abstract

Historical figures, like Marco Bragadin, and literary creatures taken from ancient and modern repertory – Ulysses, Glauco, Getrud and Ophelia (from Hamlet), St. Ursula (from Carpaccio) and Margherite Gauthier (from Traviata) – meet in a talk show. They should talk to each other, but in fact they tend to a monologue haunted by their own painful experience. Obviously they are eliminated by the appreciation of the public, due to a low share. In the meanwhile, out of the room dropping bombs, which allude to an imminent war, are felt.
