“Il tempo attorno”, by Giuliano Scarpinato



“Il tempo attorno”, by Giuliano Scarpinato

In the shadow of Italian history that extends from the Falcone / Borsellino massacres to the Andreotti trial and the state - mafia negotiations, the family story of a couple of magistrates and a son forced to grow up too quickly unfolds. History forcefully enters a house, sweeps away love, asks lives to pay a very high price. Il tempo attorno, by Giuliano Scarpinato, is inspired by the real experience of the author, of his parents Roberto Scarpinato and Teresa Principato, anti-mafia magistrates, and of the escort agents who have supported them for years. On this occasion, a mise en espace of the first study of the show will be presented, with the translation of Marie - Josè Thériault.
