Milan – “This is your truth, say only what suits you, you are completely inflating the numbers”.
The show, ‘Herr Doktor’, with actors Davide Saccianoce and Beatrice Marzorati revolved around Joseph Goebbels, the propaganda minister of the Third Reich, and staged on the eve of Memorial Day at the Spazio Teatro 89.
It is not be the first time that the teachr, Pietro Marinelli, has expressed controversial positions. In the past he posted content against vaccines, against the LGBT movement and against Islam.
Pietro Marinelli is a professor of law and economics at the “IIS Maria Curie / Pietro Sraffa” in Milan.
When the actress Beatrice Marzorati began to list the number of deaths from the Holocaust from the stage, the teacher stood up and shouted phrases from the audience such as “this is your truth, only say what suits you, you are completely inflating the numbers”. The actress replied that “this is history” while the professor retorted that “instead it is ideology”.
“We tried to calm him down to continue the show and possibly resume the moment of confrontation at the end of the performance – explained the actress to the microphones of TgR Lombardia – but he decided to leave the hall”.
An apology from the principal, Raffaella d’Amore, arrived at the Spazio Teatro 89, the staff, the school council and the theatre, to dissociate themselves from these denial statements and to explain how this episode does not represent the institute in any way.
