E l’attore entrò in azienda
| COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI - 2005 - 2. Il teatro al lavoro. Teorie e tecniche del teatro nel mondo del lavoro
This paper runs through some personal memories of almost twenty years and the evolution of the relationship
between the theatre and business with its needs in training, communication and problem-solving. It ranges
from the period when ‘Business Theatre’ did not constitute either a clear and experimentable concept, and
even less a conflict of copyright until the subsequent emergence and progressive development of a new practice
that saw theatres and businesses open their doors to each other, often through the mediation of the
immense archipelago of training.
And with the memories there emerge questions and also doubts that have accompanied my exploration
of a territory at first unknown and alien and then gradually more familiar, interesting and stimulating. There
follow, finally, some concluding observations that are intended as a small contribution to a discussion with a
great variety of accents and points of view, about the present expansion of the phenomenon, which is as
dynamic as it was slow in germinating in Italy.
