PHOTO EXHIBITION | The Hidden Theatre. A story in images @ Museo Archeologico e Teatro Romano di Spoleto

<!--:it-->MOSTRA FOTOGRAFICA | Il teatro nascosto. Una storia per immagini<!--:--><!--:en-->PHOTO EXHIBITION | The Hidden Theatre. A story in images<!--:--> @ Museo Archeologico e Teatro Romano di Spoleto | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

The exhibition The Hidden Theatre. A story in images is a collection of unpublished photographs dating back to the years of the discovery of the Roman Theatre of Spoleto and its unearthing, from 1938 to 1960.

The exhibition, promoted by the Polo Museale dell’Umbria – Museo Archeologico e Teatro Romano di Spoleto, in collaboration with Astra onlus and the Archivio di Stato di Perugia, section of Spoleto, shows photographs coming from the Accademia Etrusca di Cortona and from the archive of the Museo Archeologico Nazionale dell’Umbria. The exhibition reveals unpublished aspects of the discovery of the Roman theatre and the transformation of the complex of S.Agata from a judicial prison (1867-1957) to a museum.

The history of the monastery of S. Agata – already known thanks to the research of G. Curti, S. Di Sante Coaccioli, S. Gubbiotti, resulting in the 2011 documented book “The Roman Theatre and the former monastery of S.Agata. Chronicle of its transformations” – is now enriched by photographs taken by the then inspector archaeologist Umberto Ciotti, who documented every step of the demolition and excavation work.

From 18 December 2018 to 6 October 2019
National Museum of the Duchy (Spoleto) and Temple of Clitunno (Campello sul Clitunno)
The intentional reuse of Roman worked stone in the Lombard Period

Organized by Associazione Italia Langobardorum and Polo Museale dell’Umbria

Opening: Tuesday, December 18 at 12:00 at the Temple of Clitunno and at 15:00 at the National Museum of the Duchy of Spoleto.

The respect and emulation of the ancient, very widespread in the Lombard period, is one of the most obvious phenomena of that process of acculturation and integration of Lombards, very important for their affirmation. It is along the Flaminia Nova, in the stretch between Spoleto and Campello, that one can find numerous monuments that testify to the reuse of ancient materials in buildings of the early Middle Ages and Romanesque age, many of which arose near cemetery areas outside the city.

The exhibition is part of the cycle of events entitled Longobardi in vetrina (Lombards in the limelight), a project within a series of activities promoted by the Associazione Italia Langobardorum – management structure of the UNESCO site Longobards in Italy. The places of power (568-774 A.D.) of which the municipalities of Spoleto and Campello are founding members – for the dissemination of knowledge of Lombard culture.

The exhibitions will be accompanied by educational and training activities and conferences that makes this project the first nationwide exhibition dedicated to the Lombard people, the largest in terms of extension and involvement of institutions and archaeological heritage. The 15 exhibitions will all be inaugurated by the end of January 2018 and will be collected in a single printed catalogue and in a single virtual exhibition created with MOVIO, the multifunctional open source platform promoted by MiBAC, used to create and publish exhibition guides, digital extensions of real and virtual exhibitions.
www.longobardinvetrina.it

Longobardi in vetrina is part of the project Exchange and sharing between museums to enhance the Lombard heritage for which the Association has obtained from MiBACT the admission to funding under Law 77/2006 ‘Measures for the protection and use of UNESCO sites’.

Manual Intelligence: Craft Production and Techniques in the Lombard Period

24 January – 21 July 2019
Museum of the Duchy of Spoleto | MuCiv – MAME of Rome

Openings
Thursday 24 January at 16 – Spoleto
Tuesday 29 January at 11.30 a.m. – Rome

15 exhibitions are held at the same time and 7 themes are treated within the project Longobards in the limelight. Exchanges and sharing between museums to enhance the Longobard heritage, conceived and coordinated by Italia Langobardorum Association, management structure of the UNESCO site “Longobards in Italy. The places of power (568-774 A.D.).

