Fabrizio Gifuni brings the letters of Aldo Moro to the Teatro della Pergola in Florence
From Tuesday, January 18 to Sunday, January 23, 2022, Con il tuo irridente silenzio is on stage
From Tuesday, January 18 to Sunday, January 23, 2022, the Teatro della Pergola in Florence will stage Con il vostro irridente silenzio, a study written, directed and interpreted by Fabrizio Gifuni on the letters from the prison and the memorial of Aldo Moro.
The show is based on the philologically updated 2019 volume of the correspondence of the then president of the Christian Democrats, Aldo Moro. Barbarically murdered by the Red Brigades after 55 days of imprisonment between March 17 and May 9, 1978, his story held Italy with bated breath, painfully divided between "treaties" and intransigents.
During his imprisonment, Moro speaks, remembers, writes, answers, interrogates, confesses, accuses and takes his leave. He multiplied his words on paper: he wrote letters, addressed family members, friends, party colleagues and representatives of the institutions; he wrote down brief testamentary dispositions. And together with the letters, he composes a long political, historical and personal text: the so-called Memorial, with the answers and considerations to the questions posed by the kidnappers.
The letters and the memorial are Moro's last words, the set of papers written during the 55 days of his imprisonment. An unstoppable river of words, which people immediately tried to stem, silence, mystify and mock. But forty years later, a deafening silence still reigns around these papers.
