Morte accidentale di un anarchico

Accidental Death of an Anarchist is perhaps the best-known play by the Nobel Prize winner Dario Fo.

The play is based on events involving a real person, Giuseppe Pinelli, who fell - or was thrown - from the fourth floor window of a Milan police station in 1969. He was accused of bombing a bank (the Piazza Fontana bombing) as part of the Italian Far Right's strategy of tension.
The play opens with Inspector Bertozzo interrogating The Maniac, a histrionic character. The Maniac, however, constantly outsmarts the dim-witted Bertozzo and, when Bertozzo leaves the room, intercepts a phone call from Inspector Pissani.