An ambitious project that enjoys the patronage of the Ministry of Heritage and Culture and obtained the contribution of MIBAC Law 77/2006, dedicated to Italian UNESCO sites.

The project aims at raising knowledge about Longobard culture through the enhancement of the museums located in the seven monumental complexes that are part of the UNESCO site, but also of those sites that were involved by the passage of the Longobards. Collaboration and synergy between museums are encouraged by temporary exchanges of artworks, divided into thematic exhibitions, hosted in the 6 museums of the UNESCO site network (National Archaeological Museum of Cividale del Friuli, antiquarium of Castelseprio, Museum of Santa Giulia in Brescia, National Museum of the Duchy of Spoleto, Diocesan Museum of Benevento, TECUM Museums of Monte Sant’Angelo) the Temple of Campello sul Clitunno, and eight other museums throughout Italy.

Exchanges between museums, temporary exhibitions and cultural support activities are also enhanced by an online virtual exhibition created with MOVIO (www.longobardinvetrina.it) and by a single catalogue, characterising this project as the first exhibition to be held nationwide, conceived as a set of exhibitions on Longobard culture; the largest exhibition in terms of territorial extension and involvement of institutions and historical-archaeological heritage.

Spoleto has focused on the theme of Manual Intelligence: Craft Production and Techniques in the Lombard Period.

Two exhibitions, promoted by the City of Spoleto, will be held at the Museum of the Duchy of Spoleto and at the MuCiv – MAME of Rome.

These exhibitions illustrate the technical-productive knowledge of the Lombards in Italy and identify the processes that led this people to integrate their technical heritage, typical of the Germanic population, with the Roman-Byzantine Mediterranean matrix, in a period of transition between the late ancient period and the early Middle Ages.

The Lombards had a particular “vocation for iron, steel and metallurgy” in line with the high technological level of production processes in the rest of the Germanic world, distinguishing themselves in the production of jewellery, weapons and tools.

To illustrate their craft skills, metal objects found in the necropolises of Nocera Umbra (PG) and Castel Trosino (AP) were selected. These objects were created with different techniques: mould casting, cloisonné, punching, filigree, damascening and niello.

Finally, there is also a brief reference to ceramic production, which shows its own clearly identifiable characteristics.

Opening ceremonies will be held on Thursday, January 24 at 16 in Spoleto and on January 29 at 11:30 in Rome.

EKATERINA VORONA – DREAMSCAPE
by Gianluca Marziani

The first opening of the double exhibition of EKATERINA VORONA is scheduled for Thursday, February 14 at 18:30 in Rome at 28 PIAZZA DI PIETRA; the second will take place on Saturday, March 30 at 12:00 in Spoleto at PALAZZO COLLICOLA ARTI VISIVE. The two exhibitions are curated by Gianluca Marziani and have been organized in collaboration with Francesca Anfosso and Anna Vyazemsteva.

Palazzo Collicola Visual Arts continues its strategic research between cultures and geographical identities to define a wide-ranging close-up on contemporary painting. 2019 will see a focus on some Russian authors, starting in spring with the Moscow artist Ekaterina Vorona, who presents the results of the last five years of production. A clear figurative distillate of the aquatic landscape, a homogeneous vision that metabolizes the European research of the late nineteenth century with silent but significant conceptual shifts.

PALAZZO COLLICOLA ARTI VISIVE
There will be about forty works, all in large format, selected by the curator Gianluca Marziani. A homogeneous choice that enters the ambitious heart of Ekaterina Vorona’s painting, making the colours shine on the imposing walls of the museum. A production linked to the last five years of research, entirely documented in the catalogue, published by Carlo Cambi and accompanied by a critical analysis by the curator himself.

