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 A story in images is a collection of unpublished photographs dating back to the years of the discovery of the Roman Theatre of Spoleto and its unearthing, from 1938 to 1960.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 The exhibition reveals unpublished aspects of the discovery of the Roman theatre and the transformation of the complex of S.Agata from a judicial prison (1867-1957) to a museum.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.

EXHIBITION | The intentional reuse of Roman worked stone in the Lombard Period @ Tempietto del Clitunno e Museo Nazionale del Ducato di Spoleto
Dec 18 2018 – Oct 6 2019 all-day
<!--:it-->MOSTRA | Il riuso consapevole dell’antico in area spoletina in età longobarda <!--:--><!--:en-->EXHIBITION | The intentional reuse of Roman worked stone in the Lombard Period<!--:--> @ Tempietto del Clitunno e Museo Nazionale del Ducato di Spoleto

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.

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’.

THE ISLAND OF NEVERLAND… IS NOW A FOREVERLAND
Ass. Culturale Tieffeu

by and with Francesca Prete and Riccardo Toccacielo
direction, sets and puppets by Mario Mirabassi

This is a true, or almost true, story that could take place anywhere, in any city of the world. It is the story of a group of young people and of an abandoned and uncultivated green space, the only one left among buildings and concrete, the last meeting point of the children of the district. But one day that space is taken away from them to build a large gambling center owned by the local boss who dominates the entire city. From here, the story develops with their parents and LIBERA association coming to support the children’s action.

First Study Day on the Italian Wildlife at Spoleto as part of the project The Ragni Collection as a tool for scientific research and historical memory of the Spoleto and Umbrian natural heritage

Organized by Comune di Spoleto, University of Perugia, Ragni family, Hyla Naturalistic Studio, WildUmbria Association and co-funded by the Cassa di Risparmio Spoleto Foundation.
The event is organized by the City of Spoleto in collaboration with the Ragni Family, the Consorzio Bonifica Umbra, the Academy of the Ottusi and will be attended by scholars, researchers and representatives of public, regional and national scientific institutions.

A year after his death, even in this way we want to pay tribute to Bernardino Ragni (Spoleto 1946-2018) who spent his life studying and learning about wildlife. A passion born as a boy that was then transferred to his work as a professor at the University of Perugia in order to protect and maintain the animal species and the environment in which they live.

Bernardino Ragni, former researcher of animal biology and professor of environmental zoology and fauna management at the University of Perugia, was an expert in biology and conservation of tetrapods, sustainable use and conservation of living natural resources, landscape and territory. Author and co-author of over 160 scientific and specialist publications, he was a member of the Species Survival Commission and of the IUCN’s Cat Specialist Group, The World Conservation Union, and founder of the Society of Environmental Biology.

Manual Intelligence: Craft Production and Techniques in the Lombard Period

24 January – 21 July 2019
Museum of the Duchy of Spoleto | MuCiv – MAME of Rome

Openings
Thursday 24 January at 16 – Spoleto
Tuesday 29 January at 11.30 a.m. – Rome

15 exhibitions are held at the same time and 7 themes are treated within the project Longobards in the limelight. Exchanges and sharing between museums to enhance the Longobard heritage, conceived and coordinated by Italia Langobardorum Association, management structure of the UNESCO site “Longobards in Italy. The places of power (568-774 A.D.).

An ambitious project that enjoys the patronage of the Ministry of Heritage and Culture and obtained the contribution of MIBAC Law 77/2006, dedicated to Italian UNESCO sites.

The project aims at raising knowledge about Longobard culture through the enhancement of the museums located in the seven monumental complexes that are part of the UNESCO site, but also of those sites that were involved by the passage of the Longobards. Collaboration and synergy between museums are encouraged by temporary exchanges of artworks, divided into thematic exhibitions, hosted in the 6 museums of the UNESCO site network (National Archaeological Museum of Cividale del Friuli, antiquarium of Castelseprio, Museum of Santa Giulia in Brescia, National Museum of the Duchy of Spoleto, Diocesan Museum of Benevento, TECUM Museums of Monte Sant’Angelo) the Temple of Campello sul Clitunno, and eight other museums throughout Italy.

Exchanges between museums, temporary exhibitions and cultural support activities are also enhanced by an online virtual exhibition created with MOVIO (www.longobardinvetrina.it) and by a single catalogue, characterising this project as the first exhibition to be held nationwide, conceived as a set of exhibitions on Longobard culture; the largest exhibition in terms of territorial extension and involvement of institutions and historical-archaeological heritage.

Spoleto has focused on the theme of Manual Intelligence: Craft Production and Techniques in the Lombard Period.

Two exhibitions, promoted by the City of Spoleto, will be held at the Museum of the Duchy of Spoleto and at the MuCiv – MAME of Rome.

These exhibitions illustrate the technical-productive knowledge of the Lombards in Italy and identify the processes that led this people to integrate their technical heritage, typical of the Germanic population, with the Roman-Byzantine Mediterranean matrix, in a period of transition between the late ancient period and the early Middle Ages.

The Lombards had a particular “vocation for iron, steel and metallurgy” in line with the high technological level of production processes in the rest of the Germanic world, distinguishing themselves in the production of jewellery, weapons and tools.

To illustrate their craft skills, metal objects found in the necropolises of Nocera Umbra (PG) and Castel Trosino (AP) were selected. These objects were created with different techniques: mould casting, cloisonné, punching, filigree, damascening and niello.

Finally, there is also a brief reference to ceramic production, which shows its own clearly identifiable characteristics.

