Non solo Lorca. Il teatro spagnolo nella rivista Sipario (1970-80)
This article examines Italian reception of Spanish and Spanish-American theatre in the pages of Sipario, an important Italian magazine of performing arts, with particular attention to the 1970s. This is a significant period in Spanish history, characterised by the transition from dictatorship to democracy, and it is interesting to observe how the historical contingency influenced the critical reception in those years. The work focuses both on the reception of performances and on essays and contributions of a critical nature published in the journal. Through a detailed review of articles and reviews, this article intends to reconstruct a picture of the presence of Hispanic culture in this specialised magazine and offer a critical reading of it.
