From 9 am to 5 pm in the Piazzale Nord, many wood artists coming from all over Italy will enchant people creating wood carvings in front of the public. A special occasion to discover different artistic methods and interpretations, observing how to use wood to express emotions and how to work it with some “unconventional” tools.

The artist  of the chainsaw Barbara Brisiu, from Borgo San Dalmazzo, will be present along with turners, modellers, sculptors, with the special participation of the Technical Schools San Carlo di Boves and the master craftsman Aldo Pellegrino, who will be the special guest of the event.

To anticipate the weekend it will be the ballroom dancing evening with Angelo and Marzia, scheduled on Thursday 25th July at 9 pm in Piazza del Municipio. In case of bad weather, the evening will take place in the school amphitheatre.

On Friday 26th July in the Library at 5 pm there will be “Limone in Rosa Passeggiata tra libri ed emozioni”, a special tour through books and emotions, organised by Vanda Chiappero and Federica Faccaro. Free admission. At 5.30 pm in Piazza del Municipio you will enjoy the live creation of handmade soap, in collaboration with the Saponificio Rose&Caprioli. During the evening a double appointment is scheduled at 9 pm the Teatro Alla Confraternita will host the first concert of the Limone Classica  with the young talented students of the Conservatorio Ghedini Cuneo; while always at 9 pm, in the Chiesa del Convento, will take place the music and words recital “La storia di Miriam”, written and directed by Federica Faccaro.
