Upon entering, the words of Strehler saying that a theater is like a churchcame to my mind. Well, I want the Umberto Giordano Theatre to become as a lay church, a place to be a meeting and moral, social and civil datum point for the entire city. My intention is to let it return a place where the local community can meditate, express themselves, work and share experiences and professional opportunities. Foggia deserves to be brought again into national prominence and we will work hard for thatMichele Placido
