About the festival

The mission of the Verona Shakespeare Fringe Festival is to create an international, multi-lingual festival in Verona Italy that serves as inspiration and space for the plays and poetry of William Shakespeare. Steeped in the sights and sounds of Verona, the festival is organised by the Skenè Centre of the University of Verona, and fuses the work of Researchers and Artists who dissolve previous boundaries between stagecraft and scholarship; makes possible new modes of performance, reception, and transmission; and creates opportunities for audiences to experience a diverse array of imaginative responses to Shakespeare’s works.
