Before coming to Bologna for 8 days, I always wanted to attend anything in the wonderful Teatro Arena del Sole, and tonight that dream was fulfilled. Yesterday, purchased two Balcony tickets (€10,0 for over 60) to see Porcile. OK, when we purchased the tickets we had no ideal what this play was about. So in our down time this afternoon... More
