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. 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. Finally, at 6 p.m. at the Teatro Nuovo Gian Carlo Menotti, the Festival is pleased to propose at the end of this second edition the theatrical performance (ticket: 10 euros) Aletheia: theatre of voices and bodies of women directed by Fabiana Vivani, together with an art exhibition by Maura Coltorti.

This year the Festival features the cultural and social promotion associations BeHuman, Cantiere Oberdan, CittadinanzAttiva, Donne contro la Guerra and Centro Anti Violenza “Crisalide”, Il Contrappunto, Libera with “Angela Fiume”, Sala Frau and the Ubik bookshop.

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. His drawings from the 1990s series Memoria Mia are published in the book of short stories I tacchini non ringraziano by Andrea Camilleri. In 2020 he participated in the following exhibitions: Selfportrait of the artist as a clown at the Gallery Antwerp & Knokke, La Rivoluzione Siamo Noi Collezionismo italiano contemporaneo and Urban Landscapes Human Code at Dip Contemporary Art in Lugano.

Free Wor(l)d Festival for the Freedom of Speech @ Spoleto
Oct 18 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. Finally, at 6 p.m. at the Teatro Nuovo Gian Carlo Menotti, the Festival is pleased to propose at the end of this second edition the theatrical performance (ticket: 10 euros) Aletheia: theatre of voices and bodies of women directed by Fabiana Vivani, together with an art exhibition by Maura Coltorti.

This year the Festival features the cultural and social promotion associations BeHuman, Cantiere Oberdan, CittadinanzAttiva, Donne contro la Guerra and Centro Anti Violenza “Crisalide”, Il Contrappunto, Libera with “Angela Fiume”, Sala Frau and the Ubik bookshop. At the moment with the collaboration of the Umbrian section of Amnesty International, with the partnership of Spoleat, with the support of the Dental Studio of Dr. Cristina Santi of Campello sul Clitunno, with the media partnership of Classicult and Umbria24, with the patronage of the Province of Perugia, the City of Spoleto, the IIS Sansi Leonardi Volta, Articolo21, the National Association of Natural Science and Oxygen Information Teachers.

EXHIBITION | Materia Oscura by Paolo Canevari @ Palazzo Collicola
Oct 18 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.

Solenghi – Lopez – POSTPONED TO APRIL 14, 2021 @ Teatro Nuovo Gian Carlo Menotti
Oct 23 @ 21:00

+++ POSTPONED TO APRIL 14, 2021 +++

SOLENGHI-LOPEZ
23 October, h 21.00 – Teatro Nuovo Gian Carlo Menotti
The return on stage of the famous comic duo in a show of imitations, sketches and musical performances.

Massimo Lopez and Tullio Solenghi return together on stage after 15 years like two old friends who meet again, in a show of which they are interpreters and authors, assisted by the Jazz Company of maestro Gabriele Comeglio. The result is a roaring array of voices, imitations, sketches, musical performances, improvisations and interactions with the public. In almost two hours of the show, Tullio and Massimo, “old stage foxes”, offer themselves to the audience with the amusing and emotional empathy of their unmistakable “trademark”: fun is predominant, but there will be moments of deep emotion.

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.

Oct 25 all-day

curated by Marco Tonelli and Lorenzo Fiorucci
Open to the public from 4 July (15.30) to 13 September 2020

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.

SOLENGHI-LOPEZ
14 April, h 21.00 December 17th, h 21.00 – Teatro Nuovo Gian Carlo Menotti
The return on stage of the famous comic duo in a show of imitations, sketches and musical performances.

Massimo Lopez and Tullio Solenghi return together on stage after 15 years like two old friends who meet again, in a show of which they are interpreters and authors, assisted by the Jazz Company of maestro Gabriele Comeglio. The result is a roaring array of voices, imitations, sketches, musical performances, improvisations and interactions with the public. In almost two hours of the show, Tullio and Massimo, “old stage foxes”, offer themselves to the audience with the amusing and emotional empathy of their unmistakable “trademark”: fun is predominant, but there will be moments of deep emotion.

<!--:it-->64° Festival dei Due Mondi<!--:--><!--:en-->64th Festival of Two Worlds<!--:--> @ Spoleto

64° Festival of Two Worlds
from June 25th to July 11th 2021
www.festivaldispoleto.com

From www.festivaldispoleto.com:

The sixty-fourth edition of the Spoleto Festival dei Due Mondi, the first programmed by artistic director Monique Veaute, opens on Friday 25 June 2021. Founded by Gian Carlo Menotti in 1958, Italy’s oldest performing arts festival once again transforms the city of Spoleto into a stage: from 25 June to 11 July, 60 performances, all Italian premieres, feature more than 500 artists from 13 countries in 15 venues, with some of the world’s best artists and companies offering an uninterrupted flow of music, opera, dance, theatre, allowing audiences to discover the unexpected.

Performances, discussions with artists, collateral events and debates shine a light on contemporary society, illuminating its diversity and complexity. This year at Spoleto, the first edition of Rai’s Festival per il sociale places themes including environmental and economic sustainability, social cohesion and inclusion, the role of women, the new generations and the value of memory at the heart of the discussion.

Dante, Stravinskij, Strehler, Pina Bausch and some of the great classics of the theatre repertoire form a bridge between the past and the future, projected forwards in time thanks to the interpretations of great artists and companies from Iván Fisher to Antonio Pappano, from the Budapest Festival Orchestra to the Accademia di Santa Cecilia, from Mourad Merzouki to Angelin Preljocaj, from Francesco Tristano to Brad Mehldau, from Flora Détraz to Jonas&Lander, from Liv Ferracchiati to Lucien Øyen, from Romeo Castellucci to Robert Lepage to Lucia Ronchetti, and by participants in residencies run by La MaMa Spoleto Open and the Accademia Silvio d’Amico.

There are exhibitions at Palazzo Collicola, while discussions organized by Fondazione Carla Fendi, concerts at the Casa Menotti and numerous collateral events introduce visitors to some of the most beautiful hidden corners of this city.

The 64th edition of the Festival of Two Worlds welcomes live audiences in absolute security. While the health situation means there are restrictions on the number of available tickets, a calendar of online appointments will be streamed via the Digital Stage so that those who cannot attend physically can still take part. A festival which brings people together, creating new opportunities for dialogue and reflection.
