Aldo Nove’s novel “Mi chiamo…” (“My name is…”) tells the story of the life of the great Calabrese singer Mia Martini: from joyful moments of her adolescence, to the difficult relationship with her family and her great love of music. When she was at the height of her success, because of a series of coincidences, a rumor started circulating that the presence of Mia Martini brought bad luck. Slowly, this whisper became a shadow that swallowed her up day-by-day, eventually hollowing out and stealing her soul. The show is an intense and sensitive portrayal of a woman and her destiny.
ULTIMA NOTTE MIA – Mia Martini, una vita.
Mia Martini è stata trovata riversa sul suo letto, le cuffie ancora sulle orecchie, una mattina del Maggio 1995. Stava lavorando ad una sua canzone. Moltissime cose si sono dette sulla sua morte, ma la sua vita resta un esempio raro di come l’ignoranza e l’invidia possano distruggere non solo la carriera di una persona, ma la persona stessa.
