Theatrical workshops and training activities
Along with the production of shows, La Baracca – Testoni Ragazzi organises workshops for children and young people. The theatrical workshops are conceived for being carried out at school or with the children’s family, and they represent a place of free expression. They are a place where the participants can tell the others something about themselves, and where they can explore different ways of listening to themselves and the others.
It was thanks to such activities that they could realise projects such as “Cantamaggio”, a three-day workshop for 100 young boys and girls who share a theatrical and artistic experience.
The company also organises training courses for teachers and educators, which include workshops, conferences and round tables.
Along with the Municipality of Bologna, the work of La Baracca - Testoni Ragazzi has been recognised and acknowledged by the Ministry of Culture since 1979 and by the Emilia-Romagna Region since 1982.
Since 2005, thanks to the Small size project, it has been supported by the European Commission.
