PHOTO EXHIBITION | The Hidden Theatre. A story in images @ Museo Archeologico e Teatro Romano di Spoleto
Jul 21 2018 – Dec 31 2019 all-day
<!--: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 A story in images is a collection of unpublished photographs dating back to the years of the discovery of the Roman Theatre of Spoleto and its unearthing, from 1938 to 1960.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 The exhibition reveals unpublished aspects of the discovery of the Roman theatre and the transformation of the complex of S.Agata from a judicial prison (1867-1957) to a museum.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.

Gallery Concerts
2019/2020 Season

Sunday 8 December 2019 at 11 at the Sala Pegasus in Piazza G. Bovio, Spoleto, the first concert of the new season organised by Officina d’Arte e Tessuti will take place.

As usual, curators identified a specific period and analysed it, to offer the audience a reading of the historical, artistic context, to define connections between music and visual arts in an acoustically perfect, architecturally stimulating environment, not unlike how the gallery organises its contemporary art exhibitions.
Last year’s theme was Romanticism, in particular the romantic lied, while this year the focus is on the XXth Century. “XXth-century Musical Routes” is the title of this edition, that opens on December 8 with a performance dedicated to two fundamental authors of modern and contemporary music, Alban Berg e Paul Hindemith.

Teatro Nuovo “Gian Carlo Menotti”
Maurizio De Giovanni is a Neapolitan writer of international renown, who authored numerous successful books, from the series Il Commissario Ricciardi to I bastardi di Pizzofalcone. This time he has taken on the comedy, whose result is now going on stage under the direction of Alessandro Gassmann.

“This story has very big surprises in it, mysteries that only a great mystery writer like Maurizio De Giovanni would have been able to handle with this ability, that really make it a small contemporary classic. Theatre needs actors who stick to the characters in a modern way, and I think that Massimiliano Gallo, with whom I shared film sets and adventures, is today one of the most effective and complete Italian actors. It will be a great joy for me to direct him on a character who is ideal on him. This is what we do at the theatre, or at least we strive to do, we desperately seek the truth, and we trust in your desire to believe in it. Have fun.” Alessandro Gassmann

Exhibition | Convergenze. Notargiacomo and the Spoleto Modern Art Gallery Collection @ Palazzo Collicola
Dec 14 2019 – Mar 8 2020 all-day

Convergenze. Notargiacomo and the Spoleto Modern Art Gallery Collection
curated by Marco Tonelli
“G. Carandente” Modern Art Gallery
PALAZZO COLLICOLA – Spoleto
14 December 2019 – 8 March 2020

Inauguration
Saturday 14 December 2019 – h 11.30

Open: Friday, Saturday and Sunday
10:30 – 13:00 / 15:00 – 17:30

In many ways, Gianfranco Notargiacomo is a forerunner of non-codified languages, capable of moving from form to image, from structure to painting with the same skill and intelligence. Precisely for this reason it represented the solution to contrasting, intertwined nodes, opposing with one another, divergent and converging at the same time.

The Spoleto Modern Art Gallery has a rich deposit of works, mostly donations or acquisitions made over the years, some of which are destined to rotate and leave the stores from time to time. 

Gianfranco Notargiacomo accepted the invitation to seek a dialogue with the artists and the works of the collection preserved in the deposits of Santo Chiodo, finding the keystone of the curatorial proposal in about twenty paintings by authors with whom he had an actual relationship, such as Burri, Sadun, Bendini, Pace, Vacchi, Asdrubali, Rossano, Gandini, Cascella, Ceroli, Boille, Cotani, Mattiacci, Luzzi, Pozzati.

The Convergenze exhibition opens at Palazzo Collicola Saturday 14 December at 11.30 and will be visitable till Synday 8 March 2020. The exhibition project takes the title from the famous installation Le nostre divergenze, the artist’s first personal exhibition held in Rome in 1971 at Plinio De Martiis’ La Tartaruga Gallery, then repeated several times over the decades in various museums, including the National Gallery of Modern Art in Rome: over two hundred colored plastic dolls that invade the gallery in all its spaces. The first time it was exhibited in public the installation was defined in the Herald Tribune by Edith Schloss as “The most surprising show”. 

