Gianni Asdrubali: Surfing with the Alien
curated by Marco Tonelli and Bruno Corà
Palazzo Collicola
Inauguration: Saturday 27 June 2020 – h 11.00

Almost twenty-five years later, Gianni Asdrubali (Tuscania, 1955) is again a protagonist in Spoleto, with a solo exhibition that takes stock of the work of one of the most interesting contemporary Italian painters, who established himself on the national and international scene as an innovator of abstract, aniconic and gestural research since the 1980s.

The exhibition, curated by Marco Tonelli (Director of Palazzo Collicola) and Bruno Corà (President of the Foundation Palazzo Albizzini Collezione Burri and member of Palazzo Collicola’s Scientific Committee), is a retrospective of his work through the most representative and enigmatic as well as evocative cycles of paintings such as Aggroblanda, Trigombo, Malumazac, Zeimekke, Azota, Stoide, Azotrumbo, Tromboloide.

Scheduled for 21 March, suspended due to the Covid-19 lockdown, the exhibition vibrantly announces the reopening of Palazzo Collicola and its activities, albeit with many changes in programming due to the pandemic.

The exhibition’s title Surfing with the Alien (one of the most famous tracks by American virtuoso and brilliant guitarist Joe Satriani), means to communicate the unstable balance, dizzy leaps and acrobatics in the void of a dynamic painting that looks like fluctuating in the dimensions of space, each time generating new plots and surprising trajectories.

As Asdrubali himself once wrote: “Surfing is an action generated by absence. But this surfing is not smooth, it is contrastingly bumping, it is running away, going away, to then return and bang into its own beginning, but every time it returns and bumps into itself it deforms and opens the structure, transforming the ‘figure’ of the image, which is never the same. The interaction is the figure of this struggle, of this contrast between surfing and the alien”.

Asdrubali’s figure is an extreme one, an artist whom critic Filiberto Menna listed in the Astrazione povera group, Flavio Caroli in that of Magico primario, and that Giovanni Carandente invited at the Venice Biennale in 1988.

At Palazzo Collicola, the exhibition unfolds through the rooms at the ground floor, which once housed the permanent collection of the Modern Art Gallery (since 2019 rearranged at the museum’s second floor), where two other works by Asdrubali are kept, including a spectacular Tromboloide from 1992. An interactive project, ZUMBER, by the ORAMIDE research group, has been realized on this work and will soon be available on the museum’s website  http://www.palazzocollicola.it

The exhibition will be open to the public from 27 June to 13 September 2020, it has been realized with the collaboration of Galleria Giraldi, Galleria A Arte Invernizzi, Galleria Matteo Lampertico, Galleria Consorti. During the exhibition, a catalogue with texts by Marco Tonelli, Bruno Corà and an interview with the artist Davide Silvioli will be published.

VISIONI D’AUTORE | Gianluca De Serio presents his movie “Spaccapietre” @ Cinéma Sala Pegasus
Oct 1 @ 21:00
<!--:it-->VISIONI D'AUTORE | Gianluca De Serio presenta il film “Spaccapietre”<!--:--><!--:en-->VISIONI D'AUTORE | Gianluca De Serio presents his movie “Spaccapietre”<!--:--> @ Cinéma Sala Pegasus

After lockdown break, ‘Visioni d’Autore’ returns on Thursday, October 1 at 21.00 at Cinéma Sala Pegasus, with the sixth meeting of the year and first of the new film season 2020/21.

Director Gianluca De Serio will meet Spoleto audience and present “Spaccapietre”, a movie shot together with his twin brother Massimiliano and presented in competition at Venice Days as part of the 77th Venice Film Festival.

The film features actor Salvatore Esposito (“Gomorra”) and the soundtrack signed by the Gatto Ciliegia contro il Grande Freddo, who also were at the Lido with “Miss Marx” by Susanna Nicchiarelli.

On the occasion of their participation in the Venice Film Festival, the two directors presented their movie as follows:

“In Spaccapietre art and personal biography are inseparably intertwined. The story at the center of the film takes its cue from a news story of a few summers ago, the death at work of the Apulian laborer Paola Clemente, and the absurd coincidence with the death of our paternal grandmother, who died working in the same fields in 1958. And, like Giuseppe’s father in the film, our paternal grandfather, before leaving for Turin in the ’60s, was also a stone-breaker. The film is first and foremost an attempt to regain possession of a soul, that of our grandmother we never knew, through the story and body of another woman. But it is also a film of paternal love in which the themes of death, violence, fear, love and revenge emerge pure”.

The screening will be followed by Q&A led by Roberto Lazzerini, an expert film trainer.
Tickets are available in advance during the opening hours of the cinema and online on www.cinemasalapegasus.it

On September 4 and October 2, the festival La Voce della Terra will stage an event in Spoleto.

