Who Are The Rocchetti?
The Rocchetti community is an International Network of Young Teatro Regio di Parma Friends with
the passion for Opera, Classical Music, Ballet and Arts in general.
A rocchetto is a spool that is an essential element used to support and move the mise en scène during performances. In the past they were made of wood and shaped by hand but today, for technical reasons and safety purposes, the rocchetti are made of aluminum. We call ourselves The Rocchetti because these spools can be seen as an example of strong, highly independent individuals who consider coming together and engaging in teamwork as a way to reinforce his or her own characteristics, and resulting in a profound movement.
We would like to build a community of young art lovers, who recognize the enduring relevance of Teatro Regio di Parma’s programming, as well as the importance of preserving cultural and artistic institutions like the Teatro Regio. We understand that it is imperative to support Teatro Regio in a creative way, perhaps by organizing special events, introducing opera to new audiences, supporting social projects, having discussions about the arts and the future of artistic institutions, and becoming, in a way, the Ambassadors of the Teatro.
Finally, we believe that change results in enrichment, rather than loss: old becomes new without losing the memory. Thus, in spite of the highly uncertain historical moment we are going through now, a strong community of young people can still be built to uphold, as well as contribute to the evolution of Teatro Regio.
