EZIO FRIGERIO

Theatre director, set and costume designer

CONVERSATION WITH EZIO FRIGERIO
Interview by Paolo Felici

There are periods when artistic expression seems suddenly to come alive again. The reason for this can be found inmany and unexpected causes: the joining together of people who are capable of transforming exterior stimuli into something new, the identification of a place in which to operate and a fresh encounter with a knowledgeable public. Just as unexpected are the results that are attained: rapid transformations and new goals which were unforeseen.Ezio Frigerio’s work began during one of these fortunate periods: the beginning of his career as a set and costume designer was linked with a meeting with Giorgio Strehler in 1955 and his collaboration with the Piccolo Teatro in Milan.
