GelatoLove founder and I-Ching reader Paola Richard will briefly guide those who are curious through a philosophical map of past, present and future. I-Ching – the Book of Changes – was composed in Asia about 3,000 years ago. During the party, the ancient volume will be available to the public and interpreted by Paola in Italian and English. There will be sign up sheets.
