A remarkable photographic exercise on the stage by Maurizio Buscarino. The three interpretations of King Lear are so different and so spectacular as to surprise even the least attentive spectator.
The volume is the result of a cultural project which involved the staging of the play by William Shakespeare, performed by young detainees at three different youth detention centers in Italy (Milan, Bologna and Palermo). The story of King Lear was chosen because of the subject of family tragedy, something which many young people, inside and outside prison, are familiar with. The project was carried out by Massimo Marino, the well-known playwright and theater critic, Roberto Mutti, the critic and photographer, and Maurizio and Federico Buscarino, the father-and-son team who were responsible for the photography on stage.
