Rocca Albornoz – National Museum of the Duchy of Spoleto

5 March – 30 July 2017

GUESTS AT THE ROCCA – from 5 March

TREASURES FROM THE VALNERINA – from 9 April

An extraordinary body of works join the collections on display at the Rocca Albornoz – National Museum of the Duchy of Spoleto, for a unique exhibition, a tribute to the vitality of Umbria, a land that knows how to react. The exhibition is strictly connected to the fundraising campaign to support the restoration of works damaged by the earthquake.

Umbria is a land that reacts to the events with the strength of her cultural heritage. From 5 March to 30 July 2017, the Rocca Albornoz – National Museum of the Duchy of Spoleto will host a series of works that were spared from ruin after the recent earthquake in Central Italy, thanks to an important exhibition organized by Regione Umbria, Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Assets and Tourism, Spoleto-Norcia Archdiocese and the City of Spoleto. Sistema Museo will be the exhibition’s operative managing subject. The event is included in the “Discovering Umbria” programme, supported by Regione Umbria to promote and highlight the museum activities.

The exhibition “Treasures from the Valnerina” opens on 5 March with a body of works coming from areas of Marche, Lazio and Umbria, that were struck by the earthquake, an evidence of solidarity among areas sharing such a mournful event, as well as cultural and artistic roots. The exhibition features works selected following various criteria, yet they all show a very deep symbolism, such as the 16th-century Wooden Crucifix from the church in Sant’Anatolia di Narco, a 16th-century “Madonna with Child” from Avendita, the Annunciation by Andrea della Robbia from the Castellina Museum, Norcia, an exquisite “Madonna with Child” (painting on table) by Ulisse da Siena, previously at the Diocesan Museum in Ascoli Piceno, and a refined “St. Sebastian” dating to the second half of the 17th century, coming from Scai, close to Amatrice. The exhibition is strictly tied to the crowdfunding campaign that started on 1 February, to support the restoration of other works of art that were damaged by the seism. It is possible to participate in the campaign here: (https://valorecultura.starteed.com/it/lightquake).

From 9 April, a wide selection of works already restored after 24 August 2016, will be included in the exhibition “Treasures from the Valnerina”. These artistic treasures are ambassadors to Italy and to the world of Umbria’s vitality, a “collective tribute” to an invaluable richness of art and history.
The 2016 earthquake struck hard the cultural heritage of an area of Umbria, the Valnerina, which is for many the place of soul. Not only a land of spirituality, tied to St. Benedict and St. Rita from Cascia, but also a harmonious whole of landscape, burgs, churches, and works of art, now wounded by the merciless shocks that started on 24 August and went on for the whole autumn, 2016. The work and self-denial of many who operated in this emergency (MiBACT, Fire Brigade Units, Italian Army, Civil Defence, Carabinieri’s Cultural Heritage Protection Unit, Volunteers) allowed to rescue many works from damaged churches and museums in Valnerina, and to store them in the Santo Chiodo di Spoleto specialized depot (4000, so far). From here, they will be able to receive the “cures” by restorers at the Vatican Museums, at the Florence Opificio delle Pietre Dure and other skilled restorers, and wait to return to their original settings, when ready. In the meantime, thanks to the project “Discovering Umbria”, it will be possible to see a significant part of them in an exhibition at the National Museum of the Duchy of Spoleto, where they will be on display from 9 April.

What will be possible to see in the Spoleto exhibition is the result of a committment that started soon after the earliest shocks, a sign of the professionalism and competence of the many who were called to protect the cultural heritage. Only a small part of Umbria was directly damaged by the earthquake, even if the images of seriously-struck churches have moved many a heart, but the will of the Umbrian community is that of not giving up and continue to protect their historical and artistic heritage.
The earthquake’s wounds are faced by bodies and people with the invitation to all those who love Umbria to come and visit its museums and monuments, which are open, vital, and offer an extraordinary view on history, art, environment and traditions.

