In 2001 he created the project “Un Paese all’Opera”, an initiative which saw the collaboration between professional artists, local authorities, local production companies, volunteers and children. The project united all citizens in the creation of operas and multidisciplinary shows, in order to encourage young people to revive the tradition of melodrama and Italian vocality, which was so rooted in Emilia-Romagna in previous generations. Furthermore, the project also had the objective of enhancing the spaces of the territory, also offering people with physical and/or economic fragility free access to culture, without having to go to theaters which often present themselves as places of difficult enjoyment for those who live in small towns and for those with reduced economic possibilities. The “Un Paese all’Opera” project was presented in various places in Italy and in 2012 received the dedicated medal from the President of the Italian Republic.
