A new cultural institution, in any discipline, stimulates reflection on the missions and functions it will need to assume. And also on the role that it will play with respect to issues such as the cultural complexity of our country, the relationship between artistic and productive sectors, the optimisation of systems that contemporaneity would like to be more and more permeable.
The Fondazione Nazionale della Danza / Aterballetto takes its cue from the introduction of the National Choreographic Centres to start a series of Workshops. And it makes itself available to stimulate subsequent in-depth studies.
