CUBO LIVE – places, ideas, voices, events – the new series of concerts, shows and meetings promoted by CUBO, in the picturesque historical location of Villa Zarri, near the centre of Bologna, presents Radio Clandestina by Ascanio Celestini. Twenty years after its début, the show reflects on history and memory starting from one of the most tragic episodes of the Nazi occupation in Italy.
It is the story of the men buried by tons of land in the Ardeatine Caves and the women who went looking for them, the wives who worked in the 1950s and the children and grandchildren who still live to tell the story.
“This story about Ardeatine is a story that could be told in a minute or in a week." It's the story of the occupation that does not end with the liberation of Rome.
From the text by Alessandro Portelli "the order has already been executed".
