PHOTO EXHIBITION | The Hidden Theatre. A story in images @ Museo Archeologico e Teatro Romano di Spoleto
Jul 21 2018 – Dec 31 2019 all-day
<!--:it-->MOSTRA FOTOGRAFICA | Il teatro nascosto. Una storia per immagini<!--:--><!--:en-->PHOTO EXHIBITION | The Hidden Theatre. A story in images<!--:--> @ Museo Archeologico e Teatro Romano di Spoleto | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

The exhibition The Hidden Theatre. A story in images is a collection of unpublished photographs dating back to the years of the discovery of the Roman Theatre of Spoleto and its unearthing, from 1938 to 1960.

The exhibition, promoted by the Polo Museale dell’Umbria – Museo Archeologico e Teatro Romano di Spoleto, in collaboration with Astra onlus and the Archivio di Stato di Perugia, section of Spoleto, shows photographs coming from the Accademia Etrusca di Cortona and from the archive of the Museo Archeologico Nazionale dell’Umbria. The exhibition reveals unpublished aspects of the discovery of the Roman theatre and the transformation of the complex of S.Agata from a judicial prison (1867-1957) to a museum.

The history of the monastery of S. Agata – already known thanks to the research of G. Curti, S. Di Sante Coaccioli, S. Gubbiotti, resulting in the 2011 documented book “The Roman Theatre and the former monastery of S.Agata. Chronicle of its transformations” – is now enriched by photographs taken by the then inspector archaeologist Umberto Ciotti, who documented every step of the demolition and excavation work.

Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive, from 27 October 2018 to 24 February 2019
Toru Hamada and Angelo Dozio
Opening: Saturday, October 27 at 12:00

TORU HAMADA – Anthological

The exhibition is curated by Gianluca Marziani and Italo Bergantini, and organized in collaboration with Romberg Contemporanea. After the placement in June, during the Festival dei Due Mondi, of one of his sculptures in Carrara marble in front of the Teatro Nuovo, today comes a large exhibition that tells us about his poetic and inspired painting … The life of Toru Hamada resembles the processing cycle of his art. First of all, one feels the atavistic bond with Japan, ascribable to a state of being that favours atmospheric silence, the firmness of the gaze, the discipline between body and spirit. At the same time, one feels the second homeland in Europe, first in Pietrasanta and then in the French countryside of Saint-Lubin-de-la-Haye, two places of solid culture that have welcomed both the man and the artist. Asia and Europe, two continents that today sum up in this Umbrian experience, in the heart of a Spoleto that has always conceived harmony between distant worlds.

ANGELO DOZIO – The discipline of constant doubt

Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive’s historical investigation continues among Italian artists who deserve a more exhaustive evaluation of their work over ten years. After Gianfranco Chiavacci, Gastone Biggi, Salvatore Emblema and Giuseppe Biasio, it is now the turn of Angelo Dozio with an anthological exhibition set up between the white rooms of the Piano Mostre and the noble furnishings of the Piano Nobile.
The exhibition is curated by Gianluca Marziani: “Reinterpreting the cycles of a long career, Angelo Dozio highlights a consistent value in the theme of transcendence. Technological intuition, the link with town planning and architecture, the implicit presence of sound, the clairvoyance of digital language are present, but in the end there’s a metaphysical suspension that emerges and surpasses the rest, an iconographic system that returns to the lines of the sacred cross, the curves of the Greek and Roman capitals, to the Florentine two-tone marble, to the plan of churches and basilicas, to the design of ideal cities… Dozio’s geometry goes beyond history and climbs into the values of the Absolute, where only painting can get, where design incorporates morality, where Beauty thinks beyond worldly contingencies.”

WHAT
Exempla is an exhibition and a narration of the different possible variants of the discourse on things and objects in everyday life, made by creators who design them and whose uniqueness lies in the gestures of the hands with which they are made. Exempla exhibits artifacts – things produced by craftsmen – capable of maintaining their functional value without losing the beauty and identity most typically related to the unique work. Exempla will show these artifacts/manufactures and will organize meetings with the artists invited to exhibit, seminars on the system of things and objects, book presentations, readings of poets and collective public readings to mark the plural nature of things and highlight the resonances that live in them.
Exempla is an exhibition of savoir-faire and faire-savoir, the beauty of small things in everyday life.

