Rome, the Fosse Ardeatine Massacre. Memory
The monologue that launched Ascanio Celestini’s career has enjoyed twenty years of acclaim. The account of the Nazi massacre at the Fosse Ardeatine, the chronicle of what happened on 24 March 1944 when a reprisal claimed 335 innocent lives. Not merely a story of war and bloodshed, but the opportunity to gain an understanding of the facts and places that have become part of our history.
