Viva i burattini (Long live the puppets!) is a group of Italians who play for kids. I was on holiday in Milan last summer and I saw Flavio Collicelli in the parc, playing for the Italian kids. Fantastic to see the interaction between them and Flavio which was very lively. A great inspiration for this cameriere pazzo!
