If sets used to be made mainly on cloth, today in the stage design workshops, new materials are used more and more often. This transformation has allowed set designers to improve their technical knowledge and to create technologically complex elements. In 2015/2016 Season workshops are improving their commitment realizing nine new Opera productions and three new Ballet productions. Moreover the workshops will work on the adaptations of three Opera productions from other theatres and on the restoreof three repertory productions of Opera and Ballet


This is the department where the various set elements are made. The work preserves all the characteristics of ancient craftsmanship: each handmade piece has the characteristics of a prototype, of a unique product. These creations are made on a full scale drawing.


Besides the large statues, this department is in charge of all the surfaces that cover sets, rocks, bricks, trees and any type of architectural elements.
