Many exhibitions are also on display, such as the ones in Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive, Masterpieces of the 14th century at Rocca Albornoz, Diocesan Museum and Basilica of S. Eufemia, the one dedicated to the Festival of 1959 at the State Archives of Spoleto, Giacomo Ramaccini’s installation, Deposito d’autore at Casa Menotti and Figurazioni Musicali at the Galleria d’Arte e Tessuti.

Giancarlo Giannini opens the programme – Friday, July 20 (21.15) at the Roman Theatre – with the recital LE PAROLE NOTE, a meeting between literature and music that sees on stage, along with the great actor, the Marco Zurzolo Quartet with accordionist Luciano Biondini as special guest. An event by I Love Spoleto.

On Saturday, July 21 (h. 21.15) the dance show MEDITERRANEA will be staged at the Roman Theatre. A choreographic circumnavigation through the music of cultures overlooking the Mediterranean. A show that was born in 1993 for the Balletto di Toscana and that immediately got a resounding success. For its 15th anniversary, in 2008, he was re-produced for the Teatro alla Scala company, marking Mauro Bigonzetti’s first Scala debut. Mediterranea is a production by Daniele Cipriani. An event by I Love Spoleto.

The Kataklò Athletic Dance Theatre will perform in the splendid setting of the Roman Theatre on Friday, July 27 at 21.15 with READY, a show specially designed by Giulia Staccioli, with spectacular choreographies taken from Eureka (2016), Puzzle (2012) and Play (2008), maintaining the dynamic, athletic, poetic and original spirit that has made the Kataklò the most loved and requested Italian company of athletic theater in the world. An event by I Love Spoleto.

Another important dance appointment will take place on Saturday, July 28 at 21.00, still at the Roman Theatre: the Great International Dance Gala tribute to Rudolf Nureyev, by Daniele Cipriani. Eighty years after its birth and twenty-five years after his death, the show is a journey through the most significant stages of the extraordinary artist’s career. The refined multimedia projections by video artist Massimiliano Siccardi will be accompanied, at the beginning, by a rare recording directed by Nureyev. An event by I Love Spoleto.

Double appointment – Friday 10th and Saturday 11th August ( Teatro Caio Melisso, h. 18.00) – with the Teatro Lirico Sperimentale and EINE KLEINE MUSIK 2018: a musical tribute to LA FRANCE with pieces by Erik Satie, Gabriel Fauré and Francis Poulenc. Afterwards, BA-TA-CLAN, the famous opera that marked the first great success of Jacques Offenbach, based on Ludovic Halévy’s libretto. Direction and staging by Giorgio Bongiovanni and Lisa Nava with the Soloists of Spoleto’s Teatro Lirico Sperimentale “A. Belli”.

Saturday August 18, at the Complesso Monumentale di San Nicolò (h. 21.30), David Riondino will be the protagonist of IL DIO DENARO (Non avrai altro Dio all’infuori di me) e altre letture (Italian for THE MONEY GOD – Thou shalt have no other gods before me – and other readings).
It is a special event included in the Libro d’Ingresso series, that marks a further step in the artistic collaboration between David Riondino and musician Fabrizio De Rossi Re.

Two concerts at dawn are organized by Umbria Ensemble chamber group, both of which will be held at the Rocca Albornoziana. The first one will take place on Saturday 11 August at 6.10, a tribute to Leonard Bernstein on the occasion of the hundredth anniversary of the great composer’s birth. The second one, Da Vivaldi ai Beatles, on Saturday 25 August at 6.25, will be a musical journey from Vivaldi to Boccherini, passing through some Beatles’ repertoire, reinterpreted by guitarist Leo Brouwer.

On Friday, August 31 at 21.30, Italian singer Caparezza will perform at the Municipal Stadium, with its Prisoner 709 Tour. The Tour promotes the homonymous seventh studio album by the brilliant artist, songwriter and rapper whose most peculiar expressive feature is stylistic contamination and sound eclecticism. An event by I Love Spoleto.

