I was was wondering how this would leave MaggioDanza, a company I had heard of but was not much familiar with. I was sad to learn it met its demise back in 2013. http://www.gramilano.com/2013/05/culture-crash-maggiodanza-ballet-company-axed-in-florence/

Going back to see the discussion I missed on this board, I was surprised that the last mention of the company here (as far as the search function revealed) was in 2011. Is this true? [My luck with the search button hasn't always been good.]
