  • Conceived on the occasion of the centenary of the birth of Gianni Rodari.
  • The result of a unique productive effort that involved the most active realities in the Saluzzo area that deal with musical education: from primary and secondary schools, the Suzuki School, up to the Conservatory.
  • The rereading of the Rodarian character of Giovannino allowed Elio Galvagno to do a great educational work on listening, memory, awareness of his own body, the behavior of the child in the relationship with others: all the founding principles of “philosophy” rodarian.


The operina was first performed on 5 June 2022 in Saluzzo at the Jazz Visions festival.
