Un giorno di paga - A daily wage

A woman working at a loom: “The first time I entered Zopfi… was on my 14th birthday… but my mother had been working in the textile mill since 1914 when she was only 12 years old ”; women and young girls which after a brief apprenticeship began to work on the machines, on the spinning wheels and on the looms. An opera that tells a story, a different ‘story’ because it is unwritten, dismissed, and ordinary and perhaps for these very reasons, finally worthy of being narrated. A visual and vibrant poetry, where sensations and sentiments merge, like the complex and fascinating pre-fusions which give life to Nives’ unique creations.
