The title of this article could, in fact, be a valid definition for the complex concept of dramaturgy. But, if in fact we want to understand its meaning, we must first define, with complete precision, each of the words that make up this statement. If not, it will be difficult to grasp its true, deeper, meaning.

 

We will start, therefore, with the word art, which is necessary to understand in the creative sense of course, but first we should understand it in the craft or technical sense. It is (as the dictionary puts it) a skill, an expertise that is acquired through experience, observation, study and, above all, practice. Art is, in fact, the practice of a creative expertise that has become a habit, intuition, certainty.
