The Festival

Racconti per Ricominciare is a multi-venue eco-friendly performing arts festival set in sites that are part of National Heritage, in Campania region, south of Italy.

Created by Vesuvioteatro, curated by the artistic directors Giulio Baffi and Claudio Di Palma, the festival presented its first edition from 25 June to 12 July 2020, the second edition from 28 May to 6 June 2021 and the third edition from May 26 to June 12.

Starting again from theatre, art and culture.

During the Festival, some of the most evocative locations in Campania are transformed into natural theaters for site-specific performances staged at sunset, in perfect symbiosis with the architecture and the scenery.

Performances are held mainly outdoors, for a limited audience and in full compliance with anti-covid measures, to continue enjoying arts and culture in safety.

The festival data

Conceived during the Italian lockdown in 2020, and realized right after that awful experience of solitude, fear and isolation, the Festival helped people to develop a new sense of community throughout an immersive experience of site-specific theatre monologues, it helped artists to return to the dignity of professional life and it helped many sites of National Heritage to finally reopen their doors to people.

It has involved, in its short lifetime, an important number of the show-business workers, public institutions and private foundations. Year after year, it increases its network and designs artistic and cultural actions to enhance local and national cultural heritage.

It is a beautiful festival. Wonderful locations, great actors, intense work. Excellent organization.

High quality initiative. We look forward for more. Well written playwrights interpreted by talented actors. Well done.

Thank you very much for the emotions you aroused in our children and for transporting us to a fantastic atmosphere.

Excellent artists, superlative staff. Everyone was enthusiastic and tireless in welcoming us to the different venues.

One of the most beautiful aspects of these performances is the level of engagement of the spectator in the location and with the actors.
