“When in 1995 I was proposed to direct the School of Theater of the City of Marsala, I put a precise condition: I need an intelligent, generous and rigorous artist, who could help me to cooperate with me in the coordination of the needs of the school. I was introduced to Massimo Pastore, pianist and composer, passionate about theater, greatly attentive to culture … In a year of a great work dedicated to the Shepherd School, he has exceeded my expectations. He gave a lot to all of us: the city, the students, myself “.
