«If beauty were taught to people, it would be equipped with a weapon against resignation, fear and silence. You get used to the existence of horrendous buildings that have suddenly sprung up, with all their squalor, from speculative operations, you put curtains on the windows, plants on the windowsill, and you soon forget how those places were. first, and everything, for the mere fact that it is so, seems to have to be so always and forever. This is why people should be educated in beauty: so that habit and resignation no longer creep into men and women, but curiosity and amazement always remain alive "(Peppino Impastato).

A project of theater, cinema, art and daily life, with girls and boys from Alessandria, Vercelli and Novara. Thanks to a special funding from the Department for Youth Policies, with the Piedmont Region and the municipalities of Alessandria, Vercelli and Novara, the Teatro Stabile di Torino is experimenting with a new way of proposing, participating in and producing theater and film and documentary. A traveling film set and a series of workshops in the form of art masters in the places usually frequented by young people will implement a process of observation and research on the theme of Beauty. The path includes the realization of three theatrical moments (one for each city), a documentary film and finally, it will arrive with a special Beauty staging, at Fonderie Limone in 2013. With meetings, sets, observations, plays, workshops, staging, writings , the young participants will be able to get involved in the first person. Local and non-local artists from the various disciplines of art and crafts, with the artistic direction of Gabriele Vacis, will guide young people in a path whose outcome is expected to be full of surprises and food for thought.
