    Diversamente a teatro

    For three years, from 2014 to June 2017, Diversamente a teatro offered a training and work placement opportunity in the theatre sector to a group of young people with disabilities without distinction in terms of contract or economic level compared to other workers in the sector.

    This initiative is inspired by international models and is a pilot project made possible thanks to the support of Fondazione UmanaMente. Thanks to Diversamente a teatro, this group of young people became an integral part of the organisational structure of the theatre. THE STAFF bar has become the space in which this project has found concreteness and offers them the opportunity to express their professionalism. Thanks to the contribution of the Cattolica Foundation, the Valle dei Laghi Theatre has become a place for cultural aggregation, social integration and experimentation.

    After the closure of the Valle dei Laghi Theatre in Vezzano, this opportunity disappeared. Hence the idea of Associazione Atti, Oasi Valle dei Laghi and our foundation to give continuity to the initiative.

    Chef a teatro and Lettori Olimpici are the natural continuation of this project. Over the years they have in fact found continuity and support thanks to a network of sensitive and shrewd partners.

    A project by ATTI, Comunità Valle dei Laghi, Fondazione Aida, Associazione Oasi.

    Realised with the support of Fondazione Cattolica Assicurazioni and Fondazione Umanamente.

    Discovering the Venetian villas and palaces of Verona

    Unknown villas, some of which have never been surveyed, stately homes built over the centuries close to the city, just outside the walls, buildings of immense historical and artistic value on which not enough has been reflected. What cultural model do they respond to? Did they have a function of only representation, of ostentation of their status and of Goldonian holiday? And above all, today, what is the state of conservation and enhancement of this ‘hidden’ heritage, incorporated in contemporary urban expansion?


    These are the themes addressed during the round table “Le Ville e i Palazzi storici di Verona e dintorni. Un patrimonio urbano e suburbano da ri-conoscere e ri-valutare” that was held in Verona on 6 and 7 December 2019. Also present during the event were the Councillor for Culture, Tourism, Youth Policies, Equal Opportunities Francesca Briani and the President of the 1st District – Historical Centre Giuliano Occhipinti.



    During the meeting there were authoritative guests in the scientific field such as Prof. Daniela Zumiani, Professor of History of Architecture at the University of Verona, on the topic “ Tra palazzo di città e villa suburbana: lo schifar la noia della rampante borghesia veronese (sec. XVII-XIX)”, Doctor Francesco Monicelli for a focus on the suburban villas of the Giusti family and unknown villas and Prof. Danilo Gasparini, professor of History of Agriculture and Food at the University of Padua who dealt with the topic entitled “Palladio’s minor daughters”. The Verona villas between prestige and oblivion. The programme includes guided tours by Prof. Daniela Zumiani.

    Social network: music and theatre against bullying


    To raise students’ awareness on the issue of bullying, that is the set of actions of prevarication by one or a few people against an individual, or a small group, which tends to damage the image, relationships or rights of the victim.

    The institutions

    The project involved a group of students from the Istituto Manzoni in Suzzara, the Liceo Artistico Giulio Romano and the Liceo Classico Virgilio in Mantua.

    The Course

    The students involved will take part in twelve itinerant meetings.

    Some of them will be led by Dr. Paolo Breviglieri, a psychologist from ASL of Mantova. His intervention aims to present the main characteristics of bullying, the actors involved, the complexity of relationships between adolescents and the risks to which the new social technologies expose us.

    The remaining lectures are given by Nicoletta Vicentini, director of Fondazione Aida who has been developing social theatre projects for young people for years, and the rapper Andrea Bagni.

    The students presented the results of their work on the 16th May 2015 at the Anselmi Theatre in Pegognaga.

    If you don’t want to lose track of the stories and collect feed-back, a dedicated Facebook page is online: SOCIAL NETWORK: music and theatre against bullying.

    Fundraising campaign for Teatro Onlife

    With the ongoing health emergency, theatres, as well as many other spaces of aggregation and culture, have closed leaving a huge void. Teatro Onlife wants to be a valid and structured alternative to the physical space of the theatre, a new way of doing and enjoying this art form, with the spectators at the centre.

    Which will also be useful when the theatres open.

    We will develop a specific software platform that will enable the theatre, and especially children’s theatre, to break the traditional patterns of representation and enter a new, innovative, virtual dimension.

    The project represents a challenge that Children’s Theatre is taking in combining three different subjects

    1. the actor with his performing and pedagogical action
    2. the audience, in particular the children’s audience, including children with disabilities
    3. the digital system

    The challenge is to keep alive and constant the denominator that makes a live performance a unique and interactive event, creating new audiences by meeting on a dedicated digital platform.

    How to support the project?

    • with a bank transfer or cheque benefiting of the Art Bonus (i.e. you will receive a tax credit equal to 65% of the donation)
    • through the crowdfunding campaign on GoFundMe

    How Teatro Onlife develops

    We will develop several innovative technologies. The ones that in 90 days will allow us to go on stage in a more structured way than the experiments done so far are:

    The creation of the web platform that will host the different virtual spaces (each one corresponds to a show).

    In order to create this platform, a team of experts will identify the Minimum Viable Product, that is, the tool that will allow us to identify the simplest version in terms of effectiveness and immediacy and that will offer the main functionalities (called “core”) of Teatro Onlife.

    At the same time, a web and app development team will focus on the creation of two other functional tools of the product: the app for children and the editorial platform.

