    Bozzetti dei costumi di The Yellow Methuselah di Julian Beck.During the exhibition period will be available some video files on request by the House of dellaBiblioteca Theatres. Can be viewed from Tuesday to Sunday from 11 am to 16.00. From 1977 to 1983, the company has gone through in Italy more than 175 cities and between countries, presenting the Italian public works that changed the character and sense of theater. The political and social engagement in which Beck supplemented her theatrical form met in those years with the radicalization of political discourse in Italy. Shake to get the audience to interact, experiment to awaken the conscience from its torpor, these are the objectives of the artistic sensibilities of Beck, so he told the Italian experience: “As we tried to defile the streets and all groups, parties politicians great and small, the whole anarchist movement, against the tendency to accept terrorism, Americanism, militarism, tradition. As we have dreamed of being useful to the working class movement in search of alternatives. As we tried to seduce with our eros political artists and poets, the theater world and journalists, to induce them to make love with harmony and freedom in all their iridescent mutations. “
