architect massimiliano fuksas has created a greek theatre for the fondazione INDA
(istituto nazionale del dramma antico) in siracusa, italy

according to fuksas the element of thought and inspiration for this scenography was
the horizon. a very simple horizon – he adds- that speaks about the catharsis element
and the landscape, the place and the action for the conscience of the ancient spectators.
as the landscape and the scenery are changed in the course of time, the contained intention
in this scenography is the reconstruction of the lost horizon, staged by a ‘concave blade’
that mirrors all that happens around, that involves the audience, that reflects and invites
to reflect.
