A place to


Your Playfulness

Together with 80 people from all over Italy and Europe

  • Dozens of playful workshops (dedicated to 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.

  • “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 rediscover your playful self.

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.

The festival is conceived as a meeting for Game Enthusiasts 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 gathering of creative playfulness and spontaneous kindness, residential and 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.

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

For general public it is possible to participate on the Sunday afternoon.

– Deepen our connection, Immerse in the Experience, Embrace Transformation.

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.

YEAR'S edition 2024

Giocosamente Festival will to return to presence in 2022. It will be a residential festival in a place surrounded by nature, so that participants can dedicate themselves completely to playfulness.

The theme this year is -“The Nature of Play”. The festival is conceived as a gathering for the Enthusiasts of Play to exchange good practices and get charged with good energy!

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.


We have chosen the AgriCamping "Pianeta Verde"
- as the location for the 2023 Festival; at 700m above sea level, it is truly a beautiful place in the Sabina region, about one hour from Rome. A magical location, partly wild, far from daily life. Lots of welcoming spaces to eat and inspired settings to dive deep into our play-work.

We eat vegan food and sleep in tents and wooden houses.


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

– There are two large indoor facilities but we are also outdoors.

– The food is vegan (after midnight you take care of silence).

The Italian
