The theme is introduced by a possible definition of the concepts of utopia, dystopia and antiutopia. Through the analysis of the constituent elements of the same utopia, it seeks to highlight what are the negative aspects that may arise from utopia to the territory and what might be the aspects of a conscious reaction to this negativity. The hard contact between utopia and reality and the push that the same utopia can provide to the system, are then taken into account. The metaphor of the grotesque has always been a formidable weapon, and it is considered, at this point, as this metaphor can generate consciousness by utopia. The grotesque, in this way, highlights the ridiculous aspects of the dystopia in a closed society, demonstrating that through the image and satire, political and social criticism operates a removal of ideological radicalism, showing everyone the naked king and the worm under the stone.

Abstract

The theme is introduced by a possible definition of the concepts of utopia, dystopia and antiutopia. Through the analysis of the constituent elements of the same utopia, it seeks to highlight what are the negative aspects that may arise from utopia to the territory and what might be the aspects of a conscious reaction to this negativity. The hard contact between utopia and reality and the push that the same utopia can provide to the system, are then taken into account. The metaphor of the grotesque has always been a formidable weapon, and it is considered, at this point, as this metaphor can generate consciousness by utopia. The grotesque, in this way, highlights the ridiculous aspects of the dystopia in a closed society, demonstrating that through the image and satire, political and social criticism operates a removal of ideological radicalism, showing everyone the naked king and the worm under the stone.
