The documentary is the portrait of Simone Massi, ‘resistant narrator’. It is the narrative of his poetic work, the uncontaminated bearer of memories linked to rural civilisation, to the land of the Marche region, to the sense of the simplicity of little things, of everyday gestures concealing profound truths and existential questions. His works and his lifestyle are characterised by a harmonic and coherent simplicity and purity. Simone tells of his land, his ancestors the peasant civilisation which is gone forever. These are little stories overlooked by history.
