EXHIBITION | Materia Oscura by Paolo Canevari @ Palazzo Collicola
Oct 31 all-day

curated by Marco Tonelli and Lorenzo Fiorucci
Open to the public from 4 July (15.30) to 13 September 2020
Appartamento Nobile, Palazzo Collicola – Spoleto

Project realised thanks to the Exhibit Program | Directorate General for Contemporary Creativity of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism

Opening hours:
October: from Thursday to Monday 10.00-13.00 / 15.30-19.00

Although all of Paolo Canevari‘s work can naturally be said to be “in black” and has always been conveying obscure contents, no one would ever think to relate it to disturbing facts of our existence exactly when we experience them. But art has a role in history, especially when it tells us something profound about the times we live in, like them or not; in this sense Canevari’s work is as relevant as ever.

The black hole of the pandemic that has shaken the world’s economy, affections, social relations, vision of public and private life, is in some ways an integral part of the tragic and recurring stories that characterize our global era: Canevari’s work lies exactly in this flow.

An articulated exhibition at Palazzo Collicola, in a path that winds from outside the museum with a real symbol (a sculpture unpublished and specially made for the occasion) of the freedoms suspended during months of lockdown around the world and of the many losses that have made the US the nation with the highest number of victims (100.000 at the time of writing): the Freedom of the Monuments of Memory cycle (the statue that illuminates the world, better known as the Statue of Liberty) landed on the external base of the sculpture in Piazza Collicola. While waiting to get up again in a definitive way, the work presents itself as a monument not to forget, to remember and to overcome a collective mourning and an evil that is not yet defeated.

A sign that contemporary art can and must at times confront us with the hardest and most tragic reality, communicating the violence of our times without rhetoric, without false embellishments, even at the cost of posing as an anxious, perturbing object.

Materia oscura (Dark Matter) unwinds then inside the Piano Nobile of Palazzo Collicola, following a path that sees the exhibition of more recent works (sculptures and drawings) from the Monumenti della memoria cycle created between 2016 and 2020 (Vasi, Altare, Tappeto, Landscape), historical sculptures such as Lupe Romane, ThANKS, Colossei and J.M.B. and a selection of video works from the 2000s inspired by the theme of fire such as Burning Skull, Burning Gun, Burning Colosseum, Burning Mein Kampf.

In the contrast between the magnificence of the Appartamento Nobile, the 18th century residence of the Collicola family, rich in antique paintings, gilded frames, frescoes and precious marbles, and Canevari’s “dirty”, cathartic work, a mechanism of alarm, emergency, surprise is intentionally set in motion, keeping the conscience of history awake, in a continuous, interrupted flow back and forth between past, present and future.

Paolo Canevari (Rome, 1963). After graduating from the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, in 1999 he participated in the XIII Quadriennale in Rome and in 2000 he had solo exhibitions in Rome at the Stefania Miscetti Gallery and the Center for Academic Resources in Bangkok. In 2001 he held solo exhibitions in Siena at the Palazzo delle Papesse and many others between 2002 and 2019 at the Christian Stein Gallery in Milan. In 2004 he held the solo show Welcome to OZ at P.S.1 in New York curated by Alanna Heiss, in 2006 A Couple of Things I Have to Tell You at the Sean Kelly Gallery in New York and presented the work Rubber Car at MART in Trento and Rovereto as part of the exhibition Mitomacchina, and also participated in the Peace Tower project at the Whitney Museum of American Art Biennale in New York.

In 2007 he exhibited at MACRO in Rome with the solo show Paolo Canevari – Nothing from Nothing, and participated in the LII Venice Biennale curated by Robert Storr with the video Bouncing Skull, which will become part of the permanent collection of the MoMA in New York. In 2008 he held the solo show Decalogo at the Istituto Centrale per la grafica-Calcografia Nazionale in Rome, while in 2010 he held the solo show Paolo Canevari – Nobody Knows at the Pecci Museum in Prato, curated by Germano Celant and the solo show Odi et Amo at the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna in Rome. In 2011 the solo show Decalogue at the historic institution The Drawing Center in New York is curated by Brett Littman and in 2015 it is included in Arts&Foods. Rituals since 1851, curated by Celant at the Triennale di Milano, as part of the events of Expo Milano.

In 2015 the permanent work Souvenir is presented at the Olnick Spanu Art Program space in Garrison (New York) and in 2018 he is invited to the first Bangkok Biennale. His drawings from the 1990s series Memoria Mia are published in the book of short stories I tacchini non ringraziano by Andrea Camilleri.

Monday 8 and Tuesday 9 March: four events streamed on YouTube and Facebook

To mark International Women’s Day, the City of Spoleto has organised four events on Monday 8 and Tuesday 9 March.

