I me ciamava per nome: 44.787. Risiera di San Sabba

Duration: one hour and 15 minutes without interval

“Few know what the Riseria di San Sabba in Trieste was in all its horror; the only Nazi concentration camp in Italy, complete with crematorium (its victims totalling between three and five thousand). A cloak of guilt has silenced voices ever since the war ended, at times contaminating evidence regarding the events of just over seventy-five years ago”, writes Renato Sarti in his director’s notes.

The play - an example of documentary theatre: an account, a story, memory and a warning for the future - returns to the stage on the occasion of Remembrance Day. A play which is also tied to the memory of Strehler, who was born in that area and who in 1995 took part in a reading held inside the Risiera. Moni Ovadia, who was present, recalls the event: “Illuminated by theatrical lighting, behind the bars of one of the cells, shone the unmistakable white hair of Giorgio Strehler. With his powerful Barcola-accented voice, the theatrical genius and relentless anti-fascist incarnated the voice of the prisoners.
