The drama season of the Municipality of Lecce, in collaboration with the Teatro Pubblico Pugliese, will officially start in January with 15 shows scheduled. While waiting for, on 8 December a prestigious non-subscription preview is scheduled: protagonist Ferzan zpetek, Turkish director, screenwriter and writer, who will be on stage with “Ferzaneide. Sono Ia! “, A show written during the long period of suspension that the whole world has experienced and which has strongly affected the live entertainment sector, a sentimental journey through the memories, suggestions and human figures that have inspired many of the his films.


This time on stage there is me, me alone, to meet the public – explains the director, honorary citizen of Lecce – with the story of my artistic career and my feeling for life, mine and that of others. In love, in friendship, in amazement, in all those gestures and places illuminated by passion. Over the years I have embraced many causes in the name of courage. Courage. Perhaps this word contains the meaning of what we say night after night. The courage to pursue your dreams. The courage to challenge prejudices. The courage to be happy. And hope to be back again. At the theater, cinema, concerts, museums. Everywhere.

” Ferzaneide ”, which I am sure will attract many of his Salento admirers to the room. The real season will start in January and will be, again, after the completion of the works at the Paisiello, divided between our two municipal theaters. Soon, we will give all the information on ticket pre-sales. This year we have not foreseen a subscription that includes all the shows, but a package formula to meet everyone’s needs. It will be the first season of post-pandemic prose. There are still many people who are hesitant to return to the stalls, but, respecting all the precautions we know by now, I hope that until late spring we will be able to fully enjoy the newfound wonder of the theater.
