The numbers say why you love Spoleto: 73,000 tickets, 141 shows, 25 sell-outs, 12 venues, 450 ushers, 30,000 program books, 30 special events, 458 artists, and 50 journalists from media outlets all over the world. Oh, and one 27-foot-tall statue of Buddha (in Monkey: Journey to the West). Sometimes, it’s all about scale.
