babello fest - eventi

On Sunday, June 2, Novello turns into Babello!

We party to be together, we stay together to understand each other.

Babello Fest wants to give space to different “languages and arts” by experimenting with the possibilities of sharing places and living together while maintaining individuality.

Babello Fest aims to be a family-friendly day of celebration for all and sundry.

Babello Fest is inspired by the Mokmentary filmed by the Colletivo Pan crew for the Piedmont Documenteur Film Festival.
