sad page of Italian history
27 November 2004 | by (usually barcelona) – See all my reviews

translation of Dario Fo's work of the early seventies. the anarchist was Pinelli, accused of bombing a bank (17 deads). He was innocent. The slaughter was organized by a deviate part of Italian secret services, as proved 20 years later. there's an Italian version with the unique play of Dario Fo, somewhere in the net. in 1971 Dario Fo wrote this piece, and started a long tour through the country. Italian government and secret services tried to stop the show legally, with denunciations, trials. It did non work, so they tried illegally: bombs in the theatre, physical aggression to the actors.It did not work, so here you have the sadly funny story of the accidental death of an anarchist. enjoy