DISCOVERING UMBRIA

“Discovering Umbria” shows a land that reacts to the events with the strength of its cultural heritage. Art and history meet in the region’s museum network, that features more than 170 museums, ecomuseums and archaeological sites. In the land of Giotto, Signorelli, Perugino and Burri, each museum is an evidence of the connection between community and land.
Museums represent the main tool to know the history, art, burgs and landscape of Umbria: hundreds of proposals, itineraries and curiosities that raise intense emotions, an invitation to discover the art that has marked the history of this land and become one with the contemporary.

In 1958 Spoleto welcomed the first great multidisciplinary art and performance review of the twentieth century, conceived by Gian Carlo Menotti as an opportunity for cross-cultural contamination between Europe and the United States of America.

This long and suggestive tale unravels across the city along the mechanized paths leading to the Old Town and in commercial activities.

A project conceived and carried out by Emaki Immagine e comunicazione, with the organization and coordination of Stefano Bonilli and Mario Brunetti’s artistic direction.

The section of the exhibition 1958: alle radici della storia is edited by Antonella Manni and Rosaria Mencarelli with the collaboration of Spoleto State Archive Department.

LECTURAE DANTIS 2017 @ Biblioteca Comunale "G. Carducci"

<!--:it-->LECTURAE DANTIS 2017 <!--:--><!--:en-->LECTURAE DANTIS 2017 <!--:--> @ Biblioteca Comunale "G. Carducci" | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

LECTURAE DANTIS 2017 
From 6 October to 21 December at the Public Library, Palazzo Mauri

After the success of the last years, the integral reading of Dante’s Divine Comedy resumes from October 6 to December 21, each Friday afternoon at 17 by the Public library in Palazzo Mauri; this leg includes the reading of 11 cantos from the Paradise, from the XIIth to the XXIInd.

Readings will be by actor Claudio Trionfi, with comments by academics co-ordinated by professor Rodney John Lokaj.

During the event, (October through December) some editions of the Divine Comedy owned by the Public Library will be on display, including the 1484 Venetian incunabulus commented by Cristoforo Landino (1424 – 1498).

Nine cycles of reading have already taken place, that featured the first two canticas, and Hell’s first 11 cantos. The experience shows the modern interest in Dante and his work.

Lectura Dantis is a specific form of divulgation à haute voix, historically well defined and codified, which originated in the XIVth century thanks to Giovanni Boccaccio, and evolved through the ages, yet respecting the traditional interconnection between verse reading and exegetical comment.

In 2015 an old woman from Mosul flees with her 4-yo granddaughter, covering 5.000 Km from Iraq to the Baltic Sea, across the so-called Balcan Route. This is her story.

Friday 24 November at 21, at the Teatro Nuovo, it’s the turn of Mariti e Mogli, adapted and directed by Monica Guerritore who is also in the cast along with Francesca Reggiani. The play is freely adapted from Woody Allen’s much praised film.

Saturday 9 December at 21, again at the Teatro Nuovo, Massimo Dapporto is the protagonist of Un borghese piccolo piccolo, extraordinary novel by Vincenzo Cerami who inspired Monicelli’s cinema masterpiece, a tragic comedy that offers hilarious moments.

What is life like in an Italian small town? Michele, Stella, Elisa and Caroline are four guys from Todi. A fifth character, a documentarist, connects fiction to reality observing and noting the features of the city and its inhabitants. What is life like in a place where everybody knows everyone? What should you rather avoid doing in Todi? These are but some of the questions that were actually asked to more than a hundred people in Todi, that the play aims at giving back through a collage that supports the story of the four protagonists.

Saturday 20 January at 21 at the Teatro Nuovo, the Györ Ballet Company (one of the oldest, most praised European contemporary dance companies) will stage two masterpieces, Maurice Ravel’s  Bolero and Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana.

