Having just returned from Italy we feel the urge to express our thanks to our Italian partners in AMAT for a very special and interesting intervention. It was a pleasure to watch the Italian group of elderly people engage in the activities facilitated by Alessandro Sciarroni. Activities, which have initiated many surprising discussions on the topic of aging. With the theatre as a medium – in the beautiful setting of the Persiani theatre in Recanati – we witnessed an intimate and humorous conclusion of the workshop which opened up for new perceptions of the theatre as a catalyst for discussions on societal issues. Bravo!
