Uncle Wolf is a peasant fairy tale. It belongs to the oral tradition of the land of Romagna, but is, at the same time, universal. It is a fairy tale, from another time, where the word given possesses the meaning of valor, fortitude, greatness, courage, joy–life! An actress/singer and a musician are featured. They welcome you into their home:  they make you sit in a small bed with a warm blanket and from the foot of that bed they lead you by the hand into the story: smelling, touching, tasting, listening and closing your eyes almost to the beginning of sleep.

Free admission.
