Socìetas Raffaello Sanzio
Socìetas Raffaello Sanzio, one of Italy's most radical-thinking contemporary theatres, was founded in 1981 by Romeo Castellucci, Claudia Castellucci and Chiara and Paolo Guidi. Since that time the group has created many productions, including provocative stagings of the classics of Shakespeare and the Greeks, including Hamlet, Julius Caesar, the Oresteia, as well as mythic texts, such as Gilgamesh. Societas Raffaello Sanzio also sustains a unique children's theatre, a school, and produces books and conferences on their work. Based in the Adriatic city of Cesena, Italy, the company's artists bring together theatre and the visual arts in productions that draw upon philosophical, literary, and visual ideas.
