Oltremanica - Overseas by Stefano Panzeri

We are delighted to present Oltremanica - Overseas, one-man show performed by Italian actor Stefano Panzeri at The Crescent Arts Centre in Belfast. 

Oltremanica – Overseas is based on Terra Matta, the autobiography of a Sicilian man named Vincenzo Rabito. Vincenzo was born in 1899and was a member of a heroic generation for Italy, being the youngest to fight and win the First World War.

Despite being almost illiterate, Vincenzo decided to write the story of his life. Between 1968 and 1976 he wrote 1027 pages relating to his life, the main events of Italian and European 20th Century, the First World War, Fascism, the Second World War, Reconstruction and The Economic Boom of the Late 50's and 60's. This is a historical portrait of Europe through the unique point of view of an everyday man, who, through the process of chronicling his life became an unconscious hero!

Vicenzo’s story is a universal metaphor of the ultimate meaning of migration: the search of happiness narrated by Stefano Panzeri in the first part of the show works as a perfect catalyst in the second part to help listeners unearth their own stories and celebrate them through theatre: some of the spectators’ stories will become part of a second show, that will hopefully come back to Belfast in 2018.

Please, note that the first part of the show will be in Italian, while the second will be both in English and in Italian, depending on the audience’s stories.
