FORUM "Children's Theatre in Italy"

Insights into the state of the Italian theatre for children, in collaboration with ARTI (Association of Italian Theatre Networks), which will explore two central themes to be discussed with all the stakeholders of this sector:
- the strategic importance of the Children's Theatre for the cultural growth of communities, not only in terms of development of new audiences, but above all for the high social value that active participation in theatre activities entails for the younger generations;
- the resources and attention that MIBAC and MIUR, the Regions and the Local Authorities devote to this sector in connection with the development of the entire cluster of the Children's Theater.
