Music, puppets and lots of fun for the whole family will animate Cult Amélie, a completely free summer festival of creative and urban culture taking place at the Via Industria playground.

The one coming up promises to be a weekend of great conviviality for everyone thanks to Cult Amélie Pregassona. All 3 scheduled events will be free of charge and will be held at the Casetta Amélie at the playground in Via Industria, where one can also enjoy cool drinks, ice cream and snacks in company.

It starts on Friday 21 July at 8:00 pm with Il Mondo delle Marionette (The World of Puppets), a show suitable for the whole family in which Gioacchino Lo Nardo will immerse the spectator in the compelling stories and lives of the characters of his magnificent puppets.

Then, on Saturday 22 July at 8:00 pm, it will be the turn of Viaggio musicale nelle (e)migrazioni nello spazio e nel tempo. An evening dedicated to migration, in which the well-known musician Marco Zappa will perform pieces from his repertoire and from the historic popular repertoire of Italian singer-songwriters (Francesco Guccini, Ivano Fossati among others). Moderator Stefano Vassere will counterpoint the songs with news on the historical migrations that have affected the Alpine arc and Italian-speaking Switzerland in particular, as well as more recent ones that see countless individuals choosing to move to seek their fortune in often distant lands.

Furthermore, the week will resume on Monday 24 July at 9.30 am with a final appointment, Body and mind with Romina Curcio, dedicated to psychophysical exercises for the body and mind.


  • In the event of rain and strong winds, the events will be cancelled