The fascist regime didn’t choose one. It counted 1238 and cut twelve, casual heroes of those who only have left an extreme resource of dignity, that of refusal. This happened on 13 November 1931. The theatre play tells the story of one of them.

Thursday 8 March at 21 at the Teatro Nuovo, the closing play will be Rosalind Franklin. Il segreto della vita by Anna Ziegler, directed by Filippo Dini, featuring Asia Argento, Filippo Dini.

As part of the XIV National Urban Trekking Day, whose theme will be Trekking amidst mysteries and legends, the city of Spoleto proposes an itinerary entitled

FROM THE LEGEND OF THE STAR TO LUCRETIA BORGIA’S INTRIGUES

Many legends populate Spoleto’s age-old history, related to local facts and characters. Among the most mysterious ones you certainly find the Miraculous Star, which originated one of the first orphanages on European soil, ruled by Augustinians Nuns. Following the nuns you will reach the church of St. Pontianus, with a first stop at the Roman Ponte Sanguinario, beheading place of Spoleto’s patron saint. The legend mentions it as the arrival point of an underground tunnel from the Rocca that was never found. The ancient fortress’ highest tower is also known as “the possessed one”; the remembering of charming Lucretia Borgia still lingers there; after coming to Spoleto aged 19, she was appointed city governor by her father, pope Alexander VI.

ITINERARY

Meeting is at Piazza Garibaldi (see technical file). Visit to the Auditorium della Stella and Roman Amphitheatre area. Visit to the Ponte Sanguinario (Piazza della Vittoria) – Through Via Cacciatori delle Alpi, Via Micheli and Via della Basilica you will reach the church of St. Ponziano – Return to Via delle Lettere, Via Ponzianina, Via delle Mura Ciclopiche (or the Ponzianina escalator), Piazza della Signoria, Piazza del Duomo (Cathedral), Via dell’Arringo, Via Saffi, Via del Ponte (Ponte delle Torri), Via Gattaponi and the rise to the Rocca (or via the elevator).

LECTURAE DANTIS 2017 
From 6 October to 21 December at the Public Library, Palazzo Mauri

After the success of the last years, the integral reading of Dante’s Divine Comedy resumes from October 6 to December 21, each Friday afternoon at 17 by the Public library in Palazzo Mauri; this leg includes the reading of 11 cantos from the Paradise, from the XIIth to the XXIInd.

Readings will be by actor Claudio Trionfi, with comments by academics co-ordinated by professor Rodney John Lokaj.

During the event, (October through December) some editions of the Divine Comedy owned by the Public Library will be on display, including the 1484 Venetian incunabulus commented by Cristoforo Landino (1424 – 1498).

Nine cycles of reading have already taken place, that featured the first two canticas, and Hell’s first 11 cantos. The experience shows the modern interest in Dante and his work.

Lectura Dantis is a specific form of divulgation à haute voix, historically well defined and codified, which originated in the XIVth century thanks to Giovanni Boccaccio, and evolved through the ages, yet respecting the traditional interconnection between verse reading and exegetical comment.

Nov 10 @ 21:30

LIBRO D’ INGRESSO (Entrance Book) is a special event’s formula inaugurated last spring, in collaboration with the direction of Cinema Sala Pegasus and with the support of Spoleto’s Department of Culture. Its creators, V. Maticora and L. G. Santiago, present three new evenings of shows combined with three books.

The recipe is always the same: the entrance “ticket” is the book from which the performance of words, music and everything else is based.

The successful public participation of the previous edition encouraged organizers to repeat the experiment and involve even more subjects in the attempt to create a real creative workshop around the idea of “short literature”.

The performances will take place in November, on the stage of Sala Pegasus, with three different forms of staging.

