Va pensiero portrays the current situation in Italy, describing today’s instability and corruption. It suggests a parallelism with the hopes of the Italian Risorgimento, which are contained in the music of Giuseppe Verdi (Va pensiero is known in English as the “Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves”, contained in “Nabucco” by Giuseppe Verdi). Va Pensiero is set in Emilia-Romagna. It investigates the complicated and delicate relations between mafia, politics and the leading business class. These connections are increasingly penetrating into the society of this region, where socialism and the first co-operative associations were born. Marco Martinelli helps people to discover the meaning of words like “democracy” and “justice” with a desperate and vibrant cry for hope.
