<!--:it-->"Cortesie per gli ospiti" a Palazzo Collicola: Galleria PACK<!--:--><!--:en-->"Cortesie per gli ospiti" at Palazzo Collicola: Galleria PACK<!--:--> @ Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

Palazzo Collicola Visual Arts presents the second stage of the project CORTESIE PER GLI OSPITI (Courtesies for the guests). It is a new cycle dedicated to the world of private gallerists, their stories, choices, passions and intuitions, a captivating, narrative trip, conceived as a cultural adventure, built as an inner retrospective.

After the exhibition with Giovanni Bonelli, it is now the turn of another Lombard gallerist, Giampaolo Abbondio, founder and owner of Galleria PACK in Milan. Curating the exhibiting space will be the figure of Luigi De Ambrogi, former avantgarde gallerist, Abbondio’s comrade in arms and privileged spectator of 15 years of exhibitions with 28 selected artists.

The opening is on Saturday 4 March; the exhibition wil go on till 12 May, 2017.

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.

<!--: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.

L’Umbria si rimette in Moto
The first great event to relaunch tourism in Umbria
Tour Valnerina by motorbike – Let’s start over again from here. Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 March.
For further information: www.umbriamoto.it

The cities of Spoleto and Sant’Anatolia di Narco, the Spoleto Moto Club, in collaboration with Centro Rafting Gaia, il CEDRAV-Ecomusei della Valnerina, Spoleto Tourist Guides, Frantoio Il Poggiolo, propose for Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 March a charming itinerary, named Valnerina in Moto – Ripartiamo da qui (Italian for Valnerina by motorbike – Let’s start over again from here), to discover breath-taking landscapes and lesser-known burgs, yet rich in history and traditions. Hospitality services will be managed by ConSpoleto.

The event is included in the project L’Umbria si rimette in Moto, the first great event to relaunch tourism in Umbria. Many cities and local motorcycle clubs have joined in, answering to an invitation by the city of Assisi, to draw a number of motorbike itineraries for the enthusiasts and tourists, on the last weekend of March.

The meeting point for the registration of participants will be at the Former Spoleto-Norcia Railway Museum in via Fratelli Cervi 10, and will be open from 8.00 to 16.00. The City of Spoleto is developing a series of benefits for the participants: info at IAT Spoleto, 0743/218620 – email info@iat.spoleto.pg.it

Here’s the itinerary details, to be covered on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 March, while on Sunday 26 there will be a guided tour restricted to the first 60 teams that will register by calling 0039 348 7356565.

