Voices in the Desert

Born from an idea by Italian author Marco Melloni (winner of the Pier Paolo Pasolini Award 2013, Rome, Italy), Voices in the Desert (Voci nel Deserto) is a project that aims to collect fragments of thinking from the past (from literature, theater, and public speeches) in order to Recycle Memory.

A concert of voices from the past, made in several languages, to recycle memory and understand that what it’s true now, was true and important decades as well as centuries ago.

The Mandrake Root

The Mandrake Root (La Mandragola) is a satirical play by the author of The Prince, Niccolò Machiavelli.
Although the five-act comedy was published in 1524 and first performed in the carnival season of 1526, Machiavelli likely wrote The Mandrake Root in 1518 to be performed at the wedding of Duke Lorenzo de’ Medici and Maddalena de la Tour d’Auvregne.
