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.

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.

LIBRO D’ INGRESSO (Entrance Book) is a special event’s formula inaugurated last spring, in collaboration with the direction of Cinema Sala Pegasus and with the support of Spoleto’s Department of Culture. Its creators, V. Maticora and L. G. Santiago, present three new evenings of shows combined with three books.

The recipe is always the same: the entrance “ticket” is the book from which the performance of words, music and everything else is based.

The successful public participation of the previous edition encouraged organizers to repeat the experiment and involve even more subjects in the attempt to create a real creative workshop around the idea of “short literature”.

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. Interpreters: Diletta Masetti and Roberto di Sibbio for

On NOVEMBER 16, Italian actor and dubber Pietro Biondi will bring on stage CREATURE NON PERVENUTE, an imaginary bestiary that collects stories of absurd and improbable living beings written by Luis Gabriel Santiago.

On NOVEMBER 23,  AI PIEDI DELLA NOTTE, a collection of poetry and prose by Rutilio Clivi, will conclude the cycle of the Entrance Book. The show will be played by actors Cristina Antonini and Maurizio Armellini together with the singer Nyla van Ingen, who will perform the lieder composed by maestro Stefano Taglietti – also on stage – taken from the volume’s poems.

The successful public participation of the previous edition encouraged organizers to repeat the experiment and involve even more subjects in the attempt to create a real creative workshop around the idea of “short literature”.

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. Interpreters: Diletta Masetti and Roberto di Sibbio for

On NOVEMBER 16, Italian actor and dubber Pietro Biondi will bring on stage CREATURE NON PERVENUTE, an imaginary bestiary that collects stories of absurd and improbable living beings written by Luis Gabriel Santiago.

On NOVEMBER 23,  AI PIEDI DELLA NOTTE, a collection of poetry and prose by Rutilio Clivi, will conclude the cycle of the Entrance Book. The show will be played by actors Cristina Antonini and Maurizio Armellini together with the singer Nyla van Ingen, who will perform the lieder composed by maestro Stefano Taglietti – also on stage – taken from the volume’s poems.

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.

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.

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.
