For Piglia, the laboratory of writing is in the diaries, in constant exercise. Even when they are not organized narratives, in a strict sense, Emilio Renzi's diaries are the starting point for Piglia's fictional constructions, that is, the diary as proof of discipline, trade, free time dedicated to experimentation.
On the other hand, in Arlt we find the saturation of work, the journalistic exercise as the laboratory of creation, another type of newspaper, the trade that is built in the midst of daily work.
