"The collaboration with FEDORA on the Over Dance project has been truly transformative for us at FND/Aterballetto. It has allowed us to push the boundaries of our artistic expression and explore new possibilities in dance. FEDORA's support and expertise have been invaluable in bringing this project to life, and we are grateful for their commitment to fostering collaboration and innovation in the arts.", Gigi Cristoforetti, Managing and Artistic Director

Fondazione Nazionale della Danza / Aterballetto is National Choreographic Centre, based in Reggio Emilia (Italy). The founding mebers are the Emilia-Romagna Region and the Municipality of Reggio Emilia.Our main objective is clear: to pursue a cultural policy and not only an artistic mission. The aim is to act on the investments made by MiBACT (Italian ministry of culture), the Regional Government of Emilia-Romagna and the Municipality of Reggio Emilia with a strategic vision encompassing the local, national and international level. The idea is to create a new institution, able to fulfil the task of promoting and developing dance in Italy and of projecting the image of Italian dance and its artistic talent internationally.The cultural policy we pursue at every level is based on integration and collaboration. We are always open to ideas, but our efforts are mainly focused on developing platforms for projects in which we can bring fellow travellers on board, whether they are organizations connected with dance, theatre, art, music or social thought. Our conceptual approach always takes the project as its starting point and aims to set up experiments in multidisciplinary collaboration.

Our ongoing season at FND/Aterballetto is a celebration of dance and artistic excellence. We have curated a diverse and compelling repertoire that showcases the immense talent of our dancers and the creativity of our choreographers. Audiences can expect to be mesmerized by captivating performances that range from full-length masterpieces to cutting-edge contemporary shorter pieces. We aim to challenge perceptions and push boundaries, inviting our audience to experience the transformative power of dance.

Supporting FND/Aterballetto is not just an investment in a dance company; it is an investment in the arts, culture, and the community as a whole. By supporting us, donors, foundations, and investors play a vital role in sustaining and promoting the transformative power of dance.

On 27th July at the Arena Sferisterio in Macerata we closed our 2022/23 season, but the Fondazione Nazionale della Danza / Aterballetto – National Choreographic Centre is already looking forward to new adventures, including NOTTE MORRICONE, the new production by visionary choreographer Marcos Morau that will debut at the Macerata Opera Festival in 2024.
