2-In San Paolo, Brasil, Andrea will be one of the members of a company composed of artists belonging to different theater companies and from different parts of Italy, will perform theatrical workshops and shows in various locations of San Paolo.
The idea of the project by mentioning the creator of the Marco Renzi Project:
"the thought that animates and supports the project is very simple and wants to remind us that every child of this world, whatever the latitude to which it lives, religion and political faith in which
they believe he and his family have the right to play, to affection, to education and to that thing wonderful that we call childhood, so we went and for this we will continue to do so".
Within the two projects Andrea will realize: Circus workshops, clowning shows and laughter yoga sessions.
