On October 12 in Mantova, sold out for the recital of Eleonora Buratto – the Italian soprano who is singing in the most prestigious theaters in the world – and the pianist Nazzareno Carusi. The charity event was in favor of the association for Debra Children Alto Adige.
The two artists have proposed a program with classic opera arias and romances of Francesco Paolo Tosti and Franco Alfano.
