DE CHIRICO ALLA SCALA

DE CHIRICO ALLA SCALA

A cura di Vittoria Crespi Morbio

 

Il giovane Giorgio de Chirico (1888-1978) debutta nel mondo del teatro lavorando per i Ballets Suédois e i Ballets Russes, negli anni Venti. A quell’epoca considera il melodramma un genere in declino. Eppure al teatro musicale dedicherà una parte considerevole della propria carriera artistica, firmando decine di spettacoli per le principali istituzioni italiane. Dagli echi della pittura metafisica a un’idea di “Grand Théâtre” neoclassico e neobarocco, la sua opera di scenografo e figurinista è una sfida in continuo divenire, talvolta vinta, talvolta persa, ma è soprattutto l’autoritratto segreto e problematico di un protagonista dell’arte del Novecento.

OPPO ALLA SCALA

OPPO ALLA SCALA

Curated by Vittoria Crespi Morbio

 

Extremely powerful, feared, and respected under the Fascist regime, Cipriano Efisio Oppo (1891-1962) was almost forgotten after the war, and today his name and his work are scarcely known. He was harmed by his political credo that led him to become a deputy in Parliament and director of the Quadriennale romana, a tireless organiser of events. Yet Oppo was a complex, many-sided figure, willing to promote ‘rebellious’ artists and developing a poetics including his theatre work as scenographer and costume designer that remains a legacy worthy of attention. His stagings at La Scala, in Rome, in Florence, partake of the tradition of Italian painting and assert an Olympian serenity, unperturbed before the tragedies of History.

CORBELLA – THE FIRST ITALIAN MANUFACTURER OF JEWELLERY AND WEAPONS FOR THE THEATRE

CORBELLA – PRIMA FABBRICA ITALIANA DI GIOIELLI ED ARMI PER IL TEATRO

curated by Angelica Corbella, Bianca Cappello

 

The Corbella Company, which proclaimed itself the “First Italian Manufacturer of Jewellery and Weapons for the Theatre”, was founded in 1865 in the heart of Milan. From the very beginning of its long history, it specialized in the production of stage jewellery, weapons and accessories, taking the title of official supplier to Milan’s Teatro alla Scala. It then signed contracts with other prestigious international theatres, from La Fenice in Venice to the Teatro Costanzi in Rome and the Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires.
From the Unification of Italy to the great national and international exhibitions and up until the economic boom, the Corbella family was always in the spotlight, first in the theatre sector, supplying the best-known opera singers, from Margherita Carosio to Renata Tebaldi, and later alongside the great Italian manufacturers of costume jewellery. This book documents some of Corbella’s most extraordinary objects, reconstructing and presenting to enthusiasts a fascinating chapter in the great history of Made in Italy.
