Giuseppina Torregrossa Giuseppina Torregrossa


“Adele is sixtyish, broad hips, shoulders hunched, her ample bosom barely contained by her worn little dress open at the front, and skimpy dark red apron”. Alone in her kitchen her mind wanders back to her one and only love, who left her the gift of a child, and a marriage. A handsome and impenetrable son and a forced wedding with “manciato”, so-called in the village because of the “scabs that cover him from head to toe that not even his thick black body hair can hide”. With this withering monologue, which earned her the 2008 Roma Women and Theatre Award, Giuseppina Torregrossa delights us with this unforgettable portrait of a Sicilian woman and the whole world brought to life by her voice.
