notebooks / articles / docutainment

Our "Notebooks" were essentially created to act as a means of support to the study of scenography. They are therefore an added value for those who attend courses remotely at this very difficult time for education in general, due to Covid.
A part of this material is already available in our archive, but other documents, updated, will be selected and published during the new year.

The first document is already available here, it’s an in-depth illustrated article on all the projects of an Italian set designer whose name is inextricably linked to the work of a great director, maestro Maurizio Scaparro, a pillar of great contemporary Italian theatre. The set designer in question is Roberto Francia. (1938-2009). The creator of sets of unforgettable productions, staged in European theatres, such as the Don Quixote, fragments of a theatrical discourse or the renowned Galileo by Bertolt Brecht.

Hugo de Hana’s direction can be considered “baroque” due to the excessive visual elements, “symbolical” for the constant reference to symbolic elements, “visionary” where fantastic representations prevail. In any case and in every case it is always precise, never vague or sketchy; indeed it is in these very qualities, in its profound harmony with the “immeasurable” poem, that lie its expressive richness and its extraordinary capacity to capture the collective imagination.

“Starting from Goethe is fundamental for me. The presentation of ‘’The Prologue’’ is one method of justifying the concept of my performances while demonstrating to the public the wonder of the prologue itself. It is the essence of Faust. Goethe’s theatrical philosophy produced a work to be read rather than to be performed. The Prologue emphasizes that the spatiality of the universe is reflected in that of the theatre: the geometry of the theatre reflects that of the heavens."
