About Italian & American Playwrights Project
The Italian and American Playwrights Project (IAPP) has been curated by New York-based Umanism’s director and Italian enterprise 369gradi’s Artistic Director Valeria Orani. With the support of Frank Hentschker, the director of the Martin E.Segal Theatre Center (Graduate Center City University of New York), IAPP aims to foster contemporary creative writing following a binary model (Italian theatre in the USA and American theatre in Italy). By doing so, IAPP adds continuity to a relationship developed between the two countries over the last thirty years.
