By Enrico Brignano

ISBN-10: 8817084255

ISBN-13: 9788817084253

period una sera di primavera inoltrata e le zanzare, grosse come droni, avevano già cominciato a scassare i cabasisi, come direbbe Montalbano. Andai sul terrazzo e mi misi a guardare il landscape. period una visione da togliere il fiato: le cime dei monti in lontananza, i palazzi che si stagliavano contro il cielo, l’accampamento degli zingari con le Mercedes parcheggiate fuori dalle baracche. Vedevo l. a. città svanire in un verde sconfinato. E mi sovvennero Leopardi e le morte stagioni e l. a. presente e viva e il suono del telefonino, ma non volli rispondere. Rimasi lì a lungo, fino a quando il buio non inghiottì tutte le cose e le stelle…

Tutto ebbe inizio con un cambiamento epocale: il trasloco di Brignano all’ultimo piano di un palazzo che ne conta più di venti. Da lì Enrico, scrutando l’infinito, si despatchedì invaso dal desiderio di conoscere. D’altro canto, solo poco prima ai li mortacci dei facchini rumeni, carichi di casse di libri, non aveva forse risposto: «Fatti non foste a viver come brutti ma consistent with seguir virtute e canoscenza»? Ecco, quindi, che sbocciarono in lui mille domande. Da dove si origina il tutto? Ma è nato prima l’uovo o l. a. gallina? Dio c’è e non si vede, o ce fa e non ci sente? Come siamo diventati sette miliardi e duecentonovantaquattro milioni di persone? E, soprattutto, dove stiamo andando? In Ci siamo evoluti bene Brignano si cimenta a rispondere alle grandi domande che l’uomo si pone dalla notte dei tempi, ripercorrendo l. a. storia della nostra specie dalle pitture rupestri agli cellphone, dall’invenzione del fuoco allo sbarco sulla Luna, dal baratto di mammuth alla speculazione finanziaria. Ne nasce un flusso irresistibile di riflessioni esilaranti, e insieme un po’ serie, su di noi e sul mondo che ci circonda. In un libro che fa molto ridere, ma anche pensare.
