The training project continues “Vittorio Alfieri and the Actor”, created by the Gabriele Accomazzo Foundation for the Theater, which, after a careful selection, gives the opportunity to some actors (between 18 and 35 years old) from all over Italy, to participate for a week in an intensive seminar.
The days, marked by theoretical lessons and an impressive practical part, were held in Asti and Saturday 31 August is the last day.
Teachers the actors Marco Viecca and Valentina Veratrini, with Carla Forno, president of the Centro Studi Alfieriani. The seminar, free for participants, was hosted in Astiss, Palazzo Alfieri and the Teatro della Torretta. The actors are immersed in the universe of Alfieri, a great protagonist of his time, even if he is rebellious and hostile to his contemporary reality.
The participants of the seminar worked to discover the tragedy of Asti and, at the same time, in search of themselves to reach the maximum of theatrical performance, with a focus on the tragedy «Filippo».
