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.

Fabric – Action
Jun 17 – Aug 31 all-day
<!--:it-->Fabric - Action<!--:--><!--:en-->Fabric - Action<!--:-->

Eleven prototypes of hemp-made objects will be on display at Palazzo Collicola Visual Arts, in the frame of the Fabric-Action Project promoted by Regione Umbria in collaboration with the Hemp Museum – Ecomuseum of the Umbrian Appennine Ridge, the Polifactory of the Polytecnnic University of Milan and Ghénos Communication.

On the occasion of the 2017 Milan Design Week of last April, the project was presented at the Fuorisalone. 80.000 visitors praised the futuristic lines of the eleven objects on display, that include musical and percussion instruments, an air-filtering system, vase-holders for indoor farming, a suspended cradle, a hat by the revitalising properties, and insulating modules. And then there is more, i.e. retro games such as seesaws and skateboards, which sent the imagination of many a visitor back to their childhood days…

All these hemp prototypes were conceived by famous designers or by students who threw their hats into the Fabric-Action ring, to give new shapes and life to this fiber, deeply rooted into the Valnerina’s traditions and lands.

Fabric-Action combines design and digital production through multiple experimentations on hemp, across digital technologies and new production techniques.

In particular, Fabric-Action, conceived and developed to support Valnerina in the frame of the Valnerina – Saper Fare project, blends the material theme of hemp with the immaterial dimension of know-how, that distinguishes Umbria in general.

After the huge success of the Fuorisalone exhibition, the prototypes will be on display at Spoleto – Palazzo Collicola Visual Arts – 17 June through 31 August.

Inauguration: 17 June, 2017 at 12.00

MOONS – Light installation by Giancarlo Neri @ Spoleto
Jun 30 – Oct 8 all-day

60 moons in Spoleto’s sky for the sixtieth Festival of Two Worlds

a project by Giancarlo Neri

LUNE is a light installation spread over the town’s historic center. Sixty luminous globes, with a diameter ranging from 25 in. to 4 ft, will be strategically positioned on towers, churches, palaces and rooftops of the old town so as to always offer a “multiple” view of the sixty satellites orbiting around planet Earth.

“I have been playing with the Moon and with moons for over twenty-five years now, and very seriously. In New York, London, Naples, Rio de Janeiro, Lisbon… and now Spoleto: it’s a fatal attraction and I’ll probably never tire of it.”

Exhibition “1958-2017 – The City in the Festival a Festival in the City” @ Ex Chiesa di Sant'Agata
Jun 30 2017 – Jan 14 2018 all-day
<!--:it-->Mostra "1958-2017 - La città nel Festival un Festival nella città"<!--:--><!--:en-->Exhibition "1958-2017 - The City in the Festival a Festival in the City"<!--:--> @ Ex Chiesa di Sant'Agata | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

In 1958 Spoleto welcomed the first great multidisciplinary art and performance review of the twentieth century, conceived by Gian Carlo Menotti as an opportunity for cross-cultural contamination between Europe and the United States of America.

To celebrate the 60th anniversary of this fantastic creation, the City promotes a major exhibition entitled 1958-2017 – The City in the Festival a Festival in the City.

The exhibition itinerary ideally starts from Rocca Albornoz, with section 1958: alle radici della storia, and concludes in the former church of Sant’Agata, reopened for the occasion, where visitors are plunged into an evocative story of the art events of the last 60 years. This long and suggestive tale unravels across the city along the mechanized paths leading to the Old Town and in commercial activities.

A project conceived and carried out by Emaki Immagine e comunicazione, with the organization and coordination of Stefano Bonilli and Mario Brunetti’s artistic direction.

The section of the exhibition 1958: alle radici della storia is edited by Antonella Manni and Rosaria Mencarelli with the collaboration of Spoleto State Archive Department. The section 1958/2017 set up in the Church of S. Agata has been organized in collaboration with the National Archaeological Museum – Roman Theater of Spoleto.

