Shakespeare in Italy

Shakespeare in Italy seeks to enhance experience and international understanding of the works of Shakespeare and in particular appreciation of the influence of the Italian Renaissance, culture and philosophers on all his writing.

The Company aims to explore this with actors and artists through performance in the UK, Italy and beyond, as well as via a programme of education and outreach.

Shakespeare in Italy was founded by two former Royal Shakespeare Company actors, Julian Curry and Mary Chater in association with the Italian theatre manager, Sandro Pascucci.  Their aim was to create opportunities to explore - through performance and workshops with people young and old – the important influence of Italian culture on Shakespeare and his writing. 

The Company is now working to form permanent relationships with theatres both in the United Kingdom and Italy.  It also plans to work with British and Italian educational institutions and community groups, particularly those for whom English is their second language.

testimonials

We had hard-bard types there—everyone was just eager to learn/experience—very well done; my head was hopping and ready to go daily. I thought the pace was beneficial for learners. I need no time for shopping; I can do that at home. I also enjoyed the variety of ages, genders, ideas.

Bill's session at Cagli theatre had us presenting scenes from the play and that was very successful. It is such a special thing to work on a stage.
