TO THIS PURPOSE ONLY - World premiere
A new piece by matanicola for & with Fattoria Vittadini

"To this purpose only" is a reflection in three chapters, a triptych of a shaken and unstable nowadays Italy in which the mute ghost of the glorious past, the clichés, the ancient rituals and traditions overlap, merge and muddle in an alienating contemporaneity. Among iconographic suggestions and typical and typified characters, the work questions, denounces and subverts the stereotyped perception of southern European cultural heritage and aesthetics. An "ad hoc" unconventional vision.
