FUNARO of Pistoia is a very important cultural center and a true international creative hub, which has the distinctive feature of hospitality.
It is a space of about 1000 square meters, in the heart of Pistoia, where everything is taken care of in every detail: three theatrical halls (the main one with about 100 seats), a courtyard, a cafeteria, the residence, a library, a warehouse and a garden.
A multi-purpose venue, with a limited capacity but many “stages” possible for the planned activities. The natural outcome of these characteristics is an intense dialogue with the guest artists, which aims at deepening and developing paths more than the quantity of the proposal, offering international companies (whose names often recur from year to year) the place, the artistic collaboration and other useful tools to finalize the production to then present, together with the Italian public, the shows premiered or in national debut.
Every year an interesting program is renewed that ranges from shows, artistic residences, training, theater and activities for children, and moments of critical analysis with the projects of the Library and meetings.
Between collaborations with the territory and international gaze, the idea continues to be that of a “house / theater” that favors the exchange between artists and the public.
