ITALIAN COMMEDIA DELL 'ARTE

Five archetypical characters traditionally performed in traveling Theatre Shows throughout Italy during the Renaissance period. These characters were the precursor to our 'Punch and Judy' Shows, and the French Harlquinade characters. They also later became models for America's own Vaudeville characters.

Each masked character in the Commedia dell'Arte style has certain traditional characteristics which must be incorporated to be authentic. Playing in half mask is different from any other styles of acting, and although they are related, the half mask is profoundly different from mime, clown, and full-faced mask.

Dottore, from Bologna, has a mask which covers only the nose and forehead. It can be brown or black. Arlecchino, from Bergamo, is a poor boy from the mountains with a hard head, big appetite and black face from laboring in the sun and cleaning chimneys. He always has a carbuncle on his forehead where his master beats him.?Pulcinella is from Naples and the mask reflects his name: day-old chicken. Columbina, from the Veneto around Venice, also plays without a mask. However, both her name and her character are based on the dove. Young Boy/young lover, from Florence plays without a mask but with big glasses.
