In this sixth edition Ambrose Sparagna pays particular attention to the public of the deaf. A large and complex community, which often are denied information and culture barriers that seem insurmountable. To involve the beauty of making music together this part of the spectacle of humanity Chiarastella use the visual channel and gestural LIS( Italian Sign Language) interpreters who will translate through the contents of popular songs using a special gesture interpretation. Along with a hundred and fifty musicians and singers singers on stage “sing” with their signs so many young people of the Institute for the Deaf in Rome with the coordination of Laura Santarelli.

A great show with so many actors among which the intense and passionate voice of Peppe Servillo and the narrator of the poet Davide Rondoni.
