from Saturday 16 December
Opening h 14.30 – Downtown Spoleto
Collicola onthewall presents
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.”
The LXVI Week of Study on the Early Middle Ages, organized by CISAM, will be held from 5 to 11 April 2018 at Albornoz Palace Hotel. This year’s theme will be Migration in the Early Middle Ages.
The lessons will focus in particular on three themes related to migration: Ethno-anthropological Aspects, Migratory Processes and Transplantations and Sedimentations as a Result of Migrations that characterized the period under study.
Spoleto’s Fondazione Centro Italiano Centro di Studi sull’Alto Medioevo is a noble cultural institution that prints books on the Middle Ages and it is considered a solid point of reference in worldwide medieval research providing, through the Week of Study, an opportunity for academics and enthusiasts to meet and debate at the highest level.
Saturday 21 April at 11, the Rocca Albornoz in Spoleto will host a conference on Wine, oil, and art, heritage of the Italian culture. Mayor Maria Elena Bececco will provide the institutional greetings. Featured speakers include Paolo Braconi of the Università di Perugia, Paolo Baioletti of Icqrf, and consultant Ilaria Capaccioni.
Moderator: Filippo Benedetti Valentini of Sapere Food.
