"In many countries they put their mentally disabled in straightjackets and contention beds; we offer them a university degree, in “Theater of the Emotion."
~ Dario D’Ambrosi
The “Integrated Theater of the Emotion” is a university-level degree especially designed to academically and professionally prepare people with disabilities in the field of theater arts. It has been fully operational at the University of Studies of Tor Vergata, one of Rome’s outer boroughs, for almost a year now, and it has been a true revolution in the lives of people with disabilities and their families.
The night of December 12th will feature video clips, exclusive testimonies and the results of scientific studies that demonstrate how the accomplishments of the Pathological Theater are a true “miracle”, and a model that could be exported in all countries in the world to help give many emarginated people back their deserved dignity.
