THE STORY OF MAFIA power in Italy, and of the civic struggle against it, is one of the great political themes of the last half-century; and one that is too often ignored, outside the world of Hollywood movies.  Sadly, though, this ambitious two-handed show – by Marco Gambino and Attilio Bolzoni of Jermyn Street Theatre, and performed by Gambino with Patrizia Bollini – chooses a dramatic form so fragmented, and so confusing in its approach to the subject, that even some powerful visual images fail to save the show; and the audience is left, after an hour, feeling as though the story has barely begun.
