Beppe Vessicchio then revealed: “I’m honest: I won’t miss directing at the Festival but rather I will miss not being able to be in that place and in that very weekwhere conviviality with colleagues, meetings, exchanges of opinions, predictions and behind-the-scenes chatter have for many years marked a celebration to be shared with the many enthusiasts of this work”.
Finally, the Maestro concluded: “It is an affectionate game that was created online and which all the other media then reverberated. There will be other cards on the tablenew things, more will come up and… life goes on.”
