Destruction for Creation – SOICHIRO SHIMIZU at Palazzo Collicola @ Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive
Mar 4 – May 28 all-day
<!--:it-->Destruction for Creation - Mostra di SOICHIRO SHIMIZU a Palazzo Collicola<!--:--><!--:en-->Destruction for Creation - SOICHIRO SHIMIZU at Palazzo Collicola<!--:--> @ Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

RESIDENCE COLLICOLA is a format for young artists from abroad, who are called for their first exhibiting adventure in Italy; this time it is SOICHIRO SHIMIZU‘s turn, a Japanese artist who is crossing an ideal linguistic bridge between European values and Asian culture. Born and grown in Japan, Shimizu has been spending some time in Bangkok in the last years, where he conducts part of his major researches. This is his debut in Spoleto, after some trips to Umbria. DESTRUCTION FOR CREATION is a title that was envisaged after the August and October earthquakes in Central Italy, when Shimizu’s project was maturing in his Bangkok and Tokyo ateliers. Japan’s antiseismic culture is a an ethical and architectural pillar of Japanese civilization. Hence the idea that each destruction process becomes the prompt of creation that absorbs and levels all mistakes in a shared growth, turning yesterday’s false steps into tomorrow’s skilled pace, infusing the work with the value of experience and the sign of holistic rebirth.

Umbria and Japan are far from each other on a world scale, yet close for their inner geological features, subterranean dynamism, the deep silence of their natural environments, their meditative mysticism that finds its chamber of human wonders on the mountains.

The exhibition will go on till 28 May, 2017.

Guests At The Rocca – Treasures From The Valnerina @ Rocca Albornoziana
Mar 5 – Nov 5 all-day
<!--:it-->Ospiti in Rocca - Tesori della Valnerina<!--:--><!--:en-->Guests At The Rocca - Treasures From The Valnerina<!--:--> @ Rocca Albornoziana | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

Rocca Albornoz – National Museum of the Duchy of Spoleto

5 March – 30 July 2017

GUESTS AT THE ROCCA – from 5 March

TREASURES FROM THE VALNERINA – from 9 April

An extraordinary body of works join the collections on display at the Rocca Albornoz – National Museum of the Duchy of Spoleto, for a unique exhibition, a tribute to the vitality of Umbria, a land that knows how to react. The exhibition is strictly connected to the fundraising campaign to support the restoration of works damaged by the earthquake.

Umbria is a land that reacts to the events with the strength of her cultural heritage. From 5 March to 30 July 2017, the Rocca Albornoz – National Museum of the Duchy of Spoleto will host a series of works that were spared from ruin after the recent earthquake in Central Italy, thanks to an important exhibition organized by Regione Umbria, Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Assets and Tourism, Spoleto-Norcia Archdiocese and the City of Spoleto. Sistema Museo will be the exhibition’s operative managing subject. The event is included in the “Discovering Umbria” programme, supported by Regione Umbria to promote and highlight the museum activities.

The exhibition “Treasures from the Valnerina” opens on 5 March with a body of works coming from areas of Marche, Lazio and Umbria, that were struck by the earthquake, an evidence of solidarity among areas sharing such a mournful event, as well as cultural and artistic roots. The exhibition features works selected following various criteria, yet they all show a very deep symbolism, such as the 16th-century Wooden Crucifix from the church in Sant’Anatolia di Narco, a 16th-century “Madonna with Child” from Avendita, the Annunciation by Andrea della Robbia from the Castellina Museum, Norcia, an exquisite “Madonna with Child” (painting on table) by Ulisse da Siena, previously at the Diocesan Museum in Ascoli Piceno, and a refined “St. Sebastian” dating to the second half of the 17th century, coming from Scai, close to Amatrice. The exhibition is strictly tied to the crowdfunding campaign that started on 1 February, to support the restoration of other works of art that were damaged by the seism. It is possible to participate in the campaign here: (https://valorecultura.starteed.com/it/lightquake).

