Luigi Pirandello
Carlo Cecchi presented L’uomo, la bestia e la virtù for the first time in 1976. The variants were countless: at least in the ‘80/81, ‘81/‘82, ‘86/‘87 and ‘87/’88 seasons. In 1991 he also did a fine TV version.
Cecchi’s encounter with the grotesque in Pirandello meant realizing one of his most successful stage works, even if it was maybe Cecchi’s special approach that made this “tragedy drowned in farce” so totally grotesque. “I used the text – Cecchi said in a 1976 interview – but changed its slant, introducing a total detachment of the public’s identification with the hero.”
