From Legnano to Rio. The funniest Italian family does Brasil!


The theatrical company I Legnanesi was born in 1949, in an oratory of Legnano,
The exclusively male nature of the company is due to an ancient ecclesiastical ban that prevented to women to act with men, so that women’s roles were interpreted by the same male actors in disguise, talking in the Legnanese dialect.
The company became famous and performed in mayor theaters, gaining great popularity and winning several awards.ilegnanesi2017_icolomboviaggiatori_foto4phangeloredaelli