From 9 April, a wide selection of works already restored after 24 August 2016, will be included in the exhibition “Treasures from the Valnerina”. These artistic treasures are ambassadors to Italy and to the world of Umbria’s vitality, a “collective tribute” to an invaluable richness of art and history.
The 2016 earthquake struck hard the cultural heritage of an area of Umbria, the Valnerina, which is for many the place of soul. Not only a land of spirituality, tied to St. Benedict and St. Rita from Cascia, but also a harmonious whole of landscape, burgs, churches, and works of art, now wounded by the merciless shocks that started on 24 August and went on for the whole autumn, 2016. The work and self-denial of many who operated in this emergency (MiBACT, Fire Brigade Units, Italian Army, Civil Defence, Carabinieri’s Cultural Heritage Protection Unit, Volunteers) allowed to rescue many works from damaged churches and museums in Valnerina, and to store them in the Santo Chiodo di Spoleto specialized depot (4000, so far). From here, they will be able to receive the “cures” by restorers at the Vatican Museums, at the Florence Opificio delle Pietre Dure and other skilled restorers, and wait to return to their original settings, when ready. In the meantime, thanks to the project “Discovering Umbria”, it will be possible to see a significant part of them in an exhibition at the National Museum of the Duchy of Spoleto, where they will be on display from 9 April.

What will be possible to see in the Spoleto exhibition is the result of a committment that started soon after the earliest shocks, a sign of the professionalism and competence of the many who were called to protect the cultural heritage. Only a small part of Umbria was directly damaged by the earthquake, even if the images of seriously-struck churches have moved many a heart, but the will of the Umbrian community is that of not giving up and continue to protect their historical and artistic heritage.
The earthquake’s wounds are faced by bodies and people with the invitation to all those who love Umbria to come and visit its museums and monuments, which are open, vital, and offer an extraordinary view on history, art, environment and traditions.

DISCOVERING UMBRIA

“Discovering Umbria” shows a land that reacts to the events with the strength of its cultural heritage. Art and history meet in the region’s museum network, that features more than 170 museums, ecomuseums and archaeological sites. In the land of Giotto, Signorelli, Perugino and Burri, each museum is an evidence of the connection between community and land.
Museums represent the main tool to know the history, art, burgs and landscape of Umbria: hundreds of proposals, itineraries and curiosities that raise intense emotions, an invitation to discover the art that has marked the history of this land and become one with the contemporary.

TRAME LONGOBARDE – exhibition at the Rocca Albornoz @ Rocca Albornoziana
Mar 16 – Oct 1 all-day
<!--:it-->TRAME LONGOBARDE - Tra architettura e tessuti<!--:--><!--:en-->TRAME LONGOBARDE - exhibition at the Rocca Albornoz<!--:--> @ Rocca Albornoziana | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

An extraordinary reconstruction work on the basis of archaeological information, a trip to discover the Longobards’ daily life through textiles, clothes and jewels of this extraordinary people; the exhibition Trame longobarde: tra architettura e tessuti opens on Thursday 16 March at 12.30, at the National Museum of the Duchy by the Rocca Albornoz. It will be visitable till 18 June (extended to October 1st)

The exhibition returns to Spoleto after four years, and after having been on display in Monte Sant’Angelo, Brescia, and Benevento. Future stages include Cividale del Friuli, the National Museum of the Early Middle Ages in Rome, Ferentillo, Abbadia San Salvatore (Siena).

Textiles and hems were created by the inmates of the Spoleto Jailhouse that have participated in the weaving course, using school looms of the IIS Sansi Leonardi Volta. The compositions were done studying the scarce traces found in the few sources available, the Historia Langobardorum by Paul the Deacon, but the result is an accurate proposal of the old weaving techniques in the Early Middle Ages. Various social ranks are represented, and the visitor will be led by horsey icons and spears, through 4th/8th-century-old finds, to meet the protagonists of Trame Longobarde on the background of images of the Basilica of San Salvatore.

The exhibition is curated by Glenda Giampaoli and Giorgio Flamini, with the scientific support by Donatella Scortecci. The project is the result of an exceptional collaboration of bodies and institutions, including Comune di Spoleto, Regione Umbria, Istituto Sansi Leonardi Volta, the Spoleto Jailhouse, the National Museum of the Duchy, all of them co-ordinated and directed by the Association Italia Langobardorum.

Digital art pioneer Laurence Gartel at Spoleto @ Palazzo Bufalini
May 23 @ 16:30
<!--:it-->Il pioniere della digital art Laurence Gartel a Spoleto<!--:--><!--:en-->Digital art pioneer Laurence Gartel at Spoleto<!--:--> @ Palazzo Bufalini | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

Digital art pioneer Laurence Gartel will be in Spoleto on Tuesday 23 May at 16.30 on the occasion of the presentation of the Warhol vs Gartel. Hyp Pop exhibition catalogue. The meeting will take place at Palazzo Bufalini in Piazza Duomo.