The full programme of The Four Seasons – Spoleto’s Summer includes many other events organized in collaboration with various cultural associations such as the recitals NOTE LETTERE curated by ‘G. Carducci’ and ‘G. Carandente’ libraries in collaboration with Teatro Lirico Sperimentale di Spoleto ‘A.

The director and journalist Stefano Liberti meets the audience of Spoleto for the presentation of the documentary SOYALISM.

The evening is a Visioni d’Autore special event, in collaboration with Coworking Spoleto

THE DOCUMENTARY
In an increasingly overpopulated world, in the grip of climate change, control of food production has become a huge business for a handful of a few giant companies. Following the pork production chain, from China to Brazil via the United States and Mozambique, the documentary describes the enormous movement of power concentration in the hands of these companies, which is taking hundreds of thousands of small producers out of business and permanently transforming entire landscapes. From intensive mega-breeding in China to the Amazon rainforest threatened by soybean crops developed to feed animals confined to sheds on the other side of the world, this process is undermining the social and environmental balances of the planet.
The film had its world premiere on November 18, 2018 at the International documentary film festival in Amsterdam.

STEFANO LIBERTI
Stefano Liberti is an Italian journalist and director. He directed the documentary “L’inferno dei bimbi stregoni” The hell of witch children, winner of L’Anello Debole award in 2010. He wrote “I signori del cibo. Viaggio nell’industria alimentare che sta distruggendo il pianeta” The Lords of food. A journey into the food industry that is destroying the planet (Minimum fax 2016).

Visioni d’Autore is organized by the City of Spoleto, MAIA Cultural Association and Cinéma Sala Pegasus.

Jun 25 – Jul 11 all-day
<!--:it-->64° FESTIVAL DEI DUE MONDI<!--:--><!--:en-->64th FESTIVAL OF TWO WORLDS<!--:--> @ Spoleto

64° Festival of Two Worlds
from June 25th to July 11th 2021
www.festivaldispoleto.com

From www.festivaldispoleto.com:

The sixty-fourth edition of the Spoleto Festival dei Due Mondi, the first programmed by artistic director Monique Veaute, opens on Friday 25 June 2021. Founded by Gian Carlo Menotti in 1958, Italy’s oldest performing arts festival once again transforms the city of Spoleto into a stage: from 25 June to 11 July, 60 performances, all Italian premieres, feature more than 500 artists from 13 countries in 15 venues, with some of the world’s best artists and companies offering an uninterrupted flow of music, opera, dance, theatre, allowing audiences to discover the unexpected.

Performances, discussions with artists, collateral events and debates shine a light on contemporary society, illuminating its diversity and complexity. This year at Spoleto, the first edition of Rai’s Festival per il sociale places themes including environmental and economic sustainability, social cohesion and inclusion, the role of women, the new generations and the value of memory at the heart of the discussion.

Dante, Stravinskij, Strehler, Pina Bausch and some of the great classics of the theatre repertoire form a bridge between the past and the future, projected forwards in time thanks to the interpretations of great artists and companies from Iván Fisher to Antonio Pappano, from the Budapest Festival Orchestra to the Accademia di Santa Cecilia, from Mourad Merzouki to Angelin Preljocaj, from Francesco Tristano to Brad Mehldau, from Flora Détraz to Jonas&Lander, from Liv Ferracchiati to Lucien Øyen, from Romeo Castellucci to Robert Lepage to Lucia Ronchetti, and by participants in residencies run by La MaMa Spoleto Open and the Accademia Silvio d’Amico.

There are exhibitions at Palazzo Collicola, while discussions organized by Fondazione Carla Fendi, concerts at the Casa Menotti and numerous collateral events introduce visitors to some of the most beautiful hidden corners of this city.

The 64th edition of the Festival of Two Worlds welcomes live audiences in absolute security. While the health situation means there are restrictions on the number of available tickets, a calendar of online appointments will be streamed via the Digital Stage so that those who cannot attend physically can still take part. A festival which brings people together, creating new opportunities for dialogue and reflection.
