Rosario Tedesco e Matteo Caccia
Following in the footsteps of Goethe’s “The Italian Journey”, a new journey into the vices and virtues, the commonplaces and surprises, the geography and the people you don’t expect to meet.
“What comes to mind when I say Goethe?
In 1786 Goethe entered the Belpaese: his Journey to Italy lasted two years and changed him forever. Last spring, Rosario Tedesco, a man of theatre and travel, was commissioned by the Goethe-Institut to revisit the great German poet’s journey in a contemporary key. In his journey he met and talked about Italians and Italy today. This was done through a multimedia travel diary in which the words of the blog alternated with tweets, videos, sounds and images.
Rosario Tedesco now recounts his surprising experience on stage, and does so in a game of uprooting our preconceived ideas, even about ourselves.
