The Story to live Together

In 1889, King Umberto I and Prime Minister Francesco Crispi came to Lecce to inaugurate some important monuments. To celebrate the memory of this historic event, the Associazione Dimore Storiche Italiane asked Fabio to put together a group of passionate volunteers to coordinate the production of an article and the preparation of a commemorative aperitif.

Fabio is waiting for you in Piazza Carducci, bring all your motivation together with lots of curiosity and creativity.
