In 1978 three friends entered for the first time in the building that had once been a theater, then fallen into disuse and later transformed into a gymnasium. Thus began the artistic adventure of that nucleus that will become the G.I.A.D. Group (artistic director artistic director Giuseppe Magagnini) and that will see the transformation of the gymnasium again in theater.
