EXHIBITION | Materia Oscura by Paolo Canevari @ Palazzo Collicola
Oct 15 all-day

curated by Marco Tonelli and Lorenzo Fiorucci
Open to the public from 4 July (15.30) to 13 September 2020
Appartamento Nobile, Palazzo Collicola – Spoleto

Project realised thanks to the Exhibit Program | Directorate General for Contemporary Creativity of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism

Opening hours:
October: from Thursday to Monday 10.00-13.00 / 15.30-19.00

Although all of Paolo Canevari‘s work can naturally be said to be “in black” and has always been conveying obscure contents, no one would ever think to relate it to disturbing facts of our existence exactly when we experience them. But art has a role in history, especially when it tells us something profound about the times we live in, like them or not; in this sense Canevari’s work is as relevant as ever.

The black hole of the pandemic that has shaken the world’s economy, affections, social relations, vision of public and private life, is in some ways an integral part of the tragic and recurring stories that characterize our global era: Canevari’s work lies exactly in this flow.

An articulated exhibition at Palazzo Collicola, in a path that winds from outside the museum with a real symbol (a sculpture unpublished and specially made for the occasion) of the freedoms suspended during months of lockdown around the world and of the many losses that have made the US the nation with the highest number of victims (100.000 at the time of writing): the Freedom of the Monuments of Memory cycle (the statue that illuminates the world, better known as the Statue of Liberty) landed on the external base of the sculpture in Piazza Collicola. While waiting to get up again in a definitive way, the work presents itself as a monument not to forget, to remember and to overcome a collective mourning and an evil that is not yet defeated.

A sign that contemporary art can and must at times confront us with the hardest and most tragic reality, communicating the violence of our times without rhetoric, without false embellishments, even at the cost of posing as an anxious, perturbing object.

Materia oscura (Dark Matter) unwinds then inside the Piano Nobile of Palazzo Collicola, following a path that sees the exhibition of more recent works (sculptures and drawings) from the Monumenti della memoria cycle created between 2016 and 2020 (Vasi, Altare, Tappeto, Landscape), historical sculptures such as Lupe Romane, ThANKS, Colossei and J.M.B. and a selection of video works from the 2000s inspired by the theme of fire such as Burning Skull, Burning Gun, Burning Colosseum, Burning Mein Kampf.

In the contrast between the magnificence of the Appartamento Nobile, the 18th century residence of the Collicola family, rich in antique paintings, gilded frames, frescoes and precious marbles, and Canevari’s “dirty”, cathartic work, a mechanism of alarm, emergency, surprise is intentionally set in motion, keeping the conscience of history awake, in a continuous, interrupted flow back and forth between past, present and future.

Paolo Canevari (Rome, 1963). After graduating from the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, in 1999 he participated in the XIII Quadriennale in Rome and in 2000 he had solo exhibitions in Rome at the Stefania Miscetti Gallery and the Center for Academic Resources in Bangkok. In 2001 he held solo exhibitions in Siena at the Palazzo delle Papesse and many others between 2002 and 2019 at the Christian Stein Gallery in Milan. In 2004 he held the solo show Welcome to OZ at P.S.1 in New York curated by Alanna Heiss, in 2006 A Couple of Things I Have to Tell You at the Sean Kelly Gallery in New York and presented the work Rubber Car at MART in Trento and Rovereto as part of the exhibition Mitomacchina, and also participated in the Peace Tower project at the Whitney Museum of American Art Biennale in New York.

In 2007 he exhibited at MACRO in Rome with the solo show Paolo Canevari – Nothing from Nothing, and participated in the LII Venice Biennale curated by Robert Storr with the video Bouncing Skull, which will become part of the permanent collection of the MoMA in New York. In 2008 he held the solo show Decalogo at the Istituto Centrale per la grafica-Calcografia Nazionale in Rome, while in 2010 he held the solo show Paolo Canevari – Nobody Knows at the Pecci Museum in Prato, curated by Germano Celant and the solo show Odi et Amo at the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna in Rome. In 2011 the solo show Decalogue at the historic institution The Drawing Center in New York is curated by Brett Littman and in 2015 it is included in Arts&Foods. Rituals since 1851, curated by Celant at the Triennale di Milano, as part of the events of Expo Milano.

