Don Giovanni chooses a piazza as a place for a lover’s tryst: a piazza that was once, in other times, a theatre of torture and death. The recurring vision of a wooden monument in flames, erected in the great piazza in memory of a man of free thought, is a source of constant disquiet for Don Giovanni, a frightfully terrible trial that evokes fear, anxiety, terror and horror. The image of the wooden monument burning keeps coming back to Don Giovanni’s mind, to the extent that it becomes an obsession, which in the end the great personage realises it somehow represents the inexorable tragic epilogue of his own life. A group of ten people, men and women, persecute Don Giovanni, the loathed seducer, manifestly seeking revenge. Again and again they scorn and sully his senses, the source of his faculty of love, with the aim of crippling his sense of taste, hearing, smell, touch and sight. Deformed in body and humiliated in thought, Don Giovanni wanders the capitals of the world, desperate, now incapable of loving, doomed to die.
