LUCIA is an international festival dedicated to the listening of radio works and podcasts.
It is a celebration of the art of storytelling without images.
This festival presents audio narratives from all over the world, and does so thanks to the curated production of subtitled videos – in Italian and English – to facilitate linguistic accessibility. In addition to listening sessions, LUCIA is also a calendar of live performances, sensory warm-ups, meetings with authors and audio makers.

Now in its fourth edition and scheduled from December 9 th-11 th 2022, LUCIA Festival is hosted by CANGO Cantieri Culturali Goldonetta, as part of the winter programme of La Democrazia del corpo. This edition is dedicated to the boundaries of the body, the explosion of its imposed and perceived limits, the energies that run through it, its multiple and changing identities, the porosity between individuals and groups, the choreography of collective rituals and mass hysterias.

LUCIA 2022 features works by: Talia Augustidis, Pauline Augustyn, Chloe Barreau e Lilith Primavera, Giorgio Bandini, Sara de Monchy, Camille Descroix, Erica Heilman, Nanna Hauge Kristensen, Le Collectf Wow!, Lieselot Mariën, Eva Moeraert, Martina Melilli & Botafuego, Ariel Mejia, Phoebe McIndoe, Mauro Pescio and Alice Pontiggia.
