dialogue on poetry and love in
“I Corteggiatori”; a dialogue/
soliloquy on work safety in
“Raep”; and a dialogue between
two young Italians who find
themselves living NewYork for
the first time in “Neighbors.”
AcademyAwardWinner Iaia
Forte, lead actress in “The Great
Bauty”, will star in “Hanno tutti
ragione”, based on the novel
by Paolo Sorrentino, director of
this year’s Best Foreign Film.
The readings are also very
exciting: “Santos”, from a story
written by Roberto Saviano,
author of “Gomorrah”; “Fallaci,
aWomanAgainst” by Emilia
Costantini about the famous
Italian journalist and personality;
and “Story of Love and Soccer”
by Michele Santeramo about
immigration in the South.

What we are presenting
constitutes a very small
percentage of the proposals we
received from Italian theater
companies, and we are able to
accommodate these artists only
because somany locations opened
their doors to the Italians.The
Festival has doubled its duration!
Early this year, with theYoungKIT,
we staged “The Mandrake Root”
and “The Decameron”. It was a
success.The audience loved it
and demandedmore.And that
means only one thing: the love
story never ended. It’s not true
that Italian theater cannot be
understood by non-Italians. It’s
not true that different languages
or traditions are obstacles.The
audience coming to our shows is
the answer.The happy faces filling
