The Tordinona Theater was the largest and most prestigious Roman theater of the 18th and 19th centuries. It was destroyed in 1886 to allow the construction of the imposing embankments of the Tiber and, therefore, to save the center of Rome from the continuous floods.

Opened in the early 1930s, the Nuovo Teatro Tordinona has been active ever since and has always stood out for its culturally curious and avant-garde planning for the times. The current management of the Associazione Culturale Tordinona is associated with the name of its artistic director, author, director and musician Renato Giordano, who has been directing him continuously since 1979 to the present day.

The Tordinona continuously promotes new authors with programming and reviews (remember Schegge d'autore and Evenings in Corto), as well as hosting evenings of ethnic music and Jazz.

And here we are at "The return home" ... The story is simple: there is a family. As if they were Orcs, all males. And their home is like a den. There is the old Orc, the progenitor.

And then his two sons. Then there would be another one, the one born first that long ago, without saying anything, went to America. Now he returns to the den. Return with the young wife.

The pack sniffs the young girl, she sniffs the herd, getting closer and closer. Realistic and metaphysical history at the same time. That's all.

Ah no, there is another thing: the herd speaks, it secretes words. Words seem to serve to communicate. In reality they are weapons to conquer power. Not for nothing is Pinter!
