It is 1901 when Joseph Conrad writes "Amy Foster". Reading this sort of nightmare, the impression is that 118 years have passed in vain.

Freely inspired by the story, "Amy, the story of a shipwreck" is the show that Daniela Morozzi presents Saturday, April 13th at the Teatro Manzoni in Calenzano / Florence (9 pm - 13/10/5 euros tickets - pre-sales - info tel. 055.8877213 - ).

Yanko comes from the Carpathians and is the only survivor of a ship that has gone to the bottom of the coasts of England, with its cargo of emigrants crammed under appalling conditions.

At that time they were emigrants who wanted to reach America en masse from Eastern Europe, today they are Africans and Asians, perhaps even more hungry. but despair, scams, thefts, smugglers and shipwrecks are identical. How sadly alike are the bodies of children on the beaches and that feeling of annoyance (or do we want to call it hate?) Towards the stranger who shakes the values of the mortally fixed society in itself.

Yanko is beautiful, he knows how to work the land, milk the cows, he is religious, he learns English and even saves from certain death the granddaughter of a rich English landowner. Amy Foster, the "grulla" of the country, helps him. He falls in love with him and, against the will of everyone, marries him. Bring a child to the world.

But in the opaque community, Yanko appears as a pagan, a kind of sorcerer, perhaps a madman, most likely a demon. Certainly a foreigner. And that's enough to condemn him.

Out of foolishness, Amy Foster will save him; out of foolishness, he will let him die with his face in the mud. The story of Yanko is the story of a tenacious hope broken a thousand times, finally defeated and fallen, but which has rooted in the earth like a seed.

A violent story that happened a century ago in England, or perhaps here, here, tonight.

Written by Valerio Nardoni and Daniela Morozzi directed by Matteo Marsan, "Amy, the story of a shipwreck" is enhanced by the original music of Stefano "Cocco" Cantini, saxophonist, composer and well-known name of international jazz.
