TOSCA - THE PLOT
Rome, its spring in which everything seems possible in its warm skies smelling of thyme ... Floria Tosca surprises her Mario inside the church of Sant’Andrea della Valle while he paints a madonna with the likeness of the Marchesa Attavanti. Thus all his jealousy is unleashed which will accompany her until the tragic epilogue.
The mass is focused on the relationship of the three protagonists (Tosca, Cavaradossi and Scarpia), on the great political themes of the early nineteenth century of a Europe dominated by the revolutionary winds and on the personal and morbid affairs that come from human relations. The historical setting is not decontextualized, but fixed in the period in which the story takes place, like a historical painting with blurred features and blurred contours. The dark colors that tend from dark red to rougenoire, the color of living blood, outline the echoes of love and war in a fuzzy way.
