Once again, stories have colonized Portico di Romagna. Tellers from the UK, Hungary, Malta and Italy have performed the stories designed during the workshop “The Nature of This Moment” under the guidance of the Jewish storyteller Roy Gal-Or, co-founder of the International School of Storytelling of Forest Row. In the town center of Portico di Romagna, the tellers performed stories about the beginning, revealing the secret origins of natural phenomena such as the tides and the Taiwanese mountains.
Portico di Romagna, headquarter of the Italian Storytelling Center, grows up as a town of stories. Tonight, spontaneuosly, our friends from Lebanon, Scotland, the Netherlandss and Germany decided to take a walk together and share the best stories of their traditions.
Therefore, along the street of Portico di Romagna, we heard Shahrazād in Arabic, Jean Cocteau in French, William Shakespeare in Enghlis. And a poetry in dialect. Little magic of a summer night.
The Italian Storytelling Center has made new friends: Thomas and Paola, founders of Santa Maria Ferrano. With them, next September, we will explore stories of ancient and feminine wisdom. We hope this way to help them to establish a community with higher awareness, as Thomas describes it for us.
The Scottish International Storytelling Festival of Edimburgh, the main storytelling Festival in Europe, includes in its 2017 program our workshop on the dialogue between the three main world monotheism. The event will be hosted by the Italian Cultural Institute.
