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.

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.

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.

LECTURAE DANTIS 2017 @ Biblioteca Comunale "G. Carducci"

<!--:it-->LECTURAE DANTIS 2017 <!--:--><!--:en-->LECTURAE DANTIS 2017 <!--:--> @ Biblioteca Comunale "G. Carducci" | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

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.

In 2015 an old woman from Mosul flees with her 4-yo granddaughter, covering 5.000 Km from Iraq to the Baltic Sea, across the so-called Balcan Route. This is her story.

Friday 24 November at 21, at the Teatro Nuovo, it’s the turn of Mariti e Mogli, adapted and directed by Monica Guerritore who is also in the cast along with Francesca Reggiani. The play is freely adapted from Woody Allen’s much praised film.

Saturday 9 December at 21, again at the Teatro Nuovo, Massimo Dapporto is the protagonist of Un borghese piccolo piccolo, extraordinary novel by Vincenzo Cerami who inspired Monicelli’s cinema masterpiece, a tragic comedy that offers hilarious moments.

What is life like in an Italian small town? Michele, Stella, Elisa and Caroline are four guys from Todi. A fifth character, a documentarist, connects fiction to reality observing and noting the features of the city and its inhabitants. What is life like in a place where everybody knows everyone? What should you rather avoid doing in Todi? These are but some of the questions that were actually asked to more than a hundred people in Todi, that the play aims at giving back through a collage that supports the story of the four protagonists.

Saturday 20 January at 21 at the Teatro Nuovo, the Györ Ballet Company (one of the oldest, most praised European contemporary dance companies) will stage two masterpieces, Maurice Ravel’s  Bolero and Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana.

The fascist regime didn’t choose one. It counted 1238 and cut twelve, casual heroes of those who only have left an extreme resource of dignity, that of refusal. This happened on 13 November 1931. The theatre play tells the story of one of them.

Thursday 8 March at 21 at the Teatro Nuovo, the closing play will be Rosalind Franklin. Il segreto della vita by Anna Ziegler, directed by Filippo Dini, featuring Asia Argento, Filippo Dini.

As part of the XIV National Urban Trekking Day, whose theme will be Trekking amidst mysteries and legends, the city of Spoleto proposes an itinerary entitled

FROM THE LEGEND OF THE STAR TO LUCRETIA BORGIA’S INTRIGUES

Many legends populate Spoleto’s age-old history, related to local facts and characters. Among the most mysterious ones you certainly find the Miraculous Star, which originated one of the first orphanages on European soil, ruled by Augustinians Nuns. Following the nuns you will reach the church of St. Pontianus, with a first stop at the Roman Ponte Sanguinario, beheading place of Spoleto’s patron saint. The legend mentions it as the arrival point of an underground tunnel from the Rocca that was never found. The ancient fortress’ highest tower is also known as “the possessed one”; the remembering of charming Lucretia Borgia still lingers there; after coming to Spoleto aged 19, she was appointed city governor by her father, pope Alexander VI.

ITINERARY

Meeting is at Piazza Garibaldi (see technical file). Visit to the Auditorium della Stella and Roman Amphitheatre area. Visit to the Ponte Sanguinario (Piazza della Vittoria) – Through Via Cacciatori delle Alpi, Via Micheli and Via della Basilica you will reach the church of St. Ponziano – Return to Via delle Lettere, Via Ponzianina, Via delle Mura Ciclopiche (or the Ponzianina escalator), Piazza della Signoria, Piazza del Duomo (Cathedral), Via dell’Arringo, Via Saffi, Via del Ponte (Ponte delle Torri), Via Gattaponi and the rise to the Rocca (or via the elevator).

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.

The performances will take place in November, on the stage of Sala Pegasus, with three different forms of staging.

On NOVEMBER 10 the series of events will be inaugurated by #SIneNOmine company, an art project involving the prison in Maiano. The company will present LA LETTERA U, with a performance taken from the work of Iginio Ugo Tarchetti, scapigliato writer of the second half of the nineteenth century.

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.

Docufilm presentation: THE GREAT STRIKE – STORIES FROM INSIDE THE EARTHQUAKE @ Sala Pegasus

<!--:it-->Presentazione del film-documentario LA BOTTA GROSSA - STORIE DA DENTRO IL TERREMOTO<!--:--><!--:en-->Docufilm presentation: THE GREAT STRIKE - STORIES FROM INSIDE THE EARTHQUAKE<!--:--> @ Sala Pegasus | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

Wednesday 22 November at 21.30, at the Sala Pegasus, film director Sandro Baldoni will introduce his documentary La botta grossa – Storie da dentro il terremoto.

