O U T !

OUT! is
about what each one of us felt like talking about, and it’s about the inside as much as about the outside.

There are stories and non-stories about homes, forests, cities, distant planets, videogames, dreams, illnesses, paranoia, and other stuff.

OUT! is
an editorial project inspired by Boccaccio’s Decameron*’s fictional framework of storytelling.

 

[*The book tells of a group of young people, seven women and three men who for ten days in 1348 stayed outside Florence to escape the black plague that raged in the city at that time. To occupy the early afternoon hours, each of them came up with a story a day to entertain the others.]

OUT! is
a collection of our more or less weird texts created between March 22nd and April 5th, 2020, during the #Covid19 lockdown, by a few writers who were yearning for telling the last weeks of infinite and unhoped-for domestic freedom.
