They are actors living their daily lives as if time were irregular, a dead time, a time of passage between playing one character to the next.
“Life is short but the day is endless” is what this time is saying, putting together the fragments of their lives. Living through the characters they play on the screen, in TV series, in small theatres in which they put themselves on the line, and mix their destinies in a city such as Rome whose streets are submerged each day by a realism which is almost surreal because of the military parades, the political anti- Bush demonstrations, up until the silence and abandonment of a post electoral evening which fires the incessant need to communicate, the necessity to play and to exist.
