An encounter with fifteen masters in different branches of culture, who, having happily reached their final season, make themselves available to be filmed while they speak about their work, about old age, about death. The outcome is a chest containing rare images and precious words. A document to be passed on to posterity. The simple and informal chats take place in the homes – of the great actor, of the famous poet, of the successful writer, of the appreciated musician – and all bear an input to give start to a monologue, which turns into a dialogue among all the interviewed persons who, even if rich of years, anecdotes and success, skip the temptation to insist on aspects of their long biography and, with reference to Giacomo Leopardi, turn to consider “their present time, and its sound”.