The tour La Valnerina in Moto – Ripartiamo da qui anticipates what you’ll enjoy along the route since its welcome point, inside the very interesting museum dedicated to one of the most beautiful railroads of the 20th century. The route starts on road SS395 and reaches Piedipaterno, then Castel San Felice with its very beautiful Abbey of St. Felice and Mauro, two Syrian hermits that evangelized the area in the 5th century. Sant’Anatolia di Narco comes next, where it is possible to visit the Hemp Museum (Museo della Canapa), open from 9.00 to 18.00; the museum displays working and weaving tools, a series of textile artifacts and the Textile Labs, restructured in hemp and lime. From Sant’Anatolia di Narco the itinerary goes on toward Gavelli, 1150 m above sea level, deep in the Coscerno/Aspra mountain areas, where eagles nest and where you can find an unexpected gem: a fresco by Giovanni di Pietro, a.k.a. Lo Spagna, portraying Madonna with St. Francis, St. Jerome and St. Anthony. Going on along roads SP 470 and SP 471, you reach Monteleone di Spoleto and its treasures, the farro (emmer, spelt or einkorn), and the Etruscan Chariot, a copy by the School of Manzù of the original, ancient parade chariot in golden bronze with ivory plaques, on display at the MET, NY. The Chariot’s Museum, hosted at the cellar of the Complex of St. Francis, will be opened on the two days of the event from 10.00 to 12.00 and from 14.00 to 18.00. In the afternoon of Saturday 25, from 14.00 to 18.00 it will be possible to taste local products in the square. The itinerary goes on then in the direction of Cascia, where hermitages, parish churches, votive aedicules, villas and castles are but the frame of the outstanding Sanctuary of St. Rita, the saint of impossible causes, and where you can taste the famous Roveja from Civita di Cascia. A historical motorbikes collection will be on display at the Leone XIII parking lot, on Saturday 25. The route goes on in the direction of Norcia, where life is slowly but steadily returning thanks to the will power of the population. As the bikers will leave Norcia toward the West, in Biselli they will be offered a special price by the Gaia Rafting Centre, to descend on rubber boat (nautical equipment will be provided by the Rafting Centre, bikers will only need to be provided with their own bathing suit, wool-cotton shirt, spare socks and towels). At the same centre it will be possible to access the suspended courses over river Corno, also with special prices for the bikers. For these activities, reservation is required, by calling 3487356565 or e-mailing to angelisa@asgaia.it. There is a restaurant in front of the Gaia Rafting Centre, called Ristorante dei Cacciatori, ready to prepare snacks based on the famous product of local charcuterie. Sunday 26, from 11.00 to 14.00, it will be possible to taste a delicious sandwich with pork meat cooked on the spot (please reserve by calling 0743822347). The route goes on then toward Borgo Cerreto, where you turn toward Sellano, whose production of files and rasps is documented since the 18th century: they are still produced following centuries-old methods, a tradition kept at the local museum. From Sellano you go on toward the Soglio Pass, to turn then toward Pié di Cammoro and Spina Nuova, along the old wayfarers’ route heading out to the Holy House of Loreto. Before returning to Spoleto, a visit can be dedicated to the small village of Eggi, a Medieval burg surrounded by centuries-old olive groves that produce a valuable olive oil. The village also stands along the Francis’ Way and the Olive Groves’ Trail, to be covered on foot or by mountain-bike if you wish to reach Assisi.

SPRING DAYS OF FAI 2017 – Extraordinary opening of the Santo Chiodo Works Of Art Depot @ Deposito Beni Culturali
Mar 26 @ 10:00 – 17:30
<!--:it-->Giornate FAI di Primavera 2017 - Apertura straordinaria del deposito dei beni culturali di Santo Chiodo<!--:--><!--:en-->SPRING DAYS OF FAI 2017 -  Extraordinary opening of the Santo Chiodo Works Of Art Depot <!--:--> @ Deposito Beni Culturali | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

The FAI – Fondo Ambiente Italiano (Italian Environment Fund) holds it as one of the most important places among the ones included in the list of extraordinary openings on the occasion of the 2017 Spring Days of FAI: the Santo Chiodo Cultural Heritage depot, which will be exceptionally visitable on 26 March, 2017.

Conceived after the 1997 seismic swarm and finished by 2008, it was created to give Spoleto an anti-seismic structure to store works of art endangered by prospective similar future events, and at present it keeps 5000 works and boxes with archaeological material coming from the Valnerina. A laboratory is active inside, operated by restorers of the Florentine Opificio delle pietre dure. Its visit allows to fully appreciate our great cultural Heritage, understand the work by the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Assets, by law-enforcement agencies, Fire Brigade and Civil Protection, and experience the passion and competence at the service of the areas wounded by the seism, to return the signs of their identity.

The visits will be led by students of the “Pontano – Sansi – Leonardi” school in Spoleto. Accesses will be organized on a group basis, maximum 10 pp per group, every 15 minutes, from 10.00 to 17.30. Access will be allowed upon presentation of one’s identity document. The depot is equipped with a surveillance system.

Contributions of at least 2,00 € are encouraged, but not compulsory, and will be gratefully accepted. In case of huge mass attendance, entrances may be closed before scheduled closing time.

The depot is located close to the well signalled Civil Protection Operative Centre (COC – COM), the Santo Chiodo Industrial Area is along the road from Spoleto to Acquasparta (SS 418).

2017 World Amateur Chess Championship @ Rocca Albornoziana
Apr 1 – Apr 9 all-day
<!--:it-->Mondiale di Scacchi Amateur 2017<!--:--><!--:en-->2017 World Amateur Chess Championship <!--:--> @ Rocca Albornoziana | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

Spoleto will be the World Capital City of Chess from April 1-9. The city of the Festival will host the World Amateur Chess Championship organized by FIDE, the International Chess Federation.

