Art Director // Mr. Cognatti a unique, appreciated and extraordinarily communicative author

Lorenzo Cognatti

Art Director

The matching between the different stage disciplines, the accentuated visionary directing, the original synthesis drama and the constant dialectic between both dynamics and spectacular aesthetic depth makes Mr. Cognatti a unique, appreciated and extraordinarily communicative author.  

His broad-range creativity includes many processes that go from classical theatre to the writing of original works, which also created in him the poetic dimension that brought him to write several books about contemporary drama. In 2000 he founded the Gruppo Jobel, which works directly with a number of national and international partners.

His works are presented in some of the most famous theaters in Italy (Paul VI conference room at the Vatican, the Teatro Argentina in Rome, the Teatro Carcano in Milan, the Piccini of Bari).

He has realized art projects in several countries such as Italy, Japan, India, United States, Poland and Brazil.

Aiming and broadening this experimental spirit into the pedagogical side, he created in 1990 the articulated “Arteam” network of schools stage, that is present in various Italian cities and has its headquarters in Rome (Bottega delle Arti Creative); he has also founded the Bottega Theatre of Rome and the Jobel Cultural Center for the production and promotion of the performing arts in Europe in Torricella in Sabina (Rieti).
