THE RED SPRING AT THE OCA: A SHOW WITH DANIELE BIACCHESSI AND THE GANGS

What happened in Italy between 8 September 1943 and 25 April 1945?
A civil war or a war of Liberation against fascist dictatorship and German occupation.
This is the theme of The Red Spring, which will be staged at the OCA today, 29 April-

Daniele Biacchessi (journalist and writer, editor-in-chief of Radio24 - Il Sole24ore) recounts the Resistance in a book (Promo Music Corvino Editore Paperback series, distribution Messaggerie Musicali) and live through civil theatre, music, images, poetry, emotion. It is a civil oration that is the result of a ten-year study of archive documentation, judicial and historical records, books and multimedia material. It unfolds through the narration of the places where the partisans were killed and where their memory is still preserved today through gravestones and monuments, museums, historical institutes. For Milan, the testimonies of the antifascists tortured by Pietro Koch's Special Police Department in Villa Triste, by the Legione Muti and XMAs in Via Rovello are narrated.
The other stages of the narrative are Fosse Ardeatine, Sant'Anna di Stazzema, Benedicta, Fondotoce, La storta, Montesole and Marzabotto, Fivizzano, Fucecchio, Vinca, Monzuno, Via Tasso in Rome and many more.
The stories narrated by Daniele Biacchessi are enriched by those sung by Gang on the CD La rossa primavera (The Red Spring), songs from the group's repertoire and the partisan Resistance readapted in a rock key. The show is part of the Ponti di memoria (Bridges of Memory) association, which brings together the main creators of civil commitment theatre and music.
