediately evident when you give the inevitable, and due, social critique, between the mayors and the ex-ministers of the interior both when perhaps exaggerates a little with the fun spirit of the finale that jars slightly with the rest of the book.
Some minor step in the “surface” does not affect the quality of the R. S. D. I. U. G. – Rome Will be Destroyed In A Day that is a book ominously romantic, I would say almost proletarian, and opens definitely one scenario which is very interesting for the evolution of style by Roberto Recchioni perfectly at ease both in the role of the minstrel of the roman than of inquiring minds.
Graphically A. S. D. I. U. G. – Rome Will be Destroyed In A Day it is stylistically more close to the illustration to comics real while balancing very well these two approaches, and managing to maintain a high level of the “readability” of the book flowing and fast-paced. Abandoned some suggestions ottantiane from the United States, the roman author opts for a style of painting and photography that engages in a certain british tradition coming from years ’80. An essential work, but effective.
No carto-technical volume published by Feltrinelli Comics unexceptionable in its packaging as dry in content.
