The text was inspired by reading the writings of Franca Pieroni, historian of Florence and Aldo Bribanti, Franca’s affectionate friend. Their deep intellectual and emotional understanding would last a lifetime, until Franca’s early death in 1985. Several letters and poems exchanged by Aldo and Franca, which appear in the theatrical text. Both were heroes of the partisan struggle for the liberation of Florence, working as Gabbians from a very young age, and it was precisely during this that their strong and supportive relationship was born: Franca, researcher of labor movements and working women, Aldo poet and revolutionary, libertarian, scientist, intolerant of dogmas and conventions . At the end of the war, they created a community of young artists and intellectuals, studied Freud, Toller and Kafka, and published new art, poetry and literature with the aim of building a new society emerging from the ruins of fascism and the Second World. war.
