The play explores the threads that weave poetry and madness together. Director Giorgio Gallione, in Milvia Marigliano’s powerful performance, captures the life and work of an extraordinary woman like Alda Merini. Flanked by a group of dancers, the actress/actor recreates the dreams, memories, and loves of a poet who, through the power of her expressiveness, has become part of the collective imagination.
