An Italian word for performance, spectacle, or play

Pronounced “speh-TAK-ō-lō” – think of the English word “spectacular”


…there was a tiny hill town in Tuscany that found a remarkable way to confront their issues – they turned their lives into a play. Every summer for the past 50 years, their piazza becomes their stage and villagers from 6 to 90 play a part – the role of themselves.

“Spettacolo” is a documentary film directed by Jeff Malmberg & Chris Shellen.  Not Rated.  91 minutes.  Italian with subtitles.
