Esistono Bibbie degli imperatori, splendidamente miniate, ed esistono, meno appariscenti e meno note, ma non meno preziose, Bibbie dei villani. Sono le Bibbie dei contadini, dei piccoli mercanti e degli artigiani, insomma del popolo minuto, che la tradizione orale e scritta di ogni regione d’Italia ci ha tramandato, e che Dario Fo e Franca Rame hanno scoperto in anni di ...more

Um libro bom de Dario Fo, embora não excepcional. Contêm 6 monólogos curtos, sendo o melhor o "The Story of the Tiger".

As outras cinco histórias compõe o que é chamado da "Bíblia do camponês" - Fo buscou nas histórias tradicionais do povo aquelas que, assim como as do famoso ...more
