Synopsis

In 2022 he chose Spoleto to celebrate his 20-year career with the monologue Italy - Brazil 3 to 2. The Return. Now Davide Enia returns to the Festival with a self-portrait at once intimate and collective with which to confront Cosa Nostra through a process of self-analysis.

"Not wanting to understand absolutely the Mafia itself, as much as trying to understand the Mafia in me."

Resorting to the theatrical vocabulary of his Palermo - the body, singing, dialect, puppetry, acting, the cunto - Enia brings to the stage a tragedy, but also a civil oration, a confrontation with the state, a series of questions to God himself. And he does so by examining a particular case, a real watershed in the collective consciousness: the kidnapping and murder of Giuseppe di Matteo, the child son of a collaborator of justice, kidnapped, held for 778 days in captivity in appalling conditions and finally killed by strangulation and then dissolved in acid. An inhumane story that takes the form of the appearance of evil, the sacred in its declination of darkness.

"In a cultural cradle in which 'to megghiu parola è chìdda ca 'un si dice,' the best word is the unspoken one, which is configured as the first threshold of omertà, to really confront Cosa Nostra is to begin a process of self-analysis. to Palermo all of us have very few degrees of separation with Cosa Nostra. The first murdered person I saw to eight years old, returning to home from school. I knew Judge Borsellino, he lived across the street from our house, I grew up playing to soccer with his son. And Father Pino Puglisi, the priest killed by the Mafia, was my high school religion teacher."

With Autoritratto Enia digs to deep into a reality in which the Mafia represents a mirror of family life, of decision-making and operational processes, of the way of observing the world and understanding relationships, of the relationship with religion. A "collective neurosis" from to face, eviscerate and finally come to terms with.