In 2015 the permanent work Souvenir is presented at the Olnick Spanu Art Program space in Garrison (New York) and in 2018 he is invited to the first Bangkok Biennale. His drawings from the 1990s series Memoria Mia are published in the book of short stories I tacchini non ringraziano by Andrea Camilleri. In 2020 he participated in the following exhibitions: Selfportrait of the artist as a clown at the Gallery Antwerp & Knokke, La Rivoluzione Siamo Noi Collezionismo italiano contemporaneo and Urban Landscapes Human Code at Dip Contemporary Art in Lugano.

After the success of the first edition, the Free Wor(l)d Festival for Freedom of Expression – born in Spoleto last year with the idea of putting people back at the centre through culture and information – the second edition is full of content and relationships. Challenging the difficulties brought about by the current Covid-19 health emergency, the Board of Directors, coordinated by Valentina Tatti Tonni, has proposed four days, from 15 to 18 October 2020, for a thematic festival dedicated to Disinformation, to be present in the territory in an itinerant way, with a series of events designed for the community.

The opening will be a long-distance meeting with schools in the morning of 15 October 2020: in collaboration with the Spoleto Anti-Violence Centre, pedagogist Adelaide Coletti and the president of GIULIA Giornaliste Silvia Garambois will conduct a debate with the junior high-school students, on the theme of sexist and discriminatory languages and the Venice Manifesto. In the afternoon, the book La lingua disonesta by Edoardo Lombardi Vallauri, professor of linguistics at the Roma Tre University, will be presented at the Albornoz Hotel; in the evening at the Albornoz Hotel there will be a concert by the well-known and appreciated Trio Francioli, Marino, Scarabottini. The morning with the schools will be repeated on Friday 16 October 2020 with teacher and writer Lorella Zanardo and film director Cesare Cantù, with the aim of providing students of the last three years of high school with useful tools for interpretation and media education. Zanardo’s format – Screens, if you know them, you don’t avoid them – exported all over Italy as a meeting and show will continue in the evening at the Albornoz Hotel, directed to a wider audience interested in the conscious use of media. In the afternoon the exhibition Il pozzo dei desideri (Italian for “Wishing Well”) by acclaimed photographer Emanuela Duranti will be inaugurated in the town hall in via del Mercato.

On the weekend, the theme of Disinformation will be discussed in two conferences, both at the Albornoz Hotel. On Saturday, October 17, 2020, there will be an open debate in the dynamic style of the Ted Talks (everyone answering from their point of view the question What is true and what is really false?) with the Deputy Secretary General of CittadinanzAttiva Anna Lisa Mandorino, the sociolinguist Vera Gheno, the journalist and president of “Cittadini Reattivi” Rosy Battaglia, the journalist collaborating with Il Sole 24Ore on Travel and Tourism Sara Magro, the lawyer expert in international law Laura Guercio and the actor Mirko Frezza. In the afternoon there will be a conference on human rights with the director of Altraeconomia Duccio Facchini, the sociologist Eurispes Marco Omizzolo, the Equo Garantito councillor Fabrizio Cuniberti and the president of Il Ponte Solidale Stefania Guerrucci. Still on the same theme, in the evening at Sala Frau, the film (ticket: 5 euros) directed by Mick Jackson La verità negata will be screened.

Sunday 18 October 2020, last day of the 2020 Free Wor(l)d Festival, in the morning at the Sala Pegasus there will be a tribute to Andrea Camilleri after one year from his passing, participated by director and dramatist Lorenzo Salveti: Andrea Giuliano, Diletta Masetti and Giorgia Fagotto Fiorentini will read selected passages and there will be an intervention by don Luigi Ciotti. At the Sala Frau there will be the award-giving ceremony of the first edition of the Scientific-Literary Competition “Bernardino Ragni”, intended for the third and fourth classes of second level high schools and continued despite the Covid-19 containment measures, thanks to the tenacity and passion of the teachers who have taken an interest in the students; the competition is promoted by the Associazione Il Contrappunto and IIS Sansi Leonardi Volta. Finally, at 6 p.m. at the Teatro Nuovo Gian Carlo Menotti, the Festival is pleased to propose at the end of this second edition the theatrical performance (ticket: 10 euros) Aletheia: theatre of voices and bodies of women directed by Fabiana Vivani, together with an art exhibition by Maura Coltorti.

