The Trilogy on Friedrich Nietzsche (2013), Death of Zarathustra (2016) and Pragma. Study on the myth of Demeter (2018) are the outcomes on the scene of this investigation, accompanied by studies and publications on the same topics. The research activity has been the subject of various degree theses. The shows are hosted in spaces and theaters throughout Italy and abroad.

In Genoa the company manages Teatro Akropolis, a place designed to welcome and promote research in performing arts, through the organization of festivals, creative residencies, workshops and various cultural activities. In 2017 the editorial activity of Teatro Akropolis, realized with the AkropolisLibri brand, received the Ubu Prize in the “special projects” category.
