Cape Town – Disgraced actor Kevin Spacey performed in public for the first time since his sexual misconduct scandal.

While standing next to the Boxer at Rest statue at the Palazzo Massimo the 60-year-old performed an Italian poem by Gabriele Tinti.

This performance comes a month after the young man who accused Kevin of sexual assault dropped his lawsuit against the actor.

The Italian poet Gabriele contacted Kevin himself letting his work speak and presenting the project to him, reports The Independent.

"He immediately appreciated the courage and special nature of my proposal. The idea of giving voice to ancient statuary, of giving new life to the finds, the fragments, that which remains of our past, struck a note with his sensitivity and deep love of art," said Gabriele.
