A.LI.VE.’s youth choir and actors set up an adaptation from Alessandro Manzoni’s “The Betrothed”. They have given a new and fresh view to this Italian masterpiece, modernising its topics and proving that social injustices and political corruption is still going on in our country, like it was 200 years ago, when the novel was written. At one point in the novel, a lawyer, the Quibbleweaver, says “law is not for everyone, law is not for poor people”, and it can be said that the utterance is still real nowadays…
