64° Festival of Two Worlds
from June 25th to July 11th 2021
www.festivaldispoleto.com

From www.festivaldispoleto.com:

The sixty-fourth edition of the Spoleto Festival dei Due Mondi, the first programmed by artistic director Monique Veaute, opens on Friday 25 June 2021. Founded by Gian Carlo Menotti in 1958, Italy’s oldest performing arts festival once again transforms the city of Spoleto into a stage: from 25 June to 11 July, 60 performances, all Italian premieres, feature more than 500 artists from 13 countries in 15 venues, with some of the world’s best artists and companies offering an uninterrupted flow of music, opera, dance, theatre, allowing audiences to discover the unexpected.

Performances, discussions with artists, collateral events and debates shine a light on contemporary society, illuminating its diversity and complexity. This year at Spoleto, the first edition of Rai’s Festival per il sociale places themes including environmental and economic sustainability, social cohesion and inclusion, the role of women, the new generations and the value of memory at the heart of the discussion.

Dante, Stravinskij, Strehler, Pina Bausch and some of the great classics of the theatre repertoire form a bridge between the past and the future, projected forwards in time thanks to the interpretations of great artists and companies from Iván Fisher to Antonio Pappano, from the Budapest Festival Orchestra to the Accademia di Santa Cecilia, from Mourad Merzouki to Angelin Preljocaj, from Francesco Tristano to Brad Mehldau, from Flora Détraz to Jonas&Lander, from Liv Ferracchiati to Lucien Øyen, from Romeo Castellucci to Robert Lepage to Lucia Ronchetti, and by participants in residencies run by La MaMa Spoleto Open and the Accademia Silvio d’Amico.

There are exhibitions at Palazzo Collicola, while discussions organized by Fondazione Carla Fendi, concerts at the Casa Menotti and numerous collateral events introduce visitors to some of the most beautiful hidden corners of this city.

The 64th edition of the Festival of Two Worlds welcomes live audiences in absolute security. While the health situation means there are restrictions on the number of available tickets, a calendar of online appointments will be streamed via the Digital Stage so that those who cannot attend physically can still take part. A festival which brings people together, creating new opportunities for dialogue and reflection.

ABOUT SOL
Documentary on the life and works of American artist SOL LEWITT

NOTES ON STONE
Documentary on the extraordinary life of sculptor ANNA MAHLER

The Fondazione Carla Fendi’s project for the 64th Festival is a tribute to Spoleto and a focus on two great artists, SOL LEWITT and ANNA MAHLER, both of whom chose Spoleto as their place of choice from the late 1960s to the 1990s. Sol LeWitt, a celebrated minimalist artist, lived between Spoleto and New York from 1970.

Likewise, since 1967, sculptor Anna Mahler, daughter of composer Gustav Mahler and Viennese muse Alma Schindler, lived in those years between Spoleto and London and Los Angeles. Immersed in the culture of the city, they created and left traces of their genius in these places. The same creativity that is still carried on today, also in Spoleto, by the MAHLER & LEWITT STUDIOS, residences created by the heirs Marina Mahler and Carol LeWitt, which host writers and artists of all disciplines from all over the world every year. The Fondazione Carla Fendi wants to explore the personalities of the two artists in two films that focus on the atmospheres, cultural, historical and aesthetic influences that fuelled their creativity in Spoleto.

IM/POSSIBILE_AMORE / SPOLETO in_Covid | Exhibition of words and images on cardboard @ Palazzo Mauri
Jul 5 all-day
Exhibition of words and images on cardboard from Monday 28 June to 30 August at Palazzo Mauri An exhibition of words and images printed on cardboard to celebrate love as the last expression of freedom during the restrictions caused by the COVID19 pandemic. Thoughts, images, feelings, for nature, life or art, love or “dedicated” phrases, sent by travellers, artists, cultural operators, between 14 February and 30 May 2021, printed on cards with a base of 10×15 cm, “signed” with an acronym or pseudonym. The exhibition, titled “IM/POSSIBILE_AMORE / SPOLETO in_Covid”, will open to the public on Monday 28 June at 17.00 at the “G. Carducci” City Library in palazzo Mauri, will be visitable during the library’s opening times (Monday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Thursday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., Friday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.)
The exhibition, organised by Studio_A’87 in collaboration with the City Library and Cittadinanzattiva, features cards dialoguing on the themes of love and feelings with ancient and modern volumes from the heritage of the “Carducci” City Library, chosen for their thematic relevance and iconographic suggestion. The exhibition will be at Palazzo Mauri till 30 August, then from 4 September the works will be on display at the former Info/Point “Concessione 5” in Spoleto, in Piazza Torre dell’Olio, where they will remain visible to passers-by, day and night at all times until 31 December 2021. The “anonymous” cards on display will form a small book that will be donated to the Spoleto City Library and will contain a page with the names of the authors, but the “amorous phrasing” signed with an acronym or pseudonym, will maintain its anonymity as the meaning of suspended time, a fragile human condition in the primary right to health and the continuous need for love. According to the curators, the key concept of the exhibition is that ‘sentiment cannot be patented, nor can the “anti-Covid vaccine”, the fruit of human thought, which is conceptually to be considered a “social feeling of solidarity” and not a speculative practice… //… Art should also ‘convey brotherhood’. The duty of those who place themselves at the service of the general will is to ‘remain somewhat anonymous, ready to mingle at any moment with common humanity’. Indeed, an anonymous love is in itself universal. “Authentic art, then, has a sacred mission: it teaches the indifference of time and space, and makes us aware of our submission to necessity. A work of art has an author, and yet, if it is perfect, it possesses something essentially anonymous. It imitates the anonymity of divine art.

