Costume designers, lute-makers, tailors and jewellers are just some of the protagonists of this itinerary to discover the performing arts professions in the Florence of theatres. These professional craftsmen are recognised the world over for their ability to bring phantasmagorical worlds to life, recreate historical costumes, build dreamlike settings, harness allegories and symbols in precious talismans.
A tour among workshops and workshops that have collaborated with theatres, such as Penko, which developed for the Costumes and Scenes workshop of the Teatro della Pergola the jewellery for recitals on the works of Carlo Goldoni, or the Sartoria Madame Flo, where master craftswoman Vittoria Valzania, specialised in historical costumes, reproduced some outfits for the Florentine Historical Football Parade, in collaboration with Spazio NOTA.
This is just a foretaste of the broader and wider panorama of crafts related to the world of theatre, entertainment and stage performances. Crafts that are intertwined with the many creative expressions in Florence, spread through the network of the city's theatres and stages: from the classical repertoire of the Teatro del Maggio with its opera and symphonic performances, to the Teatro della Pergola with its prose reviews, from the satire of the Teatro Puccini to the experimentation of the Cantiere Florida and so on.