This year the Festival features the cultural and social promotion associations BeHuman, Cantiere Oberdan, CittadinanzAttiva, Donne contro la Guerra and Centro Anti Violenza “Crisalide”, Il Contrappunto, Libera with “Angela Fiume”, Sala Frau and the Ubik bookshop.

EXHIBITION | Materia Oscura by Paolo Canevari @ Palazzo Collicola
Oct 18 all-day

curated by Marco Tonelli and Lorenzo Fiorucci
Open to the public from 4 July (15.30) to 13 September 2020
Appartamento Nobile, Palazzo Collicola – Spoleto

Project realised thanks to the Exhibit Program | Directorate General for Contemporary Creativity of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism

Opening hours:
October: from Thursday to Monday 10.00-13.00 / 15.30-19.00

Although all of Paolo Canevari‘s work can naturally be said to be “in black” and has always been conveying obscure contents, no one would ever think to relate it to disturbing facts of our existence exactly when we experience them. But art has a role in history, especially when it tells us something profound about the times we live in, like them or not; in this sense Canevari’s work is as relevant as ever.

The black hole of the pandemic that has shaken the world’s economy, affections, social relations, vision of public and private life, is in some ways an integral part of the tragic and recurring stories that characterize our global era: Canevari’s work lies exactly in this flow.

An articulated exhibition at Palazzo Collicola, in a path that winds from outside the museum with a real symbol (a sculpture unpublished and specially made for the occasion) of the freedoms suspended during months of lockdown around the world and of the many losses that have made the US the nation with the highest number of victims (100.000 at the time of writing): the Freedom of the Monuments of Memory cycle (the statue that illuminates the world, better known as the Statue of Liberty) landed on the external base of the sculpture in Piazza Collicola. While waiting to get up again in a definitive way, the work presents itself as a monument not to forget, to remember and to overcome a collective mourning and an evil that is not yet defeated.

A sign that contemporary art can and must at times confront us with the hardest and most tragic reality, communicating the violence of our times without rhetoric, without false embellishments, even at the cost of posing as an anxious, perturbing object.

Materia oscura (Dark Matter) unwinds then inside the Piano Nobile of Palazzo Collicola, following a path that sees the exhibition of more recent works (sculptures and drawings) from the Monumenti della memoria cycle created between 2016 and 2020 (Vasi, Altare, Tappeto, Landscape), historical sculptures such as Lupe Romane, ThANKS, Colossei and J.M.B. and a selection of video works from the 2000s inspired by the theme of fire such as Burning Skull, Burning Gun, Burning Colosseum, Burning Mein Kampf.

In the contrast between the magnificence of the Appartamento Nobile, the 18th century residence of the Collicola family, rich in antique paintings, gilded frames, frescoes and precious marbles, and Canevari’s “dirty”, cathartic work, a mechanism of alarm, emergency, surprise is intentionally set in motion, keeping the conscience of history awake, in a continuous, interrupted flow back and forth between past, present and future.

Paolo Canevari (Rome, 1963). After graduating from the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, in 1999 he participated in the XIII Quadriennale in Rome and in 2000 he had solo exhibitions in Rome at the Stefania Miscetti Gallery and the Center for Academic Resources in Bangkok. In 2001 he held solo exhibitions in Siena at the Palazzo delle Papesse and many others between 2002 and 2019 at the Christian Stein Gallery in Milan. In 2004 he held the solo show Welcome to OZ at P.S.1 in New York curated by Alanna Heiss, in 2006 A Couple of Things I Have to Tell You at the Sean Kelly Gallery in New York and presented the work Rubber Car at MART in Trento and Rovereto as part of the exhibition Mitomacchina, and also participated in the Peace Tower project at the Whitney Museum of American Art Biennale in New York.

