Directed by Jeff Malmberg and Chris Shellen, SPETTACOLO is the story of Monticchiello, a tiny hill town in Tuscany that found a remarkable way to document their history and confront their own contemporary conflicts—they turned their lives into a play. Every summer for the past 50 years, their piazza becomes a stage for the community and villagers from ages 6 to 90 to play a part—the role of themselves. An elegiac rendering of the changes in the economic and social landscape of the community, SPETTACOLO is a testament of the vital role theater can play in helping us all understand our lives.
