The Scimone Sframeli Company was founded in 1994 thanks to the artistic collaboration between Spiro Scimone and Francesco Sframeli.
In that year, the two actors, driven by the need to seek new languages, they stage the first work Nunzio written by Scimone in Sicilian dialect. The work (IDI Authors New Award 1994 and Gold Medal IDI for the playwriting 1995) reveals fundamental stage of their artistic career, thanks to a meeting with one of the most eminent and authoritative figure in international theater: Carlo Cecchi. The artist, in fact, he directed the show, which premiered at the International Festival of Taormina Arte.
In 1997 Scimone wrote Bar, starred with Sframeli, directed by Valerio Binasco and setted by Titina Maselli. In the same year Scimone and Sframeli won the Ubu Prize, respectively as a New Author and New Actor.
In 1999, the two actors play The Feast by Scimone (1997 prize Candoni Arta for the new drama) directed by Gianfelice Imparato. This work in 2007 is staged by the Comédie Française at the Théâtre du Vieux-Colombier in Paris, directed by Galin Stoev and the following year is included in the program of the Cultural Season of the French Presidency of the European Union to be represented, together with Les Précieuses ridicules by Moliere, in Eastern countries belonging to the European Community.
