Florence, April 30th 2019 - Women, work and rights : it will be "all female" proletarian " 7 minutes " written by Stefano Massini and directed by Pietro Venè , the show that will be staged after Labor Day, Thursday 2 May at 21.00 at the Teatrodante Carlo Monni of Campi Bisenzio (piazza Dante Alighieri, 23).

What can happen if an old and glorious textile company is bought by a multinational company? Starting from a fact of union reporting, Stefano Massini tells the story of 11 workers in the textile sector who are part of the works council, in charge of deciding whether the proposal made by the "ties" (the managers) is acceptable or not. It seems that layoffs are not being prepared, workers and employees can breathe a sigh of relief. But there is one small clause in the agreement that the new property wants to have signed Factory Council. Locked in a room to discuss, the eleven workers will have to decide whether to accept the seven-minute reduction of the lunch break. Seven minutes seem few, and the factory council delegate at the beginning is the only one with doubts. But little by little the debate comes on and each of the women will have to retrace their lives publicly before coming to the vote. This will be followed by a contradiction that cuts across themes of a personal, political and generational nature.
The director Pietrò Venè declares : "What better occasion to be able to represent" 7 minutes "after Labor Day? Fight or not fight? This is the dilemma! Can personal issues be combined with social ones? And what must prevail, the common good or the individual? All this and much more in this piece to drink all in one go. As timely as ever, the show is built in the style of the film "The word to the jurors" (Sidney Lumet's '57 film) and sees 11 workers, including 3 foreigners, clash, even harshly, over the decision to make, give up or less than 7 minutes, giving completely legitimate reasons. You will want to agree with all but in the end a decision must be made. "