It is the story of the 30 October 2016 earthquake that hit Central Italy with the strongest shock in 40 years. Baldoni was born and grew in the area of the Sibillini Mountains, devastated by the seismic event.

Starting from his own pulled-down house, and from his own mood, Baldoni travels across the deep fears, traumas, states of anxiety, rage and hopes of the people, in what is a travel from the interior. The meeting will be moderated by Roberto Lazzerini.

The evening will be opened by the short movie Mi vedrai correre (You’ll See Me Running) by independent film-makers ‘The Stairway Production‘ that aims at sending out a message to all those who suffered many a great loss, yet keep on struggling. The short movie was realized by film director Duccio Brunetti and features Riccardo Pompili, Nicolò Marchi, Alessandro Elisei, Diletta Masetti, Mirko Peruzzi, Nicolas Mari. It was selected for participation in the 2018 David di Donatello short movies competition.

Info and reservation: 339.4012680 / cinemasalapegasus@gmail.com

La botta grossa – Storie da dentro il terremoto is a story made by those who were forced out of their homes, like its director himself. The story is the same that was told by the media, but it has a different tone that swerves away from the Breaking News. It faithfully talks of what happens in a year to those who lost almost everything. It teaches how to survive while waiting for the recovery. It is not only a matter of pain, loss or dismay; it also includes a flash of the will, of humanity and self-organization. There is no rhetoric, replaced by irony, the warmth of a pun, of a smile. “Stop surviving, start to live!” Let’s all shake up, after the shocks.

Thus Baldoni undertakes his road-movie among dismal roads, forced stayings by the sea in winter, jury-rigged schools, gyms turned to psychologist studios and stories told by the elders, or a hermit who does something that represents thousands. In La botta grossa you cry and you laugh, while rebuilding a sustainable Newmanity. A film that talks of some people somewhere, to all Italian citizens.

2017/2018 Prose Season
27 October 2017 – 8 March 2018

Ottavia Piccolo, Massimo Dapporto, Monica Guerritore, Francesca Reggiani, Asia Argento, Filippo Dini, David Coco, Liv Ferracchiati are but some of the protagonists of the Spoleto 2017-2018 Prose Season that includes 7 plays, six at the Teatro Nuovo and one at the Caio Melisso.

The start is on Friday 27 October at 21 at the Teatro Nuovo “Menotti” with Occident Express (Haifa è nata per star ferma). Written by Stefano Massini, it features Ottavia Piccolo and the Orchestra Multietnica di Arezzo. In 2015 an old woman from Mosul flees with her 4-yo granddaughter, covering 5.000 Km from Iraq to the Baltic Sea, across the so-called Balcan Route. This is her story.

Friday 24 November at 21, at the Teatro Nuovo, it’s the turn of Mariti e Mogli, adapted and directed by Monica Guerritore who is also in the cast along with Francesca Reggiani. The play is freely adapted from Woody Allen’s much praised film.

Saturday 9 December at 21, again at the Teatro Nuovo, Massimo Dapporto is the protagonist of Un borghese piccolo piccolo, extraordinary novel by Vincenzo Cerami who inspired Monicelli’s cinema masterpiece, a tragic comedy that offers hilarious moments. Adaptation and direction by Fabrizio Coniglio.

Monday 8 and Tuesday 9 January at 21 and Wednesday 10 January at 18 at the Teatro Caio Melisso – spazio Carla Fendi, it is the time of Todi is a small town in the center of Italy, written and directed by Liv Ferracchiati. What is life like in an Italian small town? Michele, Stella, Elisa and Caroline are four guys from Todi. A fifth character, a documentarist, connects fiction to reality observing and noting the features of the city and its inhabitants. What is life like in a place where everybody knows everyone? What should you rather avoid doing in Todi? These are but some of the questions that were actually asked to more than a hundred people in Todi, that the play aims at giving back through a collage that supports the story of the four protagonists.

Saturday 20 January at 21 at the Teatro Nuovo, the Györ Ballet Company (one of the oldest, most praised European contemporary dance companies) will stage two masterpieces, Maurice Ravel’s  Bolero and Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana.

Friday 9 February at 21, Teatro Nuovo, Il Giuramento by Claudio Fava, directed by Ninni Bruschetta and featuring David Coco. Heads, you can count them or cut them. The fascist regime didn’t choose one. It counted 1238 and cut twelve, casual heroes of those who only have left an extreme resource of dignity, that of refusal. This happened on 13 November 1931. The theatre play tells the story of one of them.

Thursday 8 March at 21 at the Teatro Nuovo, the closing play will be Rosalind Franklin. Il segreto della vita by Anna Ziegler, directed by Filippo Dini, featuring Asia Argento, Filippo Dini. The Great History, the discovery of DNA, and the extraordinary tale of scientist Rosalind Franklin’s last years, facing one of the most important, debated discoveries in the history of scientific research.

