The Rastelli Festival, now in its third edition, will come together with I Maestri del Paesaggio for the first time. The three-day festival will present shows and workshops, open to both professionals and beginners, held by important European jugglers.
The Festival, organized by the Fondazione Teatro Donizetti in collaboration with Ambaradan, aims to rediscover, through various initiatives, shows, workshops and tournaments, the spirit and art of Enrico Rastelli. The influence of this "master of balance" and precursor to contemporary circus is felt even today.
