The Italian Cultural Institute in Zurich presents the play “La Locandiera” (The Mistress of the Inn), based on the comedy of the same name by Carlo Goldoni, staged by the theatre group “I Beccafichi” and directed by Enzo Scanzi.
The famous three-act comedy will be presented from 9 September in the theatre of the University of Zurich at Irchel. The theatre group “I Beccafichi” was founded in Zurich, in the autumn of 1984, out of the desire to promote the Italian language and culture in German-speaking Switzerland through theatre. At the beginning, I Beccafichi were mainly students of the University and Polytechnic of Zurich, which is why they joined the “Studententheater”. Over the years, however, the group has become increasingly independent in its artistic conception, welcoming people from other different backgrounds.