Chocolate… what a passion! Tastings, cooking shows and themed dinners with live music, lessons for adults, workshops for children and educational courses for schools.

And also conferences and knowledge paths to discover not only true artisan chocolate – good and healthy – but also fair trade chocolate.

Spoleto Choco Fest is the great Feast of Chocolate scheduled from 1 to 3 December in Spoleto.

A sweet appointment for all lovers of the “Food of the Gods”, organized by Associazione Culturale Arti Libere with the collaboration of Proloco and with the patronage of the Municipality of Spoleto.

ChocoArt Feste del Cioccolato is: chocolates and pralines, tablets, chocolate creams and liqueurs, funny sculptures such as mice, ladybugs, shoes, household utensils, mobile phones, which seem to come alive and will be available at the stalls for tasting and sale (always open from 10 to 20).

But for the whole weekend, there will also be the opportunity to plunge in the world of high-quality handmade chocolate, thanks to the many educational activities planned in the Chocolate Factory set up in Piazza Pianciani, a large structure that will welcome visitors, especially children, with the presence of Willy Wonka.

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.

LIGHTQUAKE 2017
Black Light Art and Light Art Exhibition

Rocca Albornoziana – National Museum of the Duchy of Spoleto
6 December 2017 – 25 February 2018
Dukes’ Palace – Gubbio
8 December 2017 – 25 February 2018

When Christmas will turn its lights on, those in Spoleto and Gubbio won’t be just Christmas lightings, but true works of art by the artists involved in the artistic project Lightquake 2017, who will give life to the first Light Art and Black Light Art exhibitions in Umbria, featuring artists who have always been manipulating light.

The artistic project Lightquake was started to support the recovery of the cultural heritage damaged by the 2016 earthquake in Central Italy. A double exhibition will involve the cities of Spoleto and Gubbio, starting in December 2017. From 6 December to 25 February 2018, the exhibition Black Light Art will take place in the inner  and outer spaces at the Rocca Albornoziana – Museo Nazionale del Ducato di Spoleto. From 7 December to 25 February 2018, the Dukes’ Palace in Gubbio will be enlivened by Light Art, through works by Federica Marangoni, Saverio Mercati and Stefano Frascarelli.

During the exhibition, a luminous installation by Umbrian artist Carlo Dell’Amico will be inaugurated at the Tempietto del Clitunno, thus symbolically joining two museums and a monument through light.

The Spoleto core of Black Light Art is composed of: Leonilde Carabba, Claudio Sek De Luca, Ria Lussi, Mario Agrifoglio, Alessio Ancillai, Giulio De Mitri, Nicola Evangelisti, Maria Cristina Fioretti, Yari Miele, ancora un’opera di Federica Marangoni, Sebastiano Romano, Ugo Piccioni, Nino Alfieri. This exhibition has already been organised in Milan and Como, and aims at exploring the artistic values of black light, proposing works by more than 10 artists who experiment with light. Mario Agrifoglio, an artist who made Black Light the core of his artistic experimentation, is the outstanding figure here. Black Light as expressive tool, that can involve the spectator in a sensorial experience where reality, far from appearing in its usual shape, is dressed with unusual, surprising colours and shapes. Light will colour the dark, to bring back the light of life across the earthquaked lands.

The artistic curatorship is held by Gisella Gellini and Claudia Bottini, the exhibition is supported by Polo museale dell’Umbria, Regione Umbria, Cities of Gubbio and Spoleto, in collaboration with Politecnico di Milano and Fondazione Mario Agrifoglio, with the contribution of Associazione Rocca Albornoziana. Società Sistema Museo is entrusted with its production.

THE PAINTING GAME
PAOLA MASINO’S COLLECTION OF PAINTED PLAYING CARDS
7 December/2 April – MAG Palazzo Bufalini, Piazza Duomo – by MetaMorfosi Art Gallery Cultural Association
Opening:  Thursday December 7 h. 12.00

The exhibition will bring to Palazzo Bufalini an extraordinary collection of painted cards coming from the Museum of Rome in Palazzo Braschi.

Conceived by Paola Masino, an unconventional writer and intellectual, the collection was created with the intention of considering playing cards as a work of art, reinvented according to the creativity of her many artistic friends. Carried out with patience and tenacity for four decades, Paola Masino’s project produces a very original bouquet of French, Neapolitan and tarot playing cards, created by the best interpreters of twentieth century art.

