A tragedy happens on a day of 1987 inside the wall of Urbino. Two girls, two sisters, Ester and Bianca are found dead on a bench of a park, with a needle in their veins. Ten years later, twenty years later, today, Ester and Bianca are still alive in the stories of many people. A university student would like to comfort their old and sick mother. Some young musicians seem to inspire to their discs collection. An unsuccessful writer decides to talk about them in a novel. Also objects and memories from the 80s and 90s survive, drugs, glory, inflexibility - a picture on the shelf of the kitchen, a rock song, a piece of crime news of Resto del Carlino, the ring bartered by the two sister to get the last dose of heroin. Collecting four stories linked Ester and Bianca, the new novel by Alessio Torino tells about a physical place, Urbino, that becomes little by little a universal space of the heart.
