Declaration

film director

“The idea behind Spera Teresa comes from some dynamics related to the immediate post-earthquake  and the choice to put it on stage with this language immediately seemed functional to me. We worked between fiction and documentary, putting history in real contexts, always trying not to betray one or the other. This was possible also thanks to the reliability of the interpreters of this little experiment.”
