A place for creative making in an area where ​​multipurpose facilities are lacking. This is the challenge won by Officina E.S.T. - Experiments On the Territory, a permanent laboratory on the artistic and historic sites that animates theatrical spaces in the eastern province of Rome, from Tivoli to Subiaco. The workshop encourages attendance at cultural venues such as libraries and museums, also opening spaces to the public, for the citizens.
 
The Officina E.S.T. revived the Teatro Comunale di Arsoli, closed for years for a restoration, the former space slaughterhouse in Anticoli Corrado, experimentally managed by people under 35; the Rooca di Subiaco, with the initiative Primavera alla Rocca / Pop Festival Aniene; the Scuderie Estensi and the Tivoli Theatre. The Officina E.S.T. works in collaboration with local authorities and dialogue with many youth groups, but also with the inhabitants and local associations.
 
The Officina E.S.T. is part of the Settimo Cielo association, a small group of artists sharing the desire for operational independence. The urgent need for a real and deep sharing with the public has been strengthened precisely through local creative projects with contributions by the Lazio Region and the Province of Rome. Places become the element of search characterizing the group that engages the theatrical language to contemporary reality, as a means of social aggregation and expression of a common feeling.
 
The program consists of a wide range of proposals dealing with different artistic languages (from prose to circus, music, theater and dance), paying special attention to contemporary popular theater.
 
During summer the Officina E.S.T. animates squares, villas, castles and landscapes, with shows and outdoor laboratories, developing the natural heritage of the Aniene Valley with a positive effect both on the flow of visitors and on the rediscovery by the citizens of their territory.
