Great success due to good performance with readings Hon. Monica Baldi, President of the Association Pinocchio by Carlo Lorenzini, with the paintings of Caterina Balletti, European master of Flash Art in Pinocchio Forum and with the musical notes of the master Aldo Azzaro.

The paintings had been exhibited in September in Tuscany, Pisa and Capraia Limite, on the occasion of the ceremonies dedicated to the Carabinieri.

A number of the guests attending who have appreciated the interventions of Sen. Maria Burani Procaccini, Sen. Carlo Giovanardi, the Deputy Commanding General of the Carabinieri Gen. Ugo Zottin and Enio Drovandi actor, who starred with the Hon. Baldi some chapters taken from the tale of Pinocchio from which were inspired the two artists in each alternation between notes of color and musical notes.
The maestro Andrea Ceccomori on flute, host of the second evening, regaled the audience with vibrations touching two of his compositions created especially for the event and played together with the master Azzaro at the piano improvising an overture and a ballad on Chapter XXXVI concerning the transformation of Pinocchio puppet from a boy.
Greatly appreciated was the laboratory of flash art that was the focus on Thursday afternoon in the churchyard of the Church in Piazza della Minerva which was attended by many children who have brought home small paintings of Pinocchio paintings by themselves with the help of the master Balletti.
