"Once upon a time, a tiny town in Tuscany turned its life into a play..."

Several decades ago, a tiny town perched on a hill in Tuscany came up with a unique solution to the problems they were facing. They got together and worked on turning their lives into a play, allowing them to creatively and openly talk about issues and create resolutions. The singular experiment soon became a tradition that continues to this day. Every year, for the past 50 years, their piazza becomes their stage and villagers from 6 to 90 play a part - the role of themselves. This process has brought to light various struggles and challenges they face, both as individuals and as a collective community. In this village theatre isn’t just art, it’s a way of life.
