Zoom Lecture Series

On the Italian Stage is a series of encounters conceived and led by Laura Caparrotti (Artistic Director, Kairos Italy Theater) that journeys into the history of Italian Theater to explore its language, and its contribution to Italian society and world theater.
Participation is free. RSVP is MANDATORY. The Zoom link will be provided on the day of the event.
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

To end a year dedicated to traveling theater, this event will explore the locations and the means of transportation for those Italian theater artists who traveled from town to town or around the globe. From carts to temporary stages, from cars to ships, nothing stopped actors from touring even when conditions weren’t at all safe. You will discover several kinds of theaters while traveling (no pun intended) through the ages.
