The corrupted silence...
Have you ever thought about all people who have been obliged to shut up because of political deals? Have you ever thought how hard must be when someone that you love disapper without leaving any trace? While you know why and who made all this, but you can't talk because who committed it is someone more powerfull and more important than you...perhaps even someone who should guarantee the tranquillity inside the State...
Have you ever thought how difficult must be keep the silence when you would like to scream?!
I guess you know what happened in Argentina between 1976 and 1983 (a few more than 20 years ago...)
The theater play I went to see few hours ago at the Limonaia Theatre at Sesto Fiorentino, (sorry for the very unprofessional and free transaltion...but I can't translatethe name of the theatre...it would sound too ridiculous...!) deal about that: Los Desaparecidos.
It was a play taken from the movie "Garage Olimpo" by Marco Bechis, a wonderful - but tough film - that I really suggest you all to see.
Of course the play was well-made, so it was easy to follow the facts even without knowing anything about los desaparecidos and without having watched the movie before.
Politics crimes are unfortunately always unsolved, since people have fear about talking...Have you ever thought why the word used all over the world to express this behaviour is an italian world: omertà. That's not something to be proud about... also if we think that the majority of corrupted people who governed Argentina in that period came from the Italian mafia.
If you want to learn more about this topic you can contact "La asociaciòn madres de Plaza de Mayo": www.madres.org
It's an Argentinian association, but they are present also in the Italian territory, since many of them have italian origins... you will talk with some nice old-women who will be very proud to show you their history... confident about the fact that talking about problems is always the best way to make the solution come closer and closer...
