Grand Ball Risorgimentale
Società di Danza

In the Caserma Cernaia to experience the atmosphere of the Italian Risorgimento, Saturday 10 September 2011, we present the "Grand Ball Risorgimentale"
directed by maestro Fabio Mòllica of the cultural association "Società di Danza", that promotes the research, diffusion and historical dance knowledge.
The Grand Ball Risorgimentale is proposed by the Provincia di Torino, in collaboration with the Arma dei Carabinieri and with the artistic direction of the
association Società di Danza directed by Fabio Mòllica.

The Grand Ball Risorgimentale is a tribute to the history and to the founding values of the Italian society,
whose roots are in the democratic and liberal culture of the Risorgimento.
Citizens celebrated the victories of the Risorgimento movement and the ideals of freedom, justice and progress with a series of Grand Balls
inside theaters and private palaces.
Social dances include quadrilles, waltz, polka, mazurka, march and contredance, and they will be coordinated by dancing master Fabio Mòllica.

In the historical caserma Cernaia, gently offered by the Arma dei Carabinieri, the Grand Ball celebrates the 'dancing Unification of Italy',
with the participation of about 300 dancers in 19th century dresses, coming from all over Italy. logo.gif

The Grand Ball Risorgimentale starts at 17, public entrance from 16 in Via Cernaia 23.

The historical Caserma Cernaia is the headquarter of the Scuola Allievi (Training School) dell'Arma dei Carabinieri, it is named after
a victorious battle of the Crimean War, and was built on the grounds of the Citadel of Turin, an ancient fortress dismantled to make way
for urban expansion. Furter information (in Italian)
