THE LAST SUMMER. Falcone e Borsellino thirty years later
1992 was a dramatic and crucial year, which changed the history of Italy forever. Falcone and Borsellino were killed: their murder changed the history of Italy forever.
‘The Last Summer. Falcone e Borsellino 30 years later’ (text by Claudio Fava, direction by Chiara Callegari) retraces the last months of life of the two Palermo anti-mafia judges: known and less known facts, public and intimate, telling the story of those two extraordinary men, of their humanity, their strength and their deep sense of the State. But also their joy, irony, anger
The Last Summer is a delicate mosaic of events ironic and bitter, public and intimate moments. Far from rituals and mythologies, the two protagonists question themselves and tell their stories, confronting each other and with the viewers, leading them to relive fundamental moments of their friendship, as well as the history of this country. It starts at the end. From their deaths.
The Italian Institute of Culture and the Michael Cacoyannis Foundation bring the show to the stage on Tuesday, May 17th at 9:00pm. Far from the celebrations, we want to tell the story of Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino in the most authentic and daily dimension, which takes nothing away from the meaning of their battle, but completes them as human beings.
