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)
€ 3,00 (Spoleto Card holders, Over65, Under25 and groups of at least 15 people)
Free for residents of Spoleto and Under14.

Exhibition | LATE GOTHIC ENCHANTMENT. The recomposed triptych of the Master of the Straus Madonna @ Museo Diocesano
Sep 11 all-day

From June 15 to November 7, thanks to the precious collaboration of the Vatican Museums, the triptych composed of the Madonna Enthroned with Child and Angels, currently housed in the Diocesan Museum of Spoleto, and the side compartments with the depictions of Saint Paula of Rome and Saint Eustochio, which escaped the fury of the 1703 earthquake, will be reunited and will be visible for the first time.

The exhibition, entitled Late gothic enchantment. The recomposed triptych of the Master of the Straus Madonna, is curated by Adele Breda, referent of the Department for Byzantine-Medieval Art of the Vatican Museums, by Stefania Nardicchi, Curator of the Diocesan Museum of Spoleto, and by Anna Pizzamano, PhD student in “History and Cultural Heritage of the Church” at the Pontifical Gregorian University.

On the occasion of the recent restoration of the two side compartments preserved in the Vatican Collection, bearing the images of two little-known saints, Paola of Rome and Eustochio, mother and daughter who lived at the time of St. Jerome (late fourth century), their study was deepened and an attempt was made to find the lost central compartment. The searches led to the Diocesan Museum, where a fragmented table representing a Madonna in throne with the Child between two angels has been identified. The painting, even if missing the lower part, has been recognized as the central part of the triptych. The work adorned in origin the altar of the church of Saint Maria near the castle of Abeto di Preci, from which the name of Maria Santissima di Piè di Castello.

The Madonna di Spoleto was transferred to the Vatican Museums’ Office of Scientific Researches applied to Cultural Heritage, where the various components were thoroughly examined: the wooden essence, the pigments, the engravings and the punches confirmed its full compatibility. With the intention of deepening the study of a painter of very high quality who is not sufficiently known, a later work by the same master was also selected for comparison, the Madonna Enthroned with Child between Two Angels, today kept in the Museum of Sacred Art and Popular Religiousness “Beato Angelico” in Vicchio del Mugello.

There are several reasons that led to this choice. These polyptychs are in fact made by one of the most refined and sought-after Florentine workshops of the time, and used for the liturgical decoration of chapels and parishes in the rural areas of Umbria and Tuscany. The survival of the only table with the Madonna, both in the case of Abeto di Preci and in that of Vicchio, attests, moreover, a devotion never interrupted and an affective and plurisecular bond with the territory, that has resisted also to the dispersion of the side compartments. Thanks to this juxtaposition it is also possible to guess the original dimensions of the Madonna in Spoleto, seriously damaged in the earthquake of 1703.

These works represent two different moments of the stylistic path of the Master of the Straus Madonna, active in Florence between 1385 and 1415, a painter who, from an initial neo-Giottism, slowly opened to the new international style, welcoming in part the style of Lorenzo Monaco and Gherardo Starnina, but always maintaining his original archaic style.

EXHIBITIONS AT PALAZZO COLLICOLA @ Palazzo Collicola
Sep 11 all-day

Artistic director Marco Tonelli proposes a journey through experimentation, writing, drawing and painting

