Living the dialect


Franco Spazzi, a Milanese with local roots, is a painter, watercolourist and poet, who expresses himself mainly in the dialect of Lanzo, the birthplace of his parents. His friendship with Maria Corti was ancient and deep, and she was actively involved in his work, presenting and accompanying him on various occasions. In the setting of the garden, Franco Spazzi, introduced by Fabio Pusterla, read some of his poems, talked to the public and offered memories of the moments spent with Maria Corti.
