MUSICHE DI SCENA E TEATRO DI REGIA. FIORENZO CARPI E GLI SPETTACOLI GOLDONIANI DI GIORGIO STREHLER [Tesi di dottorato]
Università degli Studi di Milano, 2012-07-10

Sound design is an essential part of contemporary theatre, despite the lack of studies devoted to musical scores in theatrical plays. Since the early 20th century, music has become an unavoidable element (as well as set pieces, costumes etc.), of the 'text' of the play, contributing to its sense and its global reception. This is why it doesn't come as a surprise that Fiorenzo Carpi - the well trained composer who started to collaborate with Piccolo Teatro in Milan since the very beginning of its activity - is considered one of Giorgio Strehler's closest partners. Over the years, the director has often mentioned the crucial importance of Carpi's work in his letters and interviews. The real impact of Carpi's contribution however, can be measured directly in the text. The study analyzes Carpi's work, attending in a particular way to those plays of Goldoni directed by Giorgio Strehler, mise-en-scenes that were fundamental in the Piccolo Teatro's history e with whom the director focused what is called his 'poetical realism', which uses music to convey an universal meaning from the realistic object. The musical production follows, through the time, the different readings of the director; now music is connected to the movement, now it creates spaces. Moreover, form such mise-en-scenes it rises the muscian's and director's vision of the Eighteenth Century world. To deepen that main theme, this study has broaden to the analysis of musics composed by Carpi for other theatrical plays or else movies related that same century. First by the original autographic scores by Fiorenzo Carpi, held in the Piccolo Teatro Historical Archive, then by analyzing 'secondary' sources such as press reviews, TV videos, tapes, photographs, programmes or playbills, the study tries to explain the complex double paternity of the music, child of the composer and of the director, a music, whose sense is realized only in the synthesis of the staging.
