MARCOVALDO IN WINTER by ITALO CALVINO
storytime and creative paper cutting
28th February 2021
Marcovaldo is an enchanting collection of stories that are both melancholy and funny, farce and fantasy. Calvino charts Marcovaldo’s struggles to reconcile country habits with urban life, combining comical disasters with a surrealistic view of city life through the eyes of an outsider. As Marcovaldo chases his dreams, we are taken on a journey to recognise our own yearnings for reason, adventures and escapades.
Read by Isabelle Townsend, an actress who has created an interactive theatre pro- ject in English for French schools, performed with Irina Brook’s theatre company and currently working on a documentary based on ‘The Postman of Nagasaki’.
