Freely inspired from the novel Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell, made known to the public thanks to the film version by Victor Fleming (1939) starring Vivien Leigh, Francamente me ne infischio is an universe that fluctuates between the grotesque and pop, between the text reflection and the contemporary.
Scarlett O'Hara will be the whim and the earth, the self-centeredness and the cotton plantation, the tenacity and slavery, will be Ashley Wilkes and the Tarleton twins, will be Mammy and Rhett Butler. Because Scarlett is the embodiment of the American dream, the dream of yesterday and today's America.
What is the American dream?
A realized utopia or just an industry that produces a continuous entertainment?
Through the myth of Scarlett O'Hara, we get into the great archetypes of the twentieth century, dreams and illusions, coming from the United States, come down to us.
Twins becomes a sort of prologue to the entire work, a point of view about America which has itself the characteristics of the dream.
Shards, fragments of memories and impressions emerge from Scarlett’s mind; from the first meeting with the Tarleton twins, the show moves in that pop imaginary that nourish our own dreams, the great American dream that needs, for his conservation, also the realities of war.
Antonio Latella was born in Castellammare di Stabia in 1967. After his studies at Teatro Stabile of Torino and at the famous La Bottega Teatrale in Florence, a school directed by Vittorio Gassman, Latella took up his career as an actor (1986), which he ended in 2000.
