Private Project


Ezio, a newspaper advertiser, is in a relationship with two women: Irene, his wife, ironic, caring and always smiling, and Sofia, a work colleague, quiet, reserved and very sweet. Although his wife does not suspect anything about, Ezio lives badly his betrayal and the guilty feelings push him to lose control. He really loves Irene and hates himself for his behaviour. So why does he not break up with Sofia? The real problem is that our minds and bodies tell us different stories about who we are and what we want. The truth vanishes and we find ourselves living in a blurred reality that we cannot understand.

Director Statement

This production, by showing some behaviors of a man who is facing a heavy psychological trauma, tries to explain the influence that the mind has on the cognitive and sensorial perception of each individual and on his way of seeing the world. Objectivity is nothing but a mere ideal: in the world there are only infinite subjective realities conditioned by emotions, desires and memories.