From Carla Accardi to Alberto Burri and Consagra; from Carlo Carrà to Campigli and Capogrossi, passing through Cagli, Carlo Levi, Renato Guttuso, Prampolini, Fausto Pirandello, Giosetta Fioroni, Antonietta Raphael Mafai, Pietro Dorazio, Mario Sironi – just to name a few – many important artists took up her invitation, creating these small works of art.

The exhibition The Painting Game. Paola Masino’s collection of painted playing cards, curated by Marinella Mascia Galateria and Patrizia Masini, is organized by MetaMorfosi, thanks to the precious collaboration with Roma Capitale, Department of Cultural Growth – Capitoline Superintendence for Cultural Heritage with the Archive of the twentieth century of Sapienza University of Rome and under the patronage of the Municipality of Spoleto and the City of Rome.

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.

2017/2018 Prose Season
27 October 2017 – 8 March 2018

Ottavia Piccolo, Massimo Dapporto, Monica Guerritore, Francesca Reggiani, Asia Argento, Filippo Dini, David Coco, Liv Ferracchiati are but some of the protagonists of the Spoleto 2017-2018 Prose Season that includes 7 plays, six at the Teatro Nuovo and one at the Caio Melisso.

The start is on Friday 27 October at 21 at the Teatro Nuovo “Menotti” with Occident Express (Haifa è nata per star ferma). Written by Stefano Massini, it features Ottavia Piccolo and the Orchestra Multietnica di Arezzo. In 2015 an old woman from Mosul flees with her 4-yo granddaughter, covering 5.000 Km from Iraq to the Baltic Sea, across the so-called Balcan Route. This is her story.

Friday 24 November at 21, at the Teatro Nuovo, it’s the turn of Mariti e Mogli, adapted and directed by Monica Guerritore who is also in the cast along with Francesca Reggiani. The play is freely adapted from Woody Allen’s much praised film.

Saturday 9 December at 21, again at the Teatro Nuovo, Massimo Dapporto is the protagonist of Un borghese piccolo piccolo, extraordinary novel by Vincenzo Cerami who inspired Monicelli’s cinema masterpiece, a tragic comedy that offers hilarious moments. Adaptation and direction by Fabrizio Coniglio.

Monday 8 and Tuesday 9 January at 21 and Wednesday 10 January at 18 at the Teatro Caio Melisso – spazio Carla Fendi, it is the time of Todi is a small town in the center of Italy, written and directed by Liv Ferracchiati. What is life like in an Italian small town? Michele, Stella, Elisa and Caroline are four guys from Todi. A fifth character, a documentarist, connects fiction to reality observing and noting the features of the city and its inhabitants. What is life like in a place where everybody knows everyone? What should you rather avoid doing in Todi? These are but some of the questions that were actually asked to more than a hundred people in Todi, that the play aims at giving back through a collage that supports the story of the four protagonists.

Saturday 20 January at 21 at the Teatro Nuovo, the Györ Ballet Company (one of the oldest, most praised European contemporary dance companies) will stage two masterpieces, Maurice Ravel’s  Bolero and Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana.

Friday 9 February at 21, Teatro Nuovo, Il Giuramento by Claudio Fava, directed by Ninni Bruschetta and featuring David Coco. Heads, you can count them or cut them. The fascist regime didn’t choose one. It counted 1238 and cut twelve, casual heroes of those who only have left an extreme resource of dignity, that of refusal. This happened on 13 November 1931. The theatre play tells the story of one of them.

Thursday 8 March at 21 at the Teatro Nuovo, the closing play will be Rosalind Franklin. Il segreto della vita by Anna Ziegler, directed by Filippo Dini, featuring Asia Argento, Filippo Dini. The Great History, the discovery of DNA, and the extraordinary tale of scientist Rosalind Franklin’s last years, facing one of the most important, debated discoveries in the history of scientific research.

SCHERMI URBANI
Curated by Gianluca Marziani

SCHERMI URBANI is a Christmas event of public art, strongly wished for by the City administration which entrusted director of Palazzo Collicola Visual Arts Gianluca Marziani with its artistic curatorship.

The event involves some twenty sites in downtown Spoleto, including two former newsstands (Piazza Collicola, Piazza della Libertà), Palazzetto Ancaiani’s six displays (Piazza della Libertà) and some further fifteen dispays scattered across the city centre (Corso Mazzini, Via del Mercato, Via Salara Vecchia, via Minervio): the locations will be coated with great images of contemporary art, created by five artists who already collaborate with Palazzo Collicola Visual Arts.

“After last summer’s performance by street artist Ob Queberry in Piazza del Mercato – said Head of Culture and Tourism Camilla Laureti and Head of Town Planning Antonio Cappelletti – for the Christmas period we wanted the displays of closed shops to become the base for artistic interventions. It is a way to have the city centre live again and to try and envision a different future for this part of the city. We thank the shop owners who accepted to be featured, director Gianluca Marziani and the artists who joined in.”

