About our host Mattia Berto:
Mattia Berto is an actor, director and artistic director. Most of his productions take place in his beloved city: Venice. He was artistic director at Dario Fo Theatre in Camponogara, and he’s currently artistic director at Teatrino Groggia, Venice. The latter represents a unique experience of urban regeneration of the area.
The strong conviction that the theatre must be an instrument of social investigation as well as a place for the community, has recently brought Mattia to theorise his “Teatro di Cittadinanza” (“Theatre of Citizenship”), which, in sinergy with Teatro Stabile del Veneto, has helped revitalise various areas of the city.
In this new idea of total inclusion and sharing, citizens of all ages and backgrounds become actors.
One of Mattia’s projects, “Teatro in Bottega” (“Theatre in the Shop”) has also been presented in Florence and Cortina D’Ampezzo.
The project has been selected by Feltrinelli for the TV format “We are culture”, directed by Giuseppe Carieri, focusing on the talents who create culture from scratch.
Mattia’s Teatro di Cittandinanza has been selected by the UK Pavilion at Biennale Architettura 2019 with its performance “Tempesta la Resa dei Conti”.
In recent years Mattia has been experimenting with video – shooting a number of documentary films in the most diverse settings: spanning from the islands of the Venice lagoon to local prisons, from the streets to high-end boutiques – never losing his curiosity, generosity and passion for life, which he’s crazy in love with.
