Il comandante delle cause perse

Paolo Rossi goes to war. From the Trojan war, mother of all battles, to those of today. Virtual, symbolic, metaphorical yet very real.
“From daily battles - explains the author - from the moment we wake up on Monday morning, to those fought in the nuptial bed. From the dirty to the clean, civil or uncivil, even rude Everyone’s war. Often everyone against everyone else. The wars we witness with remote control in hand, distant wars, like passive soldiers, almost simple fans. Ah, football, that inestimable and fascinating simulacrum of war!... one which, considering its power, is not so metaphorical. Anyway, that’s as much as I can say. Improvised theatre, a category to which this event belongs, cannot and must not be reduced to a summary. It would be like sending an email, before an erotic moment, to the future partner complete with the evening’s programme... and what if you then wanted to do something different? I can only add that any reference to facts or persons is completely deliberate and that both Aristophanes and Jonathan Swift have already given so much and can now take a well-deserved break, particularly because, democratically speaking, this could all get rather nasty. In any case, ‘nothing of particular concern’, as my ex-GP Vincenzo Jannacci would say”.

Piccolo Teatro Studio Melato
from 21 to 31 May 2020
Il comandante delle cause perse(dall’Iliade alle guerre del Fútbol)
by and starring Paolo Rossi
based on a real dream and written by Rossi himself together with humans encountered in the street, in the centre or in the suburbs, at the local trattoria, sleeping in the hereafter, at the cinema Bianchini or at the football stadium and so on
on the stage, three entertainers without any particular role: one, Paolo Rossi himself - in great shape - and two musician comedians, Emanuele Dell’Aquila and Alex Orciari
there are no sets, or better, there is what there is, and it’s more than enough
somewhat original music composed live if he feels like it by the maestro Emanuele Dell’Aquila
directed by Renato Sarti
a Verdiana production
