Episodes with Barone Rampante (Baron of the trees) written by Italo Calvino
Reading episodes of Barone Rampante in the magnific landscapes of the city park , among her secular trees. Every evening at 18.30 ten excellent actors tell, day after day, the stories of Cosimo, the young baron that in June 25 th 1767, after a banal quarrel with his father, jump on a tree, climbs among the branches, he passes from a plant to anothe one, and finally he decides that he won’t go down anymore.
An evocative and symbolic narration, rich of obstacles and of meetings, of memorable characters, romantic and passionate loves, comic stories.
From Lella Costa to David Riondino, from Franco Branciaroli to Peppe Servillo, from Arianna Scommegna to Giole Dix the interpreters bring in life a world made of awakenings, of smells and noises that have the suggestive strength of nature. There will be also young actors of the Teatro Piccolo di Milano, who will realize, with their acting this fantastic and poetic world, written by Calvino, a master of narration of imaginary, shiny, real and actual universe.
