On January 21st, the Milanese actor Massimo Dapporto will enter the scene at the Savoia Theater in Campobasso, with Un borghese piccolo, piccolo, play based on the homonymous novel by Vincenzo Cerami, adaptation and direction by Fabrizio Coniglio, production Theater and Society / Pietro Mezzasoma.
It is a very contemporary novel, with “grotesque” colors, in which Vincenzo Cerami has described the humble aspirations of the protagonist Giovanni (the little bourgeois), that on stage becomes tragicomic. The protagonist wants to find a job for his son Mario, in the Ministry where Giovanni has been working for over thirty years. Thus begins the desperate search for a recommendation (“shortcut”), in this case represented by Freemasonry, to ensure a future for the son.
As the director Fabrizio Coniglio said:
“The short cut or the recommendation is perceived by our society as something necessary to survive: perhaps, after all, we no longer believe in the possibility of being all equal before the law and in equal opportunities for social and economic emancipation. This is the strongest issue in the story on stage, told with an ironic smile, that only great authors like Vincenzo Cerami are able to describe”.
It will be a great opportunity for everyone to admire the skill of the actor Massimo Dapporto, the first to inaugurate the saga of medical drama on TV. In fact, from 1993 to 1998 he was Dr. Magri in the famous fiction Amico mio.
Then he was the protagonist of the TV series Un prete tra noi, and he played, in 2006, Giovanni Falcone in the RAI1 produced film L’uomo che sfidò Cosa Nostra. In 2007-2008 he was the protagonist of Distretto di Polizia 7. But in his career there has been also a lot of cinema and among his most important collaborations we can mention those with Pier Francesco Pingitore, Marco Risi, Ettore Scola, Etienne Périer, Carlo Vanzina.
