EXHIBITION | Late gothic enchantment. The recomposed triptych of the Master of the Straus Madonna @ Museo Diocesano
Sep 22 all-day

From June 15 to November 7, thanks to the precious collaboration of the Vatican Museums, the triptych composed of the Madonna Enthroned with Child and Angels, currently housed in the Diocesan Museum of Spoleto, and the side compartments with the depictions of Saint Paula of Rome and Saint Eustochio, which escaped the fury of the 1703 earthquake, will be reunited and will be visible for the first time.

The exhibition, entitled Late gothic enchantment. The recomposed triptych of the Master of the Straus Madonna, is curated by Adele Breda, referent of the Department for Byzantine-Medieval Art of the Vatican Museums, by Stefania Nardicchi, Curator of the Diocesan Museum of Spoleto, and by Anna Pizzamano, PhD student in “History and Cultural Heritage of the Church” at the Pontifical Gregorian University.

On the occasion of the recent restoration of the two side compartments preserved in the Vatican Collection, bearing the images of two little-known saints, Paola of Rome and Eustochio, mother and daughter who lived at the time of St. Jerome (late fourth century), their study was deepened and an attempt was made to find the lost central compartment. The searches led to the Diocesan Museum, where a fragmented table representing a Madonna in throne with the Child between two angels has been identified. The painting, even if missing the lower part, has been recognized as the central part of the triptych. The work adorned in origin the altar of the church of Saint Maria near the castle of Abeto di Preci, from which the name of Maria Santissima di Piè di Castello.

The Madonna di Spoleto was transferred to the Vatican Museums’ Office of Scientific Researches applied to Cultural Heritage, where the various components were thoroughly examined: the wooden essence, the pigments, the engravings and the punches confirmed its full compatibility. With the intention of deepening the study of a painter of very high quality who is not sufficiently known, a later work by the same master was also selected for comparison, the Madonna Enthroned with Child between Two Angels, today kept in the Museum of Sacred Art and Popular Religiousness “Beato Angelico” in Vicchio del Mugello.

There are several reasons that led to this choice. These polyptychs are in fact made by one of the most refined and sought-after Florentine workshops of the time, and used for the liturgical decoration of chapels and parishes in the rural areas of Umbria and Tuscany. The survival of the only table with the Madonna, both in the case of Abeto di Preci and in that of Vicchio, attests, moreover, a devotion never interrupted and an affective and plurisecular bond with the territory, that has resisted also to the dispersion of the side compartments. Thanks to this juxtaposition it is also possible to guess the original dimensions of the Madonna in Spoleto, seriously damaged in the earthquake of 1703.

These works represent two different moments of the stylistic path of the Master of the Straus Madonna, active in Florence between 1385 and 1415, a painter who, from an initial neo-Giottism, slowly opened to the new international style, welcoming in part the style of Lorenzo Monaco and Gherardo Starnina, but always maintaining his original archaic style.

EXHIBITIONS AT PALAZZO COLLICOLA @ Palazzo Collicola
Sep 22 all-day

Artistic director Marco Tonelli proposes a journey through experimentation, writing, drawing and painting