Featured guests include Spoleto mayor Fabrizio Cardarelli, Head of Culture at the City of Spoleto Camilla Laureti, MetaMorfosi chairman Pietro Folena, presidente di Metaforfosi and art critic Gianluca Marziani.

The Warhol vs Gartel. Hyp Pop exhibition at Palazzo Bufalini has brought pop-art in Spoleto, introducing one of the most stimulating artistic confrontations of the recent past. Its undisputed master Andy Warhol (1928 Pittsburgh – 1987 New York) and Laurence Gartel (1956 New York), who redifined pop-art in its “digital format” digitale, face each other in an unprecedented “challenge” at the MAG MetaMorfosi Art Gallery in Piazza Duomo, with fifty original works by both artists.

The exhibition, produced and organized by Associazione MetaMorfosi in collaboration with Spirale di Idee and Artelite, and is curated by Lu.C.C.A. (Lucca Center of Contemporary Art) director Maurizio Vanni, with the support of the City of Spoleto and of Regione Umbria, displays the confrontation of two kindred worlds, i.e. Pop Art and Digital Art, which profoundly transformed the common sense of Art since the 1970s.

BIOGRAPHY. Laurence Gartel was born on 5 June 1956 in New York, NY, and since he was very young he showed an interest for visual arts. He studied at the High School of Music and Art, attended courses at the Fashion Institute of Technology and at the Art Student League, obtaining a diploma from the School of Visual Arts in New York. In 1975 he frequented the Media Study in Buffalo, where he met videoart shaman Nam June Paik, with whom he started a collaboration and started his career in the field of electronics. It is at the Media Study that he gets in touch with the first system for video elaboration, a Ruth-Etra Synthetizer, that creates bending effects on three axes, and a Paik-Abe Colorizer, that gives colour to black-and-white images. Yet those were no good times for good-quality video printing, therefore he had to take pictures of his monitor to save his works. In 1978 he moves to the Experimental Television Center in New York, where he starts working with a Paik-Abe Wobulator – a device that can distort images in trigonometrically calculated waves – and with a first digital computer, the Cromeco Z-2, featuring a floppy disk unit with a capacity of 2 Kilobytes. In1981, Gartel starts working on an Atron Studio Computer, that could display millions of colours: this gave him the opportunity to create multiple copies of the same image and to draw like he hed never been able to before. In 1984 the first Apple Macintosh came to light, featuring the Mac Paint software: after years of research on colours, he returns to black and white and the theory of graphics applied to art renews out of necessity: freehand-drawn signs and symbols blend with digital images in a composition that shows no chiaroscuro and is strongly pixelled. To reproduce these works, Gartel uses an Imagewriter dot matrix printer, but the effect is far from what he wished, so he keeps on taking pictures of the prints. 1985 is the year the Commodore Amiga 1000 was introduced, the first desktop computer that could manage 32 distinct colours. In combination with the Deluxe Paint software, it is considered the first computer for digital art production. In the same period, Xerox starts marketing the Art Color Ink-Jet printer, that combined with a clay base, gives colours a pastel-like vibration. Finally could Gartel fully exalt his digital images, printing them directly without need to photograph them, using the computer as a full-blown art tool. That was when he started working with Warhol, showing him how the new Commodore-Amiga system worked.

World Environment Day @ da Piazza della Libertà
Jun 5 @ 20:30

On the occasion of the  2017 World Environment Day, UNEP (United Nations Environment Programme) has proposed to cast green light on historical buildings and iconic sites, to celebrate this year’s theme Connecting with Nature; the New York Empire State Building, the Niagara Falls in Canada and the Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, are but some of the sites that will be enlightened in green.

The City of Spoleto has joined the initiative, to underline the old connection between Man and Nature, a feature of Spoleto’s area.

Monday 5 June the churches of St. Peter and St. Pontianus will be the object of a special green lighting, while a “Bat Night” will take place at the Giro della Rocca: expert researchers at the Studio Naturalistico Hyla will lead participants in search of bats, sole existing flying mammals.

A special “bat detector” will be used, to help participating humans detect the ultrasounds produced by bats, to then identify species, and learn about their biology and habits.

The appointment is on Monday 5 June at 20.30 in Piazza della Libertà. “Spoletocammina” will also join the initiative.
