The project S-manìe starts in the summer 2013 asthe result of the artistic collaboration between Elena De Carolis and Carolina Cangini, together with the contribution of Flavia Ripa. Its achievement in march 2014 has been made possible also thanks to the association Armunia and the Mariani Theatre that are supporting the project by making artistic residences available.
This is the first artistic production of AgaveTeatro but we believe that, thanks to your help, it is going to be the first of a long series.
We are currently promoting our artistic project on the crowdfunding platform Eppela.com by asking a little donation to anyone willing to support our project.Your generosity will be rewarded!
AgaveTeatro is a cultural project which aims to the realization of theatre plays and cultural acts having live performance as a keystone. It also aims to culture promotion through the fusion of different arts.

S-manìe is a play based on “Pining for a Holiday” by Goldoni.
Why start with a Goldoni text today? Goldoni proposes stories which are absolutely near to us. Women and men who need to show themselves in the society in a conventional way of their selves, to appear in a society based on a precise model of reference. We like the idea of handling the society’s crisis with laughter, with grotesque.
S-manìe inspects a timeless theme, the obsession for the appearance, about what other people say, to be like others think we should be. The influence on our likings and choices, the bulimia of possessing, the most possible, until destruction.
Our work is to research the way in which the desire becomes mania, what a woman is willing to do to appear like one of the most important women of the city.
Ours work starts from a point of view, that ofVittoria’s. Everything that occurs and the relationship with others character are her point of view. We start from her mania, aspirations, her models, her envy.
This is a feminine job, not only because the two bodies in scene are feminine, but also because the background of reference is that of feminine vanity, sensibility, and sensuality. That ‘being a woman’ composed of elegance, refinement and frailty and at the same time the incredible force, determination and fierceness.
Two women,Vittoriaand Giacinta, who long for perfection, for an absolute supremacy. Under this feminine world there is a winding male presence, though his absence operates to contrast, like an external pressure.
A simple and atemporal mis-en-scene, completely made to suggest.
A free collage and adaptation of the Goldoni’s text. We maintained his words, his language, to speak about nowadays.
Why your help is important to us:
For a young acting company, it’s very difficult to have access on public or institutional funds for a play production. Crowdfunding is a way to support artistic and cultural projects. Every contribution, even the smallest, can be very important and decisive for the realization of this project. Help us fulfill it!
What the funds will be used for
-refund people working at this project
-costumes and scenic design
- graphic, video and photographic material to promote the play

Carolina Cangini and Elena De Carolis achieve in 2011 an acting diploma at the Acting School of Drama “A.Galante Garrone”. After working together in the play “Maros-gelo”, a play inspired by the “Three Sisters” of Cechov and directed by Renata Palminiello, they decide in 2013 to start together this new adventure, the “S-manìe”.
