VolterraTeatro wants to build a "new world", involving philosophers, economists, scientists, men of knowledge together with new play writers and the audience to create a possible new world profile.
Volterrateatro becomes Third Millennium Agorà, heart of the city and of the free exchange of ideas and experiences, where people can meet and develop relationships. A place where there are no differences of age, race and religion, but the need to find the great ideals once more and to harmonize them to our time.
We think that there are in different field, people and ideas that work in the same direction and have to find a common place where audience can meet and know them. During my eighteen years-experiences in prison with my collaborators, we have been proving the possibility to change a very severe prison through our artistic action.
This make us hope, that something concrete can still be done.
We would be pleased to meet you in this third Millennium Agorà.
We wait for you.
