"Francesco the Man of God" comes from an idea of the Pianist and Singer Baritone Claudio Mattioli, the show is at once theatrical, lyrical and operatic - defined as "lyrical cabarét".
The show, written in collaboration with the friars of Assisi, was scripted and performed by Claudio Mattioli on original texts by Barbara Zanasi.
