La SocietÓ della Civetta, founded in 2007 by actor and director Guglielmo Papa, focuses its activities on the development of original theatrical language for new generations.

La SocietÓ della Civetta arises from the need to share the theatre experience with other professionals in the field of childhood - pedagogues, educators, psychologists - and to stimulate dialogue with the arts and cultures.

The company creates shows that are designed for children, with special attention given to early childhood. The importance of gesture and attention to detail brings a poetic sensibility to the performances and the actor’s work.

The shows of La SocietÓ della Civetta are represented in the programming of some of the most important Italian theatres (Teatro Testoni di Bologna, Teatro Mangiafuoco di Milano, Teatro di Bismantova, Ravenna Teatro, Accademia Perduta/Romagna Teatri) and the company is involved with projects in schools, libraries and cultural centres, also regularly residences with the collaboration and the support of the local public institutions.

The shows of La SocietÓ della Civetta have been presented in Italy and around the world. The company has toured to Switzerland, Finland, Ireland, Turkey, Romania, USA, Spain, Great Britain, Israel, Russia, Korea, Canada, Iran, Malta, Montenegro and Germany, indicating international recognition of the high quality of the company’s work.

For these international activities, the company has enjoyed the support of the Italian Cultural Institutes of Dublin, Ankara, Moscow, Tel Aviv, Bucharest, Seoul and Washington.
