Centenario Giovanni Testori
Celebrating the “Giovanni Testori Centenary” one hundred years after Testori’s birth: an event organised and curated by the Giovanni Testori Association together with the Casa Testori Association, which manages his birthplace in Novate Milanese, now a cultural centre and venue for meetings and exhibitions. A rich schedule of cultural initiatives, theatre performances, exhibitions and events, running until May 2024, to promote the figure and literary work of Giovanni Testori, in Novate Milanese, in Milan and in other Italian cities.
Trenord is also taking part in the Centenary programme to commemorate the “writer-commuter”, the great narrator of the Milan crossed by the tracks of the Ferrovienord, who for years travelled around Lombardy on trains, and his strong bond with the train. Two initiatives are planned for 2023, with details coming soon: special runs between Milano Cadorna and Novate Milanese, with dramatised readings of texts from the works by Giovanni Testori (Testori Train); onboard readings of excerpts from the author’s works, chosen by travellers on some regular runs, with the participation of young actors.
Throughout the year for Trenord pass holders there will also be discounts for guided tours and exhibitions at Casa Testori and for some performances included in the Centenary programme taking place in various theatres around Milan.
