Molti gli ‘attori’ importanti, quali Giuseppe Toeplitz, Luigi Einaudi, Benedetto Croce, Giovanni Malagodi, Sergio Solmi, Ugo los angeles Malfa, Riccardo Bacchelli, Palmiro Togliatti e altri; al centro, però, rimangono sempre i due protagonisti principali, esponenti di una classe dirigente competente e colta, oggi pressoché estinta.