Inauguration: Thursday 29 June at 5.30 pm at Palazzo Mauri

The exhibition venues:
Church of S. Agata 1958/2017
Casa Menotti – Festival of the Two Worlds Documentation Center

Spoleto Fiberart.II – Contaminazioni @ Museo del Costume e del Tessuto e Officina d’Arte&Tessuti
Jun 30 – Jul 31 all-day

Two years past the first exhibition organized by Officina d’Arte&Tessuti in Spoleto, this year it’s the time of Spoleto Fiberart.II – Contaminazioni from 30 June to 31 July.

The exhibition is curated by Maria Giuseppina Caldarola, will be split between the Museo del Costume e del Tessuto and the exhibiting spaces in Via Plinio il Giovane. A single material is the object of the exhibition, the fiber, represented in a huge number of shapes and uses, hence the title Contaminazioni.

Prominent artists, including Lydia Predominato and Anna Moro Lin, will be joined by young artists. This is the result of the collaboration with DARS Udine, an association that promotes and organizes the biennial Libro d’artista exposition, that will present a selection from the 2016 edition. In particular, it will be possible to examine the works of professors and students of the Bologna and Barcelona Academies of Fine Arts, of the Art School of Udine and Cortina d’Ampezzo, and of the Venice International Graphics School. Students and professors of Paper Technology at the Rome and Milan Academies of Fine Arts were also invited, as well as those from the Weaving and Tapestries Sections of the Rome Ornamental Arts School. The association “Arti Tessili”, organizer of the Valcellina Prize, will present four artists from Germany, Poland, Japan, and South Korea.

GIANNI GIANESE, SCULPTOR OF DREAMS @ Sala espositiva di Via di Visiale
Jul 1 – Aug 30 all-day

curated by Riccardo Buzzanca

The exhibition is a tribute to Master Gianni Gianese, a talent from the Italian 1900s who has just passed away, with a selection of sculptures and sketches created for the motion picture industry and the theater.

Gianese´s artistic story unfolds along the fragile borderline that divides an artist from an artisan; in the case of the Master, this borderline made him lose control of his very existence.

For more than sixty years he shaped the “dreams” of the greatest film and theater directors and scenographers, both Italian and international, giving shape to the sculptures that have become a shared heritage of all those who love cinema, dream, and the lifelike. From Fellini to Pasolini, Terry Gilliam, Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, Luchino Visconti, Elio Petri, Lina Wertmüller and Franco Zeffirelli.

He collaborated, among others, with Luca Ronconi, Carmelo Bene, Mauro Bolognini, Gabriele Lavia, Liliana Cavani, Giorgio Ferrara, Robert Carsen and Grahm Vik.

His collaboration with the Italian scenographer Dante Ferretti was also intense.

He created sculptures for the Teatro alla Scala in Milan, the Salzburg Festival, the Opéra in Paris, Nanterre, Zurich and the major Italian theaters. Today some of his maquettes in the Opéra Garnier section of Paris are permanently exhibited at the Orsay Museum, others at the Louvre.

Photographic and video exhibition to illustrate pope Francis’ encyclical.  Thirty unpublished pictures, flanking as many documental excerpts, proposed by three young artists, Laura Filippucci, Francesca Marinangeli and Eleonora Dottorini. The exhibition ends on Sunday 16 July.

“Everything is connected”: pope Francis submits a thoughtful consideration on the urgency of funneling human development on sustainable tracks, criticising technocracy and proposing to pledge to new living styles. Everything starts from St. Francis’ words “Praise Be To Ye, Lord”, excellent example of the care of what is helpless and of an undisputable sense for ecology.

Auditorium della Stella
August 25, h 21.00
August 26, h. 18.00 and h. 21.00
August 27, h. 18.00

Abecedario Americano, a play by Director Giancarlo Sepe, will be staged at Spoleto’s Auditorium della Stella on August 25, 26 and 27. The show will portray US society at the end of World War II, its economic and cultural growth after the great depression of the 1930s.

