(in Italian with English subtitles)

Gaetano Castelli is one of the most important set designers in the world and is unanimously considered the most important television set designer. He began his activity as a set designer in 1964 when, at a very young age, he joined a RAI that had existed for less than ten years and his career marked the scenes (and history) of Italian television for more than fifty years, designing shows that have made history in television. In addition to having created the set for the first color newscast, he continued to create the scenes for great TV shows and nineteen editions of the Sanremo Festival (hence his nickname “the man of the Festivals”), and great shows with Luciano Pavarotti, Roberto Benigni, Barbra Streisand,  Whitney Huston, etc.

Awarded several times at the Montreux International Television Festival, in 1980 he received the Silver Rose and twice – in 1984 and 2000 – he received the Golden Rose, which rewards originality, quality and creativity and still sets the standard for entertainment television. Since 1983, he has been working in Paris as a set designer first for the Lido and then, since 1986, for the Moulin Rouge, of which he is now artistic director. He taught scenography at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome for 35 years and was its director for 3 years. Currently, he holds conferences and debates on scenography in major states worldwide, putting his experience and his art at the service of the younger generation.
