Compagnia della Fortezza

Armando Punzo and Compagnia della Fortezza have transformed Volterra prison in a place where every year, since 1989, a massive audience (an average of 300 hundreds people a day) enters the High Security Prison of Volterra to see Armando Punzo and his Compagnia della Fortezza performing all over the prison spaces, for an average of four/ five days a year. They have transformed it in a place where a group of around 30 collaborators (performers, musicians, poets, set and costumes designers, dancers, photographers, video makers) leave their everyday life to spend their summer in the little town of Volterra and to enter his prison everyday, to work with Armando and the Company to build together the final show. He has changed it in a place where other companies and artists are invited to perform, where critics, intellectuals, politicians, poets, musicians, researchers are gathered to discuss about the role of art and artists in contemporary society. Ultimately, Armando is transforming it in the actually existing, even if not institutionally recognized, National Theatre inside a prison in the world