In 2007 he exhibited at MACRO in Rome with the solo show Paolo Canevari – Nothing from Nothing, and participated in the LII Venice Biennale curated by Robert Storr with the video Bouncing Skull, which will become part of the permanent collection of the MoMA in New York. In 2008 he held the solo show Decalogo at the Istituto Centrale per la grafica-Calcografia Nazionale in Rome, while in 2010 he held the solo show Paolo Canevari – Nobody Knows at the Pecci Museum in Prato, curated by Germano Celant and the solo show Odi et Amo at the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna in Rome. In 2011 the solo show Decalogue at the historic institution The Drawing Center in New York is curated by Brett Littman and in 2015 it is included in Arts&Foods. Rituals since 1851, curated by Celant at the Triennale di Milano, as part of the events of Expo Milano.

In 2015 the permanent work Souvenir is presented at the Olnick Spanu Art Program space in Garrison (New York) and in 2018 he is invited to the first Bangkok Biennale. His drawings from the 1990s series Memoria Mia are published in the book of short stories I tacchini non ringraziano by Andrea Camilleri. In 2020 he participated in the following exhibitions: Selfportrait of the artist as a clown at the Gallery Antwerp & Knokke, La Rivoluzione Siamo Noi Collezionismo italiano contemporaneo and Urban Landscapes Human Code at Dip Contemporary Art in Lugano.

Oct 23 @ 21:00

+++ POSTPONED TO APRIL 14, 2021 +++

SOLENGHI-LOPEZ
23 October, h 21.00 – Teatro Nuovo Gian Carlo Menotti
The return on stage of the famous comic duo in a show of imitations, sketches and musical performances.

Massimo Lopez and Tullio Solenghi return together on stage after 15 years like two old friends who meet again, in a show of which they are interpreters and authors, assisted by the Jazz Company of maestro Gabriele Comeglio. The result is a roaring array of voices, imitations, sketches, musical performances, improvisations and interactions with the public. In almost two hours of the show, Tullio and Massimo, “old stage foxes”, offer themselves to the audience with the amusing and emotional empathy of their unmistakable “trademark”: fun is predominant, but there will be moments of deep emotion.

A sign that contemporary art can and must at times confront us with the hardest and most tragic reality, communicating the violence of our times without rhetoric, without false embellishments, even at the cost of posing as an anxious, perturbing object.

Materia oscura (Dark Matter) unwinds then inside the Piano Nobile of Palazzo Collicola, following a path that sees the exhibition of more recent works (sculptures and drawings) from the Monumenti della memoria cycle created between 2016 and 2020 (Vasi, Altare, Tappeto, Landscape), historical sculptures such as Lupe Romane, ThANKS, Colossei and J.M.B. and a selection of video works from the 2000s inspired by the theme of fire such as Burning Skull, Burning Gun, Burning Colosseum, Burning Mein Kampf.

In the contrast between the magnificence of the Appartamento Nobile, the 18th century residence of the Collicola family, rich in antique paintings, gilded frames, frescoes and precious marbles, and Canevari’s “dirty”, cathartic work, a mechanism of alarm, emergency, surprise is intentionally set in motion, keeping the conscience of history awake, in a continuous, interrupted flow back and forth between past, present and future.

Paolo Canevari (Rome, 1963). After graduating from the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, in 1999 he participated in the XIII Quadriennale in Rome and in 2000 he had solo exhibitions in Rome at the Stefania Miscetti Gallery and the Center for Academic Resources in Bangkok.

EXHIBITION | Materia Oscura by Paolo Canevari @ Palazzo Collicola
Oct 26 all-day

curated by Marco Tonelli and Lorenzo Fiorucci
Open to the public from 4 July (15.30) to 13 September 2020
Appartamento Nobile, Palazzo Collicola – Spoleto

Opening hours:
October: from Thursday to Monday 10.00-13.00 / 15.30-19.00

Although all of Paolo Canevari‘s work can naturally be said to be “in black” and has always been conveying obscure contents, no one would ever think to relate it to disturbing facts of our existence exactly when we experience them. But art has a role in history, especially when it tells us something profound about the times we live in, like them or not; in this sense Canevari’s work is as relevant as ever.

The black hole of the pandemic that has shaken the world’s economy, affections, social relations, vision of public and private life, is in some ways an integral part of the tragic and recurring stories that characterize our global era: Canevari’s work lies exactly in this flow.

