Duration: 70 minutes without interval
Created as a performance-debate on the theme of legality, the show made its debut in 2011 at the Teatro di San Carlo in Naples. In co-production with the Piccolo since 2017, it has been enriched with a further narrative evolution which brings to the stage an in-depth examination of the presence of the Mafia in Rome and the ties between the Calabria ‘Ndrangheta and Lombardy.
The stories examine the known and unknown victims of organised crime, stories of civic commitment and social redemption, individual and collective responsibility, institutional connivance and implied consent. The play is a “reasoned” provocation against that transversal and omnipresent Mafia network that wishes to destroy the collective conscience and the ability to understand and react. Dieci storie proprio così is an integral part of an experimental project of collaboration between theatres, prison institutes, schools and civil society.
“While we write these notes - says the authors Emanuela Giordano and Giulia Minoli - we continue to collect witness accounts, questions and reflections with examine not only the actions of others but also our own individual responsibility and the act of liberation that we have to carry out in order to ensure that rights and duties are equal for all. The theatre does not send messages, it limits itself to offer stimuli and this is what we are trying to do, with much conviction, thinking above all of the young. And we are addressing the young with a work which we are carrying out in schools throughout Italy, in order to ensure that the play is not only an event but a part of a journey to discover themes which are fundamental for our growth”.
