PINETO – ‘Free in the Trap’ is the title of the musical and literary project created, written and created by Beppe Frattaroli (author, composer and arranger) with whom the artist from Bugnara initially tours many Italian cities and arouses great interest from the public and critics. The performance will be proposed on Sunday 24 July at 9 pm in Villa Filiani’s garden in Pineto as part of the literary café by Ernesto, CEO of Pineto Progetto Cultura, Ernesto Iezzi. ‘Free In The Trap’ was born to try to answer the questions that have always characterized the most important movements of the human soul: who are we? What are we moving behind? What emotions inhabit and dominate our heart? Can we recognize them? And if we are recognized, do we have the ability to freely choose which of them to accept or reject? If faith is present, what does it mean in our lives? If, on the other hand, it is absent, or we neglect it for a number of reasons, can this be to give up something fundamental that can benefit the meeting with ourselves and with others? These were the most pressing questions that Frattaroli tries to give a convincing answer to, inspired by the Ignatian spirituality, which was discovered in the late nineties. When the artist created the work, the artist used his musical and narrative art, which he proposes live through music, films, monologues, readings and author songs in Italian and Latin, a container for the public full of elements that leave free space for analysis on the many life issues.
“Why free in the trap and not free from the trap?” Frattaroli answers this question: “We will never have total freedom in this world; but we can strive to conquer ever greater areas of freedom, in order to gradually raise our level of consciousness “. ‘Liberi Nella trappola’ has become a book that is available in e-book and audiobook format in all digital stores and of course in the printed version, along with a documentary that traces the book’s chapters.
