Title:Johan Padan a la descoverta de le Americhe
Genre: Teatro Satire
Screenplay and Director: Dario Fo
Dario Fo, one of the leading figures in modern farce and political drama, was born in 1926 in the village of Sangiano (Varese) in Lombardy, where while still young he came into contact with popular theatrical and narrative traditions (his grandfather was a well-known fabulatore). After studying art and architecture in Milan, Fo took part in radio programmes with a series of monologues Poer Nano ("Poor Dwarf"), made his debut as an actor in 1952 (Teatro Odeon, Milan), and in the same year began to write satirical cabarets and to act at the Piccolo Theatre. In 1954 he married the actress Franca Rame. In 1959 the couple founded their own company, in which Franca Rame was the leading lady and Fo the writer, producer, mime and actor. He achieved international fame in 1960 with Gli arcangeli non giocano a flipper ("Archangels Don't Play Pinball"). In 1968 with left-wing support (ARCI/PCI) he founded the theatre co-operative "Nuova Scena", soon wound up because of ideological controversy. In 1970 Fo parted company with the Communist Party and the couple founded the theatre collective "La Comune". After having occupied Palazzina Liberty in Milan, the company was given a permanent theatre, which opened in 1974 with the success We Can't Pay We Won't Pay!. Fo's opposition to conformism, the courage of his convictions, and his political and social commitment, have involved him in numerous court cases and controversies with the Italian state, the police, the censors, television (the "scandal programme" Canzonissima) and the Vatican (according to the Pope, Mistero Buffo had "desecrated Italian religious feelings"). In 1980 Fo was refused an entry visa for a performance in the USA because of his membership in "Soccorso Rosso", an organisation supporting prison inmates. Together with Rame, Fo has written a number of monologues (for instance Tutta casa, letto e chiesa, "All Home, Bed and Church") inspired by the struggle of Italy's women for the right to divorce and legal abortion. His collected plays include 70 or so works. In 1981 Fo was awarded the Sonning Prize.
