Two men, a Christian Westerner and a Muslim Arab, find themselves in the same tent set up following an earthquake.
This is where the actor, director and playwright Saverio La Ruina starts for his show "Mario e Saleh", scheduled for Friday 24 September at the Teatro Studio Mila Pieralli in Scandicci (Florence - 9 pm), as part of the Avamposti Teatro Festival organized from the Women's Theater.
On stage Ruina himself and the actor Chadli Aloui, born in Palermo of Tunisian parents. Far from any commonplace, “Mario and Saleh” is an intimate and contemporary fresco of diversity.

The relationship between the two evolves between differences and acknowledgments. External events and concrete facts overturn the perceptions they have of each other. The certainties that seem to make their way are continually redefined in the light of what happens between them, surprising them first.

More than going into religious disputes, the show focuses on everyday facts through which to measure possible conciliations and oppositions. In addition to the inevitable differences, which can find pacification, events break out from the outside that break the balance between the two, gradually redefining their acquisitions, in a continuous displacement of their certainties.
By meeting Muslims, migrants and non-migrants, worlds open up within a larger world where many Islams chase each other, differ and even oppose each other.
A subject that requires a delicate approach, given that it warms souls with a virulence that leaves us dumbfounded and sometimes powerless.

The evening takes place in compliance with anti-Covid regulations, it is necessary to present the Green Pass and a document at the entrance.
