Synopsis

Romeo and Juliet is, before it is a love story, before it is the text of the great poem or the best-known play to the public that Shakespeare left behind, a'opera about desire. All the characters are driven from a burning desire as the foundation of their relationship with others and the outside world, and at the same time they are victims of it. The protagonist of this drama is the new generation, not only Romeo and Juliet, but also Benvolio, Tybalt, Rosaline and Mercutio. The oppressive system in which the youngsters are crushed is foreign to them, it is the world of adults; a world built in the past, a cage that imprisons both Montagues and Capulets, a limiting and violent system that creates new violence, in a cycle from which there is no escape.

The image of a world of only boys, confronting gigantic issues, has in it something both bleak and liberating at the same time. Thus the work finds itself in a liminal situation, between tragedy and comedy, between the performative act and the poetry of writing, between idealization and love. The relationship between the word and the body is of extreme importance in Romeo and Juliet. If in the beginning word and poetry are the characters' possibilities of expression and determine a mode of love narrative, at a later stage there is a rediscovery of corporeality that becomes totalizing. Juliet says, "What's in the name? Give up your name, Romeo, and for the name, which is no part of you, take myself." The word is deceiving, the senses instead become the way to connect with the world and thus discover its truth.

Romeo and Juliet is an attempt to bring to life the desire of the senses that in clashing with reality shatters and becomes tragedy. It is the world of young people trying to find possibility and meaning within codes and conventions that do not belong to them. It is the flame of a candle closed in a glass that keeps to wanting to burn despite the fact that the oxygen is running out and that inevitably, like the boys' story, will end up suffocating but that, until the last second, illuminates and warms the world around with its passion.

"Ugh, what a beard! Oof, what a bore!"

With this phrase the episodes of Casa Vianello, the TV sit-com starring Sandra Mondaini and Raimondo Vianello, ended; after a day peppered from with rocambolic episodes, misunderstandings, and comical quarrels, the couple wished each other good night with this phrase uttered by Mondaini, which became almost a slogan capable of entering the jargon of Italians. A phrase we now naturally associate to with something boring, repetitive; kids often use it when called upon by adults to to do something they would not like to do, such as studying. For adults, perhaps, it has instead become a kind of sentence from applied to politics, when it keeps to re-proposing to us the same scenario as always without any novelty or even hope. It is a funny phrase that helps us to downplay, to sometimes, the miseries of life, the nonsense of everyday life.


It is possible that continuing studies after a three-year academy, extending them for two more years, could be a path from dismissed with a peremptory "Ugh, what a beard!" Yet the sought-after, chosen and desired study, which further enhances our knowledge base, can truly prepare us for the test of work. Titling a two-year term "Ugh, what a beard!" is not meant to be a provocation, but a theme on which to orient two years of study, comparison and verification; two years dedicated to the theme of "beard" declined in all its variants: boredom, of course, but also the endless beards that populate theatrical or literary texts, fairy tales, the beards of real-life characters or those of the protagonists of the seventh art. An ironic phrase, then, that can accompany us by offering the possibility of investigating multiple languages and multiple worlds of artistic expression.