An articulated exhibition at Palazzo Collicola, in a path that winds from outside the museum with a real symbol (a sculpture unpublished and specially made for the occasion) of the freedoms suspended during months of lockdown around the world and of the many losses that have made the US the nation with the highest number of victims (100.000 at the time of writing): the Freedom of the Monuments of Memory cycle (the statue that illuminates the world, better known as the Statue of Liberty) landed on the external base of the sculpture in Piazza Collicola. While waiting to get up again in a definitive way, the work presents itself as a monument not to forget, to remember and to overcome a collective mourning and an evil that is not yet defeated.

A sign that contemporary art can and must at times confront us with the hardest and most tragic reality, communicating the violence of our times without rhetoric, without false embellishments, even at the cost of posing as an anxious, perturbing object.

Materia oscura (Dark Matter) unwinds then inside the Piano Nobile of Palazzo Collicola, following a path that sees the exhibition of more recent works (sculptures and drawings) from the Monumenti della memoria cycle created between 2016 and 2020 (Vasi, Altare, Tappeto, Landscape), historical sculptures such as Lupe Romane, ThANKS, Colossei and J.M.B. and a selection of video works from the 2000s inspired by the theme of fire such as Burning Skull, Burning Gun, Burning Colosseum, Burning Mein Kampf.

WEATHER# | Online Multimedia work on climate crisis @ online
Jan 30 @ 15:00

WEATHER is a composition by Elizabeth Swados on a script by Filippo Consales, a young man from Spoleto, aiming at raising awareness on the issues of climate change and the human impact on the natural world.
Associazione Bisse, City of Spoleto, La Mama Umbria International, together with international partners La Mama ETC, CultureHub NY, Seoul Institute of the Arts, CultureHub Europe, C.U.R.A., VRTY, Yorb, as well as organisations and artists from different parts of the world, have worked together to bring you a new work, re-imagined as an online, multimedia odyssey.

Monday 8 and Tuesday 9 March: four events streamed on YouTube and Facebook

To mark International Women’s Day, the City of Spoleto has organised four events on Monday 8 and Tuesday 9 March.

The programme, which can be followed by videoconference and in streaming on the social channels of the Authority (Facebook and YouTube), includes two conferences, a concert and a short film dedicated to Italian theatres.

The first appointment will be with Women in Institutions, a conference that will be broadcast live via streaming on the City’s YouTube channel (https://bit.ly/38alu7b) on Monday 8 March at 4 p.m.. The meeting, which will be coordinated by the deputy mayor and councillor for equal opportunities Beatrice Montioni and the councillor for culture Ada Urbani, will be attended by Paola Agabiti (councillor of the Umbria Region), Elisa Sabbatini (mayor of Castel Ritaldi), Roberta Galassi (school manager), Candia Marcucci (director of the Umbrian Reclamation Consortium) and Emilia Bellina (former President of the Court of Spoleto).

As part of the “Musica c’è” project, on Monday 8 March at 6 p.m. there will be a concert entitled Women in music by the teachers of the “A. Onofri” Spoleto School of Music and Dance with Mariangela Campoccia (soprano) and Simona Granelli (piano). The concert will be broadcast on the city’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/ComunediSpoleto).

On Tuesday 9 March at 4 p.m. the conference Women and sport: from myth to modernity will be broadcast live on YouTube. Participants include Beatrice Montioni (deputy mayor and councillor for equal opportunities), Caterina Grifoni (president FIDAPA BPW Italy, Spoleto section) and Romanella Gentili Bistoni (past president FIDAPA BPW Italy, Alta Valle del Tevere section).

The last appointment (9 March at 6 p.m.) will be the short film dedicated to all Italian theatres Applausi. Eco-sustainable haute couture rekindles the stage lights with Giorgia Battistoni, Yuri Napoli, Fabiola Gaudio (violin) and Maestro Lorenzo Porzio (music and piano). The short film is produced by Multimedia Communication, directed by Matteo Cuccu and the screenplay by Maria Costici.

