Dario Fo   Category:

Real socialism is inside man. It wasn't born with Marx. It was in the communes of Italy in the Middle Ages. You can't say it is finished.
Dario Fo   Category:

We thought the church had withdrawn from interfering in Italian politics... but instead there is a terrible resurgence. These are ugly signs for freedom of expression.
Dario Fo   Category:

When I was a boy, unconsciously, spontaneously I learned the art of telling ironic stories.
Dario Fo   Category:

With comedy I can search for the profound.
