"Federico Maggioni loves the Gothic tale, the settings that spawn the ghosts of the imagination, like in his previous A Christmas Carol, filled with bestiaries and sinister presences. In Rigoletto's parabola, according to his interpretation, there is a sequence of hellish visions in which what is told by images is what is in the first place, beyond any political or Risorgmento vision, a desperate song of innocent, humiliated and offended, in the game between buffoons and the powerful, kings and jesters, mirrors of each other, monkey-like imitators of nothing, that crushes them in the grip of its relentless vise." Luca Scarlini.
