Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


[Autom. eng. transl.] A choral and out-of-canon book that weaves different narratives in different shades: a maternal voice, a philosophical and a theatrical one that all together offer an articulated reflection on the constitutive dimensions of human life that are outlined in the experience of being generated and generating , of being, that is, men, human persons. A work of writing marked first of all by a female voice, that of Caria Cariboni, who, through a maternal diary, tells the story of her son Francesco, the "fragile" love, which acts as a red thread to the other corifei texts: a reflection philosophical about the meaning of coming to the world, proposed by Adriano Pessina, an essay on Education to Theatricality and a dramaturgical transposition written by Gaetano Oliva. Theatrical Education, through narration and scenic actions, allows you to experience new identities and if identity is also the form that the world attributes to each individual, the theater allows you to remove one skin and wear another, for a limited time, the time of representation. Theatrical Education allows anyone, even the person who is experiencing discomfort, to give shape and voice to their feelings and their "gaps", to their own wounds, through the simple and poetic flow of narration. Here is the simple way to tell and shape lived experiences is a natural way to acquire awareness, to re-elaborate a painful event with one's own rhythms and times, or to have one's own "other" life perhaps easier to accept and to manifest than that which really belongs. The set of these scriptures thus provides a method for returning to reflecting and projecting about the human condition and constitutes a contribution to those involved, or different titles, in the field of education and education.