Opening to the public on 26 June. Exhibitions will be open until 26 September

There will be four exhibitions organised by the City of Spoleto at Palazzo Collicola on the occasion of the 64th Festival Of 2 Worlds. Under the direction of Marco Tonelli, the artistic proposals of this summer 2021 (the opening is scheduled for 26 June and will be open until 26 September) will be a journey between experimentation, writing, drawings and painting, within different conceptual paths developed, in some cases, in periods apparently distant and ideally distant.   Giuseppe Penone: Disegni Curated by Marco Tonelli, the exhibition, conceived together with the artist, will be set up in the inner rooms of the Modern Art Gallery. Promoted by the Festival Of Two Worlds, it is ideally inserted in the tradition of exhibitions of drawings by great modern and contemporary artists, such as MoMA’s American Drawings (1961), Modern Italian Drawings (1962), Willem de Kooning: drawings (1969), James Ensor. Drawings and etchings (1981), Balthus: drawings and watercolours (1982), which were held in Spoleto as part of the Festival. An exhibition of this kind, devoted exclusively to drawings, is the first to be held by Penone in Italy, following the one held at the Drawing Center in New York in 2007.
    Work in Progress. Works from the Modern Art Gallery of Palazzo Collicola and the Marignoli Foundation of Montecorona. Curated by Michele Drascek, Duccio K. Marignoli, Marco Tonelli, two art collections in Spoleto, that of the Modern Art Gallery of Palazzo Collicola and that of the Marignoli Foundation of Montecorona, have sought to compare, creating a seamless historical line, from the 16th century to contemporary times, a particular series of works: sketches, models, preparatory sketches, studies. A total of 70 works will be exhibited, including drawings, paintings, sculptures, wooden maquettes and small models, some of which have been exceptionally recovered from the deposits of Palazzo Collicola or are being shown to the public for the first time from the collection preserved at Palazzo Marignoli.
    Stefano Di Stasio: Astanze Curated by Fabio Sargentini and Marco Tonelli, nine large paintings will be presented in as many rooms on the museum’s exhibition floor, creating a series of rooms, or stations, immersed in darkness and cut out of the dark by a single point of light, which reveals monumental figures of mysterious solitary men charged with symbolic connotations, painted between 1994 and 2011 and coming from a single thematic nucleus: that of the Galleria dell’Attico in Rome, where the artist has held solo and group exhibitions since 1994.
    Josè Angelino: Resistenze Curated by Davide Silvioli, this is a site-specific project by Josè Angelino in collaboration with the Fondazione Carla Fendi and Mahler & LeWitt Studios. All the works on show, which will be located in different areas of Palazzo Collicola, are courtesy of Galleria Alessandra Bonomo. The event is the first appointment of a cycle of exhibitions entitled Collicola Project Room(s), curated by Davide Silvioli and dedicated to emerging artists.

Under the direction of Marco Tonelli, the artistic proposals of this summer 2021 (the opening is scheduled for 26 June and will be open until 26 September) will be a journey between experimentation, writing, drawings and painting, within different conceptual paths developed, in some cases, in periods apparently distant and ideally distant.   Giuseppe Penone: Disegni Curated by Marco Tonelli, the exhibition, conceived together with the artist, will be set up in the inner rooms of the Modern Art Gallery. Promoted by the Festival Of Two Worlds, it is ideally inserted in the tradition of exhibitions of drawings by great modern and contemporary artists, such as MoMA’s American Drawings (1961), Modern Italian Drawings (1962), Willem de Kooning: drawings (1969), James Ensor. Drawings and etchings (1981), Balthus: drawings and watercolours (1982), which were held in Spoleto as part of the Festival. An exhibition of this kind, devoted exclusively to drawings, is the first to be held by Penone in Italy, following the one held at the Drawing Center in New York in 2007.
    Work in Progress. Works from the Modern Art Gallery of Palazzo Collicola and the Marignoli Foundation of Montecorona. Curated by Michele Drascek, Duccio K. Marignoli, Marco Tonelli, two art collections in Spoleto, that of the Modern Art Gallery of Palazzo Collicola and that of the Marignoli Foundation of Montecorona, have sought to compare, creating a seamless historical line, from the 16th century to contemporary times, a particular series of works: sketches, models, preparatory sketches, studies. A total of 70 works will be exhibited, including drawings, paintings, sculptures, wooden maquettes and small models, some of which have been exceptionally recovered from the deposits of Palazzo Collicola or are being shown to the public for the first time from the collection preserved at Palazzo Marignoli.
    Stefano Di Stasio: Astanze Curated by Fabio Sargentini and Marco Tonelli, nine large paintings will be presented in as many rooms on the museum’s exhibition floor, creating a series of rooms, or stations, immersed in darkness and cut out of the dark by a single point of light, which reveals monumental figures of mysterious solitary men charged with symbolic connotations, painted between 1994 and 2011 and coming from a single thematic nucleus: that of the Galleria dell’Attico in Rome, where the artist has held solo and group exhibitions since 1994.
    Josè Angelino: Resistenze Curated by Davide Silvioli, this is a site-specific project by Josè Angelino in collaboration with the Fondazione Carla Fendi and Mahler & LeWitt Studios. All the works on show, which will be located in different areas of Palazzo Collicola, are courtesy of Galleria Alessandra Bonomo. The event is the first appointment of a cycle of exhibitions entitled Collicola Project Room(s), curated by Davide Silvioli and dedicated to emerging artists.

