LOVE TO FOLLOW ITS TRENDS, AND TO WATCH THE CLASSICS OVER AND OVER TO SEE
HOW THEY DEAL WITH THE NEW ARGUMENTS OF SOCIETY AND LIFE IN GENERAL.
My first love.
As with almost everything else, I owe it to my father who was obsessively passionate about theater and went to a performance almost every night of his life. This eventually resulted in an assiduous contact with authors, actors and the theatrical environment in general.
When viewed as a mirror of society, theater is not only an inexhaustible source of ideas and discoveries but a source of subtle notions of the psyche of the society in which one lives. The outfits play an integral, and essential, part in making the story real by helping one live, or relive, and interpret events, situations and or stories. Bruno Piattelli’s career was simultaneouw to that of the members of the Compagnia dei Giovanni: De Lullo, Valli, Falk, Giuffrè, Albani, Ronconi, Del Prete.
With the Compagnia dei Giovani, nothing but great theatrical pieces ranging from Pirandello to the musical “Metti una Sera a Cena” di Patroni Griffi and others... The simultaneous evolution of daily life in parallel with that in the theater, the attraction of interpretation of the characters, molded according to the interpretation of each director; the expression of various states of mind, the inversion of different periods (obviously helped by the scenery) are what makes theater for Piattelli.
Piattelli’s collaboration with Paolo Stoppa and Renzo Ricci and later with Vittorio Gassman and Pierpaolo Pasolini are well-known. But one cannot forget the plays by Maurizio Costanzo with Paola Quattrini, Paola Pitagora, Massimo Daporto, Ricardo Garrone as well as the works of Neil Simon and Piattelli’s ????? collaboration with Lia Zoppelli, Gianni Bonagur, Stefano Santospago, Arnaldo Ninchi, Paola Gassman and Ugo Pagliai.