Through American major literary authors, such as Steinbeck, Caldwell, O’Henry, O’Hara, Twain, Fitzgerald, Mansfield and many others, and the fundamental contribution of music and songs by Romberg, Lerner and Loewe, Cole Porter, Jerome Kern, the show will outline a likely story of the American family of that time, dealing with war events, defeats and victories, economic boom and cultural growth; the tragedies of a nation whose youngsters were always on the alert for a new conflict, or had to handle with the difficulties of reintegrating into a society who ran fast and did not pay them proper attention; the stories of ordinary people who lived passions and betrayals, births and deaths with the same vital emphasis, fearing the next war that would separate husbands, children and brothers from their families, creating pain, jealousy and revenge, as well as family dissipation. The American dream, which is still so alive today, clashes in fact with the instability of a world that is always on the verge of self-solving, where values have ​​no meaning. The show is also inspired by some dialogues written for the best American cinema, musical theatre and American painting.

ABECEDARIO AMERICANO
Auditorium della Stella
August 25, h 21.00
August 26, h. 18.00 and h. 21.00
August 27, h. 18.00

Abecedario Americano, a play by Director Giancarlo Sepe, will be staged at Spoleto’s Auditorium della Stella on August 25, 26 and 27. The show will portray US society at the end of World War II, its economic and cultural growth after the great depression of the 1930s.

Through American major literary authors, such as Steinbeck, Caldwell, O’Henry, O’Hara, Twain, Fitzgerald, Mansfield and many others, and the fundamental contribution of music and songs by Romberg, Lerner and Loewe, Cole Porter, Jerome Kern, the show will outline a likely story of the American family of that time, dealing with war events, defeats and victories, economic boom and cultural growth; the tragedies of a nation whose youngsters were always on the alert for a new conflict, or had to handle with the difficulties of reintegrating into a society who ran fast and did not pay them proper attention; the stories of ordinary people who lived passions and betrayals, births and deaths with the same vital emphasis, fearing the next war that would separate husbands, children and brothers from their families, creating pain, jealousy and revenge, as well as family dissipation. The American dream, which is still so alive today, clashes in fact with the instability of a world that is always on the verge of self-solving, where values have ​​no meaning. The show is also inspired by some dialogues written for the best American cinema, musical theatre and American painting.

TREASURES FROM VALNERINA
The Dressed Up Madonnas

Mezz’ora dopo la chiusura, the event curated by Sistema Museo in collaboration with the National Museum of the Duchy of Spoleto, awaits you on Friday 8 September 2017 at 19.30 at Rocca Albornoz with a guided visit entitled Treasures from Valnerina – The Dressed Up Madonnas.

The meeting is dedicated to the exhibition Tesori dalla Valnerina extended until November 5, 2017, which collects works from the territories affected by the 2016 earthquake and will be centred on the “statues to dress”, mannequins representing the Virgin or Saints, who were richly adorned with clothes and jewelry. This production, still little investigated, is a phenomenon of great interest both from an artistic point of view and for the knowledge of the history of costume, as well as because it symbolizes the devotion that popular tradition attributed to these simulacra.

The evening continues in one of the suggestive rooms of the fortress with a tasting of typical products and the new coffee line “Lavazza Firma”.

Thanks to Spoleto – Consorzio Albergatori di Spoleto and D. A. Distribuzione Automatica for the support and collaboration offered for the event.

EXERCISES OF VILLAGE STORYTELLING IN UMBRIA
With Franco Arminio, poet and village storyteller

The poet and “village storyteller” Franco Arminio will be the special guest of the two days entitled Exercises of Village Storytelling in Umbria, scheduled for Wednesday 20 and Thursday 21 September.

Defined as “the most followed Italian poet on the net”, Arminio will animate a series of events, in Spoleto and Sant’ Anatolia di Narco, focused on the relationship between poetry and society (There is a need for poetry, for the sacred that in recent years has been neglected) and on the need to recover spaces and regain possession of silence (Being revolutionary means taking away more than adding, slowing down more than accelerating; it means giving value to silence, light, fragility and sweetness), through activities dedicated to art, walks to discover reopened spaces and laboratories of “village storytelling”.

The event is organized by the Municipalities of Spoleto and Sant’ Anatolia di Narco, together with Cittadinanza Attiva, the Museum of hemp and the Municipal Library “G. Carducci “.

