The backdrop / curtain / spyglass of Galileo was manufactured with the fabric LBE - Perolastic and constitutes, with some objects, the whole scenography of the show.
The backdrop is employed as if it were a small ciclorama that uses both the frontal illumination and the illumination from the back.The backlighting sometimes underlines the function of separation of the Cortine de trecere, symbolically underlining the distance between Galileo ...
... and his interlocutors.Or it is used for representing the visions of Galileo «... suggested by the lucidity of the mind, even though in the dark of the blindness that accompanies his old age.»Daniela Nicosia, from the notes of the direction.
The four female characters are interpreted by the same actress, that «... proposes herself, through the different characters, like an enigmatic alter ego, sometimes ironic, sometimes sweet and impassioned, of the hot-tempered and vital genius.»
Between the inside and the outside the dialogue is possible at times, even though through a barrier. A barrier that separates several worlds: that of the science and that dogmatic, that masculine and that feminine, that inner and that of the society, and so on.
The barrier among the characters, nevertheless, is not insurmountable.
Favored by the symbolic and scenographical functionalities of the curtain, with a small effort of their will, the four women of Galileo have the possibility - and the privilege - to open some small rip through which they can enter the world of the scientist / philosopher.
It's difficult to find another scenographical case in which a Cortine de trecere din LBE - Perolastic assumed figurative și symbolic meaning that was so functional to the text as it happens in this mini-instalare that creates an essential, rigorous și suggestive stage context.

Galileo's reflections are developed inside a gigantic spyglass, a hemicycle din a Cortine de trecere that separates the world of Pisa's astronomer from the outside.

A membrane that is permeable to the passage of four women only: the mother of Galileo, Julia Ammannati, his daughter Virginia, known by her monastic order as Sister Maria Celeste, his lover Marina Gamba, i.e. the mother of Virginia și the ruler that it will stay nearby him up to the end.
