The startingpoint for Trieste are two sources: an investigation around Picasso’s work about the figure of Minotauro, and a real experience about an attempt to stop the pass of time.
In the story a young girl writes beautiful poems while her brother -a minotauro- kills sleeping writers. A man tries to reproduce a group of pictures taken by his own father 15 years ago. A dream narrated by one of the characters changes everything.
