We thought the church had withdrawn from interfering in Italian politics… but instead there is a terrible resurgence. These are ugly signs for freedom of expression.

Dario Fo

Real socialism is inside man. It wasn’t born with Marx. It was in the communes of Italy in the Middle Ages. You can’t say it is finished.

Dario Fo

Our homeland is the whole world. Our law is liberty. We have but one thought, revolution in our hearts.

Dario Fo

Nevertheless, the mode, the justification, and all the games involved in this war were dishonest.

Dario Fo

Know how to live the time that is given you.

Dario Fo

It is extremely dangerous to talk about limits or borders. It is vital, instead, that we remain completely open, that we are always involved, and that we aim to contribute personally in social events.

Dario Fo

Dario Fo

All forms of power – even based on the consensus of the democratic system – react when they are being attacked, or when those who exercise power become a target.

Dario Fo

It is hard for power to enjoy or incorporate humour and satire in its system of control.
