A group of men and women, from an undefined time and place are summoned by an unknown man, a Dantesque Charon, to a mysterious appointment. He asks them to take a voyage. Where the destination is, or why they should leave, he doesn’t say.
Their country, like many others, was experiencing a huge crisis; all that they and their ancestors had created until now, such as the certain- ties of social structures and wealth, it was as though everything had crumbled, failed and collapsed.
It has been years since anyone asked what had caused this mysteri- ous disturbance, what went wrong and who was to blame. In the end they got used to it, accepting the continuing state of crisis as permanent and inevitable.
It was distress, a necessity for beauty, curiosity and a desire for a new utopia that had made the group so restless that when given the chance of this voyage, it was embraced immediately as an opportunity. Their only obligation before undertaking the voyage was to discard all that they had been, until the moment of departure and to leave it all behind. During their journey on their way towards the unknown destination they would stop every now and then, and perform to the people telling a story of life, hoping that their mistakes would not be repeated.
No one would ever know what happened to that group of people who were “exposed to all” who were charged by an ideal, a dream! Legend has it that they formed a new community, others say that they have seen them still travelling and performing...always gathering more and more people... for that new world.
Collecting information and material from the street, from politics, from newspapers, from global economics to the economy of house- wives and from our hearts, we narrate slices of life, of a Dantesque voy- age, we tell the story of everyday life.
Set in the “day after” our days, in a tomorrow closer than today.

Tomaso, started in 1987 working as an actor for movie, theatre and television productions.

In 2008 he inaugu- rated and directed the new Teatro Cassia in Rome up to 2010.
