Con il vostro irridente silenzio

Duration: 1h and 40 minutes without inverval

During his imprisonment, Aldo Moro speaks, remembers, writes, answers, questions, confesses, accuses and takes his leave. He pours words onto paper: he writes letters, addresses his relatives, his friends, his party colleagues and government institutions; he makes a brief will. Brought together, these writings form a long political, historical and personal work - the so-called memorial - taking his cue from the questions asked by his jailers.
The letters and the memorial are Moro’s last words, the mass of writings written during his 55 days of imprisonment. Those found, or rather, those that we have.  A relentless flow of words that he immediately sought to stem, silence, mystify and deride. Moro is not Moro, it was said at the time.
The press almost unanimously bombarded public opinion by disowning his words, while Moro voiced his outrage at this further cruel form of torture.
Forty years on, the destiny of these writings has changed little. Very few have actually read them, many have chosen to forget.
Yet the bodies that we are unable to bury properly regularly return to make their voices heard. The letters and memorial are now two ghostly presences, and Moro’s body is the spectre that still occupies the stage of our shadowed history.
After having worked on the public and private writings of Carlo Emilio Gadda and Pier Paolo Pasolini, creating two harrowing and biting plays and creating a heart-rending "anti" biography of a nation, Fabrizio Gifuni, through a painful and relentless exercise in writing, takes on the most scabrous and stark writings in the history of Italy.
