Riassunto: "That Old Bilbao Moon" is a memoir, an ethnography of desire, an essay tracking a generation's consciousness, a manifesto for a new city and a new subject after the shipwreck. This Dantean narration presents "characters," including its author, whose lives do not conform to idea cultural models. They are rather figures under the threat of disintegration who require self-transformation for their survival. Every conservation and event here narrated is ethnographically factual, yet the book is essentially about the fundamental fantasies and subjective conversions of a generation surrendered to "the passion for the real." This Bilbao generation of the sixties-branded inaugurally by the trauma of ETA, socialism, atheism. Aresti's Malden behera (Downfall), the survival of Euskara, the art of Oteiza and Chillida, feminism-found in Frank Gerhy's "shipwreck" masterpiece its ultimate emblem and the promise of a new city. It is the architecture of labyrinth, a building of cuts and torsions, "the reincarnation of Marilyn Monroe" (Muschamp), turned into the new face of "that old Bilbao moon" that Brecht sang as "the most beautiful in the world." Because even after the ruins and the defeat the mandate persisted: you must change your life, you must transform your city.
