Roman letters

An exhilarating evening starring Alessandro Fullin, who along with Marco Barbieri traces the epistolary of two Roman women of the fourth century .

A The Workshop Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 January.

A terracotta epistolary of two middle-aged matrons surprises from the fifth century: this is "Roman Letters", the exhilarating performance of Alessandro Fullin and Marco Barbieri, who for the occasion meet on the stage to read a surreal correspondence.

Found in October 2015 during an excavation campaign near Scandicci by the German archaeologist Helga Kohler, the 18,000 tablets in clear Roman characters represent the epistolary exchange of two Roman matrons who wrote for more than twenty years at the end of IV century. The correspondence, now internationally known as the "Carteggio Kohler", is kept at the Archaeological Museum of Florence in the section "Findings and Feelings".

This is the historical fake from which the reading of the precious letters starts: Flavia and Drusilla trace their friendship on the background of a world terrorized by barbarian invasions and surprised no less by the nascent Christianity.

A world far away but at the same time current, populated with false epigrams and true tragedies, tired sibyls and enthusiastic prophets, luminous gladiators and obscure catacombs, dashed by a stylus always imbued with subtle irony.

At the end of the evening it will be possible to participate in a " guided tour" by Alessandro Fullin at the exhibition of his paintings Vampires , which will be set up for the occasion in the spaces of Il Lavoratorio.

Where: The Workshop - Via Giovanni Lanza 64 / A 50136 Florence

When: Saturday 13 January at 21 and Sunday 14 January at 17
