Project Description

Lorena Senestro, cast as Miss Felicita, delivers a highly personal interpretation of Guido Gozzano’s famed “seldom-used sitting room”, a hundred years after his death: the stories and characters of his poems return to life to the accompaniment of Andrea Gattico, a pianist from the Torino Tabarin tradition, with his bow tie, his songs and evening dress. The typical irony of Gozzano’s poems hovers over every single word: “un senso buffo d’ovo e di gallina” (a play on the word “cocotte”, literally, “an amusing association of eggs and hens”.
