Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:
Italian Nobel Prize winner Dario Fo deceased
The Italian theater director, playwright and actor Dario Fo who received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1997, has died at the age of 90. …
The author wrote much of his work together with his wife Franca Rame. The Nobel Prize which he received in 1997, he called “our prize”. …
Fo based himself in his work on the Italian Commedia dell’arte, improvisational comedy mocking authorities. In his work he mocked popes, politicians and the Mafia.
He was indicted more than forty times for insult or defamation, and was arrested several times on stage. Because of his political activities he was not allowed in the United States and was censored for a long time by Italian television broadcasters.
