Conceived and performed by Bob Spiotto with musical accompaniment and original compositions by Herb Bradenstein, this performance is composed of literary excerpts and poetry, in both Italian and English. This powerful and unique theatrical collage pays tribute to a man who authored many books, essays and poems and became the conscience of a nation and an icon of the international human rights movement.
