From 21 to 27 July, in the splendid setting of the Castle of Alvito, in Valle di Comino, the first edition of Castellinaria - Festival di Teatro Pop will debut. The initiative is conceived and promoted by the Habitas Company in collaboration with Ivano Capocciama and with the patronage of the Lazio Region, the Province of Frosinone and the Municipality of Alvito.
The fortress of Alvito is in effect a castle suspended in the air, which dominates the village and the valley from the top of the hill. The name Castellinaria plays on a double meaning. On the one hand there is the desire to design, to explore new forms of sharing, to dream big.
On the other hand, the way to say castles in the air is resumed, but turned in a positive way. It starts from a solid base, from a castle that already exists. The Castle of Alvito is a real fortress that seems to float above the Valle di Comino. The Castellinaria festival is an opportunity to draw a bridge between contemporary theatrical energies and local realities, create a synergy and a new community.
The initiative stems from the desire to animate and enhance the territory of the Valle di Comino through the new drama and live performance. In constant dialogue with the territory, Castellinaria connects farms and wineries with music and theater, enhancing a unique set of culture, art and flavors, typical of the place.
Throughout the duration of the event, every evening, starting at 19.00, the village of the castle will be animated by food and wine stands, tables under the stars, traditional games for adults and children. After the shows, the stands will remain open and the evening will continue with the music.
