It will follow a 'thread' from Greek comedy and tragedy to 20th Century Italian theatre examining, among other things, the role of the actor, author and director. The focus of this topic are 20th Century Italian playwrights Luigi Pirandello and Dario Fo (both Nobel prize-winning writers), and Franca Rame.
