The Vitala Festival brings together and hosts artists from different walks of life and diverse nationalities with the purpose of entertaining the community, supporting the arts and fostering artistic synergies and cultural integration. Over the years, the Festival has hosted over 200 artists, with monthly performances and events programmed. Vitala Festival has also collaborated on dedicated, special events to fundraise for charities.

As a philanthropic project, the Vitala Festival is made possible by the kind attendance of the public and the generosity of individual donors and supporters, particularly with the increased difficulties and challenges brought about by the Pandemic. The proceeds from the tickets go to defray production costs and to support the artists involved in the Festival.

Special thanks go to all the artists and performers, to Teatro San Genesio, Teatro Le Salette, Parco Torretta de Massimi, to the Festival’s technical team and collaborators, to the kind donors and of course to the audience.

The programs of past seasons are available on Teatro San Genesio website or the Festival’s Facebook Page.
