Leonardo Lidi - La città morta
Who lives in the Dead City?
The audience, the four characters or the glorious masks from the past?
This is the question I ask myself when I analyse Gabriele D’Annunzio’s ﬁrst theatre text, a failed attempt to rewrite Tragedy passing from Iphigenia’s sacriﬁce to Cassandra’s truth.
Leonardo, a young archaeologist, seeks answers in the arid, dusty earth, deluding himself that present obsessions can be resolved by hiding in past grandeur. He digs to bring Agamemnon’s face to the surface, a face which can replace his own, a face which is wrong for the public.
