Gaetano Castelli

  • Born: (Rome, Lazio, Italy)

Gaetano Castelli is an Italian painter and scenographer.

He is one of the most important set designers in the world and is unanimously considered the most important television set designer.

He began his activity as a scenographer in 1964 when, at a very young age, he joined a RAI that has existed for less than ten years and his career marks the scenes (and history) of Italian television for more than fifty years, signing shows that have made the history of television.

Awarded several times at the Montreux International Television Festival, in 1980 he received the Silver Rose and twice - in 1984 and 2000 - he received the Golden Rose, which rewards originality, quality and creativity and still sets the standard for entertainment television. Since 1983 he has worked in Paris as a set designer first for the Lido and then since 1986 for the Moulin Rouge of which he is now the artistic director.

He currently holds conferences and debates on scenography in all the most important countries in the world (China, Iran, England, Albania and many others), putting his experience and his art at the service of the new generations.
