one of the Befana’s best assistants!
Conceived and interpreted by Laura Caparrotti
La Befana is an Italian Christmas tradition that has its origins in the 13th century. Befana is a benevolent old woman who delivers gifts to children on January 5th, the eve of the Epiphany.
In this program, you will meet Happy Fanny, a sweet Befana assistant who has only one problem: she forgets things. Befana loves her and gives her various chores that usually Happy Fanny forgets finding herself in trouble. The children will save her, every time, and they will help her to go back home to Befana.
During Happy Fanny visit, the participant will draw, sing, dance and learn about Italy, its language and traditions.
Each visit is to be tailored to the need of the school, center, community where the show takes place.
