After finishing architecture studies, he approached theatre art by realising the costumes for Casa di Bambola and L’opera da 3 soldi, two plays directed by Giorgio Strehler at Piccolo Teatro in the 1955-56 theatre season. From then on a fertile artistic marriage started between art director and producer, setting up several unique productions as I giganti della montagna (1966), Santa Giovanna dei macelli (1970), Re Lear (1972), Il temporale (1980), L’Illusion Comique, which premiered in 1984 at Théatre de l’Odéon in ParisLa grande magia, which premiered in 1985 and was reprised several times.


The great Italian set-designer died today.
Frigerio leaves us a huge cultural and artistic legacy, having worked all his life as a trusted set designer for great artists, first and foremost Giorgio Strehler.
Ten times he signed the opening of the season at @teatroallascala and many other applauded shows in Spain, France, England, New York, often working on light, in the essential research of space and its continuous struggle between light and darkness.

Fabrizio Turba wrote 

A great man of international fame Ezio Frigerio has left us, dean of the scenography, who worked with great records from lyric, to theater, to cinema.
Frigerio for his city, Erba, had a special gift in store: a museum of history and art to be built in Villa Candiani.
Sending my deepest condolences to the family and loved ones.
