About

Founded in 2005 Raccontamiunastoria is the first and up to now the most established Storytelling Company in Italy. It runs storytelling activities in Roma and all over Italy all year round and its artists are present on a regular base at the most prestigious storytelling Festivals worldwide. Raccontamiunastoria is not a network of "solo performers", but a Company of artists that share a common research, professional development and often the stage. Raccontamiunastoria believes in the importance of technical, physical and voice training for performing Storytellers as well as a sound knowledge of stage awareness.

Raccontamiunastoria is acknowledged for its pure storytelling style (100% improvised text) true to the oral tradition, but also for its modern and experimental performances that see storytelling mixed with other arts such as live music, dance, singing , painting, photography, fashion and comic design. Raccontamiunastoria organizes “International Storytelling Festival Raccontamiunastoria” in Rome since 2009 and "Storytelling Time"  Festival in Bolzano. Through the years the Company has started a number of collaborations with other Festivals in Italy and abroad, taking care of the organisation of international storytelling programmes.

Raccontamiunastoria is very committed to the training of new professional storytellers both at national and international level and have structured across the years a progression of workshops from basic level to professional development.

Since 2016 Raccontamiunastoria extends its presence on the International scene to the Middle East  with the brand "The Storytelling Company". In collaboration with prestigious partners such as Shurooq Sharjah Investment and Development Authority, Emirates Literature Foundation, the British Council and Alliance Francaise they are pioneer of the   Storytelling Revival in the U.A.E, where they organise "Tales on the Island - International Storytelling Festival” in Sharjah (now at its 3rd edition) and "After Iftar Tales", Storytelling project for Ramadan with both school and evening performances. Storytelling in the U.A.E is followed with great appreciation from both audience and press.
