Who Are The Rocchetti?
A rocchetto is a spool with a cylindrical shape. It is an essential element used to support and move
the mise en scène during the 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.
There are over sixty different types of spool, suitable for different uses: each spool corresponds to a
different adaptability to a certain type of rope and weight.
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.

Change, rather than loss, is enrichment: old becomes new without losing the memory, and the
diversity of forms, materials and origins generates exceptionality.
We would like to nourish this community with your own actions, to experience the spaces of the
Teatro Regio in a creative way, perhaps by organizing special events, introducing opera to new
audiences, supporting social projects, meeting like-minded friends, sharing life moments, and
becoming, in a way, the Ambassadors of the Teatro.
In spite of the highly uncertain historical moment we are going through now, something can still
be built, one can equally determine its own destiny and the collective destiny to some extent, be
an active part of it.
Because only if you are familiar with something, you are willing to protect it.
