29 September 2007

The Formigine Castle is ready to open its doors again. The important architectural renovation has disclosed its origins and its unknown features and offers new perspectives and unexpected views.

This is the day of the opening cerimony. Nobel prize for literature Dario Fo is about to stage Mistero buffo in the inner park of the Castle. But all of sudden, just moments before his performance, he ask for paint and brushes: he wants to leave his own personal dedication to the Castle. And there he goes, painting on the windowpane of the hall of the arches. Colourful flowers and his signature are the souvenirs of his journey here. Thank you, Dario!