Opening to the public on 26 June. Exhibitions will be open until 26 September

There will be four exhibitions organised by the City of Spoleto at Palazzo Collicola on the occasion of the 64th Festival Of 2 Worlds. Under the direction of Marco Tonelli, the artistic proposals of this summer 2021 (the opening is scheduled for 26 June and will be open until 26 September) will be a journey between experimentation, writing, drawings and painting, within different conceptual paths developed, in some cases, in periods apparently distant and ideally distant.   Giuseppe Penone: Disegni Curated by Marco Tonelli, the exhibition, conceived together with the artist, will be set up in the inner rooms of the Modern Art Gallery. Promoted by the Festival Of Two Worlds, it is ideally inserted in the tradition of exhibitions of drawings by great modern and contemporary artists, such as MoMA’s American Drawings (1961), Modern Italian Drawings (1962), Willem de Kooning: drawings (1969), James Ensor. Drawings and etchings (1981), Balthus: drawings and watercolours (1982), which were held in Spoleto as part of the Festival. An exhibition of this kind, devoted exclusively to drawings, is the first to be held by Penone in Italy, following the one held at the Drawing Center in New York in 2007.
    Work in Progress. Works from the Modern Art Gallery of Palazzo Collicola and the Marignoli Foundation of Montecorona. Curated by Michele Drascek, Duccio K. Marignoli, Marco Tonelli, two art collections in Spoleto, that of the Modern Art Gallery of Palazzo Collicola and that of the Marignoli Foundation of Montecorona, have sought to compare, creating a seamless historical line, from the 16th century to contemporary times, a particular series of works: sketches, models, preparatory sketches, studies. A total of 70 works will be exhibited, including drawings, paintings, sculptures, wooden maquettes and small models, some of which have been exceptionally recovered from the deposits of Palazzo Collicola or are being shown to the public for the first time from the collection preserved at Palazzo Marignoli.
    Stefano Di Stasio: Astanze Curated by Fabio Sargentini and Marco Tonelli, nine large paintings will be presented in as many rooms on the museum’s exhibition floor, creating a series of rooms, or stations, immersed in darkness and cut out of the dark by a single point of light, which reveals monumental figures of mysterious solitary men charged with symbolic connotations, painted between 1994 and 2011 and coming from a single thematic nucleus: that of the Galleria dell’Attico in Rome, where the artist has held solo and group exhibitions since 1994.
    Josè Angelino: Resistenze Curated by Davide Silvioli, this is a site-specific project by Josè Angelino in collaboration with the Fondazione Carla Fendi and Mahler & LeWitt Studios. All the works on show, which will be located in different areas of Palazzo Collicola, are courtesy of Galleria Alessandra Bonomo. The event is the first appointment of a cycle of exhibitions entitled Collicola Project Room(s), curated by Davide Silvioli and dedicated to emerging artists.

Exhibition | LATE GOTHIC ENCHANTMENT. The recomposed triptych of the Master of the Straus Madonna @ Museo Diocesano
Sep 13 all-day

From June 15 to November 7, thanks to the precious collaboration of the Vatican Museums, the triptych composed of the Madonna Enthroned with Child and Angels, currently housed in the Diocesan Museum of Spoleto, and the side compartments with the depictions of Saint Paula of Rome and Saint Eustochio, which escaped the fury of the 1703 earthquake, will be reunited and will be visible for the first time.

The exhibition, entitled Late gothic enchantment. The recomposed triptych of the Master of the Straus Madonna, is curated by Adele Breda, referent of the Department for Byzantine-Medieval Art of the Vatican Museums, by Stefania Nardicchi, Curator of the Diocesan Museum of Spoleto, and by Anna Pizzamano, PhD student in “History and Cultural Heritage of the Church” at the Pontifical Gregorian University.

On the occasion of the recent restoration of the two side compartments preserved in the Vatican Collection, bearing the images of two little-known saints, Paola of Rome and Eustochio, mother and daughter who lived at the time of St. Jerome (late fourth century), their study was deepened and an attempt was made to find the lost central compartment. The searches led to the Diocesan Museum, where a fragmented table representing a Madonna in throne with the Child between two angels has been identified. The painting, even if missing the lower part, has been recognized as the central part of the triptych. The work adorned in origin the altar of the church of Saint Maria near the castle of Abeto di Preci, from which the name of Maria Santissima di Piè di Castello.

The Madonna di Spoleto was transferred to the Vatican Museums’ Office of Scientific Researches applied to Cultural Heritage, where the various components were thoroughly examined: the wooden essence, the pigments, the engravings and the punches confirmed its full compatibility. With the intention of deepening the study of a painter of very high quality who is not sufficiently known, a later work by the same master was also selected for comparison, the Madonna Enthroned with Child between Two Angels, today kept in the Museum of Sacred Art and Popular Religiousness “Beato Angelico” in Vicchio del Mugello.

There are several reasons that led to this choice. These polyptychs are in fact made by one of the most refined and sought-after Florentine workshops of the time, and used for the liturgical decoration of chapels and parishes in the rural areas of Umbria and Tuscany. The survival of the only table with the Madonna, both in the case of Abeto di Preci and in that of Vicchio, attests, moreover, a devotion never interrupted and an affective and plurisecular bond with the territory, that has resisted also to the dispersion of the side compartments. Thanks to this juxtaposition it is also possible to guess the original dimensions of the Madonna in Spoleto, seriously damaged in the earthquake of 1703.

These works represent two different moments of the stylistic path of the Master of the Straus Madonna, active in Florence between 1385 and 1415, a painter who, from an initial neo-Giottism, slowly opened to the new international style, welcoming in part the style of Lorenzo Monaco and Gherardo Starnina, but always maintaining his original archaic style.