EXCERPTA – Enrico Corte and Andrea Nurcis @ Palazzo Collicola
Dec 16 2017 – Mar 18 2018 all-day

EXCERPTA is the widest, most articulated exhibition ever by Enrico Corte and Andrea Nurcis, two artists considered to be among the most unclassifiable, experimental and visionary among the Italian contemporary artistic panorama.

It is the very first time that both the Piano Nobile and the Exhibitions’ Floor at Palazzo Collicola are used together for a single exhibitions that intertwines languages, themes, concepts and narrative forms.

The exhibition features two anthological, individual routes and a good number of works signed together, a usual exhibition pattern of the two artists.

Opening: 16 December at 11.30

2017/2018 Prose Season
27 October 2017 – 8 March 2018

Ottavia Piccolo, Massimo Dapporto, Monica Guerritore, Francesca Reggiani, Asia Argento, Filippo Dini, David Coco, Liv Ferracchiati are but some of the protagonists of the Spoleto 2017-2018 Prose Season that includes 7 plays, six at the Teatro Nuovo and one at the Caio Melisso.

The start is on Friday 27 October at 21 at the Teatro Nuovo “Menotti” with Occident Express (Haifa è nata per star ferma). Written by Stefano Massini, it features Ottavia Piccolo and the Orchestra Multietnica di Arezzo. In 2015 an old woman from Mosul flees with her 4-yo granddaughter, covering 5.000 Km from Iraq to the Baltic Sea, across the so-called Balcan Route. This is her story.

Friday 24 November at 21, at the Teatro Nuovo, it’s the turn of Mariti e Mogli, adapted and directed by Monica Guerritore who is also in the cast along with Francesca Reggiani. The play is freely adapted from Woody Allen’s much praised film.

Saturday 9 December at 21, again at the Teatro Nuovo, Massimo Dapporto is the protagonist of Un borghese piccolo piccolo, extraordinary novel by Vincenzo Cerami who inspired Monicelli’s cinema masterpiece, a tragic comedy that offers hilarious moments. Adaptation and direction by Fabrizio Coniglio.

Monday 8 and Tuesday 9 January at 21 and Wednesday 10 January at 18 at the Teatro Caio Melisso – spazio Carla Fendi, it is the time of Todi is a small town in the center of Italy, written and directed by Liv Ferracchiati. What is life like in an Italian small town? Michele, Stella, Elisa and Caroline are four guys from Todi. A fifth character, a documentarist, connects fiction to reality observing and noting the features of the city and its inhabitants. What is life like in a place where everybody knows everyone? What should you rather avoid doing in Todi? These are but some of the questions that were actually asked to more than a hundred people in Todi, that the play aims at giving back through a collage that supports the story of the four protagonists.

Saturday 20 January at 21 at the Teatro Nuovo, the Györ Ballet Company (one of the oldest, most praised European contemporary dance companies) will stage two masterpieces, Maurice Ravel’s  Bolero and Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana.

Friday 9 February at 21, Teatro Nuovo, Il Giuramento by Claudio Fava, directed by Ninni Bruschetta and featuring David Coco. Heads, you can count them or cut them. The fascist regime didn’t choose one. It counted 1238 and cut twelve, casual heroes of those who only have left an extreme resource of dignity, that of refusal. This happened on 13 November 1931. The theatre play tells the story of one of them.

Thursday 8 March at 21 at the Teatro Nuovo, the closing play will be Rosalind Franklin. Il segreto della vita by Anna Ziegler, directed by Filippo Dini, featuring Asia Argento, Filippo Dini. The Great History, the discovery of DNA, and the extraordinary tale of scientist Rosalind Franklin’s last years, facing one of the most important, debated discoveries in the history of scientific research.

2017/2018 Prose Season
27 October 2017 – 8 March 2018

Ottavia Piccolo, Massimo Dapporto, Monica Guerritore, Francesca Reggiani, Asia Argento, Filippo Dini, David Coco, Liv Ferracchiati are but some of the protagonists of the Spoleto 2017-2018 Prose Season that includes 7 plays, six at the Teatro Nuovo and one at the Caio Melisso.

The start is on Friday 27 October at 21 at the Teatro Nuovo “Menotti” with Occident Express (Haifa è nata per star ferma). Written by Stefano Massini, it features Ottavia Piccolo and the Orchestra Multietnica di Arezzo. In 2015 an old woman from Mosul flees with her 4-yo granddaughter, covering 5.000 Km from Iraq to the Baltic Sea, across the so-called Balcan Route. This is her story.