EXHIBITION | Late gothic enchantment. The recomposed triptych of the Master of the Straus Madonna @ Museo Diocesano
Sep 25 all-day

From June 15 to November 7, thanks to the precious collaboration of the Vatican Museums, the triptych composed of the Madonna Enthroned with Child and Angels, currently housed in the Diocesan Museum of Spoleto, and the side compartments with the depictions of Saint Paula of Rome and Saint Eustochio, which escaped the fury of the 1703 earthquake, will be reunited and will be visible for the first time.

The exhibition, entitled Late gothic enchantment. The recomposed triptych of the Master of the Straus Madonna, is curated by Adele Breda, referent of the Department for Byzantine-Medieval Art of the Vatican Museums, by Stefania Nardicchi, Curator of the Diocesan Museum of Spoleto, and by Anna Pizzamano, PhD student in “History and Cultural Heritage of the Church” at the Pontifical Gregorian University.

On the occasion of the recent restoration of the two side compartments preserved in the Vatican Collection, bearing the images of two little-known saints, Paola of Rome and Eustochio, mother and daughter who lived at the time of St. Jerome (late fourth century), their study was deepened and an attempt was made to find the lost central compartment. The searches led to the Diocesan Museum, where a fragmented table representing a Madonna in throne with the Child between two angels has been identified. The painting, even if missing the lower part, has been recognized as the central part of the triptych. The work adorned in origin the altar of the church of Saint Maria near the castle of Abeto di Preci, from which the name of Maria Santissima di Piè di Castello.

The Madonna di Spoleto was transferred to the Vatican Museums’ Office of Scientific Researches applied to Cultural Heritage, where the various components were thoroughly examined: the wooden essence, the pigments, the engravings and the punches confirmed its full compatibility. With the intention of deepening the study of a painter of very high quality who is not sufficiently known, a later work by the same master was also selected for comparison, the Madonna Enthroned with Child between Two Angels, today kept in the Museum of Sacred Art and Popular Religiousness “Beato Angelico” in Vicchio del Mugello.

There are several reasons that led to this choice. These polyptychs are in fact made by one of the most refined and sought-after Florentine workshops of the time, and used for the liturgical decoration of chapels and parishes in the rural areas of Umbria and Tuscany. The survival of the only table with the Madonna, both in the case of Abeto di Preci and in that of Vicchio, attests, moreover, a devotion never interrupted and an affective and plurisecular bond with the territory, that has resisted also to the dispersion of the side compartments. Thanks to this juxtaposition it is also possible to guess the original dimensions of the Madonna in Spoleto, seriously damaged in the earthquake of 1703.

These works represent two different moments of the stylistic path of the Master of the Straus Madonna, active in Florence between 1385 and 1415, a painter who, from an initial neo-Giottism, slowly opened to the new international style, welcoming in part the style of Lorenzo Monaco and Gherardo Starnina, but always maintaining his original archaic style.

EUROPEAN HERITAGE DAYS | “Imperator. Memoirs of Hadrian and other Caesars” by and with Stefano de Majo at the Roman Theatre @ Teatro Romano di Spoleto
Sep 25 @ 18:30

Roman Theatre of Spoleto
IMPERATOR. MEMOIRS OF HADRIAN AND OTHER CAESARS
by and with Stefano de Majo

On the occasion of the European Heritage Days, Saturday 25 September, at 6.30 p.m., the Roman Theatre in Spoleto will be staging Imperator. Memoirs of Hadrian and other Caesars by and with Stefano de Majo.

In the text, taken from Marguerite Yourcenar’s masterpiece, there are references to Shakespeare and Camus. The philosopher emperor Hadrian will tell about himself and his world as a man of today, stripping himself of his imperial robes and, despite two thousand years of history behind him, he will also end up talking about us.

The show, which is also part of the Menotti Art Festival programme, will combine theatre with dance and classical music with Roman dancer Simone Martinelli and live music by Emanuela Boccacani. The shadows of the memories evoked will be interpreted by Katia Scimiterna, Maela Pezza, Martina Ceccaroni and Matilde Poscia from Spoleto.

The dancers of the Team Dance school will perform choreographies by Carla Binaglia.
The sound and lighting service is provided by Marco and Clarissa Giamminonni and the costumes are by the “Sandro Pertini” professional institute in Terni.

