Il club dei 27
Giacomo Anelli, Irene Carra, Pietro Anelli, Noa Zatta, Ettore Scarpa, Claudio Guain
27 are the operas by the greatest Italian composer of all times. In the land of melodrama there’s an exclusive 27 Club - not the Forever 27 of rockstars who died at 27, it’s simply 27 men named after Giuseppe Verdi’s operas. They introduce themselves as Traviata, Rigoletto, Giovanna D’arco etc. From the sweet wrath of these plain-dwellers everything was evolving peacefully until an eleven-year-old child came along: he’s got their uniform, their pin - he really wants to be one of them. A new miracle of the Maestro? Maybe. Or more likely, considering these people’s sinister musical inclination, as Bruno Barilli wrote, everything is carefully planned. Reality or fiction? That’s what people who stumble upon this story ask themselves. It’s a story so unbelievable it seems fabricated in every detail and so real it seems unreal when told on that silver screen which lies to tell the truth.