Friday 24 November at 21, at the Teatro Nuovo, it’s the turn of Mariti e Mogli, adapted and directed by Monica Guerritore who is also in the cast along with Francesca Reggiani. The play is freely adapted from Woody Allen’s much praised film.

Saturday 9 December at 21, again at the Teatro Nuovo, Massimo Dapporto is the protagonist of Un borghese piccolo piccolo, extraordinary novel by Vincenzo Cerami who inspired Monicelli’s cinema masterpiece, a tragic comedy that offers hilarious moments. Adaptation and direction by Fabrizio Coniglio.

Monday 8 and Tuesday 9 January at 21 and Wednesday 10 January at 18 at the Teatro Caio Melisso – spazio Carla Fendi, it is the time of Todi is a small town in the center of Italy, written and directed by Liv Ferracchiati. What is life like in an Italian small town? Michele, Stella, Elisa and Caroline are four guys from Todi. A fifth character, a documentarist, connects fiction to reality observing and noting the features of the city and its inhabitants. What is life like in a place where everybody knows everyone? What should you rather avoid doing in Todi? These are but some of the questions that were actually asked to more than a hundred people in Todi, that the play aims at giving back through a collage that supports the story of the four protagonists.

Saturday 20 January at 21 at the Teatro Nuovo, the Györ Ballet Company (one of the oldest, most praised European contemporary dance companies) will stage two masterpieces, Maurice Ravel’s  Bolero and Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana.

Friday 9 February at 21, Teatro Nuovo, Il Giuramento by Claudio Fava, directed by Ninni Bruschetta and featuring David Coco. Heads, you can count them or cut them. The fascist regime didn’t choose one. It counted 1238 and cut twelve, casual heroes of those who only have left an extreme resource of dignity, that of refusal. This happened on 13 November 1931. The theatre play tells the story of one of them.

Thursday 8 March at 21 at the Teatro Nuovo, the closing play will be Rosalind Franklin. Il segreto della vita by Anna Ziegler, directed by Filippo Dini, featuring Asia Argento, Filippo Dini. The Great History, the discovery of DNA, and the extraordinary tale of scientist Rosalind Franklin’s last years, facing one of the most important, debated discoveries in the history of scientific research.

After its successful tour in the Middle East, the Ballet Flamenco Español will perform in Italy with Flamenco en vivo.

The Spanish dance company will be at Spoleto’s Teatro Nuovo Gian Carlo Menotti next January 27, at 21.00.

A show with a live orchestra that will lead viewers into the most fascinating of gypsy cultures. The dancers’ virtuosity, on the boards of the tablao, is interwoven with the sound architectures created by a quartet of masters of flamenco music.

The show, under the artistic direction of Juan Manuel Carrillo and Luis Ortega, features 10 dancers and presents flamenco art in its purest version, the expression of a culture of rhythmic movement, and of a music handed down orally since the fifteenth century.

Over the decades, thanks to the Gypsies’ migrations, dance and music have been mixed and enriched with Middle Eastern and South American cultures. Flamenco en vivo offers a tour around the world involving the spectator with its archaic yet refined expressive power.

<!--:it-->Psychiatric-Alcatraz - Circo-teatro, cabaret<!--:--><!--:en-->Psychiatric-Alcatraz - Circus-theatre, cabaret<!--:--> @ Campo Sportivo di San Nicolò - Via Pietro Falchi | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

Hours to serve during the unpredictable days at Psychiatric-Alcatraz. In the joint, people become a code, numbers; their bodies face abuse and tyranny, till they become empty boxes, caged objects. Who’s the criminal then? Is it the one who disobeys common rules, or is it a hypocrite body that only sees conviction as a punishment? The penitentiary’s director is a doubtless one: convicts are just outlaws and must be treated as such.

Be ready to catch hell then, for hell is your sentence; the joint is a maze, an inside that throws its dark light on a mirroring outside. Only when you’ll hear the clash of the gate that closes behind you, you’ll understand that your life is over.

After the success of Psychiatric Circus, through aerial numbers, music, acrobatics and hilarious sketches, the company enacts a new, irreverent show where artists from all over the world will show their breath of life, their longing for liberty and escape. Never-ending emotions, inspiring images and healthy laughters; ain’t nothing better than provoking thoughts with a smile.

Hours to serve during the unpredictable days at Psychiatric-Alcatraz. In the joint, people become a code, numbers; their bodies face abuse and tyranny, till they become empty boxes, caged objects. Who’s the criminal then? Is it the one who disobeys common rules, or is it a hypocrite body that only sees conviction as a punishment? The penitentiary’s director is a doubtless one: convicts are just outlaws and must be treated as such.

