Perché è necessario lasciar tracce Ferraris  afferma la traccia come un tratto necessario dell’essere sociale. Ma la traccia non è mai in piena luce perché è per definizione solo un’orma, un frammento che deve essere interrogato, interpretato e potenzialmente frainteso. Come la fotografia di Safran Foer, la traccia ci incanta e ci seduce più per quello che nasconde che per quello che rivela.