The programme, which can be followed by videoconference and in streaming on the social channels of the Authority (Facebook and YouTube), includes two conferences, a concert and a short film dedicated to Italian theatres.

The first appointment will be with Women in Institutions, a conference that will be broadcast live via streaming on the City’s YouTube channel (https://bit.ly/38alu7b) on Monday 8 March at 4 p.m.. The meeting, which will be coordinated by the deputy mayor and councillor for equal opportunities Beatrice Montioni and the councillor for culture Ada Urbani, will be attended by Paola Agabiti (councillor of the Umbria Region), Elisa Sabbatini (mayor of Castel Ritaldi), Roberta Galassi (school manager), Candia Marcucci (director of the Umbrian Reclamation Consortium) and Emilia Bellina (former President of the Court of Spoleto).

As part of the “Musica c’è” project, on Monday 8 March at 6 p.m. there will be a concert entitled Women in music by the teachers of the “A. Onofri” Spoleto School of Music and Dance with Mariangela Campoccia (soprano) and Simona Granelli (piano). The concert will be broadcast on the city’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/ComunediSpoleto).

On Tuesday 9 March at 4 p.m. the conference Women and sport: from myth to modernity will be broadcast live on YouTube. Participants include Beatrice Montioni (deputy mayor and councillor for equal opportunities), Caterina Grifoni (president FIDAPA BPW Italy, Spoleto section) and Romanella Gentili Bistoni (past president FIDAPA BPW Italy, Alta Valle del Tevere section).

The last appointment (9 March at 6 p.m.) will be the short film dedicated to all Italian theatres Applausi. Eco-sustainable haute couture rekindles the stage lights with Giorgia Battistoni, Yuri Napoli, Fabiola Gaudio (violin) and Maestro Lorenzo Porzio (music and piano). The short film is produced by Multimedia Communication, directed by Matteo Cuccu and the screenplay by Maria Costici.

Despite the restrictions and the impossibility of organising, as in the past, a programme of appointments to be lived in presence – said deputy mayor Beatrice Montioni – we managed to realise two occasions of confrontation on the role of women in institutions and in the world of sport, with the intention of providing everyone with elements of knowledge and food for thought useful for understanding the value of gender equality, in a context in which the persistence of discrimination against women and girls is not only a violation of a fundamental human right, but is also a limitation to the achievement of the condition necessary to finally have a prosperous, sustainable and peaceful world.”

The Comedy and its comments – From Jacopo di Dante to Cristoforo Landino @ online
Apr 17 @ 11:00
<!--:it-->La Commedia e i suoi commenti - Da Jacopo di Dante a Cristoforo Landino <!--:--><!--:en-->The Comedy and its comments - From Jacopo di Dante to Cristoforo Landino<!--:--> @ online

Included in the Dante in the Lands of the Duchy initiatives organised by the “Giosuè Carducci” City Library and the State Archives of Perugia on the occasion of the 700th anniversary of the death of Dante Alighieri, on Saturday 17 April at 11.00 a.m. Prof. Rodney Lokaj, professor of Italian philology at the University of Enna “Kore”, will hold a videoconference on the Divine Comedy and its commentaries, a long exegetical tradition that has accompanied Dante’s masterpiece since the death of the “Greatest Poet”.

Prof. Lokaj’s lecture covers a period of time that goes from Jacopo Alighieri’s commentary to Cristoforo Landino’s very successful one, son of the culture of Neoplatonism, of which the Carducci library preserves a precious incunabulum dated 1484.

Rodney Lokaj’s videoconference will be available on the Facebook and YouTube channels of the City of Spoleto.

A second lecture by Prof. Lokaj will be dedicated, in the coming months, to the figure of Giovanni di ser Buccio, a scholar from Spoleto who was among the commentators of the Commedia in the early 1400s.

The programme of initiatives of “Dante in the lands of the Duchy”, opened last March with the inauguration, in the covered courtyard of Palazzo Mauri, of an exhibition of incunabula, sixteenth-century editions, precious illustrated editions, maps and documents with specific reference to the relationship between Dante and the territory of Spoleto, will continue until December 2021 with conferences, concerts, readings aloud, activities with schools, to conclude with the publication of a catalogue.

Reading paths on Dante among the library’s new acquisitions. For those who want to take reading paths on Dante and the Comedy, the Carducci Library indicates some recently published books, among the new volumes available for loan.

Two great scholars of Italian literature, Marco Santagata and Giulio Ferroni, deal with the Divine Comedy, the first offering a useful guide to orientate oneself in the vast universe of the allegorical poem, the second literally making a journey in stages along the peninsula, to sound out the geography and the many places treated or cited in the work. Dante’s encyclopaedic culture and attention to nature are revealed in a text by Angelo Manitta that deals with botany and plants in the Comedy. One of the most highly regarded historians of our time, Alessandro Barbero chisels out a portrait of Dante focusing on his dimension as a man of the Middle Ages. There is also an ironic reinterpretation of Dante’s Inferno by Tommaso Cerno who, aided by Makkox’s biting drawings, recounts the politics and power of Italy at the dawn of the Third Republic.

