Mario Dall'Asta

Sono Mario Dall'Asta, ho diciassette anni e sono uno studente della classe 4^G del Liceo A. Calini. La mia più grande passione è la scrittura: mi dedico a racconti, riflessioni e poesie di ogni genere, sono stato direttore del giornalino d'istituto per un anno e da alcuni mesi scrivo anche per un magazine distribuito a livello nazionale. Inoltre, mi piace leggere (soprattutto classici) e ho recitato per diversi anni in una scuola di teatro. Mi è già capitato di partecipare, direttamente e non, alla realizzazione di un booktrailer, tra cui "L'Anello di Re Salomone" con mia sorella Mirella Dall'Asta e mia cugina Francesca Pich, ma non mi sono mai cimentato nell'impresa personalmente. In ogni caso, mi sento davvero onorato di questa opportunità, e spero che il festival torni al più presto dal vivo con la premiazione al teatro sociale!
