«Right as we are writing these lyrics and music, a war is being waged close to home, closer than any other war. This could induce aphasia, as if no voice can be raised other than the voice of violence between States and interest groups.» Yet, the authors feel a strong urge to make their own statement on this subject in the language of the stage, without straying too far from their initial inspiration, Pasolini’s Divine Mimesis. A reinterpretation of Dante’s Comedy,Pasolini’s work offered a searing critique of Italian society in the 1960s and 1970s, or, as the author said, it «pitted the medieval Hell, with its old punishments, against a neo-capitalist Hell». This suggestion now becomes the starting point for an original text conceived to complement the score of the Frammenti Infernali, which proceeds by apparitions, suggesting a personal journey with an eye to the present.
