Heinz is one of the eight tales in the book The Foxes Come at Night by Cees Nooteboom. But who is Heinz? It is the name of an honorary consul, an entrepreneur who chose to live in the Ligurian riviera, close to the frequently stormy sea that is his only true company. Like one of Hemingway’s characters, he was born to get lost, with his desperate vitality, his perfect dives, litres of gin to fight nostalgia, and the dream to move to Tonga island, where with one step it is possible to stride over the imaginary line that separates today from yesterday.


Anna Bonaiuto
actress, was directed in theatre shows by the best Italian directors, such as Luca Ronconi, Mario Missiroli and Carlo Cecchi. In cinema, she worked with Mario Martone and Nanni Moretti: in the past few years she played the lead in the films Il Caimano (The Caiman), Mio fratello è figlio unico (My brother is an only child), La ragazza del lago (The girl by the lake), Il Divo (The Divine), in the last named ones together with Toni Servillo, with whom she collaborates also in theatre.
