November’s issue of La Freccia: Tales of autumn

On the cover: Edoardo Leo, in theatres with Ti racconto una storia

Rome, 2 November 2023

November's issue of La Freccia features tales of autumn — never boring companions that tell stories of life, dreams and hopes. Starting with that of the character on the cover, actor and director Edoardo Leo, who is about to embark on a one-year stint in theatres with the show Ti racconto una storia but does not forget the cinema, with the dubbing of the cartoon Leo and a film due for release in early 2024.

We then continue with singer-songwriter Edoardo Bennato, who at the age of 77 is in theatres with the Le vie del rock sono infinite tour starring Arturo Brachetti and Diana Del Bufalo from the musical Cabaret, the multifaceted singer-songwriter Venerus and Tedua, a record-breaking rapper thanks to his album La Divina Commedia, on tour all over Italy until 13 December, with a series of concerts that can be reached by Frecciarossa, the official train of the tour. Finally, Ettore Prandini, at the helm of Coldiretti since 2018, talks about his continuous dialogue with members from the farming world.

The destinations recommended this month are also perfect for autumn. We start with five itineraries from north to south, ideal to immerse yourself in the deep shades of the foliage amidst vibrantly coloured mountains, beech forests and vines. We then move on to the truffle trail, from the Piedmontese Langhe to the Sicilian mountains, among international fairs, gourmet specialities and the secrets of the truffle hunters, then arrive in the Valtellina, ready to host the 2026 Milano Cortina Winter Olympics and Paralympics, which are back in Italy after 20 years.

From 4 to 10 December, Milan will also host the last stage of the most important international tournament dedicated to padel, which sees Frecciarossa as its main partner.

On to discover Italy's main archaeological sites, made even more accessible thanks to new layouts, special routes and tactile panels for people with disabilities.

As for the cultural section, we go to Genoa and Rome with two exhibitions dedicated to Italo Calvino on the 100th anniversary of his birth, to Florence to discover the disturbing works of Anish Kapoor, to Milan for snapshots from the most remote places in the world signed by Jimmy Nelson, and back to Rome with the images of Helmut Newton, the Berlin photographer who revolutionised fashion shoots.
