A survey about the audience to the opera, concert, theatrical season and festivals which were carried out with the financial support of Compagnia di San Paolo. This audience survey is aimed at understanding the real impact of such support on the territory and to get new inputs for further interventions.
Survey of audiences at music, theatre, and dance festivals put on in 2008 in Piedmont, with the grant of Compagnia di San Paolo, as part of the "Arti Sceniche in Compagnia" grant programme.
The survey aimed to assess the overall appreciation of initiatives and to raise awareness among organisers of the importance of knowing about their own users. The survey was carried out on behalf of Compagnia di San Paolo.
With over 500 events in more than 70 locations in Genoa and Liguria, the Science Festival is the most important event in Italy for the circulation of scientific knowledge, discussing science and attracting people to it. Fondazione Fitzcarraldo carried out an ample survey of visitors to the festival, analysing the relationship between the festival and urban areas, and making use of technologically advanced data-collection instruments.
Commissioned by MITO Settembre Musica
The most important changes in the public at Settembre Musica was studied by Fitzcarraldo with an initial fact-finding survey in 1991 and two follow-ups in 2004 and 2005. MITO, the festival that links Turin to Milan, is also a great challenge from the point of view of supply, because it places Milan and Turin firmly on the stage of high music both in Italy and internationally.
The survey examines what possible implications this repositioning may have on the festival itself and on the two cities involved: how the new programme and the new image of the festival is viewed by the present audience, and what potential it has for attracting new target audiences; and what impact the festival has outside of the metropolitan areas as a result of a series of concerts planned for other urban centres.
Fitzcarraldo concentrated on the Turin side of the festival, Università Bocconi on the Milanese.

Cultural events on offer during the summer in Turin have increased enormously in recent years. Every year there are new festivals, and new and unusual areas are being devised, just as the art forms and stories that are told and the emotions they offer are often new, complex and undisciplined. Turin and the surrounding areas do not seem to be immune to the now global phenomenon known as festivalisation - in other words, the spread of events within a limited space and time, but which adopt forms of organisation and offer forms of culture that are capable of satisfying new demands. Surveys of the public at three of the most important summer festivals in Turin were based on the following premises: knowledge about the public at cultural events means gaining special insight into a changing society, into new forms of culture and forms of participation, and into the political challenges that will need to be faced in the near future.
