Abraham Ferrascini, that of Bellano's hardware store, is a bowler. As individual he is not good, but he lakes like God commands and paired with a good combat becomes unbeatable. He was pulled up to dot by the manager of the workers circle, Mario Stimolo, coach for passion and why three years ago, in 1955, he lost his right arm under a press and therefore playing no longer spoken. Now the Ferrascini has all the cards in order to win the semi-finals of the provincial championship scheduled in Cermenate next Sunday. But there is a hitch. He was brother-in-law, the Eraldo, the one who lives in Lucerne is sick. Forty-eight hours gave him the doctors from there, Swiss, precise. And now Abraham's wife, Rosalba, wants at all costs to reach her sister, but above all give her ultimate a last greeting, maybe a last kiss. But will they go to go and return to the semi-finals? It depends. If the Eraldo dies by Tuesday, at most, you can do. Bon, then. A look at 1100, tire brake oil; Identity card renewed at the last minute; First stop the Step of the San Bernardino, then down straight to Lucerne: just follow the signs, even if they are in German, because the name of that city there is understand the same. Inspired by an anecdote linked to a stay in Lucerne of the great Prague writer, "Kafka's apples" stages the best of Andrea Vitali characters.
