We don’t just specialize in animation, we also support Gli Alcuni – Repertory Theatre Company, which was founded in 1973 by Sergio Manfio, Francesco Manfio and Laura Fintina. We also manage the noteworthy Alcuni Sant’Anna Theatre in Treviso and organize travelling theatre company events for children and adults all over Italy. In the city of Padova, we host a yearly theatre program for schools and families alike.

In 2008, we launched our multimedia Talking Trees theme park in a stunning 19th-century villa and historic grounds in Treviso. Originally designed by Giannantonio Selva, renowned architect of La Fenice Theatre in Venice, we have created educational trails for kids in this setting based on themes like dinosaurs, young Leonardo da Vinci’s inventions, scientific discoveries, space and the cinema.

We are present well beyond the borders of Italy, and regularly attend major international festivals and trade fairs like MipTV Cannes, KidScreen Miami, MIPCOM and national events such as MIA Rome and Venice Film Festival.
