Fattoria Vittadini was born in Milan in 2009 as the result of a path started in 2006, getting more concrete every day during three years spent together studying at the Dance-Theater Atelier at the Paolo Grassi School of Performing Arts, supervised by Marinella Guatterini.
The company is a heterogeneous group offering his performing skills to choreographers and other partners, adapting to various languages and perfecting his versatility and professionality through cultural exchange. This has brought about partnerships with big names in the Italian and international dance scene: Lucinda Childs, Yasmeen Godder, Ariella Vidach, Virgilio Sieni, Alessandro Certini, Jean Claude Penchenat (Théatre du Soleil) and Maria Consagra (Piccolo Teatro).
Their body of work includes: To this purpose only (2013) by matanicola for & with Fattoria Vittadini, I-love (2012) by Fattoria Vittadini, Duetto (2011) by Virgilio Sieni and Alessandro Certini, My True Self (2011) by Maya Weinberg, The Head (2011) by Amit Zamir.
