Description The Performing Arts is one of the major pillars in the history of culture and the arts in Europe. Their development has played a fundamental and indispensable in the creation and in the evolution of national literary traditions and languages. There is a wealth of films, recordings, audio, pictures, writings, sketches, many of which are kept in separate places and throughout Europe. This precious, irreplaceable heritage of knowledge often lies unused or forgotten in the archives of the respective institutions, independently of the visibility needed to ensure that European citizens can enjoy it. The project ECLAP is striving to make an important contribution to solving the problem of allowing a wide circulation of the documents that constitute the memory of the Arts and Performing Arts in Europe. The event was made possible thanks to the Center Theatre University of Sapienza University of Rome and in collaboration with the Theatre Company Fo-Rame, University of Florence ( General Coordinator of ECLAP ) and the Digital Renaissance Foundation. Guests of honor were Dario Fo and Franca Rame, who presented their archives, which are stored in documents, videos, images and texts of more than 50 years of the Theatre Company Fo-Rame.
