COMIC MYSTERY MISTERO BUFFO is a collection of satirical monologues written by the Italian Nobel Prize winner Dario Fo in 1969.
It is based on Fo’s study of medieval folklore and tradition, the so called giullare, that is buffoon (jesters).
The topics derive mainly from the subversive, alternative, reading of biblical themes.
The buffoons were not insulting religion, God and the Saints, but revealing and ridiculing those who were using religion for their own ends.
What is very interesting is that these buffoons show that the Middle Ages, although considered a dark period in the history of mankind, still had some bright spots, first of all the spirit of the people, oppressed and exploited, but despite this quite free .
The text has been translated into the Istrian dialect cakavica, but modelled after the original and it represents a “remix” and contains elements of various Istrian dialects.
