“The courage of your own time” is a play about few architects that changed our way of life creating a new language, the Modern one. The story is about the thoughts of a group of artists during the Italian Fascist regime.

A story that speaks to the new generations to tell them that art and profession could be a way to emancipate people in all historical period. 

The city of Milan was the protagonist while La Triennale di Milano and Casabella had a main role spreading out the values of the Modern Movement.
