Giovedì 25 aprile il Piazzone di Viareggio torna a vivere. Dalle 20,30 di fronte al Caffè Irene musica, poesia e piccole arti di strada per rivivere il mercato aperto come luogo di scambio e aggregazione. Tra suggestioni swing, poesia civile, incursioni nella letteratura nostra (Viani e Tobino)… una sana passione ci fa dire che anche questa è Liberazione!
