In order to reach her aim, Befana can rely on very special assistants: poor children from all over the world, from Africa, from Asia, from South America, from Russia. This is the plot of this show with actors, puppets and animated foam rubber dolls, inspired by the ancient Italian traditions about Befana. A show that will make children have fun, and will make adults think.