Be ready to catch hell then, for hell is your sentence; the joint is a maze, an inside that throws its dark light on a mirroring outside. Only when you’ll hear the clash of the gate that closes behind you, you’ll understand that your life is over.

After the success of Psychiatric Circus, through aerial numbers, music, acrobatics and hilarious sketches, the company enacts a new, irreverent show where artists from all over the world will show their breath of life, their longing for liberty and escape. Never-ending emotions, inspiring images and healthy laughters; ain’t nothing better than provoking thoughts with a smile.

The Space of Light: Lightquake 2017 conference @ Rocca Albornoz - Museo Nazionale del Ducato di Spoleto
Feb 9 @ 15:00
<!--:it-->Lo Spazio della luce: il convegno di Lightquake 2017<!--:--><!--:en-->The Space of Light: Lightquake 2017 conference<!--:--> @ Rocca Albornoz - Museo Nazionale del Ducato di Spoleto  | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

On the occasion of the Lightquake 2017 exhibition, taking place at Spoleto’s Rocca Albornoz, the conference Lo Spazio della Luce (The Space of Light) is scheduled for Friday February 9th. A meeting to discuss how light shapes the urban space, enhancing the architectural value of buildings thus becoming a free sign in the work of art. The meeting will take place at 3 p. m. at Rocca Albornoz.

Nearly one hundred years after the publication of the book Towards a New Architecture by Le Corbusier, where the great Swiss architect speaks of the duality of light as essential for the livability of space and for the plasticity of the building’s architectural form, in recent years we have come to give the same qualitative importance to what artificial light expresses. Le Corbusier wrote that “Architecture is the skillful, appropriate and magnificent game of volumes under light“. Throughout this century, we have been watching the temporal extension of daily visual quality. Darkness has become the blackboard on which to draw new visual forms and revolutionize the concept of lighting through technology.

Paola Mercurelli Salari – Director of Rocca Albornoz – National Museum of the Duchy of Spoleto, Camilla Laureti – Councillor for Culture of the Municipality of Spoleto, Gianluca Bellucci – President of Sistema Museo, Maria Luisa Guerrini – President of the Architects’ Professional Association of Perugia and Stefano Mancini – President of the Engineers’ Professional Association of Perugia, will open the conference. The meeting will be chaired by architect Fabio Fabiani (OFARCH Officina d’Architettura).

Following interventions: scenographer Sebastiano Romano with “Light Scenographies in the urban space”, lighting designer Filippo Cannata di Cannata & Partners with “The rooms of light”, professor and engineer Marco Frascarolo of the University of Rome Tre with “Light up the city and its monuments” and professor Gisella Gellini of the Politecnico di Milano Scuola del Design with “LIGHT ART art-design-technology”.

The conference will end with a guided tour of the exhibition Lightquake 2017 “Black Light Art – Lighting Coloring the Dark”, with the co-curator Dr. Claudia Bottini and Sistema Museo.

The start is on Friday 27 October at 21 at the Teatro Nuovo “Menotti” with Occident Express (Haifa è nata per star ferma). Written by Stefano Massini, it features Ottavia Piccolo and the Orchestra Multietnica di Arezzo. In 2015 an old woman from Mosul flees with her 4-yo granddaughter, covering 5.000 Km from Iraq to the Baltic Sea, across the so-called Balcan Route. This is her story.

Friday 24 November at 21, at the Teatro Nuovo, it’s the turn of Mariti e Mogli, adapted and directed by Monica Guerritore who is also in the cast along with Francesca Reggiani. The play is freely adapted from Woody Allen’s much praised film.

A fifth character, a documentarist, connects fiction to reality observing and noting the features of the city and its inhabitants. What is life like in a place where everybody knows everyone? What should you rather avoid doing in Todi? These are but some of the questions that were actually asked to more than a hundred people in Todi, that the play aims at giving back through a collage that supports the story of the four protagonists.

Saturday 20 January at 21 at the Teatro Nuovo, the Györ Ballet Company (one of the oldest, most praised European contemporary dance companies) will stage two masterpieces, Maurice Ravel’s  Bolero and Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana.

The fascist regime didn’t choose one. It counted 1238 and cut twelve, casual heroes of those who only have left an extreme resource of dignity, that of refusal. This happened on 13 November 1931. The theatre play tells the story of one of them.

Thursday 8 March at 21 at the Teatro Nuovo, the closing play will be Rosalind Franklin. Il segreto della vita by Anna Ziegler, directed by Filippo Dini, featuring Asia Argento, Filippo Dini.

