An essay on betrayal.

Cheating is considered an incredibly despicable act, and yet it has a lot to do with the desire, freedom, and perhaps – if interpreted differently – even the health of a couple. But how to arrive at a solution? By skilfully mixing the literary tradition and one's own experience, criticism and practice, we will try to understand first of all why the idea of ​​abandoning exclusivity in the couple is so opposed, and then to analyze the multiple nuances of a word that it sounds like a stab, and yet, sometimes, it attracts us inexorably. After the successful investigation into the repressed ambiguities in Italian literature, Luca Starita returns to the bookstores with a new essay on an element that has always followed and pervades the lives of those who write and those who live, and yet always remains far too hidden.
