Fidenza Village

Thursday 15 August

At times we experience the desire to shout out to the world what matters to us. It takes courage and a bit of madness to find that strength in us. And so it is that a book, a hula hoop, a trumpet or the voice becomes the means by which we can give vent to one's feelings and share them with others.

The acoustic and travelling marching band skilfully evokes the films of Kusturica, accompanied by juggling and theatre shows designed to make guests fall in love and transport them to the faraway places of the Balkan tradition.
