Mario Pirovano had a special relationship with the late, great master of political satire Dario Fo and his wife and collaborator Franca Rame. Friend and former apprentice, the 66-year-old Italian performer is now a leading international interpreter of Fo’s works in both Italian and English.
So when a month-long festival of Fo’s work, Dancing with Colours, Whipping With Words, was organised in Edinburgh around the first ever UK exhibition of Fo’s paintings, Pirovano was the obvious choice to provide part of the theatrical element.
