This paper reconstructs the life and works of one of the greatest exponents of the second half of the 20th century theatrical scene, an artist of international fame and prominence. Intensely loved as much as viscerally contested, Carmelo Bene belongs to the tradition of the Grande Attore that he himself blows up through a parodic point of view, so setting up a very original synthesis of past and innovation which reveals the 20th century inability to adhere to a unified vision of the world.