On NOVEMBER 10 the series of events will be inaugurated by #SIneNOmine company, an art project involving the prison in Maiano. The company will present LA LETTERA U, with a performance taken from the work of Iginio Ugo Tarchetti, scapigliato writer of the second half of the nineteenth century. Interpreters: Diletta Masetti and Roberto di Sibbio for

On NOVEMBER 16, Italian actor and dubber Pietro Biondi will bring on stage CREATURE NON PERVENUTE, an imaginary bestiary that collects stories of absurd and improbable living beings written by Luis Gabriel Santiago.

On NOVEMBER 23,  AI PIEDI DELLA NOTTE, a collection of poetry and prose by Rutilio Clivi, will conclude the cycle of the Entrance Book. The show will be played by actors Cristina Antonini and Maurizio Armellini together with the singer Nyla van Ingen, who will perform the lieder composed by maestro Stefano Taglietti – also on stage – taken from the volume’s poems.

LECTURAE DANTIS 2017 
From 6 October to 21 December at the Public Library, Palazzo Mauri

After the success of the last years, the integral reading of Dante’s Divine Comedy resumes from October 6 to December 21, each Friday afternoon at 17 by the Public library in Palazzo Mauri; this leg includes the reading of 11 cantos from the Paradise, from the XIIth to the XXIInd.

Readings will be by actor Claudio Trionfi, with comments by academics co-ordinated by professor Rodney John Lokaj.

During the event, (October through December) some editions of the Divine Comedy owned by the Public Library will be on display, including the 1484 Venetian incunabulus commented by Cristoforo Landino (1424 – 1498).

Nine cycles of reading have already taken place, that featured the first two canticas, and Hell’s first 11 cantos. The experience shows the modern interest in Dante and his work.

Lectura Dantis is a specific form of divulgation à haute voix, historically well defined and codified, which originated in the XIVth century thanks to Giovanni Boccaccio, and evolved through the ages, yet respecting the traditional interconnection between verse reading and exegetical comment.

Docufilm presentation: THE GREAT STRIKE – STORIES FROM INSIDE THE EARTHQUAKE @ Sala Pegasus

Wednesday 22 November at 21.30, at the Sala Pegasus, film director Sandro Baldoni will introduce his documentary La botta grossa – Storie da dentro il terremoto.

It is the story of the 30 October 2016 earthquake that hit Central Italy with the strongest shock in 40 years. Baldoni was born and grew in the area of the Sibillini Mountains, devastated by the seismic event.

Starting from his own pulled-down house, and from his own mood, Baldoni travels across the deep fears, traumas, states of anxiety, rage and hopes of the people, in what is a travel from the interior. The meeting will be moderated by Roberto Lazzerini.

The evening will be opened by the short movie Mi vedrai correre (You’ll See Me Running) by independent film-makers ‘The Stairway Production‘ that aims at sending out a message to all those who suffered many a great loss, yet keep on struggling. The short movie was realized by film director Duccio Brunetti and features Riccardo Pompili, Nicolò Marchi, Alessandro Elisei, Diletta Masetti, Mirko Peruzzi, Nicolas Mari. It was selected for participation in the 2018 David di Donatello short movies competition.

Info and reservation: 339.4012680 / cinemasalapegasus@gmail.com

La botta grossa – Storie da dentro il terremoto is a story made by those who were forced out of their homes, like its director himself. The story is the same that was told by the media, but it has a different tone that swerves away from the Breaking News. It faithfully talks of what happens in a year to those who lost almost everything. It teaches how to survive while waiting for the recovery. It is not only a matter of pain, loss or dismay; it also includes a flash of the will, of humanity and self-organization. There is no rhetoric, replaced by irony, the warmth of a pun, of a smile. “Stop surviving, start to live!” Let’s all shake up, after the shocks.

Thus Baldoni undertakes his road-movie among dismal roads, forced stayings by the sea in winter, jury-rigged schools, gyms turned to psychologist studios and stories told by the elders, or a hermit who does something that represents thousands. In La botta grossa you cry and you laugh, while rebuilding a sustainable Newmanity. A film that talks of some people somewhere, to all Italian citizens.
