The Pandemic and the aftermath of COVID19 left Italian live artists and cultural organisation with little to no funding. In some cases, artists translated their work adapting it for web and streaming usage of which a small percentage gained revenue from it. Yet, culture and creativity during the lockdown were "spaces of survival" that kept all of us alive and emotionally enriched. COVID19 brought forwards the reality of the Italian cultural sector and its lack of a system of protection, development, integration and revenue of such.

In a Pan-European geography Business to Arts is a well established practice that supports the artists and business to create alliances and support. Italy does not have this approach.
We got inspired by other European cases and we want to bring the flow of culture in business to Italy.
Thanks to Enrico Pastore, critic of performance and theatre, we realised that this must be done now!
Pastore is capturing through articles the Italian situation called "Lo Stato delle Cose", we want to be able to translate it and to share it. It is an important study on the Italian cultural industry.
We developed our thought when directing Theatre Espace and becoming Espace Productions.
and creating Moving Bodies Festival Butoh and Live Arts. A festival dedicated to independent live performers
