Fabio Mastrangelo reads Gelsomino nel paese dei bugiardi by Gianni Rodari

“Once upon a time, in the heart of the city, there was a huge library in a building called Brera. One day the library began to read.”

Fabio Mastrangelo is the art director of the St. Petersburg Music Hall State Theatre and the main conductor of its two orchestras.

Gianni Rodari (1920-1980) was one of Italy’s best-loved writers of children’s books. In 1951 he published his first book of nursery rhymes and Le avventure di Cipollino, a book that was successfully translated into Russian. His work is known and loved by all Russians born after World War II through the translations of the poet Samuil Marshak and the linguist Julia Dobrovolskaja. Rodari began to be read and appreciated in Italy only years later.
