“PAGE FORTY” Co-produced   by   the   Arbor   Foundation,   ‘Page   Forty’   recounts   the story   of   Fiamma,   a   psychologist   in   a   Hospice,   who   discovers   that she   has   a   Pancreatic   tumor   that   leaves   her   only   forty   days   left   to live. It   starts   as   a   countdown   retold   in   first-person   by   Fiamma   and Miriam,   a   doctor   at   the   hospice,   who   finds   herself   unwillingly,   for strange   reasons,   accompanying   her   colleague   and   friend   until   her death.
“STROKE OF MILAN” The   falling   of   the   cathedral,   the   heart   and   symbol   of   the   city,   is the    trigger    that    unleashes    a    recovery    of    the    original    spirit    of Milan,   traceable   in   the   whole   of   its   story   from   the   foundation   to nowadays.   “Stroke   of   Milan”,   a   poetic-musical   show   written   and performed   by   Dome   Bulfaro   and   directed   by   Enrico   Roveris,   is not   only   new   but   also   highly   original:   it   unites   the   western   Judo- Christian   culture   with   harmonic   singing   –   by   Lorenzo   Pierobon   an   eastern   yoga   discipline   that   allows   the   tuning   of   the   person with   the   energy   of   the   sound;   it   also   unites   the   cross-over   music, both   historical   and   sensational,   of   Massimiliano   Varotto   and   his percussion   ensemble   “Danno   Compound”,   with   simple,   popular music of the Milanese singer Francesco Marelli.

“THE TRAGEDY OF THE GRAND INQUISITOR” The    Tragedy    of    the    Grand    Inquisitor    forces    us    to    reflect    on freedom      and      religious      authority,      on      the      admission      of responsibility   and   on   the   possibility   of   a   change   of   heart,   which   is necessary   in   today’s   world.   It   brings   back   to   life   the   message   of Jesus,   that   places   everyone   of   us   facing   the   attack   of   the   Inquisitor that   is   pushing   us   to   believe   in   only   material   needs   that   are   only possible   via   obedience   to   authority,   cancelling   out   the   free,   joyous and vital part of being human.

“THE STREETS OF STORIES” “The   streets   of   stories”   traces   the   heritage   of   poetry,   stories,   music or   put   more   simply,   of   the   culture   that   has   united   Europe,   the Mediterranean   and   Asia   for   centuries.   On   a   musical   backdrop created   by   a   masterly   and   varied   ensemble,   two   actresses   narrate stories    that    echo    with    similarities    and    harmonies    from    the Mediterranean   to   Afghanistan   in   both   Italian   and   Persian   (with   a simultaneous translation being projected onto a screen). The   texts   that   are   read   and   sung   span   from Aesop   to   short   stories that   we   find   to   be   identical   in   Rumi   and   Boccaccio,   from   Ibn Hamdis    (the    most    representative    writer    of    the    Arabic    poetic school)    to    more    recent    and    less    well-known    writers,    such    as Ignazio Buttitta.
“IANNACCI, IL TESSA e alter duu Sciopàa” The    songs    of    Enzo    Jannacci    and    the    poems    of    Delio    Tesso, interpreted   in   an   ironic,   bare,   impassioned   style   by   “alter   duu s’ciopàa”:   the   storyteller   Francesco   Marelli   and   the   poet   Dome Bulfaro.   The   concert,   thanks   to   the   happy   match   between   Jannacci and   Tessa,   and   the   bizarre   montage   of   poems   and   songs   by   the two   Milanese   writers,   traces   the   story   of   Milan   from   the   shooting of the patriot Amatore Sciesa in 1851 until today.
