"You have to fish a thousand large nacres, bring them out of the shadows, to obtain two hundred and fifty grams of sea silk thread, only two hundred and fifty grams of light with a thousand large shells"

A shawl, at first sight common if it were not made of Pinna nobilis threads, the great Mediterranean mother-of-pearl. When she finds the object preciously preserved in the museum's reserves, the memories come back to the narrator. Fold after fold, a family history unfolds in Fascist Italy, with the fragile threads of the mother-of-pearl forming the framework. An authoritarian and macho brother, his two sisters Nella and Bice protecting the shawl as a totemic object hidden from human sight, nature and its smells, its lights, are the material of this sensual and embodied story.

Emmanuelle Pagano has an artistic background and is an art teacher. The story Pour être chez moi launched her literary career. Through the publication of numerous novels, stories and short stories, she has established herself as a major author in the world of French literature
