«If you taught people beauty, you would provide them with a weapon against resignation, fear and silence. You get used to the existence of horrendous palaces suddenly built, with all their squalor, from speculative operations, quickly, you put the curtains on the windows, the plants on the windowsill, and you soon forget what those places were like. first, and everything, by the mere fact that it is so, seems to have to be so always and forever. This is why people should be educated to beauty: so that men and women no longer insinuate habit and resignation but curiosity and amazement always remain alive» (Peppino Impastato).

A project of theatre, cinema, art and daily life, with the girls and boys of Alessandria, Vercelli and Novara. Thanks to a special funding from the Department for Youth Policies, with the Piedmont Region and the municipalities of Alessandria, Vercelli and Novara, the Teatro Stabile of Turin is experimenting with a new way of proposing, participating in and producing theater and documentary cinema. An itinerant film set and a series of workshop meetings with art masters in places usually frequented by young people will implement a process of observation and research on the theme of Beauty. The path involves the creation of three theatrical moments (one for each city), a documentary film and finally, it will arrive with a special production of Beauty, at the Fonderie Limone in 2013. With meetings, sets, observations, listening, workshops, staging, writings , the young participants will be able to get involved in the first person. Local and non-local artists from the various disciplines of art and craftsmanship, with the artistic direction of Gabriele Vacis, will guide young people on a journey whose outcome is expected to be full of surprises and food for thought.
