Antonio Scurati's M. Il figlio del secolo goes on stage at the Piccolo Teatro. IULM participates in the event with a series of initiatives aimed at the city and our students.

On February 2, opens at Piccolo Teatro M Il figlio del secolo, the theatrical adaptation of the historical novel by Antonio Scurati that tells in thirty tableaux the rise of Benito Mussolini, from the foundation of the "fasci di combattimento", through the March on Rome, until the speech in Parliament on January 3, 1925 and the spread of fascism.

"It is a relay race between eighteen actors - explains Massimo Popolizio, director and performer of the show - which, far from any rhetoric, brings to the attention of the public the pressing pace of a rise to power, which occurred at a time of profound weakness of institutions and parties".
