Oscar De Summa reads "The friar":
the powerful text of the poet Roberto Roversi on the works of Saint Francis of Assisi
written for Michelangelo Antonioni and a film that was never made.
For the first time in Florence, at Il Lavoratorio on 19th and 20th January.
Oscar De Summa brings, for the first time in Florence, "The friar" , text on the figure of St. Francis of Assisi that the poet Roberto Roversi made on commission with Tonino Guerra and Michelangelo Antonioni in view of the realization of a film that, unfortunately, it was never realized. Summa will realize this script, paying not only a tribute to Roversi, considered one of the greatest Italian poets of the twentieth century, but also a recognition of his ability to describe the figure of St. Francis in its entirety "[...] little man of the Umbrian hills and forests. Which is splendid, great, tragic like a wounded star. "(Roberto Roversi).
Oscar De Summa is an award-winning actor, author, director. Alongside the work with great directors such as Massimiliano Civica and Claudio Morganti, his own authorial and acting itinerary centered on the theater as a life story with his "Trilogia della Provincia", a fresco of the Italian province of the 80s that received national recognition of the public and of criticism.
