I helped with the Slow Food Terra Madre in Vienna last fall. My job was to help make the group of vendors from Italy feel at home (I know, tough work, but someone’s got to do it!).

I spent a lot of time talking and eating with Andrea Falaschi from the Falaschi butcher shop in San Miniato. They host an annual “Jazz at the Macelleria” party at the butcher shop (macelleria means butcher shop in Italian) and this week I received this invitation for a puppet show from them … unfortunately I can’t attend but wish I could, their sausage and prosciutto are fantastic! The photo on the right is Andrea making a point, note the knife in his left hand …

DEAR FRIENDS,
The Sergio Falaschi’s Butcher, this year at the international exhibition of street theater “La Luna è Azzurra” in San Miniato, has decided to offer a show of puppetry, inspired by the Group ” Teatro a Dondolo” from Pisa, based oa reinterpretation of the Three Little Pigs story, inspired by the three figures of pigs raised in the wild state, the ones rised in the semi-wild state and the pink pig raised in stable. The show will be accompanied by a live musical performance, conceived for the occasion by “Bill Gorazde”.

During the the show, entitled ” I TRE PORCELLINI IN MACELLERIA” (The Three Little Pigs in the Butcher shop), a tasting of three different types of salami will be offered to the public: The Cinta Senese Dop (from pork raised in the wild), the Grey (from pork raised semi-wild state) and classic Tuscan salame with wine (from pink pig raised in stable). The salami tasting will be all accompanied by “Annick” and “Nicole” wines by Cosimo Maria Masini.

…….We kindly require adults to be accompanied by children………….

The evening event will be held on Thursday, June 24.
The performances will start at 21:15 and 22:15.
We are waiting for you!
