With the expression “Lucus a non lucendo” (wood of non-light), Carlo Levi describes the landscape known during his confinement in Basilicata. After two generations, Stefano Levi Della Torre embarks on a journey to the places of Carlo’s public life. The traveling companions are Carlo Ginzburg and Alessandra Lancellotti, who embodies a new disciple, a role that Stefano had played with Carlo. The documentary is a dialectical comparison that alternates the pictorial landscape with the memorial one, to become a separate work in which one of the masterpieces of Italian anthropology, Christ Stopped at Eboli, finds a new cinematographic translation.
