“Se mi addomestichi, avremo bisogno l’uno dell’altra. Per me tu sarai unico al mondo. Per te io sarò unica al mondo...” Il Piccolo Principe è una delle opere letterarie più famose e lette del Ventesimo secolo, venduta in circa centoquaranta milioni di copie e tradotta in oltre duecento lingue. Pur concepito come un libro per l’infanzia, il racconto è diventato nel tempo un vero e proprio “cult”, amato anche dagli adulti, ripreso in numerose trasposizioni cinematografiche. Al centro della narrazione una storia di amore e amicizia, incardinata su un pilota d’aerei precipitato nel Sahara che incontra uno strano bambino, il Piccolo Principe, che gli dice di essere lì piombato da un lontano asteroide, su cui vive da solo assieme a tre vulcani e una piccola rosa, da lui amata incondizionatamente. Dopo aver vagabondato per molti pianeti, il Piccolo Principe incontra alla fine, giunto sulla Terra, una volpe del deserto dalle lunghe orecchie, che lo supplica di addomesticarla. In questa scena c’è forse la chiave di volta dell’intero racconto, il suo cuore emotivo: la nostalgia struggente di un’amicizia pura. Il grande classico per l’infanzia ma anche per gli adulti, nella nuova, meravigliosa versione di una delle più brave traduttrici italiane.

Born in Lyon of France in 1900, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry considered himself primarily as a pilot. For 20 years he made numerous cartography and mailing missions for commercial companies. Air transmissions were the key factor concerning his professional and literature profile. He started writing The Little Prince during the WW II, when he was forced to abandon airforce (due to Germany’s invasion in France) and seek refuge in New York. His great desire of going back, hopefully after the war, is depicted as the nostalgia of being a child again, something that is so evident in Little Prince.

The Sahara desert is the scenery of Little Prince’s story. The narrator’s plane has crashed there and he has scarcely some food and water to survive. Trying to comprehend what caused the crash, the Little Prince appears. The serious blonde little boy asks to draw him a sheep. The narrator consents to the strange fellow’s request. They soon become friends and the Little Prince informs the pilot that he is from a small planet, the asteroid 325, talks to him about the baobabs, his planet volcanoes and the mysterious rose that grew on his planet. He also talks to him about their friendship and the lie that evoked his journey to other planets. Often puzzled by the grown-ups’ behavior, the little traveler becomes a total and eternal symbol of innocence and love, of responsibility and devotion. Through him we get to see how insightful children are and how grown-ups aren’t. Children use their heart to feel what’s really important, not the eyes…