Under the direction of Marco Tonelli, the artistic proposals of this summer 2021 (the opening is scheduled for 26 June and will be open until 26 September) will be a journey between experimentation, writing, drawings and painting, within different conceptual paths developed, in some cases, in periods apparently distant and ideally distant.   Giuseppe Penone: Disegni Curated by Marco Tonelli, the exhibition, conceived together with the artist, will be set up in the inner rooms of the Modern Art Gallery. Promoted by the Festival Of Two Worlds, it is ideally inserted in the tradition of exhibitions of drawings by great modern and contemporary artists, such as MoMA’s American Drawings (1961), Modern Italian Drawings (1962), Willem de Kooning: drawings (1969), James Ensor. Drawings and etchings (1981), Balthus: drawings and watercolours (1982), which were held in Spoleto as part of the Festival. An exhibition of this kind, devoted exclusively to drawings, is the first to be held by Penone in Italy, following the one held at the Drawing Center in New York in 2007.
    Work in Progress. Works from the Modern Art Gallery of Palazzo Collicola and the Marignoli Foundation of Montecorona. Curated by Michele Drascek, Duccio K. Marignoli, Marco Tonelli, two art collections in Spoleto, that of the Modern Art Gallery of Palazzo Collicola and that of the Marignoli Foundation of Montecorona, have sought to compare, creating a seamless historical line, from the 16th century to contemporary times, a particular series of works: sketches, models, preparatory sketches, studies. A total of 70 works will be exhibited, including drawings, paintings, sculptures, wooden maquettes and small models, some of which have been exceptionally recovered from the deposits of Palazzo Collicola or are being shown to the public for the first time from the collection preserved at Palazzo Marignoli.
    Stefano Di Stasio: Astanze Curated by Fabio Sargentini and Marco Tonelli, nine large paintings will be presented in as many rooms on the museum’s exhibition floor, creating a series of rooms, or stations, immersed in darkness and cut out of the dark by a single point of light, which reveals monumental figures of mysterious solitary men charged with symbolic connotations, painted between 1994 and 2011 and coming from a single thematic nucleus: that of the Galleria dell’Attico in Rome, where the artist has held solo and group exhibitions since 1994.
    Josè Angelino: Resistenze Curated by Davide Silvioli, this is a site-specific project by Josè Angelino in collaboration with the Fondazione Carla Fendi and Mahler & LeWitt Studios. All the works on show, which will be located in different areas of Palazzo Collicola, are courtesy of Galleria Alessandra Bonomo. The event is the first appointment of a cycle of exhibitions entitled Collicola Project Room(s), curated by Davide Silvioli and dedicated to emerging artists.

Review of films, shows and events in the courtyard of Palazzo Collicola

Spazio Collicola dedicates two evenings to Lucio Dalla with the screening, scheduled for Monday 5th and Tuesday 6th July at 9.30 pm, of Pietro Marcello’s film Per Lucio.

This documentary outlines a portrait of Lucio Dalla, the Bolognese singer-songwriter and irreverent lyricist. It is a journey into the artist’s poetic imagination, tracing not only the author’s life, but his career, and mixing reality and imagination, drawing on an abundant reservoir, given by various repertoires, which contain public and private material. Through the story and the songs of Dalla himself, the documentary also portrays Italy between  tragic events and the prosperous economic boom.

