Abstract

The paper retraces the debates and history of theatre as a form of political and social engagement in Italy, starting with the foundation of the first public theatre in 1947, the Piccolo Teatro di Milano. The heart of the problem was, and still is: what is there before, during and after the performance? An indistinct audience? An anonymous crowd? Or a community? But which community? Active, committed, responsible, open to the future. A choir fighting for freedom.
