Mnemosyne o la costruzione del senso n° 13 – 2020

Autobiographie / Convivium, Nourriture-Frankenstein, Vampirisme

Managing editor Beatrice Barbalato

The issue n. 13 of Mnemosyne o la costruzione del senso features a set of studies on Autobiography: Banqueting,
Frankenstein Food, Vampirism. These studies align themselves on two opposing fronts. One front presents
the act of feeding oneself as Rabelaisian or Rousseauian, giving value to the moment of sociability it offers,
its being a source of wellbeing and happiness – an idea that, in truth, seems to be more often a mirage
than reality. The other front shows the dark, obscure, disturbing, vampiric sides of one's relationship with
food, the ambiguous ties with the context. In contrast with an apparent delight in sharing, the moment of
eating together collectively is experienced – just as these articles propose – as a net in which an individual
feels trapped, and which leads to a rejection of conventions and traditions, and a willingness to construct a
solitary, solipsistic identity at all costs.
