E te, beltade ignota – A short play on Fiction and Realism / Giacomo Pala

07 13th, 2020

This text looks at the connections between Victorien Sardou’s/Giacomo Puccini’s “Tosca” and Giovanni Battista Piranesi’s “Campo Marzio dell’Antica Roma”. Apparently opposites – the former is “realist”, the latter is “surreal” – they are used to discuss how what we define as the real is deeply entangled with fiction and the unreal.