PICASSO. RITRATTO INTIMO – PICASSO. INTIMATE PORTRAIT
Photos by Edward Quinn

15 December 2018 – 31 March 2019
MAG Palazzo Bufalini Piazza Duomo Spoleto

On the occasion of the forty-fifth anniversary of his death, and in conjunction with numerous exhibitions around the world dedicated to him, Spoleto celebrates the genius of the Spanish artist with the exhibition PICASSO. INTIMATE PORTRAIT Photos by Edward Quinn, presenting a large series of shots, some of them unpublished, taken by Edward Quinn (Dublin 1920-Switzerland 1997), the photojournalist who followed Picasso (1881-1973) to the Côte d’Azur and portrayed him, with his permission, for about twenty years.

From December 15, 2018 to March 31, 2019, MAG MetaMorfosi Art Gallery in Palazzo Bufalini in Piazza Duomo will feature about eighty photos (two sizes on display 40×50 and 30×40 cm) that tell the story of an absolutely private Picasso: among his women, lovers and friends, among his children, the result of many passions over the years, among the many friends and acquaintances who populated his canvases as well as the laid tables and the beaches by the sea. As many as 26 of these photos are unpublished and never printed before. The photos come from the Quinn Archive, Zurich, and were selected by the exhibition’s curator, Wolfgang Frei, the photographer’s nephew.

The exhibition, produced and organized by MetaMorfosi under the patronage of the City of Spoleto, is the result of the special friendship that linked Picasso to Edward Quinn, as his nephew explains by reconstructing their first meeting on the Côte d’Azur: “”Lui, il ne me dérange pas”, (“He does not bother me”) says Picasso after having been photographed for the first time during his work on March 23, 1953. So Quinn became one of the few photographers who was allowed to photograph him at work and who was accepted in his private life.

Born in 1920, Quinn moved to Munich in the late 1940s. Probably there has never been a place like the Côte d’Azur of the 1950s and 1960s where so many stars, politicians and artists have lived or spent their holidays. One of the personalities who settled on the Côte d’Azur was Picasso: he already was a star. Quinn managed to take his first photos of Picasso with his two children in 1951. The artist liked the photos and agreed to the request for further shots. Two years later, the first photo shoot took place with Picasso working with ceramics. Quinn did not belong to the breed of the insistent paparazzi, like tabloid photographers. In this he was too much of an Irish gentleman. He soon became a friend of Picasso, as shown by the 1954 dedication to the linocut “Toros en Vallauris”: “Para el amigo Quinn – el buen fotógrafo”.

“Even if Quinn – Frei tells us – was a dear friend, it was almost never possible to make an appointment with Picasso in advance. Often Picasso gave the order not to be disturbed. Almost all visits were unexpected and improvised. However, this was in line with Quinn’s way of working: his shots did not need long technical preparations. He didn’t use the tripod and refused to artificially light the rooms and have Picasso pose for a photo. The aim was to show under what conditions the artist created his works”.

The objective was unconventional, credible, authentic, documentary photography. The photographs on display, many of which have never been published, reveal how the artist was inspired by everyday things and people, but also by the extraordinary things that surrounded him. In this vision of his personality, of the people behind the images, also clichés about reality and opposites become visible: free time alongside work, everyday life in relation to art, Casanova and the family man, the clown and the extrovert joker, but also the very attentive master.

A fascinating intimate portrait of the artist that covers a period of over 20 years and tells an unusual Picasso, authentic and rich in humanity.

The Fun before the theater – Theatrical mediation for children @ Biblioteca Comunale "G. Carducci" - Palazzo Mauri - Sezione ragazzi
Dec 15 @ 11:00

As in past years, Spoleto’s Department of Culture organizes The fun before the theatre – as the children called it last year – the project of theatrical mediation held by the Cultural Association Il Teodelapio in the person of Lorella Natalizi, teacher of theatre for children.

The meetings are linked to La Domenica dei Sogni family theatre festival and will be held on the Saturdays preceding the Sunday shows, at 11 a.m. at the Municipal Library.

Through an image, a piece of text or a theatre play, the main theme of each show will be explored: friendship, relationship, diversity, insecurities, the desire for poetry.

THE TOY SHOP
CREST – Coop. teatrale

with Delia De Marco, Valentina Elia, Giuseppe Marzio
text and direction Sandra Novellino and Delia De Marco

The story happens in a toy shop that, as in children’s imagination, come alive and come to life. And, just like it happens in real life, there is a more beautiful doll, an envious one, a teddy bear who falls in love, a jealous soldier, and carousels and little cars that always turn around! A parallel world that helps children experience emotions, switching from joy to disappointment, from melancholy to happiness, from love to resentment. The show is aimed at younger children; it is the result of many years of experience in kindergartens, looking for the most effective theatrical language to address to such a particular and demanding audience.

