Solo il tempo - composer's notes

The piece "Solo il tempo" (Only time) will be performed few days before the 25th anniversary of the two slaughters of Capaci (May 23rd 1992) and of Via D'Amelio. Two Italian tragedies that have signed the very first socio-cultural shock experienced by people of my generation (by the time of the slaughters I was a thirteen years old boy).
Twenty five years have passed since then. A long period of time during the which life has never stop evolving in all its interlacements of lights and nostalgia, hopes and disappointments.
My piece is an intimate homage to the moral testament left by free men as Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino but it also aims to be an homage to Sicily, magnificent territory cradle of criminality but also native land of all these courageous men committed to fight the racketeering and the moral corruption of certain individuals.
Through the interweave of words, sonic images and theatrical solutions, my piece recounts suggestions and nature of several protagonists of the most significant Greek tragedies, by opposing to their strength and deep sense of justice the guilty and the atrocities of the human beings condition.
Among all, the titan Prometheus, gargantuan and suffering archetype of freedom of thoughts; Oedipus, whose destiny of guilt and violence, scarred him since his origins; the legendary Heracles, symbol of human limits; the ruthless and human heroine Medea, icon of the human desire of building her own future.
However, unlike the Greek tradition, in my tragedy there will not be any divine element saving the humans. No deus ex machina (as Romans called it) will rescue men, preserving them from a catastrophic destiny. No divine element will avoid the inception of the explosive devices and the lives of the two magistrates will be lost forever.
With this piece and through the support of the Greek tragedy tradition I want to describe the tragedy of reality in which notably absence is humanity itself, in its inner meaning: the Latins called it as pietas (mercy), a feeling generated by compassion and respect for peers. No mercy will save Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino. No violence and madness will ever crumble the courage and the example of who is honest and upright. Only the time will reveal the truth.

Pasquale Corrado
