L’importanza di essere piccoli – a Festival produced by Sassiscritti



This a-typical but really interesting Festival had its first edition  in 2011, following a central idea: bringing together songwriters and poets in the small villages of the Apennines between Pistoia and Bologna. From this core, has developed what seems a little miracle: each edition was followed by hundreds of people, bringing  together not only artists, but also people from all over Italy, associations, local tourist, administrations … All in a deep listening and in a perfect harmony with the three elements at the center of this festival: the poetic word, music, and nature.
