Circhio Lume

Three faded clowns, in a delirious and funny circus, are gambling everything to gain the centre of attention.
From a look at the mechanisms man puts into action to make people love him‚ to be the centre of attention‚ one enters with lightness and detachment the tragedies everybody lives‚ showing the pretexts and the lies created by the not understood victim.
A not narrative but a circular writing‚ which uses a language hovering between the tragic and the grotesque‚ a bit exaggerated and clownish.
