Premio Nazionale per Autori Teatrali a Valerio Manisi

“Il testo presenta una certa complessità, specchio del tormento interiore del protagonista che vive una vicenda carica di suggestioni, in un continuo rimando all&#8217;interno di luoghi intimi dove si nasconde il mistero dell&#8217;esistenza. Poetico, melanconico, ironico in certi passaggi, il testo è ricco di riflessioni e spunti storici, iconografici e artistici. Nulla è lasciato al caso, ma studiato e intrecciato in maniera elegante e con una grande passione che genera un crescendo di emozioni culminanti in un finale aperto a tante interpretazioni. Il linguaggio risulta coerente con le varie tematiche affrontate e contribuisce a dare al testo una personalità e una struttura solida e meritevole di lode.”

Con questa motivazione, il giovane scrittore grottagliese Valerio Manisi vince il “Premio nazionale per autori teatrali” con la sua commedia “Per Amore del Padre”.
