[Autom. eng. transl.] The article presents a training course started in 2002 at the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart based on the study of classical theater starting from the original languages and faithfully translated for a staging by the students themselves in a curricular Ancient Drama Laboratory in the study plans of the Faculty of Letters and Philosophy of the University. It always ends with a lesson / show and offers students the possibility of continuing in progressively higher levels of preparation through Higher Education Courses which lead to the production of representable performances, which from 2012 go on stage in a city theater through the Kerkis Association. Ancient Theater On Stage. This formative experience brings into the participants a strong integral commitment of the person: intellectual and cultural activity is combined with an important work on emotions and builds relational and social dynamics between the participants aimed at achieving a not easy shared goal. A paragraph of the article is also dedicated to the presentation of the THAUMA Festival, organized in UCSC since 2015, which every year in March competes for classical theater performances in Italian high schools, bringing out the silent virtuosity of these educational experiences in dozens of Italian high schools (not only classical high schools) that have the chance to meet.
