The village of Maranola rises from the sea, always shining. For its inhabitants, the seascape is like a “magic lantern” - a futuristic video with sounds and smells, a high definition screen.
The sea is there, but is not touched, in an ambivalent relationship with the village that continues to prefer the mountains. Yet, in times of war, the sea could be a form of livelihood, as narrated by the women of the period, who walked from the village to the beaches with green glass bottles on their heads, which were filled and brought back home.
The sea water was then boiled to get a fistful of salt to barter, somewhere in the mountains. Today, with the same bottles, the sea returns to Maranola, deeply as only stories of the past can be.
