What is Fringe Italia Off?

Fringe Italia Off is an artistic and cultural project focused on regional marketing and off-season cultural tourism, organized by the associations “La Memoria del Teatro” and “Milano Off”. They connect the cities of Milan and Catania through two Fringe Festivals, MILANO OFF and CATANIA OFF (held between September and October), and from November to May host an annual theatrical season titled PALCO OFF.


Fringe is a concept that embodies an independent vision of the performing arts, featuring multidisciplinary shows that take place in unconventional spaces. The productions exist outside of traditional institutional circles, allowing for innovative and autonomous artistic choices and performances.

Concept 2024

In 2024, we commemorate the 700th anniversary of MARCO POLO’s passing. His passion for discovering new cultures is celebrated worldwide, and we embrace his iconic representation of Italy’s cultural mission across the globe in the sixth edition of the MILANO OFF FRINGE FESTIVAL and the third edition of the CATANIA OFF FRINGE FESTIVAL.

The common thread of this year’s festival editions—the theme— is “THE JOURNEY”.
