Visit by Mario Pirovano 26th September 2010

Francis The Holy Jester

A remarkable piece of Italian theatre came to the Commemoration Hall Huntingdon on Sunday 26th September 2010.

Francis The Holy Jester is about the life of Saint Francis of Assisi and was performed by Mario Pirovano who told the tale bringing together cardinals, popes, courtiers, generals and peasants, saints and sinners and Jesus himself in a great pageant of characters.

Mario who is from the Italian town of Gubbio delighted the audience with his performance.

The evening’s performance was given as a gift by the town of Gubbio to the citizens of Huntingdon & Godmanchester.