LXVII WEEK OF STUDY ON THE EARLY MIDDLE AGES | Scientific knowledge in the early Middle Ages @ Hotel Albornoz
Apr 25 – May 1 all-day
<!--:it-->LXVII SETTIMANA DI STUDI SULL'ALTO MEDIOEVO | La conoscenza scientifica nell'alto medioevo<!--:--><!--:en-->LXVII WEEK OF STUDY ON THE EARLY MIDDLE AGES | Scientific knowledge in the early Middle Ages<!--:--> @ Hotel Albornoz

The LXVII Week of Study on the Early Middle Ages, organized by CISAM, will be held from April 25th to May 1st 2019 at Albornoz Palace Hotel. This year’s theme will be Scientific knowledge in the early Middle Ages.

“The Week of Studies that CISAM Foundation is proposing for the year 2019, Scientific Culture in Early Middle Ages, intends to handle in an organic and methodologically updated manner if not all, at least many of the aspects that make up – like multifaceted plural pieces – the idea of science in early Middle Ages. This choice moves from a methodological proposal of which the program described below intends to represent an application. The very same concept of science, in fact, has not been (and cannot be) taken as an unvarying historiographical category throughout the centuries. Just to use the words of a recent contribution by Tullio Gregory, «in discussing of the scientific thought, it can be more prudent to talk of the manners in which hermeneutic systems have been built in history in order to give a sense to complexes of perceptions and knowledge, using conceptual tools typical of certain philosophical cultural experiences». The very same concept of nature, on the other hand, main subject of the scientific knowledge, is an intellectual construction that must be historicized having regard to a certain reference system. The various forms of knowledge, in fact, are built within religious, symbolic, philosophical and social contexts, which determine their subjects and methods, in a process of ambiguous relationships and fragile balances among different experiences, none of which is preliminarily superior than the others. From this the difficulty arises of precise distinctions, in the East like in the West, between different scientific practices if one wishes to link these to our concept of science.

Strongly anchored to this reference scenario, the program of the LXVII Weeks of studies is made up of a first Part investigating about cosmology of a strictly Christian type, based on a creationist reading of the Bible, making a clear distinction with the knowledge of the past on which the second Part of the Conference focuses. The different disciplines that can be recognized as science of the early Middle Ages (and the most important figures represented in it) are, then, investigated in a direct comparison between the results offered by the Latin West, by the Greek East and by the Arab World. This comparison is, finally, caught both through the theoretical tools that feed it (schools, translations, lexicon, books, conceptual symbols and figurative illustrations), and in the light of the technical applicative aspects that it was able to determine (in frameworks such as calculation, juridical exegesis, construction techniques and minting). Finally, a crucial question: which was in the deeply Christian early Middle Ages, the relationship between science and faith? The ultimate ambition of CISAM Foundation is that – thanks to the commitment of the scholars invited to deliver the different lessons – the Records of the Week may offer an updated momentum of consideration and redefinition, above all on the side of the many anachronisms and various truisms that are still characterizing the study of the scientific thought in early Middle Ages.”

To celebrate the 500th anniversary of Lucrezia Borgia’s death, Sistema Museo, in collaboration with Dr. Paola Mercurelli Salari, director of Rocca Albornoz and National Museum of the Duchy – Polo Museale dell’Umbria, proposes a series of meetings entirely dedicated to the Borgias, because of the relationship that this powerful family had with the city of Spoleto.

The meetings, which will take place every Friday in May at 18.15, will allow to deepen issues related to the figure of Lucrezia Borgia, who was governor of Spoleto and lived here some time.

The first appointment Lucrezia Borgia and Spoleto, scheduled for Friday, May 3, will be held by director Paola Mercurelli Salari with the authoritative musical intervention of Patrizia Bovi, who dedicated to the Pope’s daughter an important musical production of his repertoire.

A tasting of local food will be proposed at the end of the guided tour.
Thanks to Con Spoleto – Consorzio Albergatori di Spoleto.

The appointment is at 18.15 pm at Rocca Albornoz ticket counter.
