“The Unexpected Inspector” on Saturday 30 July at 9.15 pm in Gradoli p.za Palombini and always on Sunday 31 at 9:15 in the Farnese Amphitheater, “The Unexpected Inspector” for the unprepared tuccia review of the Teatro Faucet, financed by the Caravit Foundation and the participating municipalities is returned by. Gianni Abate da Gogol. It is a brutal satire, an act of scathing condemnation of public corruption.
“I set Gogol’s work” – says Abate – “in an unknown town in northern Italy in the early 2000s, populated by corrupt characters, bookmakers and smugglers. The story unfolds as a comedy of misunderstanding, with The viewer can observe two levels of action, without the knowledge of each other, with the inevitable fun until the turning point obvious to all. We come to the plot. The news of the arrival of an official of the state administration in the northern city made the mayor and exposed the fear of the public, who were accustomed to poor governance and robberies even inside the hospital, for contempt of punishment and infringing correspondence.
In an effort to provide an ethical and honest image of his conduct, he sets up a system of security and support, including financial ones, for a young man staying at a starred hotel in the city, whom he believes is a suspected overseer. Which the mayor will also give his daughter’s hand. Poor, partly out of disorientation and partly out of opportunism, accepts alleged loans that the authorities give him with the intention of obtaining his altruism as well as blackmailing him.
The young deceiver is overpowered by the corrupt ruling class, which, realizing that it cannot usurp any more, thus betrays the fraudsters. The final turn, the arrival of the real Inspector General who will give the final blow to the gang of dishonest”. In Abate’s rewriting, Gogol’s satirical gaze is expressed in an even more parody vision, where caricatured characters, with a distinctive Northern accent, circle around this false inspector with colorful dialect in Roman dialect. The story should be dramatic, but it definitely turns out to be comical.
