Junior Suite n.206
Apartment 206 is dedicated to Giorgio Strehler, one of the most influential personalities of Italian and international theater. He came to Milan when he was very young and met Franco Parenti and Paolo Grassi, other milestones of the Milanese theatre scene. In 1947, together with Nina Vinchi, they founded Il Piccolo Teatro della Città di Milano, creating productions that will remain in the history of theater, such as L'albergo dei poveri by Gorkij and I giganti della montagna by Pirandello. Between 1969 and 1971 Strehler left Il Piccolo Teatro to found the Gruppo Teatro e Azione, but returned in 1972. A deep institutional crisis of the Piccolo Teatro forced him to resign in December 1996. His last production, Così fan tutte, by Mozart, finally in the new location, was interrupted by his death.
