At Teatro Arena del Sole – Sala De Berardinis, from June 7 to 19, the première of Nuvole directed by Nanni Garella and based on the screenplays by P.P. Pasolini, with Nanni Garella and the actors of Arte e Salute.

Nanni Garella has brought on stage Pasolini's cinema with two performances - Edipo and Il Vangelo secondo Matteo – both with strong emotional impact, showing the typical “pasoliniano” character of the performers of Arte e Salute company, born in the mental illness environment.

The director Nanni Garella now returns to Pasolini's scripts -  real jewels of "on stage" narrative,  in particular to those of two unforgettable episodes of collective films: "La Terra vista dalla Luna", an episode of the film "Le streghe" (1966) with Totò, Ninetto Davoli and Silvana Mangano, and "Che cosa sono le nuvole?", episode of "Capriccio all'italiana" (1967) with, among others, Totò, Ninetto Davoli and Laura Betti. The "mise-en-scène" by Garella has been inspired by this last episode, set in a suburban theater.
First performance ever. On stage also a musical ensemble consisting of  eight students of the Conservatorio “G.B. Martini” di Bologna.  

The event is part of bè bolognaestate 2016, the summer programme of events coordinated by the Comune di Bologna – Area cultura e rapporti con l'Università.

In the evenings of the event a food court is open in the theatre at the Chiostro dell'Arena.
