TRANS- Porpora

On 26 and 27 September, the Teatrino di Palazzo Grassi, in collaboration with Annalisa Sacchi (Università Iuav di Venezia), hosts two days of events entitled TRANS-, a prefix that indicates a passage beyond a term, a crossing, a change from one condition to another.

The second appointment, on Tuesday 27 September, presents the screening of the documentary Porpora directed by Roberto Cannavò (2021, Produzione: Humareels, 62'), a journey on the road in the human adventure of Porpora Marcasciano, a transsexual who has lived as a protagonist the feminist, communist and trans movements from the seventies to today. Neither man nor woman, her identity is in perennial transition.

The screening is followed by a conversation between Porpora Marcasciano, leader of the trans movement and city councilor of Bologna, and the actor Luce Sant’Ambrogio, actrice and PhD student at the Università orientale di Napoli, who graduated in Theatre and Performing Arts at the University Iuav di Venezia.
