the first European festival on creativity

2012 Programme

Event #36

Marco Paolini

Of men and dogs. Dedicated to Jack London (music by Lorenzo Monguzzi)

A man, a dog, a journey, the great North are the protagonists of the new project by Marco Paolini inspired by and dedicated to the writer Jack London. Paolini will investigate his adventurous life, discuss the relationship between man and nature, ad address the current meaning of limits. In a culture that makes no limits one of its slogans, the work of Jack London deserves revisiting. This great writer never passed any judgments on nature, but constantly investigated the impact of human choices on it. A monologue in the form of a ballad, a work in progress by the popular performer Marco Paolini, who will share the stage with the guitar and the voice of Lorenzo Monguzzi.


Marco Paolini

is an author, an actor and a director. He began telling stories at Teatro Settimo in Turin, then he started producing the “Albums” as a form of long collective biography of Italy from the 1960’s to date. Paolini’s performances are often based on events of the social and political history of Italy and other countries, from Il racconto del Vajont to I-TIGI racconto per Ustica, Parlamento chimico, Il Sergente, Bhopal 2 dicembre ‘84, U 238, Miserabili. In the series Bestiari he has dealt with the changes in Italian society by the use of dialect and poetry. Paolini has a passionate interest for geographical maps, trains and journeys, and pays special attention to the changing landscape and to history, as in Il Milione. He has brought the ancient art of storytelling to large audiences and has created memorable live tv shows, including ITIS Galileo and Ausmerzen. Vite indegne di essere vissute.
