Dispositivo Mulas: le fotografie per Vita di Galileo di Giorgio Strehler tra documento e modello

Cosimo Chiarelli (Università di Pisa)


For the staging of Brecht’s Life of Galileo directed by Giorgio Strehler at the Piccolo Teatro in Milan in 1963-1964, Ugo Mulas developed a rigorous model of photographic documentation based on a strictly serial or ‘automatic’ protocol, which marked a point of no return in the history of stage photography. Based on archival materials from various institutions, this essay analyzes the background and development of Mulas’ approach to Brecht’s play in the general framework of theatre documentation and as new starting point for his subsequent research.
