Un estremo atto d'amore is a radio play based on In nome del popolo italiano. Storia di una malavita, Claudio Foschini’s diary. 

The work draws inspiration from the many points of contact between Claudio’s life and Greek tragedy: it interweaves his life of crime, his moral conflicts between will and desire, with Sophocles' Antigone. Foschini's frank, lucid and shrewd language is contrasted with the courtly but concise tone of a chorus, a portrait of all of us, spectators of stories out of time - and last judges, today as then.


This work was made possible thanks to the LUCIA Award, a collaboration between Radio Papesse, LUCIA Festival and the Fondazione Archivio Diaristico Nazionale di Pieve Santo Stefano.
