Art and theatre to dream of fantastic worlds

18-month to 18-year-olds: the protagonists of today and tomorrow

A world of artists on the stage… and in the street

Story

Created in 2006, it is the main activity of the Segni d’Infanzia Association.

The only one of its kind in Italy, SEGNI New Generations Festival is an international art and theatre event aimed at boys and girls, children and teenagers aged 18 months to 18 years.

It is designed to involve schools, families and all those who love the theatre, research and the languages of the arts.

Artists and companies from Italy and abroad – among the most renowned and innovative on the world scene – perform in shows, workshops and art itineraries, in Mantua’s most beautiful locations. Support by the President of the Republic – in the form of a Representative Award – is a guarantee of the high quality of the project.

Festival delegates

FILL OUT THE FORM TO PARTICIPATE IN THE FESTIVAL HERE

The 2022 edition of SEGNI New Generations Festival will take place from 29 October to 6 November 2022.

A new way to participate in SEGNI New Generations Festival was born in 2022, thanks to the PASTA MADRE Masterclasses: experiences of live exchange and knowledge sharing for artists, professionals, cultural operators. They all meet at SEGNI to get regenerated and create ALLIANCES. As in the magic of the multiplication of mother yeast (PASTA MADRE) with water and flour, from an initial cell they will multply knowledge and skills.

The PASTA MADRE MASTERCLASSES include activities like the “Stage Fighting” or the cooking workshops, aimed at facilitating new forms of cooperation for a holistic approach to cultural management and international cooperation.

The Pavilions for 2022 are: NETHERLANDS, thanks to the support of Fonds Podiumkunsten Performing Arts FundNORWAY, with the collaboration of Assitej Norway, BELGIUM AND FLANDERS, with the support of the Diplomatic Representation of Flanders in Italy. Then CANADADENMARK and ITALY.

The Festival program 2022 is available on segninonda.org.  If you are a cultural operator or profesional and want to register, fill the operators form
