Once upon a time there was a tiny hill town in Tuscany that found a remarkable way to confront their issues – they turned their lives into a play. Spettacolo is a portrait of this 50-year-old tradition, where their piazza becomes their stage and every villager from 6 to 90 plays a part.

Spettacolo Diretto da Jeff Malmberg, Chris Shellen

Critics reviews

Theater is one of the most fleeting of arts — it's performed in the moment, and then it's gone — but these citizens have long, deep memories.

Yet they remind you that people are not attractions and their homes are not museums, even if the global economy, its casual tourists and rich speculators are determined to prove otherwise.
