installation and performance
In a former psychiatric hospital of Volterra an autistic patient would reawaken himself only during the night - and sing.
It is said that he had the most beautiful treble voice ever heard.
There are no legal evidence of the existence of this nameless person for the hospital of Volterra destroyed all documents.
The only person who witness his existence is the director Pier Nello Manoni who was in charge of documenting the last six months of the hospital work.
He would spend nights in the room next to the man and made audio recordings of his songs, now lost. The only moment of existence, rapture and freedom was, for that man, the moment of singing. During the day he would fall back into silence.
La Voce wants to reenact the existence of this nameless voice.
