In The Fat Man Arpeggios, Pellegrino D'Acierno presents a ludic portrait of the Fat Man -- a metaphysical dandy and “foolosopher” -- who voices, through the lightness of arpeggios, his existential and amorous dilemmas.
In the dream of a cyclical night / the Fat Man, in peplum and with a lyre, / hastened to Hades to retrieve Eurydice, / the day within the absolute night
