The Menotti Theater brings the play by Ennio Flaiano “A Martian in Rome” from 22 to 24 June which will see the actress engaged on stage Milvia Marigliano accompanied by the trumpeter Raffaele Kohler.
Before the theatrical transposition, the work is a story published in 1954 in which the author imagines the landing of a Martian named Kunt on Earth and, to be precise, inside the gardens of Villa Borghese in Rome. The look from the outside on facts and people thus becomes an occasion for satire and criticism on the customs of post-war Italy and on the cultural dynamics of the capital.
In the show at Menotti, all the characters of the story will be staged by Milvia Marigliano, Actress graduated from the Accademia dei Filodrammatici who has worked with the greatest theater and film directors and has obtained important awards such as the Nike Teatro Napoli award and the critics’ award in 2015.
Raffaele Kohler graduated in trumpet at the G. Verdi conservatory in Milan and during the lockdown he became the protagonist of a video in which he sings “O Mia Bela Madunina” behind a railing, at the window, during a flashmob.
The show will be accompanied by two “collateral” events:
23 June at 9.15 pm: screening of the 1960 film A Martian in Rome directed by Bruno Rasia and Antonio Salines;
24 June at 18:00: Paolo Pasi, journalist and writer, interviews the astronaut Umberto Guidoni and professor Gino Ruozzi on the themes of travel and space.
