Spirit of the chamber theater in Umag was embodied through mr. Antonio Coslovich who has built a hotel called Al Leon d’oro – towards the golden lion in which he had a theatre with about 100 seats. Festival is taking action in the city theater in National open university “Ante Babić” which is located in the centre of Umag and because of its construction and location is allowing us to organize all of the following events that can be visited by a grand amount of visitors.

Over the years festival has become a symbol of quality, not only in Umag but generally in Istra, it attracts more people and persons from public life and it attracts the media. Of course that all is supported by more quality contents, which is always carefully selected and representative festival program, it raises the level of festival.

Mani Gotovac: “Golden Lion” is a festival with a concept. He is tied for the ground, in the space where he gets created. There Croatians, Italians and Slovenians live. That festival is imagined as a part of their culture, as alive, 2 unusual and sang events from the wide area of their real theatrical multiculturality”.
