Oltre le Parole is a non-profit cultural association, operating since 2003.
It deals mainly with Art in the Social field through artistic productions and vocational training in the field of non-formal learning.
The members of the working group come from various fields: theatre and performance, education, pedagogy, psychology, cinema and the arts in general.
The theatre productions focus on historical themes (The Women of Rome, Christina of Sweden, etc.) or on social and civil issues (eating disorders, drug addiction, precarious work, etc.).
Among other productions, “Oltre le Parole” has produced shows co-produced with the Teatro dell’Opera in Rome and made short films for the Presidency of the Council of Ministers.
The non-profit organisation carries out artistic-educational activities in schools, therapeutic communities, centres for the elderly or psycho-physically disabled citizens all over Italy, with a specific methodology created thanks to the experience and contribution of the teachers, who come from different fields and sectors, reconciling non-formal and informal learning.
In 2007, E.T.I. (the Italian Theatre Board) granted the association the patronage to set up the first national school for Social Theatre Operators (the only one in Italy).
