A diary, a reminiscence, an act of love that over many years - including a series of lengthy stops and surprising starts - Alberto Grifi created for Patrizia Vicinelli, the poetess from Bologna who was his partner in the 1960s. A very private work, almost a "family affair," the film never came out until 1995, a few years after Vicinelli's death, when a new version of the work was presented in Salerno. This new "Viaggio" was enhanced by the score that Paolo Fresu wrote expressly for it, adding a fascinating sonority to the images that mainly portrayed a poetess at work, intent on the sound of words.
