The work of CSS has developed in many different directions and encompasses a whole range of activities that include: theatrical training, playwriting, community outreach, publishing and the promotion of cross-cultural initiatives
CSS, Udine was founded in 1978 and in 1984 it was awarded recognition by the Ministero per i Beni e Attività Culturali / Ministry of Culture and Heritage. In January 2000 it became the Teatro stabile di innovazione del Friuli Venezia Giulia, a cultural and occupational cooperative of significant importance. It has a total of 20 working members and employees. An additional team of over 200 people comprising actors, directors, stage designers, costume designers, contracted artists and technicians joins the company at every season.
CSS's work is funded by the Italian Ministry of Culture and Heritage, the Regional Council of Friuli Venezia Giulia, the Provincial Council of Udine and Udine City Council. Its activities take place at a regional, national and for some projects, at an international level through a variety of house productions, venue programming, theatre training and through hosting visiting productions.
