An Instagram Day dedicated to contemporary art
Sunday, February 4, 2018.

For the whole day, a group of about 40 Instagramers from Umbria’s Igers Community will visit the city and its museums, taking photos and creating stories on Instagram, tagging specific locations and related pages.

The mission of Igersitalia and its local communities is to promote places and attractions through Instagram and other digital media.

The program of the day includes a morning visit to the Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive, where Instagramers will be guided to discover the museum’s collections and exhibition projects. Then they will visit the city freely and, in the afternoon, they will visit the exhibition LightQuake 2017 _ Black Light Art – The light that colors darkness at Rocca Albornoz, to discover and learn about this exciting temporary exhibition.

The photos taken during the day will then be published on the Community page and on the administrators’ personal pages.

Organization: Coop. Sistema Museo, Rocca Albornoz and National Museum of the Duchy of Spoleto, Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive and  Spoleto Municipality.

Psychiatric-Alcatraz – Circus-theatre, cabaret @ Campo Sportivo di San Nicolò - Via Pietro Falchi
Feb 4 @ 17:00
<!--: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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

La MaMa Experimental Theatre and Great Jones Repertory Company (New York)

Screening of the Documentary TIBET ’92, by Sergio Maturi @ Cinema Sala Frau
Feb 18 @ 21:00

Sunday 18 February at 21.00, the documentary “TIBET ’92” by Sergio Maturi, in collaboration with Paolo Vandone, will be screened at the Cinema Sala Frau.
The screening celebrates the 25th anniversary of the first Spoletan expedition to Mount Zeta 3 (6.270 m) among the Himalayan mountains.

The video will tell, through original images and memories of the protagonists, the story of that significant mountain expedition on the Himalayan chain. The film is dedicated to the alpine guide Tiziano Cantalamessa from Ascoli Piceno, a mountain climber who tragically died at the end of the 1990s during a securing operation on a road section, whose contribution was crucial for the success of the extra-European mountain adventure. The director of the film will be present.

A treasure chest of memories of today’s Spoleto to pass on to future generations: this is the “time capsule”, a box that will be placed under the floor of Piazza del Mercato, containing thoughts, objects, dreams and words telling our time and our city to the citizens of tomorrow.

The Time Capsule, created by Teknocar company, will be placed under the floor of the square on Saturday 24 February.

The two boxes will then be opened after exactly 100 years, on 24 February 2118. A sampietrino made of brass –  created by goldsmith Enrico Morbidoni – will mark the exact point where the capsule will be placed.

Spoleto’s citizens are invited to bring objects to Palazzo Mauri’s ground floor, where two boxes are ready to collect photos, postcards, letters, DVDs, CD-ROMs, USB flash drives etc. For those who wish, the object can also be signed, as a testimony for their loved ones. The aim is to give space to imagination and dreams, so that the story of our time can be as exhaustive as possible for those who will come after us.

The ceremony will take place at Piazza del Mercato, on Saturday 24 February 2018 at 16h.

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.

Welcome tasting with organic wine by Cantina Di Filippo
Entrance fee: € 10.00

Mosè Chiavoni (clarinet/soprano saxophone) and Luciano Biondini (accordeon), both Umbrian, present “Rosso”, a captivating journey through Klezmer music with original pieces characterized by a Central European sound. A musical idea, both distant from and close to them, and shared for a long time, which allows them to masterfully interact in a chamber music that resonates with improvisation as well as with echoes of different geographical origins. The duo plays with sound volumes and speed, without ever losing sight of music’s singability and rhythmic drive.
