Conversations between Italy and China, press conference in Milan

Atty Francesco Brugnatelli attended the event “The Conversations between Italy and China” on Wednesday 4th September, including the press conference on the production of “Marco Polo” in Italy. The original opera debuted at the Opera House in Guanzhou in 2018, thanks to the production of China Arts and Entertainment Group, and its first performance outside China is scheduled in the program of the Carlo Felice Theatre in Genoa, which will provide the orchestra and choir, while costumes and artists, except the protagonist Marco Polo, are the same as in the original Chinese version.

As the artistic director Mr Giuseppe Acquaviva pointed out, this exceptional performance is the result of cultural exchanges between Europe and China, the two extremes of the ancient Silk Road.
