(ANSA) – NAPLES, 21 SEPT – The first preview of the season of Trianon Viviani in Naples, artistically directed by Marisa Laurito, is scheduled for Friday 23 September, at 9 pm; Nello Mascia will present the third chapter of his special project Viviani per strada, namely the two unique acts ‘O cafè’ e notte e ghiuorno (“Coffee at night and day”) and ‘Nterr’ ‘a’ Mmaculatella (“Maritime port”) , which the playwright from Stabia wrote in 1919 and 1918 respectively (the production is by Trianon Viviani).
‘O cafè’ e notte e ghiuorno is a one-off act set on a cold winter night in Don Alfonso’s “third-rate coffee”. For Mascia “the atmosphere you breathe there is an icy night, which belies the rhetoric of a city drunk with the sun, with the characters living their existential tragedy with all the skepticism, imagination and self-irony of which it is capable. the Neapolitan people: we laugh at the crazy writer who recites aloud the improbable script he is composing; we laugh at the unlucky player, the negligent and vulgar waiter and even the little family of the unemployed worker who decided to spend the night in the cafe because he no longer has a house that can house it “.
‘Nterr’ ‘in’ Mmaculatella: at the dock of the Immacolatella, the ‘transitrancheto’ Washington, with its load of emigrants, is about to set sail for Argentina. In this unique act Viviani faces the drama of emigration, made more dramatic by the economic and social crisis originated by the war, focusing on four groups of characters: emigrants, poor peasants who have paid dearly for their travel ticket, overwhelmed by speculators of every ream, beautiful energies forced to disperse in the world; first-class passengers, against whom the author’s mockery is ruthless; “Those who remain”, because they are forced; and the underclass of the people of the port.With Nello Mascia himself, who also signs the direction, and the participation of Giovanni Mauriello, in the two shows will be staged Federica Aiello, Francesco Bellopede, Peppe Celentano, Francesco Del Gaudio, Angela De Matteo, Bianca De Matteo, Massimo De Matteo, Antonio Fiorillo, Roberto Giordano, Antonio Maria Iorio, Pierluigi Iorio, Matteo Mauriello, Ciccio Merolla, Maurizio Murano, Giuseppe Pirozzi, Serena Pisa, Ivano Schiavi and Federica Totaro.
