GIOCOSAMENTE
PLAYFULNESS FESTIVAL

26-30 June 2024
Central Italy


Dedicated to Playful Adults:
Educators, Play Designers, Game Custodians, Artists, Musicians, Circus Folk, Adventurous Souls and Kind Hearts...

EMBRACING CREATIVE PLAYFULNESS AND SPONTANEOUS KINDNESS

A place to

Rediscover

Your Playfulness

Together with 80 people from all over Italy and Europe in the "Pianeta Verde" Agricamping.

  • Dozens of playful workshops (to explore play and playfulness).
  • Magical, somewhat wild location, far from everyday life.
  • good food, music, joy and lots of nature!

Play is not something you do at the end of a long day: it is the way we choose to live.

Would you like to find your authentic playful self again?

Would you like to meet other creative and spontaneous people who feel like celebrating life?

Do you feel like discovering new ways of playing and touching true Playfulness?

Do you feel the need to recharge your batteries with humanity, joy and beauty?

This is the week for you.

Here’s what past participants have said:

  • “I laughed, smiled, danced, jumped, thought, talked, hugged, met new friends. I connected. I really enjoyed this group of people driven by a common vision and such generosity in giving of themselves and sharing their passions.”
  • “Here, as in other places where a certain kind of positive thinking is cultivated, the unspoken rule of the game is ‘more you give, more you get’. I saw it happen in the people next to me and experienced it first hand. By surrendering myself to the flow, I felt sincerely authentic for all four days and perhaps because of that, I also felt deeply recognised and understood by others”.

  • “Giocosamente was a nourishing experience in so many ways. It was fun and exciting… In the days that followed, I missed both the people I met and the atmosphere that had been created between us. Anthony was a wonderful play facilitator, deeply connected to his heart and to the time and space around him.

For four days, during Giocosamente Festival, you will have the opportunity to let your playful spark come out to play!

We are most generous and warm when we focus on what unites us rather than on our differences. Play itself is the force that unites us in infinite games, and it is therefore not a question of looking for who is the best or who is right.

In this safe and welcoming environment, you will be immersed in the Spirit of Play. The programme is packed with workshops, unconferences, open spaces, sharing circles, talks and of course lots of fun.
You will be an active participant and we will co-create magic together.

The festival is conceived as a meeting for people that believe Play is important for a better world. A place to exchange good practices and get charged up with great energy!

The festival will take place in English and Italian.

Registration opens on 1 April at 21:00 CET.

Giocosamente Festival is a residential gathering of creative playfulness and spontaneous kindness, immersed in the nature of the Italian mountains near Rome. A special place where you can dedicate yourself completely to play.

The festival is for enthusiastic Playful Adults: Educators, Play Designers, Artists, Musicians, Circus Performers, Adventurous Souls and Kind Hearts. There are 15 places for children with parents.

At Giocosamente we play and play again!

There is something truly liberating when adults play. After playing and being full of life, we talk, share, dance and then play again.

Playfulness is what makes life worth living.

Wednesday 26th to Sunday 30th June 2024

To create real community magic, we ask participants to join in the whole event from the start to the finish.

YEAR'S edition 2024


Residential in Nature

We will be together for three full days sleeping in tents and wooden houses and eating delicious veggie food. In an Agricamping called Pianeta Verde, Montenero Sabino.

  • Collaborative workshops

Workshops of various themes where everyone can share games, ideas and have fun.

e.g. Deep Play Games, Parachute Games, Word Games,Embodied Games, New Games, Warm up Games..

  • Unconference

Unconference creates a wonderful play space where all attendees are also contributors. All you need to do is show up, and you will be given the opportunity to propose some games, or play the games proposed by the others.

  • Open Space Technology

OST is a method for organizing and running a meeting or multi-day conference, where participants have been invited in order to focus on a specific, important task or purpose.

  • One hour to the festival

This is a way to give back to the community. Either a workshop or an hour of volunteering would be great and in the spirit of the festival.

FESTIVAL LOCATION 2024

We have chosen the AgriCamping "Pianeta Verde"
- for the third year as the location for the Festival; at 750m above sea level, it is truly a beautiful place in the Sabina region, about one hour from Rome. A magical location, partly wild, we share our space with donkeys, cats, dogs, lizards and a rich wildlife, far from the hustle of daily life.

– The place is very cozy and wild at the same time: we are in nature.

– We eat vegan food and sleep in tents and wooden houses with shared bathrooms.

– Activities are held in two large covered spaces as well as outdoors.

– After midnight silence is welcomed.

The Italian

Manifesto
del Gioco

The Italian Play Manifesto will also be present at the Festival. A project to support and promote play culture. More than 400 people have signed the manifesto since November 2021.

"I am playful, I am joyful and
I love life!"

WE'RE LOOKING FORWARD TO MEETING YOU!
