THE TOY SHOP
CREST – Coop. teatrale

with Delia De Marco, Valentina Elia, Giuseppe Marzio
text and direction Sandra Novellino and Delia De Marco

The story happens in a toy shop that, as in children’s imagination, come alive and come to life. And, just like it happens in real life, there is a more beautiful doll, an envious one, a teddy bear who falls in love, a jealous soldier, and carousels and little cars that always turn around! A parallel world that helps children experience emotions, switching from joy to disappointment, from melancholy to happiness, from love to resentment. The show is aimed at younger children; it is the result of many years of experience in kindergartens, looking for the most effective theatrical language to address to such a particular and demanding audience.

THE ISLAND OF NEVERLAND… IS NOW A FOREVERLAND
Ass. Culturale Tieffeu

by and with Francesca Prete and Riccardo Toccacielo
direction, sets and puppets by Mario Mirabassi

This is a true, or almost true, story that could take place anywhere, in any city of the world. It is the story of a group of young people and of an abandoned and uncultivated green space, the only one left among buildings and concrete, the last meeting point of the children of the district. But one day that space is taken away from them to build a large gambling center owned by the local boss who dominates the entire city. From here, the story develops with their parents and LIBERA association coming to support the children’s action.

THE MAGNIFICENT IMPOSTOR
Teatro Laboratorio Brescia

by and with Alessandra Domeneghini
directed by Sergio Mascherpa

“What would you have done in my place?” This is the question that Giorgio Perlasca addresses to his interlocutor, to raise many other questions… Would I be able to oppose the horrible facts I am witnessing? Would I risk my life to save unknown people? Would I be able to draw on that part of myself that tries to fight injustice? It is precisely because of the many reflections that his story manages to generate that we want to talk about him again, about the “magnificent impostor”: and we would like to do so because the times we are living in are difficult times, and they often require us to appeal to the moral strength that we carry inside ourselves.

FIABA LUPA
Compagnia Anfiteatro

Sixth appointment with La Domenica dei Sogni: Sunday 10 February at 16.30 at the Teatro Nuovo Gian Carlo Menotti, Fiaba Lupa by Giampiero Pizzol, directed by Piero Lenardon of Compagnia Anfiteatro; the play is suitable for children aged 4 to 10.

The wolf is possibly the most ubiquitous character in traditional fairy tales, always playing the villain, scary yet somehow enthralling. A comic pair of two clowns is featured in Fiaba Lupa, Mr. Circo Lupesco and Miss Musica Fiaba (Bano Ferrari and Naya Dedemailan). They both yearn for achieving their dreams (becoming a tamer and performing a great trumpet solo live) yet none of them leaves room to the other one, and it’s only thanks to the help of Mr. Bella Idea that they finally settle their disputes and stage a play in which the wolf is the main character.

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. 

Opening times:
June-July: Fri-Sun 10.30-13.00 / 15.30-19,00
