Mauro Pescio (IT)
In a focus where the shows tell about financial/mathematical mechanisms, related to money, we thought of a show that touches more the human aspect and tells about lived lives. And it is in this perspective that we host My cousin (Limited edition) by Mauro Pescio who, in his own way, has conducted a sort of sociological survey that tells about our daily lives.
In this show Mauro Pescio will introduce us to real life stories of people he met. He chose narratives that were capable of challenging our expectations of the world. A boy who experienced video poker addiction, a former porn star, a high school girl who survived the 2018 Valentine’s Day massacre on a Florida campus, a son of a policeman killed by the Br, a couple in crisis for futile reasons. In other words, he sought out true stories that seemed fictional.
He put no limits on the topics: the stories can be about big events or small things, tragic or comic situations, in short, any life experience that can give us an original and meaningful point of view of reality. Letting himself be guided by the conviction that the more we try to understand the world, the more elusive and deceptive the world becomes, and that only in the experiences of human beings we can go looking for some kind of answer capable of containing a kernel of truth.
