The show has the ambition of making known and loved the text that collects and formulates the values of democracy, and is inspired by some of the most beautiful and sometimes least known pages of Italian literature of the twentieth century, Calamandrei, De Luca, Fortini, Montanelli, Pasolini, Sciascia, Terzani, Vergani. An evocative title that comes from Carlo Levi, when he observed "in the appearance of Italy, not only the infinite particular realities, the innumerable individual lives and the fabric of existence, but all the memory in a face that resembles us".
Staged in December 2007 at the Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome and broadcast by Rai Due on 1 February 2008, at the opening of the events for the 60th anniversary of the Constitutional Charter, this unusual journey into the political sentiments of Italians won the Prize Persefone 2008 as the best television theater show of the year.
