Sandrone soldato


Sandrone soldato, ovvero per la più grande Italia, was written by an Italian officer between 1917 and 1918 in a prison camp in Germany, considering the anti-militarist content and the thematic co-pataneity of the comedy FèMa Teatro decided to stage it.

To the original dramaturgical structure

Given the non purely commercial subject and the difficulties in raising economic resources from public bodies, FèMa Teatro decided to self-finance itself through its own funds, with the support of the Ass. Mirni Most (a bridge to peace) and through an online fundraiser.

The show

Sandrone soldato


per la più grande Italia

Di Angelo Ruozi Incerti

A show of puppets and table puppets aimed at a public of young people and adults on the atrocity of war, great business for a few and great tragedy for all, and the need for brotherhood.
A puppet script written by Angelo Ruozi Incerti, an officer of the Royal Army who left for the front, after Kobarid was taken prisoner and led to Cellelager near Hanover in Germany. There, a century ago, the script was written and represented and still today is ruthless criticism against the powerful, appeal to brotherhood.

To bring back to the stage SANDRONE SOLDATO through puppets, as happened a century ago among prisoners of Celle, means to rediscover the frank and popular tone of this story, to bring it closer to the people, to propose again the gap between the farmer Sandrone and the masters and generals who sent it to the front for their interests and their career. Sandrone would recognize, in addition to his fellow woe evoked in the text and lost in the war, the brother who is in the opposite trench, but as he sent to die at the front. It is now, as it was yesterday, a war between the poor, while the rich are rubbing their hands and not only.

Our 're-edition' of SANDRONE SOLDATO adds to the original, to which we have tried to be faithful within the necessity of 'present' puppets, a parallel and intertwined narrative to the story of SANDRONE SOLDATO.

 The burden of telling the life of Ruozi in the lager and opening a hole in the captivity, but also telling about humanity that resists horror thanks to intelligence, critical ability and art, is on the table puppets.

SANDRONE SOLDATO is not a museum operation but a new proposal by FéMATeatro that continues its path as a theatre of figures that tells in its own way about history and cultivates memory.

The project

The project aims to prepare and represent the script of the farce in two acts for puppets "Sandrone Soldato" or "For the largest Italy", written in the prison camps of Rastatt and Celle (Germany) in 1917-18 by Angelo Ruozi, official uncertain officer of the Italian Army; It was then transcribed to Cellelager (Hannover) in a notebook by his friend friend Giuseppe Denti. The text was written in extreme human situations: after the defeat of Caporetto and in the condition of imprisonment first in Friederichfeste-Rastatt and then in Cellelager and expresses the understanding of the futility and cruelty of war. But it is also a text that through the simplicity of puppets is denounced by those responsible for the First Great Massacre World.  The mask of Sandrone, a character of the people and land of Emilia, is entrusted with the task of incarnating the last, always oppressed and defeated. He is surrounded on stage by a cast of characters dedicated to war for exaltation, career, gain, and above all characterized by deep inhumanity. They are named Cadorna, Diaz, D'Annunzio and the Afforested, or rather the master who is far from the trench and benefits from the conflict. The light of peace is precisely in the encounter with the enemy, Austro. The two recognize themselves divided by the uniforms, but united by their condition as meat for slaughter, as proletarians in arms against each other for the splendor and riches of a few others who command them. Worthy of note is the use of the word as a weapon first of all of class conflict: on the one hand the daily and dialectal speaking of Sandrone and the essentiality of the reasons for life of Austro (which makes the enemy like us) that go to the heart of the matter: the right to peace and a decent life. On the other hand, the talk is always scented in the scent of deceit or mellifluously violent of those who are above them.  The rapid succession of characters and situations allows you to enter this story, through all its pain, but with the ability that was just the author to give a tragic lightness to the drama. It is a text of denunciation and peace that was staged in the prison camp 100 years ago. The depth of the theme and words in the script and the story of its author's Uncertain Roles intrigued us. More. It has called us from a long time ago to stage a story that is in our strings of citizens and artists and puppeteers. A spectacle against war, a story for world peace.

The staging of Sandrone Soldato will be, as a tribute to the author Ruozi and the victims of all wars and recognition to those who work daily to ensure that these tragedies no longer occur, as was 100 years ago, made with puppets. We will try to stick as closely as possible to the text, but since our intention is not 'museum', it will be a show today, with 'technical' and artistic contributions that could not be made at that time and with the currentity of voices and variations on the text that the world of puppets, live entertainment and in relation to the public, requires.

We also included, compared to the original, the development of a story that travels in parallel to the war story of Sandrone. It is the puppet that 'incarnates' Ruozi and his life in the concentration camp, his ability, in that condition, to save himself, like other fellow prisoners, thanks to art, intelligence and conscience. This brings the show to address an audience of young people and adults, and with them to remember and reflect on what was and unfortunately still is. Historia magistra vitae...but often humankind is a very distracted student, repeating the errors and horrors of the past.

For all of this we ask for support for the creation of Sandrone Soldato-Per la più grande Italia, in these difficult times, that when you want to say something, it is often difficult to say it concretely.
