The Cerratelli Foundation (San Giuliano Terme, Pisa) has an archive of approximately 30,000 costumes made by the eponymous Florentine costumier (1914-1995) for opera, dance, drama and cinema. These Italian articles, made in Tuscany, are a record of a singular relationship between costume and the performing arts during the Twentieth Century.
The Cerratelli costumier, a business enterprise set up in Florence during the First World War by baritone Arturo Cerratelli, drove the development of theatrical art throughout the Twentieth Century. The founder’s entourage included the composers Giacomo Puccini and Pietro Mascagni, who paved the way for Cerratelli’s great partnership with opera. Cerratelli’s clients included some of the greatest names in the history of stage costumes: from the pioneering director Jacques Copeau to Italian maestri such as Giorgio Strehler, Eduardo De Filippo, Luchino Visconti. Franco Zeffirelli, whose creativity enhanced the artistic potential of the Casa d’Arte Cerratelli, is now the Honorary
Chairman of the Cerratelli Foundation. Training is one of the priorities of the Cerratelli Foundation, which also organises advanced courses on the specific technical and cultural skills involved in costume design.
