Davide DDL is among the protagonists of the festival of censored arts, for freedom of expression and against anti-blasphemy laws. Art exhibitions, group shows, live performances, talks, screenings, stand-up comedies, on the theme of censorship for religious reasons and blasphemy.
Stand Up Comedian, satirist, podcaster and Digital ADV manager of the Noisy Naples Fest (the only one of the things for which he is already paid well).
He starts writing for several online magazines but, after a lawsuit for his first satirical text, he decides that the wisest thing to do is to found the blog Il Porco, on which he will write only satirical texts for two years under a pseudonym, from an Ivorian domain .
From 2018 he approaches the Stand Up Comedy, now his main activity together with the Redundancy Fund in Waiver.
He is from Naples. So he does everything you’ve read with a salary gap of 56% of the national average.
Anti-blasphemy laws in Italy and around the world are used to suppress political opponents and dissidents, to censor artists, journalists and free thinking.
The application of a law that should protect an unidentified “religious sentiment” is highly subjective, completely arbitrary. There are countries where even a woman’s song can be considered blasphemous. A reality that moves large sums of money and votes but which cannot be satirized or criticized, becomes untouchable: an unnameable god becomes truly omnipotent even on the political and social level. This is why Ceci n’est pas un blasphème , the festival of censored arts, was born .
The festival enjoys the moral patronage of the Department of Culture of Naples, but to maintain independence and thus guarantee the quality of the curatorship we do not have access to public funds: we are professionals but we work on it as a team of volunteers, we believe in it a lot, if you share the message give us a hand to make it happen: together we can do something great, for art, for poetry, for freedom of expression, against any form of religious abuse!