200 participants will represent 80 countries at the splendid Rocca Albornoz; the event is organized in collaboration with the City of Spoleto, along with Conspoleto, CONI and Regione Umbria.

For the organization of the event, Spoleto prevailed over the city of Orlando, FL. There is a special liaison between Spoleto and Chess: the city of the Festival has organized and supported various events by the Chess Academy, such as the Italian Youth Championship in 2011.

The World Amateur Chess Championship has a young tradition, yet it already took place in some great locations: Greece, the island of Rhodes, Romania, Crete, Dubai, Paris, Amsterdam, Singapore, places by the great historical/artistic heritage or a great tourist appeal, like Spoleto, ready to welcome chess enthusiasts and players from the five continents. An international display and an important occasion to promote the city and its beauties.

The World Amateur Chess Championship is for all players that score below 2300 in the ELO rating system.

Max Gazzè: new tour preview
Teatro Nuovo Gian Carlo Menotti / Saturday 1st April 2017

On April 1st, 2017 the Roman singer will perform in Spoleto to present ALCHEMAYA, a symphonic opera played with the Bohemian Symphony Orchestra Prague and produced by Otr Live.

In April 2017 Max Gazzè will be busy with what looks like his most innovative art project: Alchemaya, whose debut is scheduled on April 3rd in the prestigious Teatro dell’Opera in Rome.

Played with the Bohemian Symphony Orchestra Prague, the concert will be composed of two parts: the first one is an original opera in which Max and his brother Francesco transform the esoteric studies developed by Max during the last twenty years into new compositions; the second part presents songs from the singer’s historical repertoire rearranged with a “synthonic” twist, a neologism created to indicate the combination of symphonic instruments and synthesizers.

After Spoleto and Rome, the tour will continue on April 4 at Theatre San Carlo in Naples, on the 8th at Florence Opera Theatre, on the 11th at Teatro Arcimboldi in Milan, on the 13th at Gran Teatro in Padova and on the 14th at Auditorium del Lingotto in Turin.

<!--:it-->Il Libro d'Ingresso - LA CATTIVA NOVELLA di Luis Gabriel Santiago<!--:--><!--:en-->The Entrance Book: THE BAD NEWS, by Luis Gabriel Santiago<!--:--> @ Cinema Sala Pegasus | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

“Entrance Book”, the experimental event conceived by Luis Gabriel Santiago and Victor Maticora debuts with La Cattiva Novella (The Bad News) and I Figli della Ragione (Sons of Reason) at the Sala Pegasus in Spoleto.

The first appointment is scheduled for Tuesday 11 April at 21.30, featuring LA CATTIVA NOVELLA – Storie Crudeli (Cruel Stories) by Luis Gabriel Santiago, with Pietro Biondi. Drawings: Adriana Sotero. Video: Giovanni Barchi.

Thursday 20 April at 21:30, it’s the turn of I FIGLI DELLA RAGIONE. Pensieri da Taschino (Pocket Thoughts) by Victor Maticora, with Corinna Lo Castro. Narrators: Cristina Antonini, Graziano Sirci. Music: Marco Marino. Video: Giovanni Barchi.

The Entrance Book aims at promoting the production and diffusion of any short literature expression, from tales to commentaries, from aphorisms to epigrams, also including poems, micro dramas, nursery rhymes of any kind, scientific prose or narrative for children.

Its concrete expression will be an actual book included in the price of the event, that will be given to the attendees; the book is also the source of the texts that will be dramatized along with music and video projections, the representations of written words.

The project aims at combining theatre with books, to trigger a literary and theatre microcircuit that will hopefully expand and cross many borders. Its conceivers (Santiago and Maticora), founders of the European Academy of Fictitious Science Fiction (Italian: Accademia Europea della Fanta Fantascienza) resume their multi-disciplinary activity that led to the issuing of a book series between 2000 and 2010, as well as theatre plays, concerts and radio plays, which attracted characters such as Anna Proclemer, Arnoldo Foà, Michele Serra, Ugo Gregoretti, Daniele Formica, Edoardo Albinati to Spoleto and its theatres.

Social firmness can truly depend on the committment to produce art and culture, in an area exhausted by a devastating seismic fury.

