ON THE ITALIAN STAGE | Casa Italiana Zerilli / Marimò


On the Italian Stage is a series of encounters conceived and led by Laura Caparrotti that journeys into the history of Italian Theater to explore its language, and its contribution to Italian society and world theater.
It may include special readings and performances by members of Casa Italiana’s Theater Company in Residence – KIT Kairos Italy Theater – and other guest artists.

Participation is free.

Please note: Casa Italiana hosts but does not interfere with the programming choices of the lectures. For all information, please contact the coordinator of the lecture series, Laura Caparrotti, at [email protected].
