In this journey love is always born. It all stems from a feeling of ‘falling in love’. The unpublished songs and the arrangements are the path engine. There is no history if there is no root. There is no love without a history, without a search without a return. Roots of Love is our little oracle, the secret treasure trove where to put joys of moments, fragments of life and dreams that keep us alive. The direction is circular. As a thought that leaves and returns to where it started. As an experience that is built step by step, with bricks of pain and joy of the blood and sweat of life “.

Edited by Altamarea Admission 10 euro Info and bookings: 3393113514 States theatrical “PAN FOCUS is the film method in which Orson Welles turned Citizen Kane (Kane). Also called deep focus this system allows you to focus on characters simultaneously in different floors: the first floor, the intermediate, to the bottom. So that the viewer can choose, beyond the arbitrary assembly, the plan or the characters to follow. An expanded focus (Pan) to the fullest extent. Our ‘focus’ is the woman we want to talk through the absolute variety of themes and stories, genres and arts, through the complexity, contradictions and multiplicity in it congenial. We can sing, tell it, danzarla, recite it, witness it. Even men can invent provided by reversing what has always been one of the cornerstones of history: the male point of view. St. James’s Palace – Piazza Municipio 80133 Naples (Italy) tel (+39) 081 7954101 Fax (+39) 081 7954104 – ​​ Department of Culture and Tourism Culture • Tourism • Libraries and archives what is the male point of view we are given to know precisely: no revisionist historian could refute that always we are immersed in a world ‘maschiocentrico’ and this has not brought much good. The point of view ‘femminocentrico’ I do not know because we have not a world dominated by women but it was only for the healthy function of the dialectic I believe it is essential to go in this direction. (…) From the ‘Pan Focus’ we choose the subjects, whether they are prominent as famous women, important, or the top floor that is unknown and that on the world stage count for little or nothing and yet here, in this our important scene and fire as and perhaps more raw. Whether outputs from the folds of a story of civil theater as a verse of Dante, from a popular song as Shakespeare as the memory of a witness of a true story. But what this ‘focus – format’ regular meetings every time a different shape (this will have a form of happening but always from the content ‘femminocentrico’) -, we would like to become a walk of various arts where you will seize those differences, those scraps , the clashes between one sex and the other, and where the historical one, the old one, that still winning ‘worldview’ is subverted. Pending a political and social revolution very difficult to imagine, perhaps it would be appropriate to establish some hope on that once called with too much emphasis ‘feminist revolution’ but then nothing other than the multi-focal exploration Pan Focus sensitivities other than the dominant ones.
