|Register Now: ART OF THE MASK IN THE COMMEDIA DELL'ARTE WORKSHOP (June 23 - July 19)
29th International Workshop
|Click image to open pdf|
The work of the Sartori dates back to the post-war period (1945-47) when the Italian intellectual world renewed its desire to recover the origins of its cultural history. So the Italian sculptor Amleto Sartori started a long period of experimental research on the masks of the Italian Commedia, its characters and the construction techniques forgotten for more than two centuries, which was to bring him to the re-discovery, though it would be more precise to say the re-invention, not only of the ancient manufacturing technique for the leather masks but also of its artistic significance. Amleto died at the height of his activity, but he left his son Donato a heritage of cultural and technical knowledge which, keeping up the tradition of the ancient "bottega dell'arte", is carried out and perfected by adapting it to the needs of contemporary society. Donato started an intense collaboration with Barrault, Eduardo de Filipo, Strehler, Lecoq, Dario Fo and Peter Oskarson, creating masks for their performances. He dealt with experimental research in the field of sculpture and the graphic arts: his works can be found in various Modern Art Museums in Venice, New York, Tokyo, Mexico City, Paris and took active part in international cultural events with cultural activities.
In 1979, together with the scenographer Paolo Trombetta and the architect Paola Piizzi, he founded the CENTRO MASCHERE E STRUTTURE GESTUALI. Set up as a multi-disciplinary research group, it studies the various ethnological, anthropological and spectacular aspects which involve the reality of the masks as a whole and, in a progressive evolution, it stretches beyond the creation of body masks and gestural structures and brings us right up to the environmental masking or urban masking. The Centre has held exhibitions, workshops and performances in the United States, South America, Canada, Japan, China, Russia, Africa, Indonesia and throughout Europe.
