Cipriani, ‘a gala against nationalisms, fanaticisms, political and religious oppositions’

“What are Les Étoiles for? – declares Daniele Cipriani – They are used to see talents coming from the four corners of the earth, some of them making their first appearance in Italy, without having to travel around the planet, an easy undertaking to bring them all together. at the same time – he remembers – Our superstars are in fact in great demand by theaters all over the world “.

“A gala that serves above all to convey a very clear message in this moment of profound divisions in which nationalisms, fanaticisms, xenophobias, political and religious conflicts, social unrest are re-emerging – specifies Cipriani – in which we are fighting a war that touches us closely, while a sinister danger looms over the world. We must continue to pursue what unites, not what divides. Les Étoiles, after all, are a hymn to harmony among the peoples of our planet. Harmony, precisely of the stars – he concludes- of which the great dance becomes the bearer, even presenting itself as a model of a society and a world that is not only ideal “.
