Your Name Among The Rich And Famous That Sponsor La Scala

Beatrice Lessi

Who Are They?

Would you like your name written among those who sponsor the world famous Teatro alla Scala in Milan? If you are like me, you sometimes go to the “thank you” section of beautiful and glamorous events, where names and surnames of those who made it possible by donating is shown – I am alway quite curious about these mysterious people who love culture and have money to sponsor it. It’t normally a mix of institutional entities, private people and companies.

To Whom Does The Money Go?

From here to the 31 August you can do it too and in a very achievable way (starting from 20 Euro), to help the young talents on Teatro La Scala, selected about the best young people in Italy and worldwide.

Paola Bisi, Communication Manager for the theatre’s Academy, Accademia la Scala, who is extremely passionate about art, education and her talented Academy students, personally asked me to advertise this initiative. I am very happy to do that!

Donations are  collected to provide 127 scholarships to educate young set designers, tailors, dancers, musicians, and solo and choir singers enrolled at La Scala Academy.
