"What is the city today for us? Cities are a collection of many things: of memory, of desires, of signs of language; cities are places of exchange, but these exchanges are not just goods, they are exchanges of words, of desires, of memories "
Italo Calvino

What kind of metropolis are we creating?
Scheduled for Thursday 19 September at the Manzoni Theater in Calenzano (Florence) as part of Avamposti Teatro Festival, the show "Glimpses Of Cities", by Nicola Pianzola (author and actor) and Anna Dora Dorno (director), represents our critical vision of global society, but also the attempt to grasp its positive aspects linked to continuous movement, travel and movement.

A man, a marginalized metropolitan seller, enters the global city, trying to sell "memories", to stimulate the public to enter a parallel dimension, to reflect on what they have lost in the chaos generated by the frenetic pace of cities.

The scene is nothing but a white box, empty and visually reconstructed from time to time, through the evocation of a memory expressed in the form of a story and video that appears mapped in different formats and sizes, evoking the porthole of a ship, the jagged vision of a broken glass, the screen of a cinema, a television set and other digital and analog devices.

The work methodology used involves a long process of investigation and research, which aims to produce a high-quality international show. The show is composed, through the editing of individual performances created in the different stages in the residence, which will have their completeness but which contribute to the creation of the final work on the theme: in what kind of global city are we living? What kind of metropolis are we creating?

In this planetary journey the text, entirely written by Nicola Pianzola, deals with highly topical issues, through the experience lived by the company itself, in problematic places and with strong political tension. Thus the Korean crisis appears in the fragmentary story, expressed in the form of numbered memories, told by the elders of a village in rice fields close to Seoul, forced disappearances in Mexico and the problem of crossing borders, class contrasts in the sub- Indian continent, but also characterizing aspects of the different cultures of the world.

Stereotypes and anecdotes trace the figure of this super man, a sort of contemporary Marco Polo, a model inhabitant of the global city. Unstable Vaganti Production with the support of Mibac and Siae under the "Per Chi Crea" program.
