The name refers to a duality complex, the dialectal etymology means restlessness and the words composition of art and theca.
Artéteca is passion pushing to action, it is engine of every invention and foudation of every creative act, it is the agitation that prevents from sleeping peacefully because of unexpressed idea, when struggling to find the best way to express it.

Theatrical tourism

Territory tales will be collected and preserved through language arts, chiefly the language of theater. We pursue this purpose by creating a new tourism orientation: theatrical tourism.
Our goal is to unveil to all travellers who arrive in Salento what each stone hides, the art and life of every corner, it is to ensure a unique unforgettable experience.
A land of millennial culture, its history and characters, will be narrated through the theater. Its places will be our scenography.
We strongly believe that theatrical performances can draw innovative itinerary to the tourism development of the territory, it can contribute to attract people in every season, because its primary and essential content is the widespread practice of the narration.
We need tales to build a future that belongs to an individual, to the community and the territory: this is what theatrical tourism means. Nothing is stronger than a narrative performance capable of showing the identity of a place, its true soul.
Salento is heading towards a new growth and cultural development. After an intense work of recovery and enhancement of its historical, artistic and archaeological heritage, today it needs to be recounted throughout the codes of its identity. Only combining narration with the development of sustainable tourism the territory will be able to tell its story outside.

the show is everywhere

The places

 

«A place is never just “that” place. That place is a bit of us. Somehow, without knowing it we took it inside … and one day by chance we got there.»
(Antonio Tabucchi)

Artéteca combines the soul of the places with those symbols and myths that are universal and therefore they speak to the traveler which is listening, enclosing in the history of one the history of many, in the history of one country the history of all countries of the world.
We tell the places and we dig, until the roots come to lights.
We search the places to stage performances among historic buildings, country courts, cathedrals, Byzantine crypts, museums, archaeological sites, historic companies. We collect evoked words from those places and put them on stage.

 

People

Our group is born from a journey, which for some of us have been a return and for others a need. Departing from Rome, where we formed culturally and professionally, rolling down the south, we were looking for a place where our dreams could flourish, we found Lecce, a city with a gentle soul and a thriving cultural climate, full of stories and colors to be narrated. Thus three people with different baggage but common aspirations, from a long private and professional knowledge, have found a home in a single project.
