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.”

OUVERTURES DES SAPONETTES
Studio TA-DAA!

by and with Michele Cafaggi
2016 Franco Enriquez prize winner
directed by Davide Fossati

An eccentric conductor will take you into the fragile and round world of soap bubbles for a “concert” where the unexpected is always around the corner: strange instruments create giant, bouncing, strolling and clustering bubbles! A visual tale without a word that draws inspiration from the atmosphere of circus and variety, a magical show of clowning, pantomime and music that, born for children, ends up enchanting the audience of any age.

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.”

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.