EXHIBITIONS AT PALAZZO COLLICOLA @ Palazzo Collicola
Sep 13 all-day

Artistic director Marco Tonelli proposes a journey through experimentation, writing, drawing and painting

Opening to the public on 26 June. Exhibitions will be open until 26 September

There will be four exhibitions organised by the City of Spoleto at Palazzo Collicola on the occasion of the 64th Festival Of 2 Worlds. Under the direction of Marco Tonelli, the artistic proposals of this summer 2021 (the opening is scheduled for 26 June and will be open until 26 September) will be a journey between experimentation, writing, drawings and painting, within different conceptual paths developed, in some cases, in periods apparently distant and ideally distant.   Giuseppe Penone: Disegni Curated by Marco Tonelli, the exhibition, conceived together with the artist, will be set up in the inner rooms of the Modern Art Gallery. Promoted by the Festival Of Two Worlds, it is ideally inserted in the tradition of exhibitions of drawings by great modern and contemporary artists, such as MoMA’s American Drawings (1961), Modern Italian Drawings (1962), Willem de Kooning: drawings (1969), James Ensor. Drawings and etchings (1981), Balthus: drawings and watercolours (1982), which were held in Spoleto as part of the Festival. An exhibition of this kind, devoted exclusively to drawings, is the first to be held by Penone in Italy, following the one held at the Drawing Center in New York in 2007.
    Work in Progress. Works from the Modern Art Gallery of Palazzo Collicola and the Marignoli Foundation of Montecorona. Curated by Michele Drascek, Duccio K. Marignoli, Marco Tonelli, two art collections in Spoleto, that of the Modern Art Gallery of Palazzo Collicola and that of the Marignoli Foundation of Montecorona, have sought to compare, creating a seamless historical line, from the 16th century to contemporary times, a particular series of works: sketches, models, preparatory sketches, studies. A total of 70 works will be exhibited, including drawings, paintings, sculptures, wooden maquettes and small models, some of which have been exceptionally recovered from the deposits of Palazzo Collicola or are being shown to the public for the first time from the collection preserved at Palazzo Marignoli.
    Stefano Di Stasio: Astanze Curated by Fabio Sargentini and Marco Tonelli, nine large paintings will be presented in as many rooms on the museum’s exhibition floor, creating a series of rooms, or stations, immersed in darkness and cut out of the dark by a single point of light, which reveals monumental figures of mysterious solitary men charged with symbolic connotations, painted between 1994 and 2011 and coming from a single thematic nucleus: that of the Galleria dell’Attico in Rome, where the artist has held solo and group exhibitions since 1994.
    Josè Angelino: Resistenze Curated by Davide Silvioli, this is a site-specific project by Josè Angelino in collaboration with the Fondazione Carla Fendi and Mahler & LeWitt Studios. All the works on show, which will be located in different areas of Palazzo Collicola, are courtesy of Galleria Alessandra Bonomo. The event is the first appointment of a cycle of exhibitions entitled Collicola Project Room(s), curated by Davide Silvioli and dedicated to emerging artists.

Exhibition | LATE GOTHIC ENCHANTMENT. The recomposed triptych of the Master of the Straus Madonna @ Museo Diocesano
Sep 16 all-day

From June 15 to November 7, thanks to the precious collaboration of the Vatican Museums, the triptych composed of the Madonna Enthroned with Child and Angels, currently housed in the Diocesan Museum of Spoleto, and the side compartments with the depictions of Saint Paula of Rome and Saint Eustochio, which escaped the fury of the 1703 earthquake, will be reunited and will be visible for the first time.

The exhibition, entitled Late gothic enchantment. The recomposed triptych of the Master of the Straus Madonna, is curated by Adele Breda, referent of the Department for Byzantine-Medieval Art of the Vatican Museums, by Stefania Nardicchi, Curator of the Diocesan Museum of Spoleto, and by Anna Pizzamano, PhD student in “History and Cultural Heritage of the Church” at the Pontifical Gregorian University.

On the occasion of the recent restoration of the two side compartments preserved in the Vatican Collection, bearing the images of two little-known saints, Paola of Rome and Eustochio, mother and daughter who lived at the time of St. Jerome (late fourth century), their study was deepened and an attempt was made to find the lost central compartment. The searches led to the Diocesan Museum, where a fragmented table representing a Madonna in throne with the Child between two angels has been identified. The painting, even if missing the lower part, has been recognized as the central part of the triptych. The work adorned in origin the altar of the church of Saint Maria near the castle of Abeto di Preci, from which the name of Maria Santissima di Piè di Castello.

