The film is all about Fantasmi (Ghosts) a multimedia performance created by Ezio Donato regarding the links between the Nobel Prize for Literature Luigi Pirandello (1867-1936) and Jacob Levi Moreno (1889-1974) the father of Psychodrama and Action Methods. "Fantasmi" began in Catania for the inauguration of the new Aula Magna of Catania's University. Here the actor Leo Gullotta plays with students of the Theatre School of Catania characters of Pirandello's dramas and tales. The workshop was concluded after ten years in Teatro Valle in Rome where Ottavio Rosati directs the psychodrama of Pierluigi Pirandello, nephew of Luigi and son of the painter Fausto Pirandello. The psychodramatic enactment elaborates traumatic episodes of Pirandello's family which inspired his masterpiece "Six Characters In Search Of An Author" and is concluded by audience’s catharsis, sharing and comments.
