The book provides a framework for examining the directors career that is expansive rather than restrictive, using Goldoni and Arlecchino servitore di due padroni as a through-line for Strehlers fifty-year career at the Piccolo Teatro di Milano.

This research defines Strehlers multifaceted style and brings to light interrelationships among his various works, creating a base from which a variety of subsequent critical inquiries can be made. It also establishes Strehlers 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 delimiting our understanding of the director.

Crucial to understanding Strehlers work with Arlecchino servitore di due padroni is his consistent reinterpretation of the play, which received no less than five distinct productions during Strehlers lengthy career. His repeated reworking of existing productions provides a baseline for examining what elements were maintained and what elements changed or evolved.

The four key influences that defined Strehlers aesthetic in his work with Arlecchino were commedia dellArte, Bertolt Brecht, refractive theatricality and Jacques Copeau. Through these productions, Strehler created a dialogue with his audience and helped change the reputation of Carlo Goldoni both in his own country and abroad.
