The text of The Man in the Lightning provides a high-level look at workplace deaths that are often overlooked despite their devastating impact.

Italy is a democratic republic based on work, but we often forget that. I can't say anything else because I'm just an acrobat… But we know: acrobats have always told bitter truths..