Tickets are on sale in advance at Box 25 in Piazza Garibaldi 25, Spoleto, and at New Simphony in Galleria del Corso, Terni, and can also be purchased on the day of the performance.

The event is promoted by the Ministry of Culture, by the Direzione Musei della Regione Umbria and by the Pro Loco di Monteluco di Spoleto, with the contribution of the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Spoleto. The Green Pass is required for admission.

UMBRIA GREEN FESTIVAL – “O tu ch’onori scienzia e arte. Science and Nature in Dante” @ Teatro Nuovo Gian Carlo Menotti
Sep 25 @ 21:30
<!--:it-->UMBRIA GREEN FESTIVAL - "O tu ch'onori scienzia e arte. La Scienza e la Natura in Dante"<!--:--><!--:en-->UMBRIA GREEN FESTIVAL - "O tu ch'onori scienzia e arte. Science and Nature in Dante"<!--:--> @ Teatro Nuovo Gian Carlo Menotti

Saturday, September 25, 9.30 pm
UMBRIA GREEN FESTIVAL – O tu ch’onori scienzia e arte. Science and Nature in Dante
With Valerio Rossi Albertini
Teatro Nuovo Gian Carlo Menotti

Valerio Rossi Albertini, physicist-chemist, first researcher at the National Research Council, professor of Science Dissemination at the University of Rome 2 and television popularizer. For the first time he will also be the actor, author and director of a show conceived for Umbria Green Festival, focusing on Dante and his relationship with Science and Nature. Through films, declamation of verses, empirical demonstrations, Albertini will make us know all the scientific aspects within the Divine Comedy through a recital/reading from the work of the”Sommo Poeta”. The show will be entitled: O tu ch’onori scienzia e arte (O thou, who every art and science valuest!).

Dante had studied in depth the science of his time and wrote the Convivio, the first treatise of scientific divulgation in the vernacular language, the same language of the Comedy, just to educate those who had not had the opportunity to study scientific disciplines. With the same spirit, Dante inserts in the Divine Comedy solid and coherent models of astronomy and geodesy, believing that high poetry can never be separated from the knowledge of the world. In fact, when he addresses his teacher Virgil in the presence of the Great Spirits, he attests to his scientific and poetic merits: “O thou, who every art and science valu’st” Inf. IV, 73.

With the use of mechanical and audiovisual models, introduced by readings of passages from the Divine Comedy, then paraphrased to fully grasp the meaning, the show / conference will ideally lead the public through the three realms of the Underworld, with explanations, anecdotes, paradoxes and references to the following ages, that only a universal genius like Dante can inspire at a distance of seven centuries after his death.

The event was organized with the support of funds “POR FESR Umbria 2014-2020 – Az. 3.2.1 – Public Notice for participation in Live Shows Project”.

EXHIBITION | Late gothic enchantment. The recomposed triptych of the Master of the Straus Madonna @ Museo Diocesano
Sep 26 all-day

From June 15 to November 7, thanks to the precious collaboration of the Vatican Museums, the triptych composed of the Madonna Enthroned with Child and Angels, currently housed in the Diocesan Museum of Spoleto, and the side compartments with the depictions of Saint Paula of Rome and Saint Eustochio, which escaped the fury of the 1703 earthquake, will be reunited and will be visible for the first time.

The exhibition, entitled Late gothic enchantment. The recomposed triptych of the Master of the Straus Madonna, is curated by Adele Breda, referent of the Department for Byzantine-Medieval Art of the Vatican Museums, by Stefania Nardicchi, Curator of the Diocesan Museum of Spoleto, and by Anna Pizzamano, PhD student in “History and Cultural Heritage of the Church” at the Pontifical Gregorian University.

On the occasion of the recent restoration of the two side compartments preserved in the Vatican Collection, bearing the images of two little-known saints, Paola of Rome and Eustochio, mother and daughter who lived at the time of St. Jerome (late fourth century), their study was deepened and an attempt was made to find the lost central compartment. The searches led to the Diocesan Museum, where a fragmented table representing a Madonna in throne with the Child between two angels has been identified. The painting, even if missing the lower part, has been recognized as the central part of the triptych. The work adorned in origin the altar of the church of Saint Maria near the castle of Abeto di Preci, from which the name of Maria Santissima di Piè di Castello.

