The Lavanderia a Vapore project is the result of an innovative model of systemic networking, sharing objectives and governance between different local entities that deal with promotion and programming of dance, thanks to the collaboration of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism, the Piedmont Region, the Municipality of Collegno and the support of Compagnia di San Paolo (private foundation).
To share goals and governance, an RTO (Raggruppamento Temporaneo di Organismi, Temporary Association of Bodies) has been created with the following partners:
