NEL VENTRE DEL SERPENTE La città-Corviale in un’esperienza teatrale di progettazione urbana
Start date: Jul 1, 2007,
The project ‘In the stomach of the snake’ aims to seek ways of assisting development in a
district of Rome (Corviale, on the outskirts of the city) which has suffered for a number of years from problems associated with difficulty of access to public spaces. This project, funded under the Youth in Action
Programme, conducted an analysis of social and communal problems. The inhabitants of the
district were encouraged to play a part in the process of change by taking advantage of opportunities for creativity offered by theatre. After the performance of the story, which usually has a disastrous ending, the master of ceremonies
suggests that it be re-enacted and invites members of the audience to intervene at key
moments at which they feel they could say or do something which could change the course of events. This technique of participatory theatre has raised
the awareness of local people in the community targeted.
