To reveal this enigma Fo investigated the work of the brilliant artist, bringing to light surprising insights. The starting point of the show is the enigma that for over seven centuries has divided art criticism: it was Giotto who frescoed the famous Stories of St. Francis in the Upper Basilica of Assisi
To answer the fascinating question, Fo embarks on an exploration that starts from Assisi, touches Padua with the analysis of the Scrovegni Chapel and reaches the last masterpieces of Santa Croce in Florence. An investigation that surprises many and sheds light on aspects of Giotto’s life and art little explored by official art criticism: from the painter’s activity as a usurer to the secret influences of the apocryphal Gospels on his work. A journey made even more evocative by the tales, the dialogues in the vernacular and the “jesters” that embellish the text, accompanied by over two hundred illustrations including color reproductions of Giotto’s works and personal creations of the Nobel Prize.
