The University Theatre Company "Binario di Scambio" (switch rail) was founded in 2006 by Teresa Megale who is also the artistic director. It was created as an experimental activity for the students of the degrees in Planning and Management of Artistic Events and in Performing Arts held at the Prato campus.
It is now an open lab accessible by all students of the University wishing to express their artistic inclinations and talents. The involvement of the students covers all aspects of drama production, from the idea to the staging, from the artistic concept to the production and distribution.
The Company is involved in numerous events, collaborating with the most important cultural institutions of Tuscany.
In 2014 it has been awarded the CTS Special Prize for Youth Policies thanks to the work done in promoting specific experimental scientific and training activities geared towards the dissemination of artistic knowledge among the younger generations.
