The show is the result of a workshop conducted by Gigi Borruso with students from the Teatro Biondo School and interaction with the community of the Mezzomonreale - Villa Tasca district. It focuses on the difficult choices of adolescence, the courage to defy rules, and the determination to decide one's destiny, starting from the story of Rosalia Sinibaldi as handed down by tradition.

"Con le mie ali" aims to explore the shifting perspectives of youth, the trials through which boys and girls become adults, and the new paths they forge for humanity. The journey spans myths and examples from the past and contemporary world: from Antigone to Francis and Clare of Assisi, from Joan of Arc to Louis Braille, and the story of Iqbal Masih, who fought against child slavery in Pakistan.

These are stories of those who dared to rebel against a fate imposed by others, often at the cost of their lives, and whose awareness helped the world change its course.

The "Santa Adolescence" project reinforces Teatro Biondo's commitment to the city's outskirts, presenting a show that serves as both a test for the new students of the Teatro Biondo School, in collaboration with the Dams of the University of Palermo, and an original contribution to the celebrations for the 400th anniversary of the Festino di Santa Rosalia.

In the city's great identity festival, where the community envisions the future, "Con le mie ali" brings a reflection on Rosalia's courageous journey and the universal values of freedom and equality, starting with gender equality.
