Attraversamenti Multipli / Multiple Crossings is a multidisciplinary festival created by the artistic group Margine Operativo, that investigates the relationships between contemporary performing arts and the present by inserting site-specific shows and performances in urban landscapes and regenerated places.


Attraversamenti Multipli is a project that likes to move on the borderlines between different artistic languages and in the areas of proximity between art and life.

Attraversamenti Multipli in the 2023 edition chooses to open a new phase of experimentation/research for the festival: the possibilities of confrontation/interaction between urban nature and performing arts by tracing a path that revolves around the performativity of bodies in dialogue/connection with natural urban landscapes.



Attraversamenti Multipli 2023
is conceived and curated by the artistic group Margine Operativo, under the artistic direction of Alessandra Ferraro and Pako Graziani.
It is realised with the support of the MIC – Italian Ministry of Culture and with the support of Roma Capitale.
The project, promoted by Roma Capitale – Department of Culture, is the winner of the biennial Public Notice “Estate Romana 2023-2024” edited by the Department of Cultural Activities and is realized in collaboration with SIAE

FRAGILE is the slogan/word that accompanies the route of Attraversamenti Multipli 2023

Our planet is fragile: increasingly affected by climatic, humanitarian and global emergencies.
The performing arts universe is fragile, exposed to endless precariousness.
We are fragile and resilient beings.
FRAGILE >> is ‘something’ to be handled with care, whether it is the planet we live on, ourselves, or the universe of the performing arts.
Fragility, as a vital symptom, a key to understanding reality, a point from which to resist and to build unexpected trajectories capable of including and welcoming, capable of outlining a sustainable world for all (animals, plants, human beings, cultures…)


Attraversamenti Multipli 2023, within a project arc that began in 2017, takes place in Toffia (Rieti) and in Rome in the Quadraro district, where in this edition, it inhabits the urban nature of the Torre del Fiscale Park with performances / site specific / performative formats in dialogue with the extraordinary urban / natural / archaeological landscape of this green lung of the polycentric metropolis in a green and sustainable perspective.

For Attraversamenti Multipli interfacing with public space means inhabiting
“a place capable of offering the possibility of a radical perspective from which to look, to create, to imagine alternatives and new worlds… a space that makes possible and encourages different and ever-changing perspectives, a space in which new ways of seeing reality are discovered, the frontiers of difference.”
(bell hooks)

Attraversamenti Multipli enhances regenerated spaces and places that are protagonists of processes of transformation of the urban fabric through its artistic actions. It places itself in close connection with the context in which it develops by involving local networks and energies in a local/global perspective.

It proposes a multifaceted, multiform and hybrid nature in which different practices of contemporary performing arts have citizenship and dialogue with each other: dance_theatre_music_video_site specific

Traces of the path of Attraversamenti Multipli:

Attraversamenti Multipli is a multidisciplinary festival that questions the relationships between contemporary performing arts and the present by placing shows and performances in urban landscapes and regenerated places.

Attraversamenti Multipli is conceived and realized by the artistic group Margine Operativo.

The first edition took place in 2001 in Rome.

Attraversamenti Multipli for many years has been nomadic, crossing in every edition different places and spaces of the metropolis of Rome: from the subway stations to spaces of industrial archeology, such as Officine Marconi (ex Italcable), from the Universities of Tor Vergata and La Sapienza to the pedestrian islands (Pigneto, S. Lorenzo, Largo Spartaco). Lorenzo, Largo Spartaco and Casal Bertone), from libraries (Biblioteca Goffredo Mameli) to multipurpose spaces such as GGarage Zero, Esc Atelier and Centrale Preneste Teatro, with a predilection for redeveloped and regenerated places that symbolize the transformations of the city.
Garage Zero, Esc Atelier and Centrale Preneste Teatro, with a predilection for redeveloped and regenerated places that symbolize the transformations of the city.

In 2014 it took place not only in Rome but also in Naples: in the art stations of the subway. In 2017 it inhabited a regenerated space in the historical center of Genoa. In some editions it proposed events in the province of Rome and in the Lazio Region. 
Since 2017 – within a project arc that extends until 2022 – the festival has chosen to “inhabit” with its artistic actions a popular and densely inhabited area of Rome, the Quadraro district and one of its fulcrums: the pedestrian island of Largo Spartaco, a space that the festival had already crossed with some events in previous editions.

During its 22 editions it has been supported by Roma Capitale, Lazio Region and the Province of Rome. In 2021 and 2022 it was supported by the MIC – Ministry of Culture.
The start-up in 2001 took place with a grant from Zone Attive.
In 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 a cross-disciplinary event of Attraversamenti Multipli – which ran from dusk to dawn – was part of the program of the NOTTE BIANCA of Rome.

In 2014, 2015 and 2016 the project was declared by Roma Capitale “Festival of particular interest for the cultural life of the City 2014-2016”.
In 2014 Attraversamenti Multipli was also held in Naples with the support of the Universal Forum of Cultures and UNESCO. In 2017 Attraversamenti Multipli took place also in Genoa with the support of Compagnia di San Paolo in the context of “ORA! Linguaggi contemporanei Produzioni innovative”. 
In 2016, 2017 and 2019 a part of the festival was intertwined with the project “CONTACT ZONES_performing arts in urban spaces” realized by Margine Operativo and supported by the European Union within the Creative Europe program.

In 2021 the book “ATTRAVERSAMENTI MULTIPLI 2001 – 2020. A journey through the mobile horizons of contemporary performing arts” edited by Alessandra Ferraro and Pako Graziani – published by Editoria & Spettacolo.

Margine Operativo

is a multidisciplinary artistic group coordinated by Alessandra Ferraro and Pako Graziani.
Its fields of action are: theater, performing arts, video.

Since the beginning it has had a polyform and mixed nature that has led it to act on several fronts of contemporary artistic creation: from the production of theatrical shows and performance formats balanced between different artistic codes, to research on video language.

In his DNA he carries the conviction that art is a device that can create change and the propensity to create connections with other projects / artists and with the spaces of cultural activism.

These characteristics have delineated another area of action for Margine Operativo: the creation of events and the conception and realization of the multidisciplinary festival Attraversamenti Multipli – proposed annually since 2001 – which questions the relationships and interferences between contemporary artistic languages and the present, inserting artistic events in unusual locations and urban spaces.

Margine Operativo combines the work of artistic production with an intense activity in the field of networking with other festivals/artists/companies active in the protection of the rights of workers in the performing arts and in the promotion of contemporary cultures.

In his shows and performances he presses the emergencies of the present addressing the complexity of reality through the multiplicity of the contemporary.

The Cultural Association Margine Operativo was founded in Rome in 2001.
In 2018 was published the book “I teatri di Margine Operativo” curated by Andrea Pocosgnich, in the series Spaesamenti – editing by Editoria & Spettacolo.
