A theatre group affiliated with Pazzi Lazzi LLC under the artistic direction of Chiara Durazzini and Eleonora Francesca Cordovani. The group performs in Italian and specializes in staging shows by Italian playwrights. The actors are mostly Italian or fluent Italian speakers. Some of them are theater professionals while others come from widely different backgrounds, such as medical science, computer science, arts and humanities. To all of them, theatre is an exciting way to express their creativity and love for Italian culture and language.
The company consists of theater labs where participants learn and practice acting through drama exercises and games, improvisation, and experimenting with theatrical plays, as well as a repertoire of shows in Italian.
