“Last year we realized our dream of bringing the air of International Festivals to our small Teatro di Bagno a Ripoli, where we have been enthusiastically participating for over twenty years. We had the joy of seeing the warm participation of a very heterogeneous public, many people from different cultures, many families with children, aspiring actors who participated in our Master classes but also spectators intrigued by the proposals of foreign companies. A week in which every evening the theater was full of people who were not only "spectators" but were "participants" of our Festival and each one contributed to its success. How not to recreate this magical atmosphere? "
The companies that will alternate throughout the week on the stage come from Morocco, Russia, distant Siberia and the nearby Tuscany, but everyone will have the common denominator of the ability to know how to communicate to the whole family. Many languages used such as pantomime, clowning, the commedia dell'arte. We will see classic texts, fairy tales and unpublished stories. Various proposals to succeed in transmitting the love for the theater to spectators from 0 to 100 years. Also for this edition all the Festival performances will be free !
To embellish this intense week, the guests of the artistic world will alternate in the jury of honor. Daniela Morozzi, Alessandro Riccio, Doretta Boretti, Andrea Stella, Carlo Terzo, Sonia Sestini, Alla Zorina will be with us .
