The international “Cruzando Fronteras” Festival will take place from 18 to 24 February 2013. The event aims to bring Italy and Mexico closer together through culture, the ethos of territory and an innovative concept of tourism. The Festival was introduced at the Foreign Ministry in Rome in the presence of Renzo Sicco (artistic director of Turin’s Assemblea Teatro), Marcio Giomini (Head of the Ministry’s Office for the Countries of Central America and the Caribbean), and Gabriel Rosenzweig (Embassy of Mexico in Italy).
A homage to a country with whom we enjoy extraordinarily good relations, says Terzi
A message from Minister Terzi was read out during the press conference. “The Festival”, said the Minister, “is a valuable initiative that is a homage to a country with which we have always enjoyed extraordinarily good relations. A relationship that has been further strengthened by events like this one, which brings together the cultures of our two nations in a concrete manner”.
The Festival will take place in Mahahual and Chetumal, two towns on Mexico’s Caribbean side near the border between the state of Quintana Roo, in the southernmost tip of the Yucatan Peninsula, and Belize. The programme will feature performers of the calibre of Paco Ignacio Taibo II, Concita De Gregorio and Pino Cacucci and a number of Italian artists.
