Romaeuropa Festival runs from 6 September to 19 November 2023.
Rome's multidisciplinary arts festival returns with the 38th edition of its annual programme of contemporary dance, theatre, art, music, technology and events for kids.
This year there will be 90 different shows taking place in 13 venues across the city, involving more than 500 artists from around the world.
Romaeuropa artistic director Fabrizio Grifasi said this year's festival is "a snapshot of the geography of the arts, an invitation to discover the plurality of perspectives offered by the sensibilities of the artists and by their narration of that "floating world" which is the present."
