MACHIAVELLI’S THE PRINCE
(EL PRÍNCIPE DE MAQUIAVELO)
1 male character
Machiavelli wrote The Prince in 1513. Five centuries later, his words are still absolutely valid. Isn’t it frightening to think that, no matter how much time has passed, the rules of power are always the same? In these times of political upheaval, lies, corruption and abuse, take a look at the past can help us understand the present. Machiavelli’s clairvoyant analysis makes clear, once again, that the exercise of power requires maneuvers and decisions that are not always ethically appropriate, but could we live without them? A play that can not remain indifferent to any citizen who depend on the decisions of their leaders. Anyway, if we think for a moment… is there anyone who doesn’t depend on that?
