Il ritorno a casa
English “low middle class”: that was the “caption”. Faithfully reconstructed with an eye to Naples, it accompanies a great staging by Carlo Cecchi, with a strong English/Neapolitan flavor.
The director, Alberto Rosselli, imagined places that would lead to a feeling of comprssion and restlessness, to return Strindberg’s text in spatial terms. The characters are forced by internal paths, made physical by the scene/labyrinth that almost shows the public theri secrets.
This labyrinth is the metaphor of all their family relationships, of the changing hierachies. The 40-square-meter inclined platform is acted out as if it were a space, a single space which expresses the relationships between the characters.
Studio Benaim worked on the scenes of The homecoming, texts by Harold Pinter, directed by Carlo Cecchi, Teatro Niccolini in Florence, 1982, scenes by Studio Benaim.
