The first step of this journey will be a launch event focused on Comedy, from Plautus to Machiavelli, from the ancient form of Atellane to its descendant: the Commedia dell’Arte. The full program of this new series will also be announced on this occasion.
With Giacoma Bonello, Laura Caparrotti, Mario Merone, Alice Lussiana Parente, Shannon Riccoand the participation of Massimo Zordan.