    App development

    It will allow the spectators, children and young people with parents and grandparents, to interact during the show (with emoj, with predefined drawings, etc.). This phase will be followed by a team of people qualified in web development and app development. In this way the show will be able to use resources such as films, drawings, graphic elements or audio files that can then be reproduced and used by the actors and spectators. As the platform will be managed via multiple remote servers, shows can be run simultaneously with participants connected from any location. Parents will be able to set up their children’s accounts, book shows and monitor the progress of the shows via the website, while children will be able to access them via the tablet app.

    The online publishing platform

    Directors and actors will contribute to the creation of the palimpsest, i.e. the structured programming of events to take part in. This part consists of the:

    • virtual space with graphics, backgrounds and sounds, programming of visual and sound effects (we will animate the different virtual spaces)
    • broadcasting of the story on the day and at the times set by the schedule, execution of the storyboard and real-time management of interaction with the children.

    Who will do what?

    To carry out this phase, we will select a design team composed of a children’s theatre director, a child psychologist, a child illustrator, a web designer, a systems engineer and an organisational coordinator.

    With the development of these technologies, Teatro Onlife can go on stage.

    Realisation time

    90 days

    Planning start: 22 March 2021

    Experimentation in the summer period

    Platform launch in the 2021/2022 theatre season

    When will the public be able to use it?

    Teatro Onlife will become a permanent activity and structure that will complement more traditional theatre programming.

    Teatro Onlife performances will be available to the public from the 2021/2022 theatre season: we will coordinate in-person performances and Onlife events, which will be open to a wide, unrestricted audience.


    Teatro Onlife is a new and innovative way for children to experience theatre.

    It does not replace the in-presence experience. It complements it and will be an opportunity to look to the future!

    The role of Venetian Villas in the Great War

    The role of the Venetian Villas in the Great War is an initiative scheduled from the 11 April to the 23 May. In some of the Venetian villas you can learn about the role these gems played during the First World War. From administrative centres of agricultural production to summer residences of the Venetian nobility. Between the fifteenth and nineteenth centuries, many Venetian villas acquired new functions during the First World War, becoming headquarters for army corps, military hospitals and places of shelter.

    Four meetings are scheduled, respectively in Bassano del Grappa (Vicenza) – Villa Cà Erizzo Luca, Fumane (Verona) – Villa della Torre, Santa Maria di Sala (Venice) – Villa Farsetti, and Sedico (Belluno) – Villa Patt. Guided tours and a moment of in-depth analysis with readings and music to remember those days and reflect on the testimonies we have nowadays are scheduled for each event (free admission, booking required).

    Partners and collaborators

    Il ruolo delle Ville Venete nella Grande Guerra (The role of Venetian Villas in the Great War), an initiative organised by Fondazione Aida on a project by Prof. Gianni Moriani, with the support of the Veneto Region, as part of the programme for the commemorations of the centenary of the Great War, and Pixartprinting.

    The cow Casolina

    La Mucca Casolina (The cow Casolina) is a food education project which kicks off on 27 January at the Parona Primary School (Verona) and continues until May with 65 events in primary schools in the provinces of Vicenza, Treviso, Padua, Trento, Verona, Rovigo, Mantua and Brescia. The aim of the initiative is to tell children about the production chain of a cheese, its thousand-year old history and nutritional qualities.

    La Mucca Casolina (The cow Casolina) is a fairy tale that narrates the adventures of a poetess cow and her friends. The text is written by Pino Costalunga, a writer and director specialised in theatre for children, and co-artistic director of Fondazione Aida. Actor Gioele Peccenini narrates the tale in a workshop that will take place in the classroom, face to face with students and teachers. The educational path is completed by the didactic booklet illustrated by Sara Gitto, which will be distributed to children. In the booklet, the cow Casolina is accompanied by the various characters of “Happy Valley”: the dog Fido, the “salvanelli”, little elves from the Veneto folk tradition, Ettore the Cheese Maker and Prince Secondo. These likeable characters accompany the children on a discovery of the various stages in the production of Asiago DOP: from milking to maturing and curdling.

    The history of cheese making is one of the oldest in human history, and is even described in the Odyssey and in the Sumerian “Dairy Frieze”. It is a story handed down through the centuries and arrived around the year 1000 in the areas of the Asiago Plateau. In fact, to this fascinating tradition is linked the Asiago DOP cheese, between the provinces of Vicenza, Trento, Padua and Treviso.

    The initiative is promoted by Consorzio Tutela Formaggio Asiago with the collaboration of Fondazione Aida.

    The ABC – Brenner Motorway in the city

    How fast should I drive in the rain? What should I do when faced with a broken-down car? Who should I contact in an emergency? What are the best practices to follow when travelling on the road, especially on motorways?

    These are the objectives of L’ABC – l’Autostrada del Brennero in Città, the educational project of Autostrada del Brennero, carried out in collaboration with the Traffic Police, produced by Fondazione Aida and with the participation of the Tazio Nuvolari Museum, which will involve more than 2,500 students from secondary schools along the A22.

    Each stage will take place over the course of a morning and is divided into several moments:


    • viewing of Quando passa Nuvolari, a show with Jacopo Pagliari directed by Raffaele Latagliata, which recounts the intrepid adventures of the racing driver Tazio Nuvolari through the voice of his trusted mechanic
    • interactive workshop on road safety by Pino Costalunga, author, actor and director of children’s theatre.

    The topics covered by the workshop will be explored in depth thanks to the educational booklets produced for the project. This is a guide written by Pino Costalunga and illustrated by Tuono Pettinato, one of the most popular young comic strip authors.

    For some of the leg will be attended by the Traffic Police and Traffic Wardens which will be present with the supplementary didactic itinerary on the Pullman Azzurro and the Furgone degli Ausiliari, information stations where youngster will have the opportunity to directly understand what it means to travel in safety.
