I would like to congratulate you and the team on a fantastic weekend of Commedia. In my mind it was a great success and that was heralded even more by the ability to have Antonio there, as well as such an amazing group of presenters from all over the country, including yourself. The few people I knew who also attended the weekend have all walked away raving about it and already discussing what might be possible for next years festival, not to mention the wonderful networking opportunity it presented for delegates from around the country.
I think the seeds have been sown for something truly spectacular for the future. It is not every festival, run from a small-ish country town, that can attract a national attendance in its first year. You should all be proud of the results.
It is fantastic that Italian week was willing to absorb the festival as part of its own and hopefully that will assist in marketing opportunities in years to come.
I wait with baited breath for the dates of next years festival program.