Friday 4 September in downtown Spoleto (times TBD), The Fantomatik Orchestra will perform; this ensemble from Tuscany is composed of 14 musicians and started as a funky, soul and rhythm’n’blues group, influenced by ethnic, pop and dance music. The Fantomatik Orchestra has been performing on the streets and stages of many cities in Italy and abroad; has opened for great artists and was featured in TV broadcasts, theatre and cinema events, developing an original identity that makes it unique and unlike any traditional, street or marching band. Great arrangements and the funk, rock, ethnic, prog, jazz and pop repertoire, express all the energy and vitality of the musicians, involving entertainers like few others.

Friday 2 October at the Teatro Nuovo “Gian Carlo Menotti” (at 21.00), grand finale with the Neri per Caso. After debuting in 1994 at the Sanremo Giovani with their Donne di Zucchero, the following year they triumph with Le ragazze. Their first album was awarded 6 platinum records. With Mai più sola the group repeats the festival experience and classifies 5th. In 1997 they issue their fourth, eponymous album. In 2000 Angelo blu is issued, featuring the single Sarà. In 2008 it’s the time of Angoli diversi featuring Mango, Lucio Dalla, Luca Carboni, Samuele Bersani, i Pooh, Claudio Baglioni, Gino Paoli and Mario Biondi. In 2008 are again at the Festival di Sanremo in the evening dedicated to the duets, and sing Baciami adesso along with Mietta. In 2009 Angoli diversi is awarded the prize of “best European acapella record”. In the same year they work with Claudio Baglioni on Se guardi su. Donne, an album featuring duets with great female singers is issued in 2010, features Loredana Bertè, Ornella Vanoni, Mietta, Mia Martini, Dolcenera, Giusy Ferreri, Noemi, Alessandra Amoroso and Karima. Alicia Keys, Dionne Warwick, Randy Crawford, Chaka Khan and Bobby McFerrin are other artists who collaborated with them, enhancing their funky, jazz and R&B side. Between 2016 and 2017 they participate in Renato Zero’s ALT tour. In 2018 they are again at the Festival di Sanremo along with Elio e le Storie Tese. In April, 2019 they issue We love The Beatles, a tribute to the Liverpool four.

Free Wor(l)d Festival for the Freedom of Speech @ Spoleto
Oct 15 all-day
<!--:it-->Festival Free Wor(l)d per la Libertà di Espressione<!--:--><!--:en-->Free Wor(l)d Festival for the Freedom of Speech<!--:--> @ Spoleto

After the success of the first edition, the Free Wor(l)d Festival for Freedom of Expression – born in Spoleto last year with the idea of putting people back at the centre through culture and information – the second edition is full of content and relationships. Challenging the difficulties brought about by the current Covid-19 health emergency, the Board of Directors, coordinated by Valentina Tatti Tonni, has proposed four days, from 15 to 18 October 2020, for a thematic festival dedicated to Disinformation, to be present in the territory in an itinerant way, with a series of events designed for the community.

The opening will be a long-distance meeting with schools in the morning of 15 October 2020: in collaboration with the Spoleto Anti-Violence Centre, pedagogist Adelaide Coletti and the president of GIULIA Giornaliste Silvia Garambois will conduct a debate with the junior high-school students, on the theme of sexist and discriminatory languages and the Venice Manifesto. In the afternoon, the book La lingua disonesta by Edoardo Lombardi Vallauri, professor of linguistics at the Roma Tre University, will be presented at the Albornoz Hotel; in the evening at the Albornoz Hotel there will be a concert by the well-known and appreciated Trio Francioli, Marino, Scarabottini. The morning with the schools will be repeated on Friday 16 October 2020 with teacher and writer Lorella Zanardo and film director Cesare Cantù, with the aim of providing students of the last three years of high school with useful tools for interpretation and media education. Zanardo’s format – Screens, if you know them, you don’t avoid them – exported all over Italy as a meeting and show will continue in the evening at the Albornoz Hotel, directed to a wider audience interested in the conscious use of media. In the afternoon the exhibition Il pozzo dei desideri (Italian for “Wishing Well”) by acclaimed photographer Emanuela Duranti will be inaugurated in the town hall in via del Mercato.

On the weekend, the theme of Disinformation will be discussed in two conferences, both at the Albornoz Hotel. On Saturday, October 17, 2020, there will be an open debate in the dynamic style of the Ted Talks (everyone answering from their point of view the question What is true and what is really false?) with the Deputy Secretary General of CittadinanzAttiva Anna Lisa Mandorino, the sociolinguist Vera Gheno, the journalist and president of “Cittadini Reattivi” Rosy Battaglia, the journalist collaborating with Il Sole 24Ore on Travel and Tourism Sara Magro, the lawyer expert in international law Laura Guercio and the actor Mirko Frezza. In the afternoon there will be a conference on human rights with the director of Altraeconomia Duccio Facchini, the sociologist Eurispes Marco Omizzolo, the Equo Garantito councillor Fabrizio Cuniberti and the president of Il Ponte Solidale Stefania Guerrucci. Still on the same theme, in the evening at Sala Frau, the film (ticket: 5 euros) directed by Mick Jackson La verità negata will be screened.

