The website started as a tool designed to complement Valentina Valentini's book Nuovo Teatro Made in Italy (Read the project and how we worked), which also contains contributions from Anna Barsotti, Cristina Grazioli, and Donatella Orecchia (Rome: Bulzoni, 2015). At last, the documents within the research path have increased along with in-depth focuses on companies and artists. Finally, at the end of 2017, the book (in new edition) was published by Routledge, translated into English by Thomas Haskell Simpson. All the focus presentations were also translated into English. Our reconstruction of the phenomenology of New Theater makes use of a multimedia apparatus: this website devoted to the actors, companies, spectacles, and contexts covered in the volume, made up of videos, story boards, reviews, interviews and other archival material.
