The celebration of the twenty years of Marionet is the perfect excuse for a unique musical performance that recovers from the river Lethe the performer Il Maiale Nero.
Pioneer of the world fission movement, Il Maiale Nero specialized in obtaining from the guitar what it didn’t want to give. In his rare shows, between talking with the audience and adjusting his trousers, he exhibits songs where the lyrics occupy a wide spectrum of themes, ranging from the people and their longings, to love and its three breasts.

Originally presented in Coimbra in 2002, Il Maiale Nero was a fleeting comet without a tail in the Portuguese musical-theatre panorama. The perennity of the themes addressed in his songs, digging deep into human nature, more than justifies this coming back to a renewed audience.
In this special occasion, the alignment of the show will go through the ventures and distresses of human love. Like he usually says: “We are all a bunch of things doing things we regret and are proud of.”
Born in the previous century, Il Maiale Nero still doesn’t know when he is going to die.
It will be an event directed to people with a sense of humour.
