The Fourth Theater International Festival reaches the 31st edition

Why between Earth and sky? Because in its early years the teatralfestamedievale as a caterpillar has crawled through the streets of the village, transforming itself over the past decade into a chrysalis and today, the 31st Edition, is ready to take flight in the form of colorful butterfly.

The fourth Theatre

The 2018 is Mercantia year of change, the festival changes its look. It's time for the "citizen Theatre" and Certaldo and its streets becoming part of a large European theatrical project that gives life to a theater. A formula that does not look to the undifferentiated public but to the individual person with ad hoc show proposals for all tastes; a theatre that values the human relationship and the relationship between actor and spectatorsand 4 are the main directions and fourth because because the fourth dimension is that of experimentation, where exploring new paths for a theater magic can draw new geometries.
