He says Laura Croce , artistic director of Murmuris : “ We had to give up the last winter and spring program again. We are here today to recover what we have lost, a further opening us to the city, creating a summer program who could give the public the pleasure of sharing. During the months of closure we continued unabated meetings with our groups of aware spectators, the result of the Casateatro and Teens projects that we have been conducting in the Region for years now, involving about 500 people in total. Well, it is indescribable desire to return to see a quality theater, to come together to watch the original content, to get together to listen. "
