Atlantyca Entertainment, through its Atlantyca Live division, has secured a deal with Italy’s luxury spa & wellness destination, Aquardens Thermal Park (Pescantina, Verona) for the creation of a Hello Maestro: Once Upon a Time… Life immersive family fun spa experience for a children dedicated corner.