The Madonna di Spoleto was transferred to the Vatican Museums’ Office of Scientific Researches applied to Cultural Heritage, where the various components were thoroughly examined: the wooden essence, the pigments, the engravings and the punches confirmed its full compatibility. With the intention of deepening the study of a painter of very high quality who is not sufficiently known, a later work by the same master was also selected for comparison, the Madonna Enthroned with Child between Two Angels, today kept in the Museum of Sacred Art and Popular Religiousness “Beato Angelico” in Vicchio del Mugello.

There are several reasons that led to this choice. These polyptychs are in fact made by one of the most refined and sought-after Florentine workshops of the time, and used for the liturgical decoration of chapels and parishes in the rural areas of Umbria and Tuscany. The survival of the only table with the Madonna, both in the case of Abeto di Preci and in that of Vicchio, attests, moreover, a devotion never interrupted and an affective and plurisecular bond with the territory, that has resisted also to the dispersion of the side compartments. Thanks to this juxtaposition it is also possible to guess the original dimensions of the Madonna in Spoleto, seriously damaged in the earthquake of 1703.

These works represent two different moments of the stylistic path of the Master of the Straus Madonna, active in Florence between 1385 and 1415, a painter who, from an initial neo-Giottism, slowly opened to the new international style, welcoming in part the style of Lorenzo Monaco and Gherardo Starnina, but always maintaining his original archaic style.

EXHIBITIONS AT PALAZZO COLLICOLA @ Palazzo Collicola
Sep 26 all-day

Artistic director Marco Tonelli proposes a journey through experimentation, writing, drawing and painting

Opening to the public on 26 June. Exhibitions will be open until 26 September

There will be four exhibitions organised by the City of Spoleto at Palazzo Collicola on the occasion of the 64th Festival Of 2 Worlds. Under the direction of Marco Tonelli, the artistic proposals of this summer 2021 (the opening is scheduled for 26 June and will be open until 26 September) will be a journey between experimentation, writing, drawings and painting, within different conceptual paths developed, in some cases, in periods apparently distant and ideally distant.   Giuseppe Penone: Disegni Curated by Marco Tonelli, the exhibition, conceived together with the artist, will be set up in the inner rooms of the Modern Art Gallery. Promoted by the Festival Of Two Worlds, it is ideally inserted in the tradition of exhibitions of drawings by great modern and contemporary artists, such as MoMA’s American Drawings (1961), Modern Italian Drawings (1962), Willem de Kooning: drawings (1969), James Ensor. Drawings and etchings (1981), Balthus: drawings and watercolours (1982), which were held in Spoleto as part of the Festival. An exhibition of this kind, devoted exclusively to drawings, is the first to be held by Penone in Italy, following the one held at the Drawing Center in New York in 2007.
    Work in Progress. Works from the Modern Art Gallery of Palazzo Collicola and the Marignoli Foundation of Montecorona. Curated by Michele Drascek, Duccio K. Marignoli, Marco Tonelli, two art collections in Spoleto, that of the Modern Art Gallery of Palazzo Collicola and that of the Marignoli Foundation of Montecorona, have sought to compare, creating a seamless historical line, from the 16th century to contemporary times, a particular series of works: sketches, models, preparatory sketches, studies. A total of 70 works will be exhibited, including drawings, paintings, sculptures, wooden maquettes and small models, some of which have been exceptionally recovered from the deposits of Palazzo Collicola or are being shown to the public for the first time from the collection preserved at Palazzo Marignoli.
    Stefano Di Stasio: Astanze Curated by Fabio Sargentini and Marco Tonelli, nine large paintings will be presented in as many rooms on the museum’s exhibition floor, creating a series of rooms, or stations, immersed in darkness and cut out of the dark by a single point of light, which reveals monumental figures of mysterious solitary men charged with symbolic connotations, painted between 1994 and 2011 and coming from a single thematic nucleus: that of the Galleria dell’Attico in Rome, where the artist has held solo and group exhibitions since 1994.
    Josè Angelino: Resistenze Curated by Davide Silvioli, this is a site-specific project by Josè Angelino in collaboration with the Fondazione Carla Fendi and Mahler & LeWitt Studios. All the works on show, which will be located in different areas of Palazzo Collicola, are courtesy of Galleria Alessandra Bonomo. The event is the first appointment of a cycle of exhibitions entitled Collicola Project Room(s), curated by Davide Silvioli and dedicated to emerging artists.
