A journey into the career of Giorgio Strehler, through voices and hitherto unreleased reminiscences from the Rai archive. Thanks to this extraordinary contribution, interwoven with images of performances, interviews, and reflections on art and the theatre, Strehler's story is enhanced with essential information for understanding the man, the artist, and his legacy. The movie reveals childhood memories, his impact with theatre, his most famous productions, the battles of the Teatro Piccolo, his relationship with set designers, his friendship with various actors and actresses, his private sphere, and the symbiosis between art and life. “Strehler, what is the night like? Clear.” These are the final lines of Vita di Galileo by Brecht, one of the most popular plays staged at the Piccolo Teatro. And it could be the question we'd like to ask Giorgio Strehler today, a light what helps us navigate not only the history of theatre, but that of Italian culture, as well.
