Everyone knows the life and operas of Giacomo Puccini. But how much do you know about his multifaceted skills as a creator, playwright, set designer and director, and above all of the importance of his stagings?
The answers are in the book by Paola Massoni entitled Giacomo Puccini. Nato per il teatro. Presentation on Saturday 18 September at Villa Bottini, Piano Nobile.
