Sit In Music is back!!!

Sit In Music is back! Come see us at Mare culturale urbano a Milanoin Milan, on Thursday, the 14th of December.

We are excited to get back on stage!
Although with a bit of nostalgia since our two historical members, Solenn Le Marchand and Alberto Stevanato (Grimoon), won’t be able to join us this time.

We are more than happy to introduce you to our new traveling companions : Marta Falsirollo and Ludovico Terzi.

One of the reasons that led us to our comeback was winning the SmartItUp announcement by SMartIt cooperative, thanks to wich we were able to improve our puppet show with new lights, equipment, soap bubbles and confetti!!

We look forward to seeing you all..
