The initiative with the patronages of the Tuscany Region, the Metropolitan Area, the Municipality of Florence and Bagno a Ripoli, UNICOOP, the Russian Culture Center and CESVOT is under the artistic direction of Olga Melnik , director of the Theater Center International that presents the new edition:
“Last year we realized our dream of bringing the air of International Festivals to our small Teatro di Bagno a Ripoli, where we have been enthusiastically participating for over twenty years. We had the joy of seeing the warm participation of a very heterogeneous public, many people from different cultures, many families with children, aspiring actors who participated in our Master classes but also spectators intrigued by the proposals of foreign companies. A week in which every evening the theater was full of people who were not only "spectators" but were "participants" of our Festival and each one contributed to its success. How not to recreate this magical atmosphere? "
The companies that will alternate throughout the week on the stage come from Morocco, Russia, distant Siberia and the nearby Tuscany, but everyone will have the common denominator of the ability to know how to communicate to the whole family. Many languages used such as pantomime, clowning, the commedia dell'arte. We will see classic texts, fairy tales and unpublished stories. Various proposals to succeed in transmitting the love for the theater to spectators from 0 to 100 years. Also for this edition all the Festival performances will be free !
To embellish this intense week, the guests of the artistic world will alternate in the jury of honor. Daniela Morozzi, Alessandro Riccio, Doretta Boretti, Andrea Stella, Carlo Terzo, Sonia Sestini, Alla Zorina will be with us .

"I dream of someone taking me away, from injustices, misunderstandings, a life that is not how I would like it! Will he be a prince on a white horse ... or maybe just a guy riding a broom? .... Who knows .... Though I have the same desire to dream "
"I dream of a bride sincerely in love with me and not with the crown I will have to bring ... I will meet her at a great ball or perhaps by chance in a wood ... but I know that looking into her eyes I will feel my heart fly away ..."
Whether you are a prince or an orphan when no one considers you as a person it is inevitable that you will become ashes. Feeling nothing and thinking that nothing will change ... but sometimes a spark is enough to rekindle an extinguished fire, and that new little hope rekindled will give the strength to change everything! That of Cinderella is an ancient story, very exploited in the entertainment world, but here we offer you a version of our own. In a swirl of colors you can see funny characters that will play with you as in a dream ... because you remember:
"The world is a great theater, we are all comedians. You can change character in a few moments. Among mysterious clouds that the human eye does not penetrate It is written that character that you must recite! "
