Oltre’ come luogo che sta “al di là“, ma anche come “in-oltre“, come luogo altro, diverso.


This review-in-review takes place in a different place from the stage of the amphitheater, in the charming Laghetto delle Danze. Designed by d’Annunzio with the shape of a violin, as a tribute to Gasparo da Salò, to host choreography shows , and returned to the public in 2013, after an important hydrogeological rehabilitation intervention, is today the wildest area of ​​the Vittoriale Park, with its dense vegetation, the palm trees that peep out among the cypresses, the Acqua Pazza streams and dell’Acqua Savia that flow here in a sonorous waterfall, the stage-platform that enters the water, dominated by the bow of the Puglia Ship, and the audience sitting all around.
