"Schabernack are actors, musicians, directors, photographers, clowns... and they are only two!

They live and work, with their dog Nelli, in Montelaterone, a small beautiful village in south Tuscany.

Here they combine art with rural life, promoting every kind of artistic thing you could imagine: painting residencies, street theatre, poetry reading, clowning...

With their red noses and their tractor they crossed Europe from Germany to Italy, bringing poetry and love for life, and lot of fun.

It happened 30 years ago. And it is still happening"
