F. Manara, C. Marini, Opera Celibe # and “Spoleto Contemporanea”, collective exhibition on artists living in Spoleto. Opening: Sat 7 Nov 2015, h 12.00

The Palazzo Collicola Visual Arts Winter Exhibitions open on Saturday 7 November at 12. The exhibitions will end on Sunday 22 May 2016.

Artistic director Gianluca Marziani chose Fausto Manara‘s “Sincronie”, Claudio Marini‘s “Fratelli di Sale”, the interactive audio installation “Deep Carpet” by Vincenzo Core at the Church of Santi Giovanni e Paolo and above all a collective exhibition titled “Spoleto contemporanea. Lo sapevate che la città è ricca di energie, idee e visioni?” (Did you know the city is so rich in energies, ideas and visions?) that aims at taking stock of present-day Spoleto, a look to the present to define the coordinates of what has been done in the last years by young and veteran artists, men and women, among those who have remained and those who have returned, including those from abroad who chose Spoleto to live in: American, European and also Italian artists, who came here for a while, for a long stay or forever. The Spoleto Contemporanea exhibition will be followed, on Friday 11th December at 17 in Palazzo Mauri, by a study day titled “CONTEMPORARY SPOLETO. Hypotheses for a Convention. Theses for a Dialogue” coordinated by Andrea Tomasini.

The other exhibitions include the artistic journey of psychiatrist Fausto Manara, author of a complex project between photography and electronic language. Through some forty works, you access his flooring digital universe, a parallel world in which technology becomes painting and confirms the conceptual value of technological tools. What hits you soon is the precious epidermic weaving of the works, and the classical originality of the aesthetic plant, an uncommon vision that mixes the key to the future with the archetypes of ancient memories.

“Fratelli di sale” by Claudio Marini “starts – clarifies Marziani – where you formulate the dimension of private grief in the visual epicentre in which Claudio remembers his late brother Giancarlo: the loss as the light tracing maps in tar black. The luminous areas look like sails or lungs, two forms that both need air, to inflate and live on. Wishing to share the weight of memory, the artist has put in leaflets with numbers related to personal matters, private moments that weld the collective brotherhood with a silent frequency of the Leopardian Infinite”.

At the church of Santi Giovanni e Paolo, composer Vincenzo Core has created an intereactive audio installation titled “Deep Carpet”. “Deep Carpet” is the second step of the cycle “Opera Celibe” freely adapted from the Duchampian concept of “macchina celibe” (unmarried machine), a cycle that aims at developing, among the frescoes at the former church of SS. Giovanni e Paolo, a research on sound and memory through a series of digital art installations, with contemporary tools and experimentations discussing with the history of the place.

Meeting on theatrical mediation @ Biblioteca Comunale G. Carducci
Mar 10 @ 17:00
<!--:it-->Incontro di mediazione teatrale<!--:--><!--:en-->Meeting on theatrical mediation <!--:--> @ Biblioteca Comunale G. Carducci | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

On the occasion of the 2015-2016 Prose Season’s last show “A cuore aperto”, scheduled for Friday 11 March at 21.00 at the Teatro Nuovo “Gian Carlo Menotti”, on Thursday 10 March at 17.00 at the Biblioteca Comunale “G. Carducci”, there will be a meeting on theatrical mediation led by mediators Erika Donini and Marco Schiavoni.

The dance, music and theatre play “A cuore aperto” by Compagnia Fabula Saltica is inspired by Shakespeare’s Sonnets. A mosaic of modalities reflecting directions, differences, and the references to the play. Each of the elements on stage is the spokesman of messages of freedom, destined to an audience attuned to love in its diverse expressions, a train of emotions, gazes, sequences, in which all chase each other, a confession of spirit that makes use of reasons and autobiographical clips, love turmoils and sparks, dreams, irritation and miseries, all addressed toward a transcendental dimension, a meditation on time, the transience of power and the misleadingness of life.

<!--:it-->GROUND LAYER - mostra di Francesco Irnem<!--:--><!--:en-->GROUND LAYER - exhibition by Francesco Irnem<!--:--> @ Casa Romana | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

GROUND LAYER, Francesco Irnem’s new project, is part of SATELLITE COLLICOLA. It has been conceived and created especially for the phisical, thematic and conceptual characteristics of Spoleto’s Roman House (Via di Visiale), with its exciting living spaces and its elegant mosaic floors.

On show from December 3rd until March 26, 2017.

Palazzo Collicola Winter Exhibitions @ Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive
Dec 3 2016 – Feb 12 2017 all-day
<!--:it-->Mostre invernali di Palazzo Collicola<!--:--><!--:en-->Palazzo Collicola Winter Exhibitions<!--:--> @ Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

The marks caused to Palazzo Collicola by the recent earthquake turn into art. PALAZZO COLLICOLA ARTI VISIVE‘s director Gianluca Marziani instructed the artist Vincenzo Pennacchi to create an installation that would give an aesthetic and symbolic value to the fissures produced by the earthquake on the museum’s walls. LA CREPA (The Crack), is one of the proposals of Palazzo Collicola’s winter exhibitions that will be on show until February 12.

