Thanks to a strong selection, just 4 plays, over 121 applicants, could access to the final step of the competition and 3 of them are part of ASSITEJ Italy: Kosmocomico Teatro (with “A piccolo passo”), Bam!bam!Teatro (with “Capitani coraggiosi” ) and finally the winner: Rosso Teatro with the play “IL PAESE SENZA PAROLE”.
