Gramsci e le donne di Noemi Ghetti. Un triplice sguardo tra politica, sentimenti, eros.

di Ivana Rinaldi

Noemi Ghetti con il saggio, Gramsci e le donne. Gli affetti, gli amori, le idee, Donzelli, Roma, 2020 si conferma attenta studiosa di Gramsci:  Gramsci nel cieco carcere degli ereteci, L’Asino d’oro, 2014; La cartolina di Gramsci. A Mosca, tra amori e politica 1922-1924, Donzelli, 2016. Qui l’autrice esamina un documento minore, che svela la complessa vita sentimentale e l’intreccio di vita e d’amore con le tre sorelle Schucht, Eugenia, Giulia e Tatiana. É notte inoltrata, quel 16 ottobre 1922, quando scrive da Ivanovo-Voznesensk, importante centro tessile a duecentocinquanta chilometri da Mosca, a Eugenia, ricoverata nel sanitorio di Serebriani Bor, lo stesso in cui Antonio è stato curato durante l’estate. Nei mesi precedenti tra i due è nata una storia, ma quella sera a scrivere a Eugenia, Gramsci non è solo. Con lui si trova Julka, sorella di Eugenia, la bella violinista che ha incontrato a settembre proprio a Serebriani. Per entrambi è stato un colpo di fulmine, che nei mesi successivi ha dovuto fare i conti con le gelosie di Eugenia. Trovatosi poco più che trentenne al centro di questo complicato triangolo amoroso, Gramsci si rivela autoironico e allusivo, passionale e spregiudicato, nel tenere le fila del triangolo.

Nel ripercorrere il rapporto di Gramsci con le “sue” donne, prima le “donne di casa”, poi con le compagne del biennio rosso, Camilla, Ravera, Rita Montagnana, Teresa Noce; con le grandi protagoniste rivoluzionarie del Novecento, Clara Zetkin, Alexandra  Kollontaj, Inessa Armand, Rosa Luxemburg e infine con Pia Carena, suo primo amore torinese,  e le sorelle Schucht, Noemi Ghetti ci offre uno sguardo appassionato e partecipe di quello che è stato il complesso rapporto di Gramsci con le donne, ma anche la sua attenzione per la “questione femminile”. L’autrice analizza inoltre il complesso rapporto di queste donne con i loro compagni di partito. Già dalla fine degli anni Sessanta è emersa con forza non solo tra gli intellettuali di sinistra la necessità di rileggere il corso della Storia partendo dalla parola d’ordine femminista: “il personale è politico”. Sono i movimenti giovanili ma soprattutto le femministe degli anni Settanta a porre  la necessità di nuovi costumi e la messa in discussione delle forme classiche della militanza e della lotta politica. Nel 1976, Adele Cambria pubblicò Amore e rivoluzione. Tre sorelle per un rivoluzionario: le lettere inedite della moglie e delle cognate di Antonio Gramsci, (SugarCo, 1976) a cui rispose Andrea Righi, Non ci sono risposte compagno Gramsci, non ancora alle tue domande. Soggettività e differenza sessuale: un dialogo tra Adele Cambria e Antonio Gramsci. (Carte italiane, II, 4, 2008).

Tornando al testo di Ghetti, è evidente che la studiosa ha seguito il legame stretto tra  privato e politico con un criterio filologico non sempre lineare, tuttavia interessante. La vita privata e politica  di Gramsci viene ricostruita attraverso la sua corrispondenza, Le lettere dal Carcere, di cui Einaudi ha appena riproposto una nuova edizione ampliata, ma ancora aperta, a cura di Francesco Giasi , una recensione del dramma teatrale di Ibsen, Casa di bambola, pubblicata nell’Avanti! Il 22 marzo 1917, e quanto il pensatore scrisse nei Quaderni a proposito della “Quistione sessuale”, ovvero della necessità di una nuova identità femminile, intimamente libera da schiavitù arcaiche e da condizionamenti culturali. Nelle pagine fitte di citazioni le voci e le fisionomie si articolano seguendo la biografia del fondatore del PC d’It. E così si incontrano la madre e le sorelle nella natia Ales; il primo amore amore torinese, Pia Carena: sarà lei a fargli conoscere gli scritti di Roman Rolland da cui è tratto il concetto del “Pessimismo della ragione, ottimismo della volonta”. Si scoprono a Torino Camilla Ravera, Rita Montagnana, Teresa Noce: è la stagione di una Torino inquieta, segnata dalle lotte operaie del “biennio rosso” ( 1919-20).  In famiglia, in amore, in politica, dalle origine sarde al biennio rosso, attraverso l’esperienza nell’Urss, poi a Vienna, a Roma, fino alla lunga detenzione dal 1926 al 1937, data della sua morte, le donne furone destinatarie delle sue lettere. Mi sono soffermata a lungo su queste, che fossero indirizzate alla mamma, alle sorelle, alle sue compagne di partito, alle tre sorelle russe, e in ognuna ho trovato il nucleo intimo e profondo di un uomo, prima che politico e rivoluzionario, che ha sempre cercata il dialogo con l’Altra. Dapprima con le compagne di partito italiane, poi con le rivoluzionarie Clara Zetkin e Alexandra Kollontay, sempre in conflitto con Lenin sulla questione femminile. Per il capo della Rivoluzione, specialmente dopo la NEP, le voci femminili che si pronunciavano contro il patriarcato andavano messe a tacere: “Il libero rapporto tra i sessi deconcentrava e disperdeva le energie, che invece andavano indirizzate alla “causa rivoluzionaria”. Tutte loro, invece, insieme alle/agli artisti, agli operai, rivendicavano le aspirazioni da cui era nata la rivoluzione.

