The A Levar L’Ombra da Terra festival has brought theatre, cinema, dance and music to towns across the province of Bergamo since 2008. Every summer, in partnership with the local councils, the festival draws up a programme of free outdoor initiatives that combine entertainment with opportunities for coming together, discussion and fun, making the most of cultural and social spaces and places of interest.
The festival has worked hard over the years to reach a broad audience that is not necessarily accustomed to attending cultural events. It strives to ensure a top-quality programme, focusing specifically on groups and companies that operate outside the main circuits. Its thirteenth edition in 2019 featured thirty-six shows in twenty different towns. It even reached a number of mountain huts in the Bergamo Alps thanks to its collaboration with the Bergamo branch of the CAI and the Fondazione Cariplo.
