Mittelfest is an international and multidisciplinary festival (theatre, music and dance). It acts as a bridge between Italy and Central Europe.
Mittelfest was born in 1991, in a time of renewed dialogue between East and West in the framework of the Pentagonale initiative, which then included the governments of Italy, Austria, Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia and Hungary, and over the years has extended to 19 Central and Eastern Europe countries, thus giving life to the Central European Initiative (CEI).
Today, with theatre, music and dance, Mittelfest promotes dialogue between 25 European countries: Albania, Austria, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Estonia, Germany, Greece, Italy, Kosovo, Latvia, Lithuania, North Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, the Netherlands, Poland, the Czech Republic, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Switzerland and Hungary.
For the four-year period 2020-2023, the President of the Board of Directors is Roberto Corciulo.
The Artistic Director for the three-year period 2021-2023 is Giacomo Pedini.
