He will connect the scenes and sketches from all the different countries, and as part of the event, we will also have live traditional Italian music.

Pantalone will lead the event in English, and all the monologues will be spoken in the artist’s native tongue. Or Grommelot. ….and as for Zanni – we have no way of knowing what he will do, or controlling him. We’ve tried.
