The script is inspired by three diaries preserved at the National Diary Archive in Pieve Santo Stefano. In the play, only one part of the three diarists’ lives is recounted: the moment they fell, unable to put their skills to use.
Their stories are linked by a cruel gospel tale: it is the parable of the talents, where those who always succeed in improving are rewarded, and those who backslide are punished.
One of Italy’s first female doctors, a painter, and a woman devoted to love and marriage bury their talents underground: this play explores how and why.