National Memorial Day of the Exiles and Foibe @ Cinema Sala Frau
Feb 10 @ 18:30
<!--:it-->Foibe, il Giorno del Ricordo. Le iniziative a Spoleto<!--:--><!--:en-->National Memorial Day of the Exiles and Foibe<!--:--> @ Cinema Sala Frau | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

On the occasion of the National Memorial Day of the Exiles and Foibe, established to preserve and renew the memory of the victims of the foibe and the Istrian-Dalmatian exodus, the Municipality of Spoleto organizes two events: the screening, at Sala Frau, of a documentary on the tragedy of the exodus and a round table at the municipal library with various contributions on the theme.

The first appointment is scheduled for Saturday 10 February with a double screening, at Cinema Sala Frau, of the documentary film Magna Istria by Cristina Mantis. At 10.30 am the screening is reserved for students and at 18.30 the screening will be open to the public. The documentary is the story of a journey to Istria in search of an ancient Istrian recipe. Francesca, a young woman from Turin, nephew of Istrian exiles, has lost her grandmother’s recipe book containing, among others, the recipe of “Il Castello di Croccante”, which is now impossible to find. So she starts a journey in search of the recipe, in an attempt to recompose the entire grandmother’s book; she travels across Italy until she finds herself in the marvellous land of Istria, discovering his painful and controversial history. Crossing physical and emotional borders, Francesca will come into contact with the tragedies of the exodus and the foibe, and with their victims. Through food she will find a ground for dialogue and commonality.

A conversation on the foibe, entitled Remembrance: history, words, images is scheduled for Wednesday, February 14th, at the Municipal Library “G. Carducci” in Palazzo Mauri (h. 17.30).

Franco Papetti from the Associazione Nazionale Venezia Giulia e Dalmazia and Giovanni Stelli from the Società di Studi Fiumani will attend the round table, coordinated by journalist Andrea Tomasini.

DMZ: Dissonance, technology and liberty: performance presentation @ Cantiere Oberdan

<!--:it-->DMZ: Dissonanza, tecnologia e libertà: presentazione della performance/spettacolo<!--:--><!--:en-->DMZ: Dissonance, technology and liberty: performance presentation<!--:--> @ Cantiere Oberdan | Spoleto | Italia

Saturday 10 February at 21.00 at the Cantiere Oberdan there will be the presentation of DMZ: Dissonance, technology and liberty, an international artistic residence created among Seoul, Rome, New York and Spoleto.

This particular international artistic Residence takes place simultaneously in New York and in Italy. The two places are tied together, allowing a group of Italian and Korean students to work together participating in a series of workshops and seminars on the use of media in performing and in the theatre as a tool to develop relations and social activism. The residence will end on 10 February with a performance open to the public at the Cantiere Oberdan in Piazza San Gabriele dell’Addolorata at 21.00.

The very event will be seen live in New York at the NY CultureHub at 15.00 (47, Great Jones Street, New York, NY).

DMZ: Dissonance, technology and liberty is the theme of the creative residence. DMZ is an acronym that stands for Demilitarized Zone, and it refers to the borders between North and South Korea; it is also known as 38th parallel, an area that was recently at the core of the attention by international media. In this collaboration, this expression is also symbolicvally used to define the digital dimension that separates and links at the same time the two spaces, a dimension that hosts the creative collaboration, the exchange of competences and the cultural interaction.

Technology is developing faster and faster, and enter our lives and each sector of society, opening a new interaction dimension that melts the physical, digital and biological ones together. But, can such a virtual space really succeed and find a true contact, or does it push us apart? Does it help us improve the quality of life? During this project, students, teachers and artists are invited to investigate on the matter of personal freedom and how this can be confined or expanded by the fast development of technology in the contemporary world.

At 10.30 am the screening is reserved for students and at 18.30 the screening will be open to the public. The documentary is the story of a journey to Istria in search of an ancient Istrian recipe. Francesca, a young woman from Turin, nephew of Istrian exiles, has lost her grandmother’s recipe book containing, among others, the recipe of “Il Castello di Croccante”, which is now impossible to find. So she starts a journey in search of the recipe, in an attempt to recompose the entire grandmother’s book; she travels across Italy until she finds herself in the marvellous land of Istria, discovering his painful and controversial history. Crossing physical and emotional borders, Francesca will come into contact with the tragedies of the exodus and the foibe, and with their victims. Through food she will find a ground for dialogue and commonality.

A conversation on the foibe, entitled Remembrance: history, words, images is scheduled for Wednesday, February 14th, at the Municipal Library “G. Carducci” in Palazzo Mauri (h. 17.30).

Franco Papetti from the Associazione Nazionale Venezia Giulia e Dalmazia and Giovanni Stelli from the Società di Studi Fiumani will attend the round table, coordinated by journalist Andrea Tomasini.
