Il teatro ai contadini

A short documentary on the meaning of cultural spaces in small communities.

We investigate the history of La Martella, a village built in the 1950s for local farmers and artisans, with an incredible theater / community space in the main square.

The theater was initially used and then abandoned. In the last year the space has been refurbished and now the community is wondering how to use this incredible opportunity.
