We Italians are so famous for our passionate temperament... !:( Can passion be considered part of a particular style?
Unfortunately techinque was/is often lacking in Italian companies (except for the people aubri cited, above all Luciana Savignano, for me a great dancer, some doubts on Carla Fracci's technique) and maybe this is why it's difficult to pick up an Italian style.
Anyway, I don't find such passion in the corps de ballet now but they have much improved in their technique (at least this is what I saw in Nureyev's Nutcracker last December). I must confess that I prefer unison to enthusiasm, but this only my humble opinion. antoP

antoP, I must confess that I'm not very objective when watching ballet in Italy :D

I'm bumping this up, along with the other threads on the different ballet styles for some refreshment.
