"Giù" (Down) is an angry invitation to break the silence to give
voice to others.
It is a shout against the rot of our society that demeans the
dignity and freedom of the individual.
In a surreal atmosphere, where the drama is in continuous
equilibrium with the comedy, the Son, one morning, under the
watchful eye of the Father, comes out of the bog and convey to
their discomfort against a world increasingly saturated with
selfishness and indifference .The father sees his son in the
toilet, and try to pull it off. But in the bog, there is not
only the Son to pull off. There is also Don Carlo, a difficult
priest, which ended down because he no longer wanted to be
comfortable. Down there is also the Sacristan that after so many
years of abuse and violence, tired of suffering, is in that bog
that find the strength and the courage to rebel. Down there is
also, the poor devil of Ugo, who prefers to sing under a bridge
not to lose dignity ... not to sell his dignity. Down there are
many people who, to defend human values and struggle against the
evil that advances, they are still waiting for their turn to go
on … to return again on.
The piece won the UBU prize 2012 – Best Scenery and the
nomination for Best Italian Piece of the year.
