The Festival will take the visitor inside the culture and the millennial traditions of this charming country. Walking through the pavilion will be like traveling through India: one will be able to experience the flavors of the traditional cuisine, local handicrafts, art exhibits, traditional music, martial art demonstrations and choreographies of the seven Indian dances; the visitor will learn about the secrets of the traditional make-up and essential oil massages; there will be henna tattoo showcases and fashion shows displaying ancient and modern saris, which can all be enjoyed while tasting the fine Indian tea.
Ancient fables and fairy tales by the unique dreaming atmosphere will be told for the children. The Indian spirituality will be the subject of forums and discussions among scientists, artists, philosophers and gurus from all over the world. The Festival will also host the first Italy-India economic meeting, with the participation of Indian Government officials.
On March 28th, the Festival will close with the ‘Bollywood Love Story’ musical, a story about dreams that unfolds through the engaging rhythms of the latest Bollywood trend.
