The theater season at the Triennale in Milan is unique: probably one of the reasons why Milan is the city to live in Italy. And with the same refined international taste, from 9 March to 5th June, the first Festival of Performing Arts starts. It's called Fog, like “nebbia” in italian. The name is a manifesto: the fog (tipically Milanese but now disappeared) declined to English is the spirit of Milan. And then, it is a provocative title: if it is true that in the words show / spectators there is the etymology of the verb ’to see’ (Latin spicĕre),  the fog covers things and make them less visible. The vocation of Fog will be multidisciplinary as usual for Triennale: contemporary theater, music, dance. A festival of production and hospitality able to bring the performing arts into dialogue with architecture, design, art within the Milan Triennale and in a network of urban spaces and projects aimed at research and international vision.
