Facts and thoughts distant from each other but united by a web of narratives, beliefs, myths and ideologies which according to the historian Yuval Noah Harari make up the very material of which history is made. Sotterraneo puts these episodes in resonance with the present, composing a personal map of the paradox made up of micro-stories, suspended moments, fatal moments of famous and unknown people.

Piccolo Teatro Grassi

Sotterraneo, the theatrical research group founded in Florence in 2005 and composed of a fixed nucleus of authors accompanied by a range of collaborators according to the various projects, returns to the Piccolo with three shows. Each work produced by the group is like a probe launched to examine the linguistic possibilities of theatre, seen both as a physical and an intellectual place, one that is both ancient and inevitably contemporary. With cross-sector and multi-layered works, Sotterraneo spans formats, focusing on the contradictions and shadows of the present though an Avant-pop approach that seeks to express our era while walking a line between the collective imagination and the most anti-conventional of ideas.
L’Angelo della Storia, the third play in the series, brings together historical anecdotes from different centuries and locations, absurd gestures that express the paradoxes of entire eras and link to the philosophy of Walter Benjamin, creating a reflection on how narrative affects the perception of reality.
