The art of the story.Vinicio Marchioni – La più lunga ora. Ricordi by Dino Campana

This event is part of YAP FEST 2015
MAXXI Piazza, Spazio YAP – admittance free

Three evenings devoted to the unique emotions
aroused by the voice of an actor telling an enthralling story
and the magic of live music

The dialogue between diverse forms and expressions of art intertwines with that between contemporaneity and tradition: the oldest of the forms of art and communication, the theatre of the word, is immersed in an original dimension thanks to the music and is hosted in the installation Great Land, winner of the Young Architects Program 2015.

La più lunga ora. Ricordi by Dino Campana

Last event of the season with a text written and narrated by Vinicio Marchioni, accompanied by the music of Ruben Rigillo.

How does a man, a poet survive 14 years in a mental institution?
The only way is by telling himself the story of his life.
Reliving it so as not to forget.

La più lunga ora is the story of the life of Dino Campana, narrated in the first person by the poet himself, in the Imola psychiatric hospital where he spent the last 14 years of his life.
His family, his country, his love, the writing of the Canti Orfici. The story of the extraordinary and grotesque existence, between reality and mythology, of one of the greatest and most controversial Italian poets.
