Smell of naphtha in the air, nostalgia clenched to the banister. And Grande Atlantico smokes under immense skies, which clear up and cloud over. The ship goes from Buenos Aires to Hamburg, stops at Paranagua, Santos and Rio. Crossing the equator, it touches Dakar and claims northern Europe. Back and forth, on the Atlantic Ocean, a prisoner of endless comings and goings established by the market. Forget Melville, Conrad, Stevenson, they can help you get through some afternoons, dream of other worlds. Nowadays, life at sea is different: less romantic, a lot of work and few words.

Marco Ciriello was born in the summertime of 1975, he studied Marx and Freud, yet he chose Saul Bellow and Richard Ford, he does not tolerate those who involve themselves too much, he has travelled many times by the Taranto-Ancona express train, he is keen on planes and hopes Messi will join Napoli football team, he thinks that the key of life does not lie in the houses by Tadao Ando but in the paintings by Mario Schifano, he takes heavy dose of Carmelo Bene, he loves writings on the walls, ghost villages and stories of thieves. His works have been translated into Japanese, this is what he is most proud of, so far.

She loves pistachio cookies and button necklaces. She cannot live in the same house for more than six months: this is her worst defect. She might move to New York, if India was not so far.
