Partner John Moore

Veniero Colasanti (21 July 1910 – 3 June 1996) was an Italian costume designer, set decorator and art director.[1] He was nominated for an Academy Award in the category Best Art Direction for the film El Cid.[2] During the 1960s and 1970s, he also worked for the Salzburg Festivals where he designed the settings for Il rappresentazione die anima e di corpo, Der Rosenkavalier and Jedermann in cooperation with John Moore.

The work of Broadway's gay and lesbian artistic community went on display in 2007 when the Leslie/Lohman Gay Art Foundation Gallery presents "StageStruck: The Magic of Theatre Design." The exhibit was conceived to highlight the achievements of gay and lesbian designers who work in conjunction with fellow gay and lesbian playwrights, directors, choreographers and composers. Original sketches, props, set pieces and models — some from private collections — represent the work of over 60 designers, including Colasanti & Moore.
