Theatre: inside and out (1945-1978

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The essay provides a summary of the development of theater and live performance in Italy between 1945 and 1978, dividing it into three periods: "On stage. 1945-1959: towards stability and the norm”; "Wings and dressing rooms. 1959-1967: “how”, “where” and “why” we must make theatre", "Outside the theatres. 1968-1978: bodies in revolution . Examining the lines of the "teatro di regia" , "nuovo teatro", "animazione" , between names of personalities and historical productions, the essay tries to identify the fundamental joints and themes of an extremely fertile and intense period whose path , difficult to order in a unified development, has led the theater to rethink and transform itself into a plurality of realities and experiences.
