About Raffaella


PhD in Digital Technologies Applied to the Performing Arts at the University of Rome "La Sapienza". Her research interests hinge on Dario Fo and the techniques of training of the actor. Pursuing an approach to theatre that balances theory with practice, she trained for many years in both classical ballet (Accademia Nazionale di Danza) and martial arts (karate and tai chi chuan). She has studied directing and acting under the guidance of Dario Fo, Yoshi Oida, Jean-Paul Denizon, Bruce Myers, Lilo Baur. In 2007, she shared the directing credit for Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream with Bruce Myers from Peter Brook’s CIRT and with Luca Giberti. In the last few years her work was focused on the exploration of the potential of new media technologies for the enhancement of education and research in the arts and humanities. She is in charge for coordinating national and international research projects on behalf of DigiLab, Centre for Research on Digital Arts & Humanities at the University of Rome La Sapienza and and teaches a course at the Language School of Middlebury College, (VT, USA). She is Project Bamboo representive for Italy with Luca Giberti on behalf of University of California Berkeley.
