The International Storytelling Festival of Rome is held in Parco Regionale Appia Antica, a protected area of huge archeological and historical value. The site is, in fact, the ideal venue for the festival. First held in 2008, the International Storytelling Festival brings in the eternal city the ancient myths and legends of the civilizations of the world, summoning, so to speak, in one of the most compact archeological sites of Rome, an entire cohort of awe inspiring and fairy characters which have haunted the peoples’ imagination for centuries.

The program consists of a comprehensive range of themes: from Gothic and Celtic myths to Argentinean and Greek legends (urban legends, even), the “stories” narrated or featured in the form of half theatrical half musical representations being a joy for both the adults and the little ones. The public is, of course, invited to actively participate to the established programs, plenty of workshops and interactive debates being also organized. Most of the performances and discussions are in Italian, but also in English, which makes the event accessible to a larger public.
