Scenes and costumes by Michele Ricciarini , assistance directed by Vanessa Tardani .

For the Last of the Year, after the show, followed by midnight toast and celebrations in Piazza Dante with the dj set by Nicola Pecci .

Characterized by fast and involving rhythms, " Il Vino di San Donnino " is a show for all tastes and full of twists and turns to greet the 2017 in joy. It brings to life, in an original way, the events of a very particular family , which recalls the comedy written by the American Joseph Kesselring in 1939, also known for the 1944 film adaptation directed by Frank Capra with Cary Grant.

We are in San Donnino, between the late nineteenth and early twentieth century: two nice aunts, seemingly innocent old, find a fun way to spend their days: "help" the unsuspecting gentlemen of a certain age who rent the rooms in their home to "leave life" with a smile on their lips. They do it with the oldest technique in the world: offering them a mixture of poisons in a good glass of wine. Their cellar becomes the burial place where to hide the corpses and then make a worthy funeral ceremony. One fine day, Felice, one of the three nephews, returns to San Donnino with good news: he finally gets married. His presence at home does not disturb his aunts, not even when he inevitably also discovers one of the corpses in the chest. Felice is not the only nephew, he has two rather bizarre brothers: Hugh the villain, who always travels in the company of the trusted doctor Pirandello and Beppe, who has always lived at home with his aunts and who believes a famous and important person history of Italy.

"It's a program all designed to have fun this year - says Emiliano Fossi, mayor of Campi Bisenzio - a family show at the Teatrodante Carlo Monni and a party in the square to continue to celebrate together: once again Campi confirms a reality inclusive and lively, with a varied offer for all ages ". From the mayor also an invitation to responsibility: "I hope - concludes Fossi - that we can celebrate together, joyfully respecting the rules, and above all without putting at risk anyone's safety, protecting themselves and the animals that live in our homes. We will not do any ordinances. A ruling by the mayor has no concrete implication. Instead, we appeal to the responsibility of citizens and respect for animals (and even humans, if you allow). Valid for illegal barrels, that is true for glass bottles, that is true for everything ".

The director Andrea Bruno Savelli explains about the adaptation: "We tried to bring the British humor to the plain , maintaining the rhythms of the English comedy but reinforcing it with the typical Tuscan touch and spirit . It is not a show in the vernacular but it is fun as if it were, we started from the idea of ​​an actualization and modernization of the typical Florentine language. The scenographies, curated by Michele Ricciarini , recreate the atmosphere of a Tuscan country house from the beginning of the 20th century. We wanted to define the scenes giving them that taste of pre-industrialized contrada when the distances still seemed insurmountable so that one of the lines inside the comedy is: My nephew works very far, even in Calenzano! ".

Starting from midnight space to music, with the festivities that will move outside, in Piazza Dante , with the performance of Nicola Pecci , who will pass from the stage of the theater to that of the square to light the party with a dj-set where will alternate songs and music, making the whole square dance. Not a concert but an outdoor party . "Two years ago it was a resounding success and we are happy to propose it again" - says Bruno Savelli .

In case of bad weather the party will move inside the theater premises.

Part of the collection on January 1 will be donated to the Popular Brotherhood of San Donnino for the construction of the new headquarters.

Tickets: December 31 single place € 40; replica of 1 January 18 € whole, reduced € 15.

The pre-sale fee is added to the cost of the ticket.
