How many details are needed to tell the story of Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio?
Francesco Niccolini and Luigi d’Elia tell in their own way another fragment of the wild nature that is so dear to them. After the White Fang, Moby Dick and Tarzan, they move away from great literature to sink into the most sublime and abysmal painting, that of Caravaggio. Caravaggio perfectly embodies the inseparable duplicity of the human being: both in his canvases in which he represents the sacredness of the themes and the humanity of the bodies through color and darkness, and in his life founded on a mixture of passions, betrayals, violence and escapes. But in all this the most important thing is the truth. Artistic truth, which means credibility, making what seems distant close. In his paintings Caravaggio seeks and finds this truth, making it concrete, visible and tangible.

Chiara Francini_Ph Fabio Lovino_low
By and with Chiara Francini
Original music performed live by Francesco Leineri
Artistic collaboration Michele Panella
Directed by Alessandro Federico
Production Infinito Teatro 
In collaboration with Argot Produzioni
With the contribution of the Tuscany Region

Forte e Chiara is a memoir, a living and revolutionary human story.
A one woman show in which Chiara Francini retraces her life, unique and yet so similar to that of many others.
With the sarcasm and sharp irony that distinguish her, Chiara talks about herself through music, personal and public events, always telling the truth, without giving discounts to anyone, first and foremost herself.

Claudia and Giulio meet in a bourgeois building.
The apartment to which they are directed is the same: they discover that they frequent the same analyst.
Two months later they became lovers and see each other clandestinely. Amanti follows their story, interspersing their meetings with dialogues with the psychotherapist, unaware of their relationship. A temporal progression made of misunderstandings, cheats, missteps and prudence, until the balance is upset.
Ivan Cotroneo, famous television and cinematographic signature, here in his long-awaited debut in theater writing and directing, gives us a comedy about love, sex, betrayal and marriage, long-term relationships and long-term adventures, the masculine and on the feminine, and ultimately on the search for happiness which always takes different paths than expected.
With the help of the two extraordinary protagonists Massimiliano Gallo and Fabrizia Sacchi, these themes take shape in a hilarious and modern story, full of tenderness and truth, as always happens in the comedy of life.

By and with Alessandro Fullin and Marco Barbieri
Production Musa Productions
Distribution Terry Chegia

The poet Marco Barbieri and the actor Alessandro Fullin meet on stage to read this surreal correspondence. In October 2015, German archaeologist Helga Kohler fortunately found 18,000 tablets in clear Roman characters during an excavation campaign near Scandicci. This is the only correspondence that has come down to us from two Roman matrons who wrote to each other for more than twenty years at the end of the 4th century. The correspondence, now known internationally as the “Kohler Correspondence”, is preserved in the Archaeological Museum of Florence in the section: Finds and Sentiments. This is the historical falsehood from which the reading of the precious letters begins: Flavia and Drusilla embroider on their friendship by telling us about a world terrorized by barbarian invasions and surprised no less by the nascent Christianity. False Epigrams and true Tragedies, tired Sibyls and enthusiastic Prophets, luminous gladiators and dark catacombs: a very distant world that becomes very current thanks to a pen, or rather a stylus, always imbued with subtle irony.