Rodney Lokaj’s CV. A graduate of Melbourne and Perugia, former student of the classical philologist and Dante scholar Giorgio Brugnoli in Rome, Rodney Lokaj is of Australian origin but a naturalised Italian. He is currently Professor of Italian Philology at the University of Enna ‘Kore’ in Sicily, known worldwide as a scholar of Franciscanism, Dante, Petrarch, Castiglione, Falcone, Bembo, Humanism and the reception of the classical tradition. On Dante, in particular, he has published on the illustrious vernacular, Gianni Schicchi, Piccarda Donati, Saint Francis, and the Veltro. He regularly participates in international conferences in Italy, Europe, North America and Australia. He has long-standing collaborations with the Vatican Library, the State Archives of Perugia, the Saint of Padua, in Poland, China and Spain. He is a member of the scientific committee of numerous journals and scientific academies at national and international level, including: the Deputazione di Storia Patria per l’Umbria, the Società Dantesca Italiana, the executive committee of the North American Society of Neo-Latin Studies. He has collaborated on numerous projects at the Giosuè Carducci Library in Palazzo Mauri, including the Lecturae Dantis.

64th FESTIVAL OF TWO WORLDS @ Spoleto
Jun 25 all-day
<!--:it-->64° FESTIVAL DEI DUE MONDI<!--:--><!--:en-->64th FESTIVAL OF TWO WORLDS<!--:--> @ Spoleto

64° Festival of Two Worlds
from June 25th to July 11th 2021
www.festivaldispoleto.com

From www.festivaldispoleto.com:

The sixty-fourth edition of the Spoleto Festival dei Due Mondi, the first programmed by artistic director Monique Veaute, opens on Friday 25 June 2021. Founded by Gian Carlo Menotti in 1958, Italy’s oldest performing arts festival once again transforms the city of Spoleto into a stage: from 25 June to 11 July, 60 performances, all Italian premieres, feature more than 500 artists from 13 countries in 15 venues, with some of the world’s best artists and companies offering an uninterrupted flow of music, opera, dance, theatre, allowing audiences to discover the unexpected.

Performances, discussions with artists, collateral events and debates shine a light on contemporary society, illuminating its diversity and complexity. This year at Spoleto, the first edition of Rai’s Festival per il sociale places themes including environmental and economic sustainability, social cohesion and inclusion, the role of women, the new generations and the value of memory at the heart of the discussion.

Dante, Stravinskij, Strehler, Pina Bausch and some of the great classics of the theatre repertoire form a bridge between the past and the future, projected forwards in time thanks to the interpretations of great artists and companies from Iván Fisher to Antonio Pappano, from the Budapest Festival Orchestra to the Accademia di Santa Cecilia, from Mourad Merzouki to Angelin Preljocaj, from Francesco Tristano to Brad Mehldau, from Flora Détraz to Jonas&Lander, from Liv Ferracchiati to Lucien Øyen, from Romeo Castellucci to Robert Lepage to Lucia Ronchetti, and by participants in residencies run by La MaMa Spoleto Open and the Accademia Silvio d’Amico.

There are exhibitions at Palazzo Collicola, while discussions organized by Fondazione Carla Fendi, concerts at the Casa Menotti and numerous collateral events introduce visitors to some of the most beautiful hidden corners of this city.

The 64th edition of the Festival of Two Worlds welcomes live audiences in absolute security. While the health situation means there are restrictions on the number of available tickets, a calendar of online appointments will be streamed via the Digital Stage so that those who cannot attend physically can still take part. A festival which brings people together, creating new opportunities for dialogue and reflection.

from 25 June to 12 September

La mostra del Festival dei 2 Mondi aperta fino a domenica 12 settembre. Ingresso gratuito per i residenti di Spoleto

The exhibition-tribute that brings to light documents, photographs, old sketches, costumes and stage furnishings that have made the history of the Festival dei Due Mondi has been extended until Sunday 12 September to allow tourists and residents to admire real pieces of art made by the skilled hands of the Festival’s costume designers that have followed over the years.

The exhibition, curated by Piero Maccarinelli, aims to highlight the fundamental work of the craftsmen-artists without whom the festival would not have achieved the international prestige that has distinguished it. It is a first eclectic survey of costumes selected from the thousands in the festival’s storehouse and represents a preview of the work that will be developed more organically in the coming years, according to thematic cycles.

The exhibition, housed in Palazzo Collicola’s rooms, is open from Friday to Sunday from 10.30 to 13.00 and from 15.30 to 19.00.

Admission:
€ 5,00 (full price)
