Piccole donne crescono (Little Women Grow Up) is an integrated theatre project curated by Fabiana Iacozzilli e Cranpi. Developed in 2023 through various stages of workshop practice and public showings, the project involved young boys and girls recovering from eating disorders.
Louisa May Alcott’s novel Little Women was the starting point of the collective practice aimed at finding connections between the book’s themes and the participant’s thoughts, and at sharing the result of these meetings. Narrative issues emerge from the fours protagonists – in a logic of proximity and discordance – and pave the road towards a world where the novel and contemporary reality coexist. Some of the central scenes from Little Women are integrated with creative inspirations emerged during the collective practice and woven together through shadow play, thanks to the collaboration of the collective Malombra.
At 4 p.m. there will be the meeting Percorsi possibili nel trattamento del comportamento dei disturbi alimentari held by dott. Antonio Sarnicola – Villa Pia/Korian Italia