Opening ceremonies will be held on Thursday, January 24 at 16 in Spoleto and on January 29 at 11:30 in Rome.

I Won’t Quit – Giorgia Benusiglio discusses her experience with drugs @ Biblioteca Comunale "G. Carducci"
Jan 25 @ 17:30
<!--:it-->Io non smetto. Giorgia Benusiglio racconta la sua esperienza con la droga<!--:--><!--:en-->I Won't Quit - Giorgia Benusiglio discusses her experience with drugs<!--:--> @ Biblioteca Comunale "G. Carducci"

In 1999 a seventeen-year-old girl was miraculously saved, thanks to a liver transplant, after taking half a tablet of ecstasy. This small amount of drugs, taken that one single time, was enough to provoke an almost life-threatening, toxic fulminant hepatitis in the young girl. Giorgia Benusiglio has since decided to turn that dramatic experience into a life lesson, engaging in a long activity of prevention and awareness against drugs, speaking – in books, publications and in many participations in famous TV and radio programs – of her fortunes and the risks related to the use of narcotics. Giorgia Benusiglio graduated in Primary Education Sciences at the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart, embarking on an educational and specialist path that made her an expert on these issues, writing books, taking care of projects, acting as testimonial for important organizations and leading more than 2000 meetings with hundreds of thousands of kids all over Italy.

Giorgia Benusiglio will be in Spoleto on Friday 25th and Saturday 26th January to meet kids and parents. The event, which falls within the framework of initiatives in favour of city schools on the theme of health education and addiction prevention, is entitled I Won’t Quit and is organized, in collaboration with the Spoleto Social Sport association and the R. Lanari Police School, in a cycle of three meetings at the presence of Giorgia Benusiglio and the Captain of the Guardia di Finanza Luigi D’Onofri. Two meetings, Friday 25 and Saturday 26 January, at the Auditorium of the Police School, will be reserved for students of the III classes of secondary schools of the first degree and classes I, II, III, IV and V of secondary schools of the second degree. Open to the public, and especially addressed to parents, is the third meeting, scheduled for Friday, January 25 at 17.30 at the City Library “Giosuè Carducci” at Palazzo Mauri.

THE MAGNIFICENT IMPOSTOR
Teatro Laboratorio Brescia

by and with Alessandra Domeneghini
directed by Sergio Mascherpa

“What would you have done in my place?” This is the question that Giorgio Perlasca addresses to his interlocutor, to raise many other questions… Would I be able to oppose the horrible facts I am witnessing? Would I risk my life to save unknown people? Would I be able to draw on that part of myself that tries to fight injustice? It is precisely because of the many reflections that his story manages to generate that we want to talk about him again, about the “magnificent impostor”: and we would like to do so because the times we are living in are difficult times, and they often require us to appeal to the moral strength that we carry inside ourselves.

The Teodelapio Association, now in its 17th year, has dedicated its activities mainly to theatre teaching, through workshops held by its operators in schools in Spoleto – from primary school to high school – and through the establishment of a theatre school for young people and adults, promoted by the Municipality and directed by Pietro Biondi and Anna Leonardi. At the same time it has carried out an intense cultural activity in the field of Theatre, Entertainment and Communication through regular meetings with scholars and protagonists of the Italian scene, cinema and television.

This is the program of the 4th edition of Hot Anthology:

Thursday 7 February 2019
Claudio Trionfi reads Senza Titolo | Volodia

Thursday 28 February 2019
Anna Leonardi reads Tre donne | La Signora N.N. | La corista | Varka

Thursday 21 March 2019
Pietro Biondi reads Il monaco nero

Aperitifs with: Tebro pastry, Fratelli Musco, Urbani Truffles

Organised by the Cultural Association “Teodelapio”.

LA DOMENICA DEI SOGNI – Teatro Famiglia
SUNDAY OF DREAMS – Family Theatre
Conceived by Vincenzo Cerami

Sunday 10 February 2019
Teatro Nuovo Gian Carlo Menotti, 4.30 p.m.

FIABA LUPA
Compagnia Anfiteatro

Sixth appointment with La Domenica dei Sogni: Sunday 10 February at 16.30 at the Teatro Nuovo Gian Carlo Menotti, Fiaba Lupa by Giampiero Pizzol, directed by Piero Lenardon of Compagnia Anfiteatro; the play is suitable for children aged 4 to 10.

The wolf is possibly the most ubiquitous character in traditional fairy tales, always playing the villain, scary yet somehow enthralling. A comic pair of two clowns is featured in Fiaba Lupa, Mr. Circo Lupesco and Miss Musica Fiaba (Bano Ferrari and Naya Dedemailan). They both yearn for achieving their dreams (becoming a tamer and performing a great trumpet solo live) yet none of them leaves room to the other one, and it’s only thanks to the help of Mr. Bella Idea that they finally settle their disputes and stage a play in which the wolf is the main character.

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

On February 21 at 21.00, the Teatro Nuovo Gian Carlo Menotti will host the Ballet Flamenco Español company from Madrid with the famous Carmen Suite ballet, as part of its Tourné season (sponsored by AUCMA and MEA Concerts).

The most evocative work of French composer and pianist Georges Bizet will meet popular flamenco music. The sensual and harmonious notes are represented on stage with the elegance of Spanish classical dance and the pure strength of flamenco. The subject of Carmen, taken from a short story by Prosper Mérimée, is interpreted here by mixing different styles of Hispanic dance, exalting an ancient Spain of bullfighters and passionate gypsies. The powerful colour, the result of continuous stylistic research, reigns everywhere on the scene, boldly interpreting the majesty of Bizet’s work.