Tickets and subscriptions
children and young people up to 18 years free of charge
single entrance € 6,00 (adults only)

Duration of shows: about 60 minutes

Ticket purchase: the day of the show 15.45-16.30

From 18 December 2018 to 6 October 2019
National Museum of the Duchy (Spoleto) and Temple of Clitunno (Campello sul Clitunno)
The intentional reuse of Roman worked stone in the Lombard Period

Organized by Associazione Italia Langobardorum and Polo Museale dell’Umbria

Opening: Tuesday, December 18 at 12:00 at the Temple of Clitunno and at 15:00 at the National Museum of the Duchy of Spoleto.

The respect and emulation of the ancient, very widespread in the Lombard period, is one of the most obvious phenomena of that process of acculturation and integration of Lombards, very important for their affirmation. It is along the Flaminia Nova, in the stretch between Spoleto and Campello, that one can find numerous monuments that testify to the reuse of ancient materials in buildings of the early Middle Ages and Romanesque age, many of which arose near cemetery areas outside the city.

The exhibition is part of the cycle of events entitled Longobardi in vetrina (Lombards in the limelight), a project within a series of activities promoted by the Associazione Italia Langobardorum – management structure of the UNESCO site Longobards in Italy. The places of power (568-774 A.D.) of which the municipalities of Spoleto and Campello are founding members – for the dissemination of knowledge of Lombard culture.

The exhibitions will be accompanied by educational and training activities and conferences that makes this project the first nationwide exhibition dedicated to the Lombard people, the largest in terms of extension and involvement of institutions and archaeological heritage. The 15 exhibitions will all be inaugurated by the end of January 2018 and will be collected in a single printed catalogue and in a single virtual exhibition created with MOVIO, the multifunctional open source platform promoted by MiBAC, used to create and publish exhibition guides, digital extensions of real and virtual exhibitions.
www.longobardinvetrina.it

Longobardi in vetrina is part of the project Exchange and sharing between museums to enhance the Lombard heritage for which the Association has obtained from MiBACT the admission to funding under Law 77/2006 ‘Measures for the protection and use of UNESCO sites’.

<!--:it-->IL PRESEPE DI GHIACCIO PIÙ GRANDE D’ITALIA<!--:--><!--:en-->Spoleto hosts the largest Ice Crib in Italy<!--:--> @ Piazza Pianciani

From 23 December to 6 January Spoleto will host an Ice Crib of 35 square meters, the largest in Italy, made by the Italian Association of Ice Sculptors.
The Christmas crib will be located in Piazza Pianciani.

The work was created by the Italian Association of Ice Sculptors, celebrating a centuries-old art born in the early twentieth century.

The Nativity, which will pay homage to the figure of St. Francis, will be placed inside a refrigerated truck and kept at a constant temperature of -2 °, a space where the public can admire over 18 tons of pure crystalline ice transformed into statues of real size.

The Nativity scene can be visited from 23 December to 6 January, from 10.00 a.m. to 1.00 p.m. and from 3.00 p.m. to 10.00 p.m., while on Sundays from 10.00 a.m. to 10.00 p.m. The 25th of December and the 1st of January it will be open only in the afternoon. The cost of the ticket is € 2.00 for adults and 1 euro for children.

During the Christmas period, on Thursday 27 and Friday 28 December, some sculptors of the Association will perform in the historic center of Spoleto to demonstrate how a work of ice is born.

The event is organized by the Italian Association of Ice Sculptors in collaboration with the City of Spoleto – Department of Culture and Development.

The Italian Association of Ice Sculptors, chaired by Amelio Mazzella, boasts numerous and prestigious participations and organizations of World competitions. The sculptors of the Association competed in ice sculpture competitions, which are part of the cultural program of the Winter Olympics, in 2002 in Salt Lake City (USA), in 2010 in Vancouver (Canada). On the occasion of the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, they also organized an important event in Pragelato, involving 40 artists from 24 countries.

Broadcast live every year since its first performance in 1951, Amahl was the first work commissioned for television and the first one to exploit the full potential of the new medium. With a libretto (in English) of remarkable lyrical beauty, written by the composer himself, and a cast of magnificent actors and singers, Amahl perfectly achieved the goal of the founders of the NBC Opera Theatre, which was to ‘bring authenticity and realism to opera’. Tailor-made by Menotti for an audience of children, this work has been for many an enlightening introduction to the world of opera as a musical theatre. It remains over time an enchanting experience, very evocative, and finally, deeply moving”.

A post-film debate with mayor Umberto De Augustinis and the Festival artistic director Giorgio Ferrara is foreseen.
