    • Synopsis
    • Arturo (Alessandro Giupponi, director and playwright) elderly architect and Riad (Terence Nadesan in “I Gladiatori” and “Il colore dell’odio directed by Pasquale Squitieri and Pensavo fosse amore invece era un calesse by Massimo Troisi), a white-haired Singhalese man live together in Rome. Riad is Arturo’s caregiver who has suffered a stroke and is forced to walk with crutches. Riad, who left Sri Lanka many years ago, has a wife, children and a big family back home. The architect, however, is essentially alone in the world, with no friends and a brother who lives faraway. Soon his apartment will be sold by the court (he has had a financially misfortunate past) and is in danger of becoming homeless. His only chance is to leave Rome and go stay with his brother in Verona, but Arturo is a proud Roman who loves and supports the Roman soccer team and has no desire to leave the capital.
      His loneliness is slightly relieved when he realizes that he, in fact, has a friend: Riad, who is like him in age and desire to sustain vigor in the face of social stereotypes that want to “ put them out to pasture”. Meanwhile, the caregiver describes the splendors of his country, like in a storybook. “Do you wanna come?”, the Singhalese suddenly asks. Arturo thinks hard about it, sleeps on it, thinks some more, sleeps on it again and finally answers: “Yes!”
