“The Fundamental Laws of Human Stupidity” is an essay by Carlo Cipolla from 1973 in which the Italian economic historian defined, in a rather comical way, human behavior based on our actions and the consequences they have on others. For Cipolla, the great danger of humanity is stupidity and the stupid, people who manage to harm themselves and others. 50 years later, João de Brito decided to stage this philosophical and political text, setting the action in a butcher’s shop and calling on various arts to accompany him in the staging.
