the first European festival on creativity


Armando Punzo


Armando Punzo, filmmaker and playwright, has linked his name to Compagnia della Fortezza, a professional theatre company formed by inmates, that he founded in 1989 and still directs at the Volterra prison. Compagnia della Fortezza is characterized by innovative methodology, experimentation in filmmaking and dramatic methods, and the ability to create performances that also transform the settings where they take place. Throughout thirty years of activity, they have created more than thirty shows, receiving prestigious awards such as the Sigillo d’Ateneo of the University of Urbino, six UBU Awards, the Premio Associazione Nazionale Critici di Teatro, the Premio Carmelo Bene assigned by the magazine Lo Straniero, the Premio Europa Taormina Arte, the Agis Biglietto d’oro special award.
