Dario Moretti was born in Mantova, 1955. He began with the theater attending the DAMS of Bologna and the puppet shop of Giordano Ferrari in Parma. In 1978 he founded the theater company for children Teatro all'improvviso, of which he is still the artistic director and he participates in many festivals in Italy and abroad. He searches for a dialogue between painting and theater, creating shows in which dance, storytelling and music are confronted with the gesture and the pictorial sign. Moretti designs for theatrical seasons, shows and festivals and several theater companies. In 2007 he conceived the International Festival of Art and Theater for Children.
