Il Papa e la strega e altre commedie

Front Cover
Einaudi, 1994 - Drama - 300 pages
0 Reviews
Quattro commedie dedicate al mondo dei rapibili. I personaggi sono Fanfani, Agnessi, la signora Bonomi Bolchini ed il Papa. La fantasia di Fo si cimenta nell'immaginario politico-economico. Le situazioni, tutte paradossali, hanno l'andamento della commedia dell'arte, ed i testi hanno il gusto e la irriverenza del teatro dei guitti. Sprigionano umori popolareschi, ed i lazzi e le beffe hanno la morale dell'adagio: castigat ridendo mores. Il volume contiene: Fanfani rapito; Claxon trombette e pernacchi; Il ratto della Francesca; Il Papa e la Strega.
