Teatro del fuoco 2017

Energy, passion, elegance. These are the main ingredients of what has become one of the most anticipated appointments of the Sicilian summer. We are talking about the Teatro del fuoco (literally, “fire theatre”) at Castello al Mare in Palermo. The 2017 edition will take place on August 1st.


The theatre

It is, simply, a unique event. The Teatro del fuoco mixes two elements characterized by great energy: fire and dance. In a day, artists from all over the world will perform on the stage of the Teatro del fuoco: there will be shows, installations, workshops, exhibitions, acrobatic performances, circus, music, dance, art, photography.

Exhibitions and shows will all have the same “trait d’union”: the fire.


The location

It will be the Castello a Mare in Palermo, one of the most beautiful castles in Sicily. Built in the Ninth century, during the Arab-Norman age, its restoration began in 2009, when it became the central nucleus of the Castellammare Archaeological Park. It is located by the sea and the colour of the water will make the evolutions with the fire even more magical and special.



On the occasion of Teatro del fuoco, since you have chosen to spend the summer holidays in Sicily, you could visit one of the most beautiful cities of the Mediterranean Sea. In particular, we recommend two itineraries that will allow you to discover this real historical, artistic, natural and cultural treasure:


How to get there

Castello a Mare is located in an easy-to-reach part of the city: overlooking the Cala, near the port of Palermo (one of the main ports for ferries to Sicily). If you will stay in the centre of Palermo, you could enjoy a pleasant walk to get to Castello a Mare.
