In 1968, on behalf of Ente Manifestazioni Torinesi, she created ‘Festa a Corte.’ It was the first time that Filippo D’Agliè’s Ballets for the Savoy Court had been proposed in contemporary times, on music – reconstructed from original scores – by Roberto Goitre.
In 1977, Furno founded Balletto Teatro di Torino. In this context, she produced the following ballets: ‘Werther’ by Pugnani-Miskovitch, ‘Cleopatra’ by Mancinelli-Miskovitch, ‘Shakespeariana’ by Biagi-Fascilla-Furno, ‘Il Noce di Benevento’ by Viganò-Paganini-Egri, ‘Pulcinella’ by Stravinskij-Gai, ‘Amo le rose che non colsi’ by Cristiano-Gai.
The company is active all-over Italy and abroad. It is stable in Turin and has a regular season at Lavanderia a Vapore – Center of Excellence for Dance in Collegno. BTT is the resident company at Lavanderia a Vapore.
Loredana got her license as a dance teacher from the Ministry of Public Education and, since 1964, has been the Director of the Balletto Teatro di Torino School of Dance. The School has trained many professional dancers, Matteo Levaggi being an example.
She was a History of Dance professor at the University of Turin.
In 1980, together with Gian Mesturino, Furno created the Vignale Danza Festival and was the coordinator until 1982. After quitting directing this event, in 1984 she created two other festivals: Bolzano Danza Festival (Provincia Autonoma Bolzano) and Acqui in Palcoscenico Festival (Acqui Terme). In 1991 she conceived ‘Festival dei Laghi, danza nelle dimore storiche e nei giardini dei laghi Maggiore e d’Orta,’ an itinerant festival to promote knowledge of the Piemonte region’s environmental assets.
She conceived and established Danza alla Fortezza del Priamàr Festival, held at the Priamàr Fortress in Savona. Through this festival, for the first time, many prestigious Italian and international companies were showcased in a region where there are very few initiatives regarding dance. In 2009, Furno took over the artistic direction of Lavanderia a Vapore – one of the very few choreographic centers in Italy – and directed it for six years. The BTT Company currently conducts its activities at Lavanderia a Vapore, within the frame of Fondazione Piemonte dal Vivo’s initiatives.
In 2014, she received the ‘Fedeltà al Lavoro’ award for her over 35-year activity by Camera di Commercio and Industria di Torino.
