The theater has always attracted the public because of the magnetism of the performance and the strange mystery of theatrical make-believe. Artists have always been lured by this wonderful fascination. The scholarly text by Maurizio Fagiolo dell'Arco guides us to the discovery of the relationship between art and theater from the second half of the nineteenth century until today. From Diaghilev's Ballets Russes, for which first Benois, then Larionov and Goncarova, created the highly colorful sets, up to Picasso and the Cubists', Balla and the Futurists' break with the avant-gardes. Through very famous works and plays like Oedipus Rex, Tales of Hoffmann, Armida and The Puritans, and other less-known ones like Iphigenia and The Jar, it is possible to get to know and appreciate the work of artists like Giacomo Balla, Giorgio de Chirico, Alberto Savinio, Pablo Picasso, Giulio Paolini and Enzo Cucchi. The latter's work inspired one of the greatest Italian photographers, Mario Giacomelli, who has taken a series of photographs also published in this volume.
