Romaeuropa

The multidisciplinary Romaeuropa arts festival returns with an action-packed programme of dance, theatre, art and music, under the title Linfa vitale (Lifeblood).

The 29th edition of the prestigious two-month festival comprises over 50 events over 118 days of performances, and includes 20 Italian premieres – a significant overall increase on last year's numbers.

Romaeuropa director Fabrizio Grifasi has kept a strong international focus, with many big names on the programme.
