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

<!--: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.

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.”

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.

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.

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.
