Un matrimonio semplice semplice

Esperimenti di ontologia sociale (una commedia vera)

Ivo Kara-Pešić

pp. 115-121


What happens when people born in a “non-existing” country are faced with Italian burocracy? What happens if they want to get married? This short paper discusses, in a humorous way, some serious problems of our everyday social life made of documents, stamps, statements, licences, certificates, the immense realm where esse est scribi is a basic principle. What comes to light is that documents and data they posess determine our lives in a crucial way, and when they are not updated the past seems to master the present.
