The event promises to be a journey into the magic of Italian fairy tales, a world of reverie and symbolism in which love is the undisputed protagonist. Theater and Music will be entrusted to the mastery of AnimaScenica, capable of bringing to life characters and atmospheres that move between reality and imagination.

The idea of dedicating this show to love is not accidental, but is deeply intertwined with the life and work of Italo Calvino. The Italian author has always had a strong interest in this theme, investigating every facet of it through his writing. As he himself wrote, "There can be no love if one is not oneself...."

Castiglione della Pescaia's "Italo Calvino" Library, located in an enchanting and evocative place, offers the ideal setting for such an event. Spectators will be able to immerse themselves in the magic of words, notes and images, indulging in fantasy and dreams.

This event represents a unique opportunity to celebrate the figure of Italo Calvino and his immense contribution to Italian and international culture. But above all, it represents an opportunity to reflect on love, its mysteries and wonders, its challenges and achievements.
