Author and theater director.
He began working as an assistant director for Gian Carlo Celli at Dionysus Theatre
participating in 1967, the first and only edition of an offspin of the Spoleto Festival,
beginning his research in the avant-garde theater.
After experiences of militant/theatre with the group ' Birds ' and the artists of the
‘L’Attico’ gallery, in 1971 he begins an independent activity at the historic 72 Beat,
featuring the place-cellar as a point of reference for experimental theater in Rome.
With Ulisse Benedetti and Mario Romano, just in 1972 at the Beat, he created intense
seasons of shows, performances, events, ideas and cultural projects, not only in theater
but also in music, poetry, art, in continuity with the ideas of the movement of '
historical avant-garde’, beginning a happy period for the Italian scene, with the rise of a
large part of his best energies: from Carmelo Bene to the duo De Berardinis - Peragallo ,
from Giuliano Vasilicò to Meme Perlini, to many others.
In those years Carella has produced many shows: ‘Morte Funesta’ by Dario Bellezza, ‘La
Bella Addormentata’ by Elio Pagliarani, ‘Bis-Happening’ by Kaprow and Withman,
‘Scarface’, ‘Cavalli di Battaglia’ and ‘Stalker’ with Victor Cavallo…
At the same time he gave life, always at the Beat '72, to music initiatives such as, for
example, 'Mondays of Modern and Contemporary Art'; 'Songs and Views of the Magnetic
Garden' by Alvin Curran, the historic conference on "The Song of protest" in November
1966 with Luigi Tenco and Lucio Dalla; 'Opening Concerts', 'East-West Music', 'India-
America' at the Sala Borromini in Rome; 'Concerts for Instrument protagonist' at the
Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna.He also was, in 1979, creator and organizer - with
Ulisse Benedetti, Mario Romano, Franco Cordelli - the famous 'International Festival of
Poets' at Castelporziano (and subsequent editions).
The most recent show, which he created and directed the Teatro India in Rome in 2001,
was: ‘al suo Poeta: Peppe er Tosto’ inspired by the “Sonetti Romaneschi” by Gioacchino