Despite the restrictions and the impossibility of organising, as in the past, a programme of appointments to be lived in presence – said deputy mayor Beatrice Montioni – we managed to realise two occasions of confrontation on the role of women in institutions and in the world of sport, with the intention of providing everyone with elements of knowledge and food for thought useful for understanding the value of gender equality, in a context in which the persistence of discrimination against women and girls is not only a violation of a fundamental human right, but is also a limitation to the achievement of the condition necessary to finally have a prosperous, sustainable and peaceful world.”

The Comedy and its comments – From Jacopo di Dante to Cristoforo Landino @ online
Apr 17 @ 11:00
<!--:it-->La Commedia e i suoi commenti - Da Jacopo di Dante a Cristoforo Landino <!--:--><!--:en-->The Comedy and its comments - From Jacopo di Dante to Cristoforo Landino<!--:--> @ online

Included in the Dante in the Lands of the Duchy initiatives organised by the “Giosuè Carducci” City Library and the State Archives of Perugia on the occasion of the 700th anniversary of the death of Dante Alighieri, on Saturday 17 April at 11.00 a.m. Prof. Rodney Lokaj, professor of Italian philology at the University of Enna “Kore”, will hold a videoconference on the Divine Comedy and its commentaries, a long exegetical tradition that has accompanied Dante’s masterpiece since the death of the “Greatest Poet”.

Prof. Lokaj’s lecture covers a period of time that goes from Jacopo Alighieri’s commentary to Cristoforo Landino’s very successful one, son of the culture of Neoplatonism, of which the Carducci library preserves a precious incunabulum dated 1484.

Rodney Lokaj’s videoconference will be available on the Facebook and YouTube channels of the City of Spoleto.

A second lecture by Prof. Lokaj will be dedicated, in the coming months, to the figure of Giovanni di ser Buccio, a scholar from Spoleto who was among the commentators of the Commedia in the early 1400s.

The programme of initiatives of “Dante in the lands of the Duchy”, opened last March with the inauguration, in the covered courtyard of Palazzo Mauri, of an exhibition of incunabula, sixteenth-century editions, precious illustrated editions, maps and documents with specific reference to the relationship between Dante and the territory of Spoleto, will continue until December 2021 with conferences, concerts, readings aloud, activities with schools, to conclude with the publication of a catalogue.

Reading paths on Dante among the library’s new acquisitions. For those who want to take reading paths on Dante and the Comedy, the Carducci Library indicates some recently published books, among the new volumes available for loan.

Two great scholars of Italian literature, Marco Santagata and Giulio Ferroni, deal with the Divine Comedy, the first offering a useful guide to orientate oneself in the vast universe of the allegorical poem, the second literally making a journey in stages along the peninsula, to sound out the geography and the many places treated or cited in the work. Dante’s encyclopaedic culture and attention to nature are revealed in a text by Angelo Manitta that deals with botany and plants in the Comedy. One of the most highly regarded historians of our time, Alessandro Barbero chisels out a portrait of Dante focusing on his dimension as a man of the Middle Ages. There is also an ironic reinterpretation of Dante’s Inferno by Tommaso Cerno who, aided by Makkox’s biting drawings, recounts the politics and power of Italy at the dawn of the Third Republic.

Rodney Lokaj’s CV. A graduate of Melbourne and Perugia, former student of the classical philologist and Dante scholar Giorgio Brugnoli in Rome, Rodney Lokaj is of Australian origin but a naturalised Italian. He is currently Professor of Italian Philology at the University of Enna ‘Kore’ in Sicily, known worldwide as a scholar of Franciscanism, Dante, Petrarch, Castiglione, Falcone, Bembo, Humanism and the reception of the classical tradition. On Dante, in particular, he has published on the illustrious vernacular, Gianni Schicchi, Piccarda Donati, Saint Francis, and the Veltro. He regularly participates in international conferences in Italy, Europe, North America and Australia. He has long-standing collaborations with the Vatican Library, the State Archives of Perugia, the Saint of Padua, in Poland, China and Spain. He is a member of the scientific committee of numerous journals and scientific academies at national and international level, including: the Deputazione di Storia Patria per l’Umbria, the Società Dantesca Italiana, the executive committee of the North American Society of Neo-Latin Studies. He has collaborated on numerous projects at the Giosuè Carducci Library in Palazzo Mauri, including the Lecturae Dantis.
