An autobiographical show that tells the story of a son who will grow away from his homeland, but also the story of a father, of sacrifices made to avoid raising a child in the misery of a State that no longer exists.
It is also the story of his great love for his land: Albania.
From Albania to Italy. My life is a wonderful journey. Aleksandros Memetaj
The dissatisfaction of the people is expressed with demonstrations, destruction of dictatorial symbols and mass exodus, first of all that of Brindisi. Especially since the hearth of the revolt, last in Europe, has been waiting for years, after the death of Enver hoxha in the 1985 and the fall of the Berlin wall in the 1989, to start, starting from Scutari, then blazing across the nation and reaching the main cities: Tirana, Durres and Vlora.
The political movements formed (above all the disinherited, intellectuals and students) are beginning to get agitated against the government. Embassies are opened by the respective countries and flooded with asylum seekers.
Then the president Ramiz Alia grants the right to travel outside the state, reopening the borders and opening up to the free economy. Thousands of people try to escape to the West from the ports of Vlora and Durres with ships, fishing boats and dinghies bound for Italy. Among these there is also Alexander Toto, thirty who escapes from Vlora aboard the fishing boat "Miredita" (Good morning) and arrives in Brindisi.
There is also in that fishing boat Aleksandros Memetaj, child of 6 months. Albania my house is the story of a son who will grow away from his homeland, in Veneto, a place that will never give him a full sense of belonging.
"Albania my house" is also the story of a father, of the sacrifices made, the dangers run to avoid raising his child in the misery of a State that no longer exists. It is also the story of his great love for his land, of great patriotism, of elevation of some values that no longer exist in Italy.
When the people cry blood and rebel against the State, for a controversial game of the human soul, the heart, though wet with poison, preserves the smells, the images and the sweet memories of a unique nation, with a suffered and passionate history.
The seemingly distant destinies of Aleksandros Memetaj and Alexander Toto intersect several times in history to create a single rope, a single thought. Until one becomes the son and the other the father.
