The swallow man

by Maurizio Lombardi

In the company of an extraordinary actor we will be transported into an ancient history, suspended between the flight of the swallows and the friendship of two children in the attic of a Florentine palace.

1944 very hot August, retreat of the German forces. Destroyed bridges, raped Florence, plagued by snipers. On the streets of San Frediano, silence brings death to the arm, two boys Ettore and Domenico are about to meet: Partisan the first, Cecchino the second ...

1930 Florence, a full, very hot summer, the streets are a coming and going of barrows, carts, skirts, clogs, love-making dressmakers and greengrocers to shout. In San Frediano there is a bustle, a mess of people who, between blasphemies and cyans, fill the city with life. Only in the attic of Palazzo di Via Maggio is there fresh and good, lulled by the chirping of the swallows two boys meet and collide. Ettore and Domenico.
The son of the master the first, son of the stableman the second. In love with drawing the first, suffered for the swallows the second ...

Maurizio Lombardi

He trained in the Arca Azzurra company of Ugo Chiti, in which he remained for ten years, playing the most diverse roles created by the great Tuscan playwright. It is this long apprenticeship that forms his eclecticism and his versatility as an interpreter. As per Florentine tradition, it leaves the workshop of the master Ugo Chiti to carry on his personal style: on the one hand, he begins to write his own shows (musical comedies, one-man shows and theatrical monologues); on the other hand, he began his own method of deepening and studying voice, body and mimicry, working alongside masters such as Gabriella Bartolomei and Franco di Francescantonio and later with Ivana Chubbuck, starting to work in cinema and television. His most recent works include: his interpretation of Oliver, co-star of the show The Pride , by Alexi Kaye Campbell, directed and performed by Luca Zingaretti, who achieved great success for two consecutive seasons, and sold out for three weeks at the Piccolo in Milan; and the homosexual Cardinal Mario Assente, in the series The Young Pope by Paolo Sorrentino. In the much followed miniseries The name of the rose , taken from the book of the same name by Umberto Eco, he interpreted the monk Berengario. In 2016 he was nominated for the Masks of the Italian Theater award for best supporting actor.

Giuseppe Scarpato

Neapolitan guitarist, producer and composer, he began playing guitar in the late eighties, immediately combining teaching and improvisation with intense live activity in the most important Italian clubs. His guitar style, rich in contamination, is a mixture of genres and techniques ranging from rock to jazz, from blues to country. In the 90s he founded the Hillside, a "crossover" trio that received numerous appreciations for the original sound. From the summer of 1998 to the present he joins Edoardo Bennato on all his tours as a solo electric guitar and in recent years has played the role of producer / arranger for the albums in recent years: "The ways of rock are endless", " MTV Classic Storytellers "," Ready to Sail "," Wireless Puppet 2017 ". In recent years he has produced and arranged numerous record works for young singer-songwriters on the national scene, obtaining excellent critical and public appreciation.
