In Your Girl Madame Bovary interprets Chiara Bersani and not the opposite, asserts Sciarroni, who thus reverses expectations in leading the discourse for an alternative reinterpretation: Emma Bovary doesn’t kill herself, she doesn’t suffocate, but continues to breathe in an impossible souvenir photo, in an Italian pop song. And so Matteo Ramponi, from object of desire, becomes a companion in the anti-tragic mechanism.

Augusto is a tribute to the clown and to laughter. One, two, nine dancers walk along an imaginary track; they are overcome by laughter which becomes the driving soundtrack, before escalating into a thousand nuances, impossible to stop.
