In general, we think of the costume department as a technical one, linked more to the sartorial than to the authorial aspect. Instead, it is one of the most important artistic departments, because a good costume is often what gives shape to the character. Good costume designers must know how to read and analyze a script and use their art to dress the protagonists of the story of a personality, thus helping the actor to better embody the character. And we are not just speaking of historical costumes, those that most affect the attention of the general audience, but also the modern and urban ones, which are often not noticed but that give the characters their own identity.
