Fattoria Vittadini was born in Milan in 2009, by the will of 11 graduated dancers at the Paolo Grassi School of Performing Arts. Alongside the artistic production activity, the association works on projects aimed at offering accessible culture to disabled people, with a focus on deaf and signing people. Since 2018 Fattoria Vittadini has been organizing Festival del Silenzio, an international festival of performing arts twice awarded with the Medal bythe President of Italian Republic, with a focus on Sign Languages and signing culture, supporting LIS – Italian Sign Language and its legislative recognition. In 2019 the company co-organizes the IETM Satellite Meeting on the theme of accessibility to art and culture, and the residency project theWorkRoom_LIS for deaf/signing artists; the collaboration with IETM repeated in 2020 with the first Multi-location Plenary meeting held, for its Italian part, in Milan by Fattoria Vittadini and partners. 

In November 2019 Fattoria Vittadini, with the co-operation of Paragon Music Glasgow and Cascina Biblioteca Milan and the support of British Council, started S.I.I.A.T.E.- Scotland Italy Inclusive Artists Training Exchange aimed at creating a mixed professional dance company with differently abled performers lead by Chiara Bersani and Alex Ross McCabe.
