Based on the film of the same name by Ettore Scola, this theater play tells the story of Antonia and Gabriele, two lonely souls forced to be submitted to the rules of a world that has destined only humiliation and submission for them.
The genuineness of their meeting contrasts with the pomposity of the day on which the pièce is set: May 6, 1938, the date of Adolf Hitler’s historic visit to Rome. Their fleeting encounter represents a moment of rebellion and freedom in a reality that does not allow any dissonances.
Even if only for a few hours, Antonia and Gabriele manage to find themselves, thus linking their existence to a moment of confidence and intimacy, which is full of poetry.
