History of a friendship


from the novel "My brilliant friend" by Elena Ferrante

The show, divided into three chapters, (The Two Dolls, The New Name, The Lost Child), tells about two women’s friendship, following their individual growth, the way they influence each other, their sentiments, the conditions of distance and closeness nourishing their relation over the years. On the background, the community of a city/world torn by contradictions of the past, of the present, of a future whose fierce borders are not yet clearly defined.
Based on the 4-part novel The Neapolitan Novels by Elena Ferrante (also known as My Brilliant Friend, the first novel of the series).
