The show is online in Lombardy
The show continues at home, in Lombardy. Discover the plays, films, concerts, videos and podcasts available for free online
Live streaming shows, films and concerts or to see whenever you want, comfortably seated in your living room that magically transforms into a theater and cinema.
While waiting for theaters, museums, cinemas and film libraries to reopen, in Lombardy the show continues directly in our homes, so as not to give up enjoying, in the full safety for both spectators and artists, the great comfort and nourishment of art.
Here are some indications for choosing among the numerous online initiatives planned by private and public bodies in Lombardy.
Digital TV and web reviews: the theater is online in Lombardy
If you want to see the most beautiful theatrical performances by masters such as Giorgio Strehler or Luca Ronconi and many other directors who have directed the best Italian theater actors, the Piccolo Teatro di Milano offers the Piccolo Teatro TV free to the public. On the platform you will find all the most beautiful shows from this historic Milanese theater and much more, with continuous updates provided on social networks.
The Centro Teatrale Bresciano in the virtual review Resistenze Teatrali tells the everyday life of stage work and proposes new projects so as not to interrupt, at least virtually, the relationship between the public and actors and entertainment workers paused by the health emergency. Contemporary dramaturgical shows, poetry recitals entrusted to famous performers, daily logbooks of the performances are always available on the Resistanze Teatrali website.
A different, unique project is the one proposed by the Spazio Teatro No'hma in Milan, which launched the concept of the On Life theater: a "theater of the future" which, breaking down the distance with the physical stage space, enters the spectators' home. Both the shows produced by the theater and those of international companies are broadcast on the site, first in live streaming, then available in replay.
