Twenty-two shows with the monologue Story of a thin man and five regions involved: Sardinia, Marche, Tuscany, Lombardy and Emilia. It is the program of the eighth tour of the actor’s monologue Paolo Floris on the occasion of Remembrance Day.

The story told by Story of a man Magro tells the story of one of the many men protagonists of the Second World War. Vittorio Palmasfrom Perdasdefogu, who died a few years ago just before turning 106, was for a period in Bergen Belsen concentration camp, the same as Anne Frank. Jews, homosexuals, gypsies but often also political prisoners were weighed every week. And anyone weighing less than 35 kilos was killed.

One morning in 1944 Palmas steps on the scales, the weight is 37. And Vittorio will say: “I am alive for two kilos”. Based on Giacomo Mameli’s book La ghianda è una ciliegia (2006), Floris’ show, born from the meeting with Ascanio Celestini and the author of the book, brings Vittorio’s memories to light. With a light narration, which does not spare the horrors of Nazi-fascism, the life of the Sardinian soldier prisoner Imi (Italian military internees) becomes on stage, with the technique of narrative theatre, the symbol of many common men who the violence of war he transformed into heroes.
