The Last Summer - Falcone and Borsellino 30 Years Later

 

In Italian, with English surtitles.

 

A performance to mark the 30th anniversary of the Strage di Capaci and Strage di Via D'Amelio, the massacres orchestrated by the mafia in 1992 which cost the lives of prominent Sicilian antimafia judges Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino, Falcone's wife and their bodyguards.

Written by Claudio Fava

Directed by Chiara Callegari

Interpreted by Simone Luglio and Giovanni Santangelo

The play retraces the last few months in the lives of the two judges. Well known and less known events, public and private episodes, give an account of the lives of these two men, their strength, their humanity, their profound respect of the State and of the Law. But also of their joy, irony, anger and, most of all, their solitude.
