The Teatro Povero of Monticchiello
In the small and charming village of Monticchiello, in the 60 there wasn’t a theater, so it was decided to aggregate around the idea of a theater in the square. It is a poor theater, in which the inhabitants of the village recite. Non-professional actors staged the traditions of the Valdorcian rural life and themes to be discussed, in a somewhat grotesque and “absurd” style. Is an open-air theater so there are shows only during the summer (from the end of July to mid-August).
To appreciate better the Valdorcian peasant traditions, before attending the show, you can have a meal at the Taverna del Bronzone, the tavern of the poor theater, open only during the theatrical season, which offers typical dishes and flavors.