Sono commoventi e piene di gratitudine le lettere di Gramsci alla madre, percorse da amore filiale, come intense sono quelle indirizzate alla sua amata Julka:

Ricordi quando sei ripartita dal bosco d’argento? Io ti ho ti accompagnato fino all’orlo della strada maestra e sono rimasto a lungo a vederti allontanare. C’eravamo appena conosciuti, ma io ti avevo fatto già parecchi dispetti e ti avevo fatto anche piangere; ti avevo canzonato col comizio dei gufi, così ti vedo sempre mentre ti allontani a passi brevi, col violino in una mano e nell’altra la borsa da viaggio”.

Intrise di nostalgia e desiderio:

Sento la tua assenza, sento un grande vuoto intorno a me”.

E di dubbi:

“Che Julka sia stata solo finora un’agente della Cekà inviata per saggiare la mia compatibilità?”

Gli stessi dubbi che in qualche modo ripercorrono il rapporto con Tatiana, l’ultima delle sorelle Schucht. Si chiede Enzo Bettiza, studioso dell’Unione Sovietica: “Tatiana è l’unica che lo ha veramente amato, o era stata solo una spia sovietica, un “poliziotta amorosa”, nel ruolo di funzionaria dell’ambasciata sovietica italiana, con il compito di sorvegliare i movimenti, i sospiri, e i respiri di un uomo-simbolo, in odore di eresia, ormai fortemente schierato nel contenzioso che vedeva Stalin contro tutta la vecchia guardia leninista?” Rimasta a vivere a Roma, Gramsci strinse un rapporto d’affetto e di stima intellettuale con lei. L’unica che gli rimase vicina nei suoi anni di carcere, il tramite col mondo esterno, anche con Giulia, ormai malata, con il suo equilibrio instabile, creatura lunare, incapace di realizzare che il ruolo di moglie di Gramsci non è adatto alla sua personalità. Tatiana è inoltre colei che fece conoscere i Quaderni al mondo.

Sono veramente pochi i momenti trascorsi insieme da Giulia e Antonio. Dalla loro unione nascono Delio e Giuliano, rispettivamente il 10 agosto 1924 e il 30 agosto 1926 nella lontana Unione Sovietica, mentre Gramsci è a Roma e avrà occasione di vedere solo Delio nel 1925. Sulla scena politica italiana incombe la catastrofe e Gramsci viene accusato di voler sovvertire lo stato. Non sostenuto dai suoi compagni di partito, primo fra gli altri Togliatti,  viene arrestato, poi mandato al confino, infine a San Vittore e poi a Roma dove morì, ormai ridotto a “morto vivente” in una clinica privata,il 27 aprile 1937. Al funerale non andò nessuno tranne Tatiana e la polizia fascista. Gramsci, prima della sua morte si era reso conto di essere un uomo solo e di non essere desiderato da nessuna parte, non a Mosca dov’era sua moglie Julka, ormai ombra vagante da un manicomio all’altro, né dai figli fagocitati dal regime sovietico, né dagli ex compagni della prima ora rivoluzionaria; non a Ghilarza dove si era stabilita la sua famiglia d’origine, le sue sorelle, ma non più l’adorata mamma Peppina.

Durante gli anni del carcere, con la sua originale sensibilità Gramsci affina la questione sessuale, di cui si erano occupate a lungo e in conflitto con i dirigenti uomini, le rivoluzionarie Zetkin. Luxemburg e specialmente Alexandra Kollontay (mi permetto di rimandare a un mio scritto in Leggendaria, n. 137, novembre, 2018), la quale da sempre si era occupata della relazione tra i sessi, ponendosi in conflitto con Lenin e con altri esponenti del PCUS. In Largo all’Eros alato, una lettera rivolta alla gioventù, Kollontai smaschera “ il nucleo inconfessabile della rivoluzione sovietica”. Non vi sarebbe mai stata una rivoluzione politica-economica, senza passare per quella culturale e morale. Uno scardinamento del rapporto tra i sessi che nessuna rivoluzione socialista avrebbe garantito.

Nelle pagine finali del libro, Noemi Ghetti ricorda una poesia di Nazim Hikmet, costretto in esilio in Unione Sovietica: “Sono cent’anni che non ho visto il tuo viso”. Quando venne scritta questa poesia erano passati, nota l’autrice, quasi cento anni dalla pubblicazone del primo libro del Capitale di Marx. Nel non riconoscimento dei rapporti d’amore e dell’identità della donna, sta il campo oltre il quale il marxismo non seppe spingersi. Donne, bambini, artisti, continuavano ad essere negati, mentre sarebbe stato necessario “per sottrarli al dominio invisibile costruito sull’antinomia tra cultura e natura, tra razionale e irrazionale, ricomporre la scissione tra corpo e anima, l’inizio del tempo di ogni essere umano”. Gli artisti non avevano mai cessato di invocare l’irrazionalità dell’amore. Nel 1959, il regista Grigorij  Čuchrai racconta nella Ballata di un soldato la struggente bellezza di una storia d’amore, interrotta dalle ragioni maschili dell’ideologia, della politica, della dittatura, della guerra.
