In loving memory
T his year has been very cruel for many we know; for us as well. In June we lost two women who had been very important to us and to KIT. 

Mamma io e Stefano
On June 5th, my mother Maria Luisa Zucchetti left us. I am honoring her publicly simply because without her there wouldn't be KIT. She was part of KIT first steps and she remained KIT first fan. She was always there to applaude and to give advices when needed. She was sweet and very wise, a combination that made many of us better people and artists. 

We will continue to celebrate her through our work and commitment in bringing the best of Italy around the world. I am sure she will be very happy and proud to see what the future already holds for us.

Lydia Biondi
On June 14, Lydia Biondi, actress, teacher and KIT friend, passed away. She was an amazing talent and a generous person. Lydia started her career with Pier Paolo Pasolini, continued with the Mummeschanz and then worked with the most important directors in theater, opera, TV and Cinema. 

She honored KIT by being part of two different projects: Sister, Cousin, Aunt by Dave Johnson in Rome and No Escape from Dino Buzzati in New York. 
KIT will forever celebrate them and all the wonderful people, like the Baronessa Zerilli-Marimo', who believed in us and made our company a better, strong reality.