In the spaces of the ground floor of Palazzo Collicola, right where the permanent collection of the Gallery of Modern Art was once located, about 140 little men will talk with the works selected from the collection’s deposit, in a continuous flow between memory and present, as if they were witnesses enchanted by an apparition, by an unveiling. On the occasion of the Notargiacomo exhibition, he will donate one of his sculptures, a typical Takete, to the Galleria d’Arte Moderna in Spoleto, which will also be part of the exhibition along with other sculptures in the series, symbolically bringing together his works with those of the museum. During the exhibition, a public meeting will be held in which the artist will illustrate his links with the individual artists with whom he has chosen to dialogue. The exhibition is organized in collaboration with the RUFA of Rome. 

The exhibition will be open from Friday to Sunday, on Thursday 26 December and on Monday 6 January 2020 from 10.30 to 13.00 and from 15.00 to 17.30.

Raspi: Collages and paintings 1959 – 1963

The exhibition focuses on a Spoletan artist who as a member of the Spoleto Six and whose works are included in the Modern Art Gallery’s collection.

An experimentation that originated between 1958 and 1964, the Collages represent the climax of an importsant aesthetic research by Piero Raspi. Since the earliest 1958 works, still as a member of the Six, their abstract, refined architectures of simple, overlapping sheets seem to be crossed by vital leaps that become more and more marked over time. In the early 1960s, the structure of the works becomes more dynamic with the emergence, among the layers of paper, of components such as photographs, letters and three-dimensional objects. This reference to everyday reality gives the Collages an energy of non-sense, which puts the works closer to the contemporary new-dada decontextualization of American Robert Rauschenberg.

The production alternates with large informal paintings, albeit with obvious differences: from dimensions to materials, from chromatic to spatial impact. But what most differentiates the paintings from the Collages is the presence in the latter of an ironic vein, light and subtle like a veil. A common characteristic of all is the fact that for years they have been hidden in the archives of the author and for this reason they are absolutely new to some.

The exhibition inaugurates in Palazzo Collicola on Saturday 14 December at 11.30 and will be visitable till Sunday 8 March 2020, from Friday to Sunday, on Thursday 26 December 2019 and on Monday 6 January 2020 from 10.30 to 13.00 and from 15.00 to 17.30.

Piero Raspi – Born on 12 February, 1926 in Spoleto. He starts his fortunate artistic career within post-Cubism and founds the Group of Spoleto in the early 1950s. In the second half of the 1950s the main reference becomes the informal sphere, from which he learns new expressive possibilities of the matter outside of any surviving figurative need. In 1957 he joins the artists gravitating around the gallery “L’Attico” in Rome, where he exhibits repeatedly. In 1958 he participates in the Venice Biennale, gathering international fame. In this period he is identified as one of the protagonist of materic informalism, akin to Burri and Tàpies. In the early 1960s he holds many personal and collective exhibitions in Italy, including the Venice Biennale and the Rome Quadriennale. Abroad he exhibits in London, Los Angeles, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Stuttgart, Paris, Brussels, Cologne Montreal, Madrid, Barcelona, Edinburgh, Chicago, Lucerne, Tel Aviv, Salzburg, Zurich and Tokyo. In 1967 he settles in Pennsylvania and starts confronting himself with Pop Art. In this period he paints a series of works that would eventually exhibit in Philadelphia and New York. In 1978, a new pictorial phase starts, marked by an unprecedented chromatism. With the beginning of the new millennium, in addition to the creation of monochromes, he embraces other forms of creative expression and makes use of new materials such as steel. In 2001 in Spoleto, at the Albornoz Palace, he realizes a wall sculpture in steel plates, where he transfers the abstract and refined architecture of the Collages made since the late 1950s. Starting from the second decade of the 2000s, he focuses on the critical revision and cataloging of his works, as well as on the restoration of some papers and Collages of the 1950s and 1960s.
