Teatro Valle Occupato is "an ancient theatre in Rome, which, following its occupation by a large group of citizens in 2011, has become internationally renowned as an experimental space for new social, political and cultural practices revolving around the idea of direct democracy and the ‘common good’" according to members of the collective that runs it.

It was initiated by artists and social movement activists and encourages people to participate through public assembly and special events. Teatro Valle Occupato is local in orientation and concerned with democracy, politics & representation; economy; neighbourhood & community; and public services

It was launched in 2011 and is ongoing.