An important donation of six sculptures from 1963 by BEVERLY PEPPER is one of the highlights of these winter exhibitions. The works, donated to the contemporary art museum by the artist, testifies of the long-term relationship between the sculptor and Umbrian territory. In 1962 Beverly Pepper was the only woman as well as one of the three American artists (together with David Smith and Alexander Calder) who were invited to take part in the exhibition SCULPTURES IN THE CITY, curated by Giovanni Carandente.

The first stage of CORTESIE PER GLI OSPITI (Courtesies to Guests) project will feature works by Giovanni Bonelli’ private gallery in Milan.  COURTESIES TO GUESTS is a new cycle dedicated to the world of private galleries with their stories, choices, passions and intuitions… a narrative and engaging journey, imagined as a cultural adventure. Giovanni Bonelli’s gallery, opened in 2012 in the “Isola” district, features works by emerging artists as well as established national and international artists (Maurizio Mochetti, Gianni Pettena, Daniel Spoerri).

Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive will also host  an ambitious project connecting FOOD and VISUAL ARTS: OBIC, originating from an idea by Anna Paola Lo Presti and Gianluca Marziani, is the title of a big book in which the featured art works explore the history of food, from its origins to primary ingredients, traditional dishes and innovations.

Three new sculptures by Spoleto’s artist Cristina MMR Bonucci will be presented within the cycle TERRITORIO Storie di artisti umbri (Territory, Stories of Umbrian artists). Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive’s exhibition pays tribute to Kengo Kuma’s architectural look, to the holistic spirit of its buildings. The works have been set up in the Piano Nobile’s main room.

GROUND LAYER, Francesco Irnem’s new project, is part of SATELLITE COLLICOLA. It has been conceived and created especially for the phisical, thematic and conceptual characteristics of Spoleto’s Roman House (Via di Visiale), with its exciting living spaces and its elegant mosaic floors.  (on show until March 26)

Finally, L’ECO DEL BOSCO (The Echo of the Wood) is Franco Marrocco’s exhibition. Marrocco’s artistic path seems to consciously aim at reducing the unnecessary. His artistic quality has an oriental profile and seems to be influenced by Japanese culture of ceramics, where the talent shows itself in the silence of the suspended step.

<!--:it-->"Cortesie per gli ospiti" a Palazzo Collicola: Galleria PACK<!--:--><!--:en-->"Cortesie per gli ospiti" at Palazzo Collicola: Galleria PACK<!--:--> @ Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

Palazzo Collicola Visual Arts presents the second stage of the project CORTESIE PER GLI OSPITI (Courtesies for the guests). It is a new cycle dedicated to the world of private gallerists, their stories, choices, passions and intuitions, a captivating, narrative trip, conceived as a cultural adventure, built as an inner retrospective.

After the exhibition with Giovanni Bonelli, it is now the turn of another Lombard gallerist, Giampaolo Abbondio, founder and owner of Galleria PACK in Milan. Curating the exhibiting space will be the figure of Luigi De Ambrogi, former avantgarde gallerist, Abbondio’s comrade in arms and privileged spectator of 15 years of exhibitions with 28 selected artists.

The opening is on Saturday 4 March; the exhibition wil go on till 12 May, 2017.

Destruction for Creation – SOICHIRO SHIMIZU at Palazzo Collicola @ Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive
Mar 4 – May 28 all-day
<!--:it-->Destruction for Creation - Mostra di SOICHIRO SHIMIZU a Palazzo Collicola<!--:--><!--:en-->Destruction for Creation - SOICHIRO SHIMIZU at Palazzo Collicola<!--:--> @ Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

RESIDENCE COLLICOLA is a format for young artists from abroad, who are called for their first exhibiting adventure in Italy; this time it is SOICHIRO SHIMIZU‘s turn, a Japanese artist who is crossing an ideal linguistic bridge between European values and Asian culture. Born and grown in Japan, Shimizu has been spending some time in Bangkok in the last years, where he conducts part of his major researches. This is his debut in Spoleto, after some trips to Umbria. DESTRUCTION FOR CREATION is a title that was envisaged after the August and October earthquakes in Central Italy, when Shimizu’s project was maturing in his Bangkok and Tokyo ateliers. Japan’s antiseismic culture is a an ethical and architectural pillar of Japanese civilization. Hence the idea that each destruction process becomes the prompt of creation that absorbs and levels all mistakes in a shared growth, turning yesterday’s false steps into tomorrow’s skilled pace, infusing the work with the value of experience and the sign of holistic rebirth.

Umbria and Japan are far from each other on a world scale, yet close for their inner geological features, subterranean dynamism, the deep silence of their natural environments, their meditative mysticism that finds its chamber of human wonders on the mountains.

The exhibition will go on till 28 May, 2017.

