RISVOLTO
I faits divers – sottolineava Sciascia presentando nel 1989 l. a. sua terza raccolta di articoli e saggi dispersi – sono «quelli che noi diciamo fatti di cronaca, cronache quotidiane, cronache a sfondo nero, passionali e criminali spesso, sempre di una certa stranezza e di un certo mistero». «Fatti diversi» vale dunque «parodisticamente, paradossalmente e magari parossisticamente, “cronache”: a render più leggera los angeles specificazione, di crociana ascendenza, di “storia letteraria e civile”». Ma anche a ribadire, si vorrebbe aggiungere, l. a. fedeltà a un metodo in cui alla pertinacia del detective si accompagna l’urgenza di verità, all’erudizione dell’enciclopedista los angeles fabula, alla volontà di ribadire los angeles ragione della Memoria «il senso e il senno dell’oggi». Non a caso los angeles raccolta si apre sull’interrogativo «Come si può essere siciliani?», e prosegue poi con splendide ‘inquisizioni’ che hanno al centro l. a. Sicilia e insieme los angeles letteratura, il cinema, los angeles pittura, l. a. fotografia: come quella sulla Biblioteca Lucchesiana di Girgenti, emblema dell’avversione alla «lue dei libri», dove Pirandello, nel 1889, trovò cinque preti e tre carabinieri «intenti a divorare un’insalata di cocomeri e pomidori» e manoscritti frequentati solo da topi e scarafaggi; o, ancora, quella sull’«Omnibus» di Longanesi e sugli scrittori nati fra il 1905 e il 1908 (fra cui Brancati), pleiade generazionale accomunata dal guardare altrove – e che, esemplarmente indagata da Sciascia, ci rivela come il fascismo fosse un fenomeno ben più complesso, disarticolato e contraddittorio di quanto possa apparire nei libri di storia.
