The scenography and perhaps even more the Nineteenth Century's Italian illustration see in Emanuele Luzzati
(Genoa 1921-2007) one of the authors that have more influenced them.
In Luzzati, the creation of the scene uses almost exclusively traditional materials, often in a conventional way.
Light and transparency games don't have a primary importance, that is left instead to the voluntarily approximate compositions made of cloths, platforms, passages and booby-traps that underline with their apparent precariousness a sense of ephemeral that pervades and characterizes the scenography.
The fantastic illusion appears instead, in an inimitable way, on the backdrops and on the panels painted with the unmistakable pictorial graphic sign that becomes the leading motif of all of his shows.
The quotations and most of the pictures here showed are taken from the book La mia scena è un bosco
(My Scene is a Wood) (Titivillus Publisher
, 2003), that exposes an articulated interview by Andrea Mancini in which Luzzati looks back at his own artistic and private life.