LAUDATO SI’ – 30 images to illustrate pope Francis’ Encyclical @ Rocca Albornoziana - Sala Eugenio IV

<!--:it-->LAUDATO SI - 30 immagini per illustrare l'Enciclica di Papa Francesco <!--:--><!--:en-->LAUDATO SI' - 30 images to illustrate pope Francis' Encyclical <!--:--> @ Rocca Albornoziana - Sala Eugenio IV | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

Photographic and video exhibition to illustrate pope Francis’ encyclical.  Thirty unpublished pictures, flanking as many documental excerpts, proposed by three young artists, Laura Filippucci, Francesca Marinangeli and Eleonora Dottorini. The exhibition ends on Sunday 16 July.

“Everything is connected”: pope Francis submits a thoughtful consideration on the urgency of funneling human development on sustainable tracks, criticising technocracy and proposing to pledge to new living styles. Everything starts from St. Francis’ words “Praise Be To Ye, Lord”, excellent example of the care of what is helpless and of an undisputable sense for ecology.

EXERCISES OF VILLAGE STORYTELLING IN UMBRIA – With Franco Arminio, poet and village storyteller @ Spoleto

<!--:it-->ESERCIZI DI PAESOLOGIA UMBRA - Con Franco Arminio, poeta e paesologo<!--:--><!--:en-->EXERCISES OF VILLAGE STORYTELLING IN UMBRIA - With Franco Arminio, poet and village storyteller <!--:--> @ Spoleto

EXERCISES OF VILLAGE STORYTELLING IN UMBRIA
With Franco Arminio, poet and village storyteller

The poet and “village storyteller” Franco Arminio will be the special guest of the two days entitled Exercises of Village Storytelling in Umbria, scheduled for Wednesday 20 and Thursday 21 September.

Defined as “the most followed Italian poet on the net”, Arminio will animate a series of events, in Spoleto and Sant’ Anatolia di Narco, focused on the relationship between poetry and society (There is a need for poetry, for the sacred that in recent years has been neglected) and on the need to recover spaces and regain possession of silence (Being revolutionary means taking away more than adding, slowing down more than accelerating; it means giving value to silence, light, fragility and sweetness), through activities dedicated to art, walks to discover reopened spaces and laboratories of “village storytelling”.

The event is organized by the Municipalities of Spoleto and Sant’ Anatolia di Narco, together with Cittadinanza Attiva, the Museum of hemp and the Municipal Library “G. Carducci “.

Opening h 14.30 – Downtown Spoleto

Collicola onthewall presents

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.”

Exhibitions at Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive: TORU HAMADA and ANGELO DOZIO @ Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive
Oct 27 2018 – Feb 24 2019 all-day
<!--:it-->Mostre di Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive: TORU HAMADA e ANGELO DOZIO<!--:--><!--:en-->Exhibitions at Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive: TORU HAMADA and ANGELO DOZIO<!--:--> @ Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive, from 27 October 2018 to 24 February 2019
Toru Hamada and Angelo Dozio
Opening: Saturday, October 27 at 12:00

TORU HAMADA – Anthological

The exhibition is curated by Gianluca Marziani and Italo Bergantini, and organized in collaboration with Romberg Contemporanea. After the placement in June, during the Festival dei Due Mondi, of one of his sculptures in Carrara marble in front of the Teatro Nuovo, today comes a large exhibition that tells us about his poetic and inspired painting … The life of Toru Hamada resembles the processing cycle of his art. First of all, one feels the atavistic bond with Japan, ascribable to a state of being that favours atmospheric silence, the firmness of the gaze, the discipline between body and spirit. At the same time, one feels the second homeland in Europe, first in Pietrasanta and then in the French countryside of Saint-Lubin-de-la-Haye, two places of solid culture that have welcomed both the man and the artist. Asia and Europe, two continents that today sum up in this Umbrian experience, in the heart of a Spoleto that has always conceived harmony between distant worlds.

ANGELO DOZIO – The discipline of constant doubt

Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive’s historical investigation continues among Italian artists who deserve a more exhaustive evaluation of their work over ten years. After Gianfranco Chiavacci, Gastone Biggi, Salvatore Emblema and Giuseppe Biasio, it is now the turn of Angelo Dozio with an anthological exhibition set up between the white rooms of the Piano Mostre and the noble furnishings of the Piano Nobile.
The exhibition is curated by Gianluca Marziani: “Reinterpreting the cycles of a long career, Angelo Dozio highlights a consistent value in the theme of transcendence. Technological intuition, the link with town planning and architecture, the implicit presence of sound, the clairvoyance of digital language are present, but in the end there’s a metaphysical suspension that emerges and surpasses the rest, an iconographic system that returns to the lines of the sacred cross, the curves of the Greek and Roman capitals, to the Florentine two-tone marble, to the plan of churches and basilicas, to the design of ideal cities… Dozio’s geometry goes beyond history and climbs into the values of the Absolute, where only painting can get, where design incorporates morality, where Beauty thinks beyond worldly contingencies.”
