Santarcangelo di Romagna is a town in the province of Rimini, Emilia-Romagna. It is crossed by two rivers, the Uso and the Marecchia. The town hosts "Santarcangelo dei Teatri" an international festival dedicated to the contemporary scene. The spectacles are held in the streets and squares of the city. It produces and promotes theatre and dance, with a special attention to interdisciplinary experiences and international cooperation dynamics. Starting in 1971 with a strong political impulse, Santarcangelo Festival was called the “International Square Theatre Festival”. The festival is a major international exhibition of avant-garde theatre, which has welcomed, amongst others, the famous Mutoid Waste Company, an international group of performers and sculptors of recycled materials. In the early 1990s, the Mutoids moved to Santarcangelo di Romagna, where they set up a scrap village called Mutonia and continued working, displaying, and performing at squats and libertarian celebrations in the Emilia-Romagna region.
