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.
