A Sunset Theatre Festival in Magnificent Campania region

Racconti per Ricominciare is a captivating festival of itinerant performances set at sunset, immersing audiences in the magnificent sites of Campania’s cultural heritage.

Conceived and realized by the Vesuvioteatro Association, under the artistic direction of Claudio Di Palma and artistic coordination of Giulio Baffi, the festival has garnered national and international acclaim since its inaugural edition in 2020.

A Tale of Restart and Community

Born during the 2020 lockdown (due to pandemic), Racconti per Ricominciare symbolizes not only a rebirth for the artists and cultural sites involved, but also an opportunity for the audience to reconnect with the community through art and culture.

Each edition of the festival continues to grow, engaging more people and contributing to the enhancement of local and national cultural heritage.

Environmental Sustainability and Cultural Discovery

This festival stands out for its focus on environmental sustainability, transforming the picturesque Campanian sites into natural stages.

Performances take place at sunset, without amplification or artificial sets, seamlessly integrating with the surrounding landscapes and architectures.

Simultaneously, it encourages the discovery of historical and artistic treasures of the region, often hidden from the public eye.

Narrating the Present through Theatre

The theatrical journeys of the festival draw inspiration from the contemporary dramaturgical universe, presenting selected or commissioned stories for the occasion.

This unique approach allows the audience to immerse themselves in narratives that reflect our time, enriching the artistic experience.

An Engaging and Accessible Format

During the 10 days of the festival, the audience can attend itinerant performances of about an hour, consisting of different stories performed at various outdoor points of the monumental sites.

This unique format enables spectators to experience immersion and simultaneously explore the historical and cultural heritage of the region.
