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.

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 “.

LECTURAE DANTIS 2017 @ Biblioteca Comunale "G. Carducci"

<!--:it-->LECTURAE DANTIS 2017 <!--:--><!--:en-->LECTURAE DANTIS 2017 <!--:--> @ Biblioteca Comunale "G. Carducci" | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

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.

Il Libro d’Ingresso – shows and books @ Sala Pegasus
Nov 10 @ 21:30

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.

LECTURAE DANTIS 2017 @ Biblioteca Comunale "G. Carducci"

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.

LECTURAE DANTIS 2017 @ Biblioteca Comunale "G. Carducci"
Mar 30 @ 17:00
<!--:it-->LECTURAE DANTIS 2017 <!--:--><!--:en-->LECTURAE DANTIS 2017 <!--:--> @ Biblioteca Comunale "G. Carducci" | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

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.

EXHIBITION | Gianni Asdrubali: Surfing With The Alien @ Palazzo Collicola
Jun 27 – Sep 13 all-day
<!--:it-->MOSTRA | Surfing with the Alien di Gianni Asdrubali<!--:--><!--:en-->EXHIBITION | Gianni Asdrubali: Surfing With The Alien<!--:--> @ Palazzo Collicola

Gianni Asdrubali: Surfing with the Alien
curated by Marco Tonelli and Bruno Corà
Palazzo Collicola
Inauguration: Saturday 27 June 2020 – h 11.00

Almost twenty-five years later, Gianni Asdrubali (Tuscania, 1955) is again a protagonist in Spoleto, with a solo exhibition that takes stock of the work of one of the most interesting contemporary Italian painters, who established himself on the national and international scene as an innovator of abstract, aniconic and gestural research since the 1980s.

The exhibition, curated by Marco Tonelli (Director of Palazzo Collicola) and Bruno Corà (President of the Foundation Palazzo Albizzini Collezione Burri and member of Palazzo Collicola’s Scientific Committee), is a retrospective of his work through the most representative and enigmatic as well as evocative cycles of paintings such as Aggroblanda, Trigombo, Malumazac, Zeimekke, Azota, Stoide, Azotrumbo, Tromboloide.

Scheduled for 21 March, suspended due to the Covid-19 lockdown, the exhibition vibrantly announces the reopening of Palazzo Collicola and its activities, albeit with many changes in programming due to the pandemic.

The exhibition’s title Surfing with the Alien (one of the most famous tracks by American virtuoso and brilliant guitarist Joe Satriani), means to communicate the unstable balance, dizzy leaps and acrobatics in the void of a dynamic painting that looks like fluctuating in the dimensions of space, each time generating new plots and surprising trajectories.

As Asdrubali himself once wrote: “Surfing is an action generated by absence. But this surfing is not smooth, it is contrastingly bumping, it is running away, going away, to then return and bang into its own beginning, but every time it returns and bumps into itself it deforms and opens the structure, transforming the ‘figure’ of the image, which is never the same. The interaction is the figure of this struggle, of this contrast between surfing and the alien”.

Asdrubali’s figure is an extreme one, an artist whom critic Filiberto Menna listed in the Astrazione povera group, Flavio Caroli in that of Magico primario, and that Giovanni Carandente invited at the Venice Biennale in 1988.

At Palazzo Collicola, the exhibition unfolds through the rooms at the ground floor, which once housed the permanent collection of the Modern Art Gallery (since 2019 rearranged at the museum’s second floor), where two other works by Asdrubali are kept, including a spectacular Tromboloide from 1992. An interactive project, ZUMBER, by the ORAMIDE research group, has been realized on this work and will soon be available on the museum’s website  http://www.palazzocollicola.it

The exhibition will be open to the public from 27 June to 13 September 2020, it has been realized with the collaboration of Galleria Giraldi, Galleria A Arte Invernizzi, Galleria Matteo Lampertico, Galleria Consorti. During the exhibition, a catalogue with texts by Marco Tonelli, Bruno Corà and an interview with the artist Davide Silvioli will be published.
