Eat pasta? Like Italy? Want to learn the story of Italy in an hour while being entertained? For free? And bring the kids? Mark your calendar for June 22.
The show is in French, but as you can see from the video, it is a visual production with lights and puppetry. A video of highlights is on the Altraparis (Italians in Paris) Web site.
Italy is celebrating a week in Paris. One of the festivities for celebrating the 150th anniversary of Italian unification is the “Contes Italiens à Paris” presented by the Acuto Association and the theatre company, Cà Luogo d’Arte.
Cà Luogo d’Arte has chosen Italo Calvino’s story of the Italian people starring Francesca Bizzarri and Dario Eduardo de Falco. It all happens in the Salle de Fêtes at the Mairie du XIII (mayor’s office in the 13th arrondissement) at 3:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.
The show lasts one hour and is for anyone over the age of six.