The Madonna di Spoleto was transferred to the Vatican Museums’ Office of Scientific Researches applied to Cultural Heritage, where the various components were thoroughly examined: the wooden essence, the pigments, the engravings and the punches confirmed its full compatibility. With the intention of deepening the study of a painter of very high quality who is not sufficiently known, a later work by the same master was also selected for comparison, the Madonna Enthroned with Child between Two Angels, today kept in the Museum of Sacred Art and Popular Religiousness “Beato Angelico” in Vicchio del Mugello.

There are several reasons that led to this choice. These polyptychs are in fact made by one of the most refined and sought-after Florentine workshops of the time, and used for the liturgical decoration of chapels and parishes in the rural areas of Umbria and Tuscany. The survival of the only table with the Madonna, both in the case of Abeto di Preci and in that of Vicchio, attests, moreover, a devotion never interrupted and an affective and plurisecular bond with the territory, that has resisted also to the dispersion of the side compartments. Thanks to this juxtaposition it is also possible to guess the original dimensions of the Madonna in Spoleto, seriously damaged in the earthquake of 1703.

These works represent two different moments of the stylistic path of the Master of the Straus Madonna, active in Florence between 1385 and 1415, a painter who, from an initial neo-Giottism, slowly opened to the new international style, welcoming in part the style of Lorenzo Monaco and Gherardo Starnina, but always maintaining his original archaic style.

EXHIBITIONS AT PALAZZO COLLICOLA @ Palazzo Collicola
Sep 16 all-day

Artistic director Marco Tonelli proposes a journey through experimentation, writing, drawing and painting

Opening to the public on 26 June. Exhibitions will be open until 26 September

There will be four exhibitions organised by the City of Spoleto at Palazzo Collicola on the occasion of the 64th Festival Of 2 Worlds. Under the direction of Marco Tonelli, the artistic proposals of this summer 2021 (the opening is scheduled for 26 June and will be open until 26 September) will be a journey between experimentation, writing, drawings and painting, within different conceptual paths developed, in some cases, in periods apparently distant and ideally distant.   Giuseppe Penone: Disegni Curated by Marco Tonelli, the exhibition, conceived together with the artist, will be set up in the inner rooms of the Modern Art Gallery. Promoted by the Festival Of Two Worlds, it is ideally inserted in the tradition of exhibitions of drawings by great modern and contemporary artists, such as MoMA’s American Drawings (1961), Modern Italian Drawings (1962), Willem de Kooning: drawings (1969), James Ensor. Drawings and etchings (1981), Balthus: drawings and watercolours (1982), which were held in Spoleto as part of the Festival. An exhibition of this kind, devoted exclusively to drawings, is the first to be held by Penone in Italy, following the one held at the Drawing Center in New York in 2007.
    Work in Progress. Works from the Modern Art Gallery of Palazzo Collicola and the Marignoli Foundation of Montecorona. Curated by Michele Drascek, Duccio K. Marignoli, Marco Tonelli, two art collections in Spoleto, that of the Modern Art Gallery of Palazzo Collicola and that of the Marignoli Foundation of Montecorona, have sought to compare, creating a seamless historical line, from the 16th century to contemporary times, a particular series of works: sketches, models, preparatory sketches, studies. A total of 70 works will be exhibited, including drawings, paintings, sculptures, wooden maquettes and small models, some of which have been exceptionally recovered from the deposits of Palazzo Collicola or are being shown to the public for the first time from the collection preserved at Palazzo Marignoli.
    Stefano Di Stasio: Astanze Curated by Fabio Sargentini and Marco Tonelli, nine large paintings will be presented in as many rooms on the museum’s exhibition floor, creating a series of rooms, or stations, immersed in darkness and cut out of the dark by a single point of light, which reveals monumental figures of mysterious solitary men charged with symbolic connotations, painted between 1994 and 2011 and coming from a single thematic nucleus: that of the Galleria dell’Attico in Rome, where the artist has held solo and group exhibitions since 1994.
    Josè Angelino: Resistenze Curated by Davide Silvioli, this is a site-specific project by Josè Angelino in collaboration with the Fondazione Carla Fendi and Mahler & LeWitt Studios. All the works on show, which will be located in different areas of Palazzo Collicola, are courtesy of Galleria Alessandra Bonomo. The event is the first appointment of a cycle of exhibitions entitled Collicola Project Room(s), curated by Davide Silvioli and dedicated to emerging artists.
