"We are really proud to present today this very rich program of shows for Summer 2021, comments the Councilor for Culture of the Municipality of Barberino Fulvio Giovannelli. We have taken advantage of the positive experience of 2020 and decided to relaunch, proposing a truly significant program, which will symbolically embrace the whole world of culture linked to shows.
We will bring again in the squares, in the parks, on the lake and in some unpublished glimpses of our territory shows and activities suitable for everyone, ideally recreating in this initiative, even the very idea of sharing and community.
For this, Giovannelli concludes, I feel I have to thank everyone from my heart. The commitment of the municipal administration will be to continue investing in culture, a fundamental tool for growth and cohesion of our Barberinese community, as well as in the various cultural initiatives that this pandemic has limited and which we hope to be able to resume as soon as possible ".
“The Renaissance begins with beauty - explain Riccardo Rombi and Emilia Paternostro, direction Catalyst | Teatro Corsini - is a festival open to different artistic disciplines and aimed at large audiences. Despite the complex condition due to the health emergency, we are about to launch this second edition of the summer festival to reiterate how necessary cultural activities are, not only because a large part of our national and regional economic system depends on them, but because they form a whole. of aesthetic values and ideas that facilitate social interactions and civil coexistence. Culture is not just a form of knowledge, but the ability to mix reason, imagination and emotions and find its expression in poetry and beauty. The Catalyst Association for its specificity of being a theatrical residence capable of inhabiting and renewing the potential of places, be they a theater hall, a square, a garden, the banks of a lake, launches a new challenge: four months of almost daily programming so that the theater returns to being a necessary common good.
