Duilio Cambellotti and Greek theater

Eclectic Roman artist Duilio Cambellotti (1876-1960) started collaborating with Istituto nazionale del dramma antico (National Ancient Drama Institute, or INDA) in 1914. His work helped launch the Institute’s activities and brought open-air classic shows back to the public: he designed the sets for Aeschylus’s “Agamennon”, which was performed in the Greek Theater in Syracuse on April 16th to 19th, 1914.

Until the 1940s, Cambellotti designed sets for theater as well as cinema, and created posters and billboards for many theater pieces.

Here is a selection of his best works.
