At the beginning of the 18th century, the Italian scenographer introduced this new stage approach, the so-called “stage per angolo” which abandoned the symmetrical perspective of the stage in favour of a multiple point stage which makes use of more perspectives at once. The stage thus creates a remarkable dominant feature, no longer serving as a space which is fluently linked to the spectator's view of the stage. It provides the audience with more variations and more distinct views, in the same fashion as the entire Baroque period itself.
