THE THEATER, AND WORLD OF ENTERTAINMENT, WERE AN INTEGRAL PART OF HIS CAREER.
Bruno Piattelli’s theatrical endeavors boast of an ample experience with domestic productions. His multi-faceted interests lead him to the world of musicals by Remigio Paone and then Michele Caldieri and later with Garinei and Giovannini. The list of actors, actresses and singers he has worked with include: Maccario, Dapporto, Agus, Russel, Salerno, Garrone, Panelli, Noschese, Bramieri and Ghini. Memorable was the Italian production of “Promises, Promises” with Catherine Spaak and Johnny Dorelli. His were the costumes, designed by Coltellacci, for the production of “Ciao, Rudy” with Mastroianni.
The theater, and the world of entertainment in general, formed an integral part of his work experience, sort of a laboratory of research in the name of fashion.
Just as one observes motors and models in a small, experimental workshop, in the fashion world one observes and studies fabrics, how they react to the cut and lines. These one-of-a kind models, were often exaggerated to the extreme for use in theater, but the work will also influence more routine creations to wear in everyday life. “But don’t confuse the two” he warns, “which unfortunately happens in certain schools.”
