Petritoli: Matteo Belli inaugurates the Borghi Maestri della Scena review at the Teatro dell’Iride

3′ of reading
– The “Borghi Maestri della Scena” review begins on November 19 with the show “Genti Intendete questo Sermone”, medieval and modern jester monologues presented by Matteo Belli, one of the most talented Italian actors who has based his career on vocal and gestural research , with a theatrical production often as an author and solo performer.

The show that will be staged in Borghi Maestri is a lesson in no way academic, a sort of anthology of medieval and modern Italian jester textspresented with that histrionic energy and that intelligent irony which are the exclusive gift of true masters.

The proposed route is an opportunity to hear and see poetic passages from the 13th and 14th centuries performed alongside absolutely exhilarating improvisations and style exercises.

They range from a long-debated classic such as “Rosa fresh aulentissima” by Ciullo or Cielo d’Alcamo who was already at the center of various disputes between critics, to the surprising linguistic games of Manoello Giudeo’s “Bisbidis”, passing through famous and beloved texts by connoisseurs such as “The birth of the villain” by Matazone da Caligano and the extraordinary and grotesque drama of the “Parody of the Passion” by Ruggieri Apugliese.

All framed by two passages written by the interpreter: a free rereading of a novella by Sacchetti and, in the end, a tribute dedicated to the ancient technique of grammelot, a language almost without recognizable words and based on the onomatopoeic technique of imitating other languages .

Matteo Belli has been on the scene for almost thirty years. It has achieved recognition throughout Europe and South America. You have acted in the most important theaters in the world. You teach vocal technique courses at the University of Bologna.
