An exceptional evening last night with a diabolic Cinzia Spanò from Teatro dell’Elfo,
who read a magnificent Ivan from the Karamazov Brothers,
thanks to the powerful energy of Demetrio Paparoni,
author of the The Devil book and curator of the exhibition.

Clear words came from Balthazar Pagani and Chiara Savino
the team behind this incredible iconographic research by 24 Ore Cultura.
And thanks to the great Saturnino with his silver bass,
the surprising voice of Vittoria Hyde and the strong percussion of Leo Di Angilla.
