Emiliano Pellisari’s style derives from studies which goes from Hellenistic theatre to the extraordinary theatre of the Renaissance and the mechanic inventions of the seventeenth century. It readopts the grand Baroque Italian tradition of the theatre of marvels: a time when the artist’s studios, which emerged in Italian cities such as Florence, Rome or Milan designed and built extraordinary apparatuses that were masterfully applied by the great Italian artist-artisans in their mise-en-scenes to enchant the courts of whole Europe.
When his putative father, the journalist and writer Nanni Filippini, died, the young Emiliano was obliged to stop his studies in Philosophy and to start working as a carpenter, plumber, electrician….all in all as a real theatre artisan.
By that time, Emiliano Pellisari devoted himself to his own theatre creations and started working as theatre director. He conceived and created the NoGravity technique and began his new artistically path with the show “Daimon Project” which was presented at International Art Center in Moscow at 2005.
