Upcoming online event 'Alla fine ogni muro cade': reading show and interactive debate

Posted on 19 May 2020

After the great success of last year’s event "Alla Fine Ogni Muro Cade" organized jointly with the HAEU at Le Murate Caffè Letterario, the Deutsches Institut Florenz organizes a replica of the show, complemented with an interactive debate, which will take place online on the ZOOM platform this Friday evening, 22 May, starting at 8.30 PM.

The show consists in a reading by two actors of Laura Forti’s original text “Alla fine ogni muro cade”. It is inspired from the real story of a German married couple who build their family in Berlin before it got divided by the Berlin wall. When a choice had to be made, the couple was divided, each choosing a different side of the Wall, due to their different political visions, ideals, and ambitions.

In this real-life inspired show, the actors Laura Cioni and Paolo Spennato interpret this human story of two people separated by a wall and by political ideology. At the end of the performance, the playwright together with the protagonists will engage in a debate with the public on the theme of love at a distance, as well as on the many walls that have been created between people in recent times as consequence of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The upcoming event is taking place in the framework of the project "Die Europäer sprechen miteinander" organized by the Deutsches Institut Florenz in collaboration with the Erding Volkshochschule. It is a follow-up to the successful event "Alla Fine Ogni Muro Cade" organized in 2019 jointly by the Historical Archives of the European Union, the Deutsches Institut Florenz, Europe Direct Firenze and Le Murate Caffè Letterario, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. The event started with the reading show and was followed by an Italian-German jazz jam session with Anke Helfrich (piano), Claudio Sbrolli (drums), Arne Huber (double-bass) and Giovanni Pecchioli (sax).

All conferences organized by the Deutsches Institut Florenz are moved temporarily on the ZOOM platform. To request information on how to connect and register to the event, simply write an email to: [email protected]