LECTURAE DANTIS 2017 
From 6 October to 21 December at the Public Library, Palazzo Mauri

After the success of the last years, the integral reading of Dante’s Divine Comedy resumes from October 6 to December 21, each Friday afternoon at 17 by the Public library in Palazzo Mauri; this leg includes the reading of 11 cantos from the Paradise, from the XIIth to the XXIInd.

Readings will be by actor Claudio Trionfi, with comments by academics co-ordinated by professor Rodney John Lokaj.

During the event, (October through December) some editions of the Divine Comedy owned by the Public Library will be on display, including the 1484 Venetian incunabulus commented by Cristoforo Landino (1424 – 1498).

Nine cycles of reading have already taken place, that featured the first two canticas, and Hell’s first 11 cantos. The experience shows the modern interest in Dante and his work.

Lectura Dantis is a specific form of divulgation à haute voix, historically well defined and codified, which originated in the XIVth century thanks to Giovanni Boccaccio, and evolved through the ages, yet respecting the traditional interconnection between verse reading and exegetical comment.

Meeting with MAARTEN VAN AALDEREN – by Associazione Amici di Spoleto @ Palazzo Leti Sansi
Oct 20 @ 17:00

Friday 20 October 2017 at 17 by Palazzo Leti Sansi (Via Arco di Druso), Dutch journalist Maarten van Aalderen will present his books Il bello dell’Italia and Talenti d’Italia (Albeggi ed.).

While Italy is facing a dire crisis, Il Bello dell’Italia (Italian for: “The Beauty of Italy”) tries to unleash the energy to cheer up. Maarten van Aalderen asked a group of fellow foreign journalists what do they like best of Italy. A passionate collective “chant” of opinions, sensations and experience is the outcome, the story of a wonderous country by the many resources. Il Bello dell’Italia is a book that Italians can be proud of. Talenti d’Italia is also a trip through the excellent emergences of Italy, through 21 interviews, 21 stories of passion, 21 lives consecrated to cinema, music, sport. These young talents, mostly in their twenties and thirties, describe their staircase to success and to international acknowledgement.

A careful observer of the Bel paese, 52 yo Dutch journalist Maarten van Aalderen has been living in Italy since 1990, working for the main Dutch newspaper, De Telegraaf, which also assigned him to Turkey and Greece. His main distress about Italy is that Italy just cannot promote herself or even nurture her own talents, and this is the reason that led him to write his Il bello dell’Italia on such theme. But with his second work, Talenti d’Italia, he went even farther.

Attendees include journalists Italo Carmignani and Roberto Conticelli, Amici di Spoleto president Dario Pompili, Spoleto mayor Fabrizio Cardarelli, head of Instruction and Formation Maria Elena Bececco, head of Culture Camilla Laureti, Bonifica Umbra director Candia Marcucci, CaRiSpo president Sergio Zinni, and president of the “Francesca, Valentina e Luigi Antonini” Foundation Camillo Corsetti Antonini.

LECTURAE DANTIS 2017 
From 6 October to 21 December at the Public Library, Palazzo Mauri

After the success of the last years, the integral reading of Dante’s Divine Comedy resumes from October 6 to December 21, each Friday afternoon at 17 by the Public library in Palazzo Mauri; this leg includes the reading of 11 cantos from the Paradise, from the XIIth to the XXIInd.

Readings will be by actor Claudio Trionfi, with comments by academics co-ordinated by professor Rodney John Lokaj.

During the event, (October through December) some editions of the Divine Comedy owned by the Public Library will be on display, including the 1484 Venetian incunabulus commented by Cristoforo Landino (1424 – 1498).

Nine cycles of reading have already taken place, that featured the first two canticas, and Hell’s first 11 cantos. The experience shows the modern interest in Dante and his work.

Lectura Dantis is a specific form of divulgation à haute voix, historically well defined and codified, which originated in the XIVth century thanks to Giovanni Boccaccio, and evolved through the ages, yet respecting the traditional interconnection between verse reading and exegetical comment.
