Support for children's publishing: "Libretto all'Opera di R. Gioacchino"

Place: Pesaro, Italy

Date of the project: 01 Dec 2020 - 31 Jan 2021

Topic: During the Christmas period, the Wanda Di Ferdinando Foundation selects a book with a strong social value, transforms it into an artistic performance and donates some copies of the work to the library of Pesaro so that everyone can use them for free. For Christmas 2020 the book by Isabella Galeazzi "Libretto all'Opera di R. Gioacchino" was selected.

Description of the Project:

For the Foundation Wanda Di Ferdinando, Christmas represents  the time to dedicate to children's publishing. This year, taking inspiration from a forthcoming book from the Metauro publishing house, "Libretto all'Opera di R. Gioacchino" by Isabella Galeazzi, the actresses Clio Gaudenzi and Francesca Montanari will set up a small puppet show for the children, in order to tell them about the figure of Rossini.

The desire, thanks to the activation of Tavolo Periferie, would be to physically bring the show to Borgo Santa Maria. Precisely for this reason, the show has been postponed. Obviously the project envisages also an online realization of the event (if it could not be carried out in presence or parallel to the realization in presence).

With regard to this project, the Foundation also purchased 30 copies of the book to be given to the young audience and to the San Giovanni library in Pesaro. Three young European volunteers from the Vicolocorto Association will help to disseminate and represent the project.

Who are the realities involved?

  1. Metauro publishing house;
  2. Actresses Clio Gaudenzi and Francesca Montanari;
  3. Tavolo Periferie to which the Zoe Association, the Biricoccolo Association and the Polo 9 Cooperative belong;
  4. Vicolocorto Association;
  5. Wanda Di Ferdinando Foundation.

How did this idea come about?

Since 2016, the Wanda Di Ferdinando Foundation selects a book during the Christmas period (usually of strong social value), transforms it into an artistic performance in a public place, relying on the talent of Clio (and of Francesca who has joined since 2018); donate some copies of the work to the library so that everyone can use them for free.
