What is Valle Theater situation to be in the future? A group of performing artists is occupying the located in Rome 18th century dated theatre since 2011 as a reaction to resist to budget cutbacks to culture and to defend a place considered as a common. They are, since January 2012, fundraising in order to create a Foundation that manages the theatre and stabilize the occupation experience in a situation of lawfulness. At present finally the necessary money has been collected, however a happy ending still seems to be far.

Flavia Barca, assessor for culture of the municipality of Rome Capitale, declared that «certainly the establishment of the foundation is a positive sign» and Valle’s occupiers are surely a partner to be considered in the planning of projects concerning «different realities, actors, acting companies, associations». Anyhow, Barca said, a resettlement should be planned, also in order to proceed to recover the structure. So an uncertain future is shaping for the home of this experience of governance, the first of many others in Rome.
