Teresa Mannino is the co-host of the third evening of the 2024 Sanremo Festival . The Sicilian actress and comedian, on the Ariston stage, became the protagonist of a monologue that involved the audience and also made them reflect.

Teresa Mannino's monologue in Sanremo

“So guys we are in 2024, but let's think like 2500 years ago , said Teresa Mannino starting her monologue on the Sanremo 2024 stage. Then she continued with a reflection on the human being in general:

I'll tell you what my theory is: in the 5th century BC the Greek philosopher Protagoras said that man is the measure of all things, today we can say the white, rich and Western man is the measure of all things. Except that man has really lost this measure. But then why men and not women? I always see women busy, wasn't the human being better, or rather the human animal, because we are animals, we must not forget it, every time I see my brother-in-law I don't forget it.

There is then space for a reference to the animal world, to the fact that they have their own way of communicating and that we, human beings, are presumptuous because we think we are superior:

We have 50% of our genetic heritage the same as bananas, with monkeys, chimpanzees and other primates we have 98% of our genetic heritage in common, only that this information is not very widespread because chimpanzees don't want to make it known. We are presumptuous because we speak, but animals have another way of communicating. We Sicilians, when someone from the North arrives, we speak to them in Sicilian and if they don't understand we say 'this is an idiot'. We have the same presumption towards other living beings, but they communicate in another way, animals with their bodies, with sounds, for example baboons greet each other by squeezing their penises and with this simple gesture they acquire a lot of information, they don't need to ask how old you are, they also understand the possibility of collaborating.

“We should copy society from leaf cutting ants”

Still at the center of the stage, the actress then explained how leaf-cutting ants are a model of society that we should take inspiration from: they have been on earth for millions of years, they have never ruined anything and are guided by a queen mother, who chooses the sex of the unborn children, while males are born once a year:

In the old testament Job says 'ask the animals and they will teach you'. I questioned the leaf-cutting ants, they cultivate like us, they cultivate mushrooms because they really like them, they have been farming for 50 million years and they haven't ruined anything, we have been farming for 10 thousand years and we have exhausted the world. The society of leaf cutting ants has a queen mother, the males are a small minority, the queen mother chooses the sex of the unborn children and which ones does she choose? Females. The males are born once a year to continue the species, they have the task of making this nuptial flight and then they die. But how far along are they? They don't have problems with exes, what's up with that? Is dead. And what about now? A matter of hours.

Finally the conclusion:

Human animals prefer power, over men, over nature. I also like power, but the power of, which is a completely different thing, the power of making you laugh, of dressing in feathers, of dancing in the middle of the street even if my daughter says I make her feel ashamed. I'm not willing to ignore the stories that haven't happened yet. If they haven't passed, it's not the time to move on.
