Father Gian Carlo Michelini came to Taiwan from Italy in 1964, and founded the Lan Yang Dancers in 1966. In 1974 he took his dancers on an international tour, on which they became the first performing arts group ever to perform for the Pope in the Vatican. He was also an important contributor to the founding of the Yi­lan International Children’s Folklore and Folkgame Festival, and has helped bring the world to Taiwan by inviting numerous international performing arts companies to perform here.