The Entrance Book: SONS OF REASON, by Victor Maticora @ Cinema Sala Pegasus

<!--:it-->Il Libro d'Ingresso - I FIGLI DELLA RAGIONE di Victor Maticora<!--:--><!--:en-->The Entrance Book: SONS OF REASON, by Victor Maticora<!--:--> @ Cinema Sala Pegasus | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

“Entrance Book”, the experimental event conceived by Luis Gabriel Santiago and Victor Maticora debuts with La Cattiva Novella (The Bad News) and I Figli della Ragione (Sons of Reason) at the Sala Pegasus in Spoleto.

The first appointment is scheduled for Tuesday 11 April at 21.30, featuring LA CATTIVA NOVELLA – Storie Crudeli (Cruel Stories) by Luis Gabriel Santiago, with Pietro Biondi. Drawings: Adriana Sotero. Video: Giovanni Barchi.

Thursday 20 April at 21:30, it’s the turn of I FIGLI DELLA RAGIONE. Pensieri da Taschino (Pocket Thoughts) by Victor Maticora, with Corinna Lo Castro. Narrators: Cristina Antonini, Graziano Sirci. Music: Marco Marino. Video: Giovanni Barchi.

The Entrance Book aims at promoting the production and diffusion of any short literature expression, from tales to commentaries, from aphorisms to epigrams, also including poems, micro dramas, nursery rhymes of any kind, scientific prose or narrative for children.

Its concrete expression will be an actual book included in the price of the event, that will be given to the attendees; the book is also the source of the texts that will be dramatized along with music and video projections, the representations of written words.

The project aims at combining theatre with books, to trigger a literary and theatre microcircuit that will hopefully expand and cross many borders. Its conceivers (Santiago and Maticora), founders of the European Academy of Fictitious Science Fiction (Italian: Accademia Europea della Fanta Fantascienza) resume their multi-disciplinary activity that led to the issuing of a book series between 2000 and 2010, as well as theatre plays, concerts and radio plays, which attracted characters such as Anna Proclemer, Arnoldo Foà, Michele Serra, Ugo Gregoretti, Daniele Formica, Edoardo Albinati to Spoleto and its theatres.

Social firmness can truly depend on the committment to produce art and culture, in an area exhausted by a devastating seismic fury.

Entrance Book: € 8,00

Excursion: Giro dei Condotti and Spoleto’s Thrust Fault @ Spoleto
Apr 23 @ 10:00

Appointment at h 10.00 at the parking lot at the southern entrance of the city. The excursion will head out to the Fortilizio dei Mulini (at the other end of the Ponte delle Torri), on the slopes of Monteluco, along the Giro dei Condotti, towards the Spoleto’s Thrust Fault.

The Fortilizio dei Mulini was a Medieval watchtower over the bridge, and a grinding mill. It stood at the confluence of two aqueducts, one from Cortaccione and the other from Patrico. Before being canalised into the bridge, the water used to activate the grinder of a mill that was operative till the end of the XIX century.

The Giro dei Condotti is a charming trekking route that offers exceptional glimpses on Spoleto and its valley. The name “giro dei condotti” testifies to the presence of the old water ducts underneath the pathway.

The route features 200-million-years-old rock stratifications, including the particularly interesting Spoleto’s Thrust Fault which is the object of this excursion. It is a fault that features older rocks overlapping on younger ones, more specifically, a vast area of Jurassic rock on Cretaceous/Paleogenic rock. Along the Giro dei Condotti there is a rock wall that clearly displays the deformation effect of this overlapping. Another geological phenomenon is visible along the route, i.e. the erosion that produces a tectonic window.

The route goes on then toward Monteluco, its Sacred Wood, and Patrico. The full route lasts 2-3 hours about (stops included).

Your packed lunch will take place on the lawns at Monteluco, and will be followed by the route extension to Castelmonte (2 hours, stops included).

Participation fees: 10,00 € (adults) and 5,00 € (kids above the age of 10), including insurance. Those who come from Perugia and wish to make use of our shuttle service (maximum 8 pax), will pay an extra fee of 5,00 €.

For information and reservations, please email to f.pazzaglia@intgeomod.com or call (+39) 3280726567 (Fausto).
