Music of Maria Gabriella Zen. Adapted and directed by Nicoletta Maragno.
Eight women's voices recall the painful historical events that paved the way to the collaboration between people around Europe.
In an historical moment in which often particularisms question the peace created, the theatrical reading "Chronos Paradoxos", was born with the intent to make known "the cultural identity of Europe", retracing the crucial moments that, during the twentieth century, led to the decision to create a supranational Union to ensure greater harmony and cohesion. Through the works of 24 poets (23 European and one American), written in ten European languages, the dramatic historical events, such as the Spanish War and the Second World Conflict, have been traced with the structure of the "Greek tragedy".

"Ode alla Donna" - by Prof. Loredana Bordoni
Interpreters students of classes 3 ^ C and 4 ^ C to address classical dance
On the famous Beethoven notes and through an abstract choreography, the dance represents a Fil Rouge that contains cultural heritages and positive values. The interpreters are here the muses that in an ephemeral way replace the text and, through their freshness and their strength, give a renewed vigor to the music using the universal language of dance.
"Break the Silence" - by Prof. Nicoletta Massignani
Interpreters students of classes 3 ^ C and 4 ^ C to address contemporary dance. It is a choreography inspired by the theme of violence against women, a woman who breaks free from unheard and inexplicable mistreatment. The red shoes are a must, a symbol of the social campaign linked to this theme which is positive: choreography is an invitation to "rise up" against such violence, to "break the chain of silence" that makes women a prisoner of humiliation and bullying , highlighting the strength and beauty of the woman, who, although indelibly marked, wins against violence.
