With this text, Gabriele Di Luca has been chosen as an Italian author in the American project ITALIAN PLAYWRIGHTS PROJECT III edition (2020/22), directed to the promotion of contemporary creative writing. In 2020 was a finalist at the Premio Le Maschere del Teatro Italiano in the section new Italian best author.
In 2022 the text of Miracoli Metropolitani was published by the publishing house CuePress.

Soon Patty, Plinio’s seventy-year-old mother, will join the family.
To complete the bitter/tragicomic tableau there are Cesare, that will soon grow fond, in a tender and morbid way, of the problematic Igor; Mosquito, an aspiring actor prisoner forced into community services; Mohamed, a university teacher in Libano and an underpaid rider in Italy.
