An event that has been able to cross the years with sobriety, lightness and elegance without ever losing sight of its identity. So here is Il Magico Zecchino d’Oro, a title that is already a program. A musical born from the collaboration between Antoniano of Bologna, Fondazione Aida of Verona and Centro Servizi Culturali Santa Chiara of Trento, supported by Geomag and Valfrutta.
