Abstract

The contribution investigates the lesser-known phase of the presence of German drama at the Piccolo Teatro di Milano (first decade). Before Giorgio Strehler's Brechtian productions and before the beginning of a real revolution for Italian theatre (which is briefly outlined here), Paolo Grassi and the young director were the protagonists of a sort of preliminary work on German Drama between Vormärz and Expressionism on the page (editions and translations) and on the stage (productions) in the 1940s-50s. As a result of this, Büchner was staged in Italy for the first time in an effective way. In particular, Strehler's work on Büchner's "Dantons Tod" is re-evaluated here in its historical and aesthetic significance.
