“Inteatro, festival of. One of the most remarkable moments in the european festivals setting. The basic idea is to make a theatre where and with whom the community could live. A theatre which is conceived as a place or, better, as a contamination of places and languages: every year in July the urban space of Polverigi becomes a stage, the place for theatre and for the community, getting toghter and than overlapping, in a complete artistic freedom. Courtyards, shops, squares, houses are enlivened by music, dance, theatre, with an high level of transdisciplinarity” [Dictionary of XX century performing arts] (by Felice Cappa e Piero Gelli, Edited by Baldini & Castoldi, Milan 1998)
