Beside “ira”, “furia” o “rabbia”, there is also another Italian word: “collera”. Among other modern languages, also English has at least five words to mean this emotion: anger, wrath, rage, fury, choler. As for ancient Greek, we can list no less than three words: μῆνις, ὀργή e χόλος. Many words mean the same emotion according to its intensity, expression, symptoms and effects. This emotion, though well-known in antiquity, has also inspired poets and writers of all times. The Iliad, the oldest literary work of western culture, focuses on Achilles’ wrath. During the Italian Renaissance Ludovico Ariosto wrote Orlando furioso. Finally, Rabbia is a theatrical show, staged in 1995 by the Pippo Delbono Company as a tribute to the poem with the same title written in 1963 by Pier Paolo Pasolini.
