Italy / Roma

Founded in 2000 by Claudia Di Giacomo and Roberta Scaglione, PAV is a company specialized in the  design, production   and management  of  various devices  in the  performing arts field . PAV works across the board with  artists, national and international institutions, theaters  and  companies , combining projects of institutional relevance with continuous monitoring and support for the independent scene.

PAV has been recognized by the  Ministry of Culture as a promotion body  since 2013; it is also the leader of the European project  Fabulamundi Playwriting Europe , co-financed four times by the European Commission (from 2013 to the last edition of Creative Europe just won), promotes  contemporary dramaturgy  in 10 countries through a network of 15 partners. PAV has always been active in  supporting  internationalization processes , creating collaborations and exchanges to promote the mobility and circulation of works through the establishment of  national  and  international networks . In this regard we recall the recent Community Theater for Sustainable Development , in Sudan, and the bilateral project to support contemporary Italian and French dramaturgy  Face à Face  Italy/France 2007-2017.

The structure is involved in multi-year development projects such as:  Live Museum, Live Change , within the Atelier Art Beauty Culture of the Lazio Region at the Trajan's Markets in Rome; SummerTales , supported by the Municipality of Rome as part of the Roman Estate; Simultaneously  with a program entirely dedicated to the contemporary playwright.

Since 2002 PAV has been collaborating with the  Santa Cristina Theater Center  – founded by Luca Ronconi and now directed by Roberta Carlotto – for advanced actor training and, in more recent years, with  QAcademy  and  Istituto Luce  for  the Videogame Lab .

PAV is also very active in  contractual representation and mediation , on behalf of individual  artists* . An activity that places PAV in a strategic position in relations with theatres, opera foundations, and various productions in Italy and around the world and which has allowed it to develop a privileged and multifaceted observation point on the contemporary scene.
