This theatrical adaptation of Giovanni Grasso‘s novel, which won the Premio Capalbio in 2019, describes the subversive love story between an elderly Jewish businessman and a young Aryan woman in Nazi Germany in the 1930s. Their relationship develops precisely when mistrust, hostility and discrimination infiltrate German society, poisoning its civil and human fabric. Once justice, too, becomes one of the regime’s means of persecution, honesty and truth collapse and tragedy strikes. In addition to Franco Branciaroli in the leading role, the cast includes Graziano Piazza, Viola Graziosi, Franca Penone, Piergiorgio Fasolo, Alessandro Albertin, and Andrea Bonella.
