THE ART OF SUPERTITLES
Led by KIT Italia’s Donatella Codonesu and Giulia Casati, responsible for supervising supertitles for In Scena!

Supertitles are an art and not something to take for granted. In Scena! Donatella Codonesu, KIT Italia Artistic Director, and Giulia Casati, Assistant to the Supertitles, have devoted themselves to this art for years. The right supertitles will enhance the on stage and off stage performance, contributing to a foreign play’s success, almost as much as the actors on stage. Here’s why and how.
