The goal of this dissertation is to use Giorgio Strehler's Goldoni productions (and Arlecchino servitore di due padroni in particular) as a means to defining his directorial aesthetic. The purpose behind this dissertation is to provide a framework for examining the director's career that is expansive rather than restrictive, using Goldoni and Arlecchino servitore di due padroni as a through-line for Strehler's fifty-year career at the Piccolo Teatro di Milano. The importance of this research is to define Strehler's multifaceted style and bring to light interrelationships among his various works, creating a base from which a variety of subsequent critical inquiries can be made. It also establishes Strehler's identity within the larger scope of the Italian theatre as a whole. Finally, it creates the critical challenge of finding more expansive notions of directorial style and concept that unite diverse ideologies without restrictively delimiting our understanding of the director. Crucial to understanding Strehler's work with Arlecchino servitore di due padroni is his consistent reinterpretation of the play, which received no less than five distinct productions during Strehler's lengthy career. The importance of his repeated reworking of existing productions is that it provides a baseline for examining what elements were maintained and what elements changed or evolved. The four key influences that defined Strehler's aesthetic in his work with Arlecchino were commedia dell'Arte, Brecht, "refractive theatricality" and Copeau. Rather than treating the seemingly disparate aesthetic elements as separate periods in Strehler's career, this dissertation uses a single play as a lens for examining and unifying these elements
