The sensational discovery of this work by Grazioso Cecchetti, son of the great Italian ballet master Enrico (1850-1928), is now made extremely valuable since it represents the only direct testimony of the famous Cecchetti method of classical ballet (the Italian School), until now passed down exclusively through the writings of his followers and students. Over 700 original sketches and drawings by the author himself, included in this work, make it a truly complete handbook on the most celebrated and widely used classical dance method in the anglo-saxon world. The work is divided into two volumes, as the original. This first volume is an explanation of theory of the positions, barrre exercises, porte de bras, exercises in the center, poses, adagio movements and adagi.
