VISIONI DI FUTURO, VISIONI DI TEATRO… is the international festival of theatre and culture for early years organised by La Baracca – Testoni Ragazzi.

After a year, with Visioni 2021, the activities of the European project Mapping, a map on the aesthetics of performing arts for early years can finally start again, as Visioni is a Mapping Festival.

The entire programme (both in presence and online) is inspired by Mapping’s basic principles, that emphasise how boys and girls are extraordinarily and simply complex, surprising for the richness of their thoughts and the depth of their feelings.

Visioni 2021 is a special edition: its structure is definitely unusual, but considering the times we are living in, it could not be helped.

This edition features an original and high-quality online offer (covering both shows and training activities), thanks to the project financed by Bando EduCare, a call that allowed us to create the Visioni online platform.

We have tried to give our online offer its own identity, avoiding to consider it a replacement to the “live” mode.

We would like the online festival to be a place where we can research and experiment – just like we did in the past “live” editions -, and we can even think of including an online section in the future, while always hoping to be able to be together again.


The platform features 3 main sections.


The MAP includes the contents relating to the following topics:

SPECTATORS OF TODAY, with shows and artistic performances.
THE CHILDREN-SPECTATORS, with content about the exhibition created in collaboration with Bologna Children’s Book Fair.
LISTENING BAREFOOT, with digital stories for children and workshops you can sign up to.
THE ART OF TRAINING FOR THE ARTS, with the Festivals’ training activities for teachers, educators, and professionals.
FREE THOUGHTS, with meetings, conversations, and exchange about the relationship between performing arts and early years.


The EVENTS section presents the same contents as in the MAP section, but in chronological order, allowing you to follow the Festival’s activities day after day.


By clicking EXPLORE, you will be able to view all the activities scheduled and filter them by category.


Registration is required to access the platform’s contents.
Many of them are free, whereas the ones marked as PREMIUM can be accessed by purchasing the Visioni Pass. It costs 15€ and allows to view all the Premium contents for 30 days.

The pass does not include the workshops, which require a separate registration.


Tickets for single shows can be purchased at the price of 4€.
By purchasing the ticket, you will have access to the online live show, and you can also watch it on demand over the next 24 hours.
