Spoleto a Colori, the most colourful event in Spoleto will paint the city next Apr 22 – 25: Art, dance, sport and music will enliven the city involving citizens, tourists, schools, artists, sport and cultural associations.

Spoleto a Colori offers a thick schedule of initiatives, including concerts, dj-sets, street artists, animation for children and grown-ups, dance, photo competitions and excursions.

On April 22 the first show entirely produced by Spoleto a Colori will be staged at the Teatro Nuovo Gian Carlo Menotti in Spoleto: IO ALICE. A show where dance, music and projections will create an original reinterpretation of Lewis Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland.” Tickets can be purchased through the TicketItalia sale network –  www.ticketitalia.com.

You shall not miss the by-now traditional Color Mob of Apr 25, when hundreds of people will gather and throw colour dust in the air and will set themselves free from the greyness of the everyday routine, a moment of collective expression inspired by the Indian springtime Holi feast.

The Entrance Book: THE BAD NEWS, by Luis Gabriel Santiago @ Cinema Sala Pegasus
Apr 11 @ 21:30
<!--:it-->Il Libro d'Ingresso - LA CATTIVA NOVELLA di Luis Gabriel Santiago<!--:--><!--:en-->The Entrance Book: THE BAD NEWS, by Luis Gabriel Santiago<!--:--> @ Cinema Sala Pegasus | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

“Entrance Book”, the experimental event conceived by Luis Gabriel Santiago and Victor Maticora debuts with La Cattiva Novella (The Bad News) and I Figli della Ragione (Sons of Reason) at the Sala Pegasus in Spoleto.

The first appointment is scheduled for Tuesday 11 April at 21.30, featuring LA CATTIVA NOVELLA – Storie Crudeli (Cruel Stories) by Luis Gabriel Santiago, with Pietro Biondi. Drawings: Adriana Sotero. Video: Giovanni Barchi.

Thursday 20 April at 21:30, it’s the turn of I FIGLI DELLA RAGIONE. Pensieri da Taschino (Pocket Thoughts) by Victor Maticora, with Corinna Lo Castro. Narrators: Cristina Antonini, Graziano Sirci. Music: Marco Marino. Video: Giovanni Barchi.

The Entrance Book aims at promoting the production and diffusion of any short literature expression, from tales to commentaries, from aphorisms to epigrams, also including poems, micro dramas, nursery rhymes of any kind, scientific prose or narrative for children.

Its concrete expression will be an actual book included in the price of the event, that will be given to the attendees; the book is also the source of the texts that will be dramatized along with music and video projections, the representations of written words.

The project aims at combining theatre with books, to trigger a literary and theatre microcircuit that will hopefully expand and cross many borders. Its conceivers (Santiago and Maticora), founders of the European Academy of Fictitious Science Fiction (Italian: Accademia Europea della Fanta Fantascienza) resume their multi-disciplinary activity that led to the issuing of a book series between 2000 and 2010, as well as theatre plays, concerts and radio plays, which attracted characters such as Anna Proclemer, Arnoldo Foà, Michele Serra, Ugo Gregoretti, Daniele Formica, Edoardo Albinati to Spoleto and its theatres.

Social firmness can truly depend on the committment to produce art and culture, in an area exhausted by a devastating seismic fury.

Entrance Book: € 8,00

<!--:it-->VISIONI D'AUTORE | Stefano Liberti presenta il suo documentario SOYALISM<!--:--><!--:en-->VISIONI D'AUTORE | Stefano Liberti presents his documentary SOYALISM <!--:--> @ Cinéma Sala Pegasus

Friday, March 29 at 21:00 | Cinéma Sala Pegasus
The director and journalist Stefano Liberti meets the audience of Spoleto for the presentation of the documentary SOYALISM.

The evening is a Visioni d’Autore special event, in collaboration with Coworking Spoleto

THE DOCUMENTARY
In an increasingly overpopulated world, in the grip of climate change, control of food production has become a huge business for a handful of a few giant companies. Following the pork production chain, from China to Brazil via the United States and Mozambique, the documentary describes the enormous movement of power concentration in the hands of these companies, which is taking hundreds of thousands of small producers out of business and permanently transforming entire landscapes. From intensive mega-breeding in China to the Amazon rainforest threatened by soybean crops developed to feed animals confined to sheds on the other side of the world, this process is undermining the social and environmental balances of the planet.
The film had its world premiere on November 18, 2018 at the International documentary film festival in Amsterdam.

STEFANO LIBERTI
Stefano Liberti is an Italian journalist and director. He directed the documentary “L’inferno dei bimbi stregoni” The hell of witch children, winner of L’Anello Debole award in 2010. He wrote “I signori del cibo. Viaggio nell’industria alimentare che sta distruggendo il pianeta” The Lords of food. A journey into the food industry that is destroying the planet (Minimum fax 2016).

Visioni d’Autore is organized by the City of Spoleto, MAIA Cultural Association and Cinéma Sala Pegasus.