Sunday 18 October 2020, last day of the 2020 Free Wor(l)d Festival, in the morning at the Sala Pegasus there will be a tribute to Andrea Camilleri after one year from his passing, participated by director and dramatist Lorenzo Salveti: Andrea Giuliano, Diletta Masetti and Giorgia Fagotto Fiorentini will read selected passages and there will be an intervention by don Luigi Ciotti.

EXHIBITION | Materia Oscura by Paolo Canevari @ Palazzo Collicola
Oct 15 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.

Free Wor(l)d Festival for the Freedom of Speech @ Spoleto
Oct 16 all-day
<!--:it-->Festival Free Wor(l)d per la Libertà di Espressione<!--:--><!--:en-->Free Wor(l)d Festival for the Freedom of Speech<!--:--> @ Spoleto

After the success of the first edition, the Free Wor(l)d Festival for Freedom of Expression – born in Spoleto last year with the idea of putting people back at the centre through culture and information – the second edition is full of content and relationships. Challenging the difficulties brought about by the current Covid-19 health emergency, the Board of Directors, coordinated by Valentina Tatti Tonni, has proposed four days, from 15 to 18 October 2020, for a thematic festival dedicated to Disinformation, to be present in the territory in an itinerant way, with a series of events designed for the community.

The opening will be a long-distance meeting with schools in the morning of 15 October 2020: in collaboration with the Spoleto Anti-Violence Centre, pedagogist Adelaide Coletti and the president of GIULIA Giornaliste Silvia Garambois will conduct a debate with the junior high-school students, on the theme of sexist and discriminatory languages and the Venice Manifesto. In the afternoon, the book La lingua disonesta by Edoardo Lombardi Vallauri, professor of linguistics at the Roma Tre University, will be presented at the Albornoz Hotel; in the evening at the Albornoz Hotel there will be a concert by the well-known and appreciated Trio Francioli, Marino, Scarabottini. The morning with the schools will be repeated on Friday 16 October 2020 with teacher and writer Lorella Zanardo and film director Cesare Cantù, with the aim of providing students of the last three years of high school with useful tools for interpretation and media education. Zanardo’s format – Screens, if you know them, you don’t avoid them – exported all over Italy as a meeting and show will continue in the evening at the Albornoz Hotel, directed to a wider audience interested in the conscious use of media. In the afternoon the exhibition Il pozzo dei desideri (Italian for “Wishing Well”) by acclaimed photographer Emanuela Duranti will be inaugurated in the town hall in via del Mercato.

On the weekend, the theme of Disinformation will be discussed in two conferences, both at the Albornoz Hotel. On Saturday, October 17, 2020, there will be an open debate in the dynamic style of the Ted Talks (everyone answering from their point of view the question What is true and what is really false?) with the Deputy Secretary General of CittadinanzAttiva Anna Lisa Mandorino, the sociolinguist Vera Gheno, the journalist and president of “Cittadini Reattivi” Rosy Battaglia, the journalist collaborating with Il Sole 24Ore on Travel and Tourism Sara Magro, the lawyer expert in international law Laura Guercio and the actor Mirko Frezza. In the afternoon there will be a conference on human rights with the director of Altraeconomia Duccio Facchini, the sociologist Eurispes Marco Omizzolo, the Equo Garantito councillor Fabrizio Cuniberti and the president of Il Ponte Solidale Stefania Guerrucci. Still on the same theme, in the evening at Sala Frau, the film (ticket: 5 euros) directed by Mick Jackson La verità negata will be screened.

Sunday 18 October 2020, last day of the 2020 Free Wor(l)d Festival, in the morning at the Sala Pegasus there will be a tribute to Andrea Camilleri after one year from his passing, participated by director and dramatist Lorenzo Salveti: Andrea Giuliano, Diletta Masetti and Giorgia Fagotto Fiorentini will read selected passages and there will be an intervention by don Luigi Ciotti. At the Sala Frau there will be the award-giving ceremony of the first edition of the Scientific-Literary Competition “Bernardino Ragni”, intended for the third and fourth classes of second level high schools and continued despite the Covid-19 containment measures, thanks to the tenacity and passion of the teachers who have taken an interest in the students; the competition is promoted by the Associazione Il Contrappunto and IIS Sansi Leonardi Volta.

EXHIBITION | Materia Oscura by Paolo Canevari @ Palazzo Collicola
Oct 17 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.
