Exhibition “1958-2017 – The City in the Festival a Festival in the City” @ Ex Chiesa di Sant'Agata

<!--:it-->Mostra "1958-2017 - La città nel Festival un Festival nella città"<!--:--><!--:en-->Exhibition "1958-2017 - The City in the Festival a Festival in the City"<!--:--> @ Ex Chiesa di Sant'Agata | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

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.

To celebrate the 60th anniversary of this fantastic creation, the City promotes a major exhibition entitled 1958-2017 – The City in the Festival a Festival in the City.

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.

Inauguration: Thursday 29 June at 5.30 pm at Palazzo Mauri

The exhibition venues:
Church of S. Agata 1958/2017

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.

MetaMorfosi Art Gallery Cultural Association presents:
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.”

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

The series of theatre plays for families La Domenica dei Sogni returns again to promote love for theatre among the young. Conceived by Vincenzo Cerami in 2009, it offers children and their families cheerful Sunday afternoon theatre plays by nationwide-famous, award-winning, world-touring Italian companies.

Plays will all be staged at the Teatro Nuovo “Gian Carlo Menotti” on Sundays at 16.30.

Theatre mediation at Palazzo Mauri is also part of the project. The day before the play there will be a meeting at the Public Library at 11.00, led by teachers Lorella Natalizi and Mauro Pietrini of the Associazione Teodelapio.

The meetings will offer the occasion to highlight the themes of the plays, ie friendship, relations, differences, lack of self-confidence, lust for poetry.