<!--:it-->64° FESTIVAL DEI DUE MONDI<!--:--><!--:en-->64th FESTIVAL OF TWO WORLDS<!--:--> @ Spoleto

64° Festival of Two Worlds
from June 25th to July 11th 2021
www.festivaldispoleto.com

From www.festivaldispoleto.com:

The sixty-fourth edition of the Spoleto Festival dei Due Mondi, the first programmed by artistic director Monique Veaute, opens on Friday 25 June 2021. Founded by Gian Carlo Menotti in 1958, Italy’s oldest performing arts festival once again transforms the city of Spoleto into a stage: from 25 June to 11 July, 60 performances, all Italian premieres, feature more than 500 artists from 13 countries in 15 venues, with some of the world’s best artists and companies offering an uninterrupted flow of music, opera, dance, theatre, allowing audiences to discover the unexpected.

Performances, discussions with artists, collateral events and debates shine a light on contemporary society, illuminating its diversity and complexity. This year at Spoleto, the first edition of Rai’s Festival per il sociale places themes including environmental and economic sustainability, social cohesion and inclusion, the role of women, the new generations and the value of memory at the heart of the discussion.

Dante, Stravinskij, Strehler, Pina Bausch and some of the great classics of the theatre repertoire form a bridge between the past and the future, projected forwards in time thanks to the interpretations of great artists and companies from Iván Fisher to Antonio Pappano, from the Budapest Festival Orchestra to the Accademia di Santa Cecilia, from Mourad Merzouki to Angelin Preljocaj, from Francesco Tristano to Brad Mehldau, from Flora Détraz to Jonas&Lander, from Liv Ferracchiati to Lucien Øyen, from Romeo Castellucci to Robert Lepage to Lucia Ronchetti, and by participants in residencies run by La MaMa Spoleto Open and the Accademia Silvio d’Amico.

There are exhibitions at Palazzo Collicola, while discussions organized by Fondazione Carla Fendi, concerts at the Casa Menotti and numerous collateral events introduce visitors to some of the most beautiful hidden corners of this city.

The 64th edition of the Festival of Two Worlds welcomes live audiences in absolute security. While the health situation means there are restrictions on the number of available tickets, a calendar of online appointments will be streamed via the Digital Stage so that those who cannot attend physically can still take part. A festival which brings people together, creating new opportunities for dialogue and reflection.

IM/POSSIBILE_AMORE / SPOLETO in_Covid | Exhibition of words and images on cardboard @ Palazzo Mauri
Jul 6 all-day
Exhibition of words and images on cardboard from Monday 28 June to 30 August at Palazzo Mauri An exhibition of words and images printed on cardboard to celebrate love as the last expression of freedom during the restrictions caused by the COVID19 pandemic. Thoughts, images, feelings, for nature, life or art, love or “dedicated” phrases, sent by travellers, artists, cultural operators, between 14 February and 30 May 2021, printed on cards with a base of 10×15 cm, “signed” with an acronym or pseudonym. The exhibition, titled “IM/POSSIBILE_AMORE / SPOLETO in_Covid”, will open to the public on Monday 28 June at 17.00 at the “G. Carducci” City Library in palazzo Mauri, will be visitable during the library’s opening times (Monday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Thursday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., Friday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.)
The exhibition, organised by Studio_A’87 in collaboration with the City Library and Cittadinanzattiva, features cards dialoguing on the themes of love and feelings with ancient and modern volumes from the heritage of the “Carducci” City Library, chosen for their thematic relevance and iconographic suggestion. The exhibition will be at Palazzo Mauri till 30 August, then from 4 September the works will be on display at the former Info/Point “Concessione 5” in Spoleto, in Piazza Torre dell’Olio, where they will remain visible to passers-by, day and night at all times until 31 December 2021. The “anonymous” cards on display will form a small book that will be donated to the Spoleto City Library and will contain a page with the names of the authors, but the “amorous phrasing” signed with an acronym or pseudonym, will maintain its anonymity as the meaning of suspended time, a fragile human condition in the primary right to health and the continuous need for love. According to the curators, the key concept of the exhibition is that ‘sentiment cannot be patented, nor can the “anti-Covid vaccine”, the fruit of human thought, which is conceptually to be considered a “social feeling of solidarity” and not a speculative practice… //… Art should also ‘convey brotherhood’. The duty of those who place themselves at the service of the general will is to ‘remain somewhat anonymous, ready to mingle at any moment with common humanity’. Indeed, an anonymous love is in itself universal. “Authentic art, then, has a sacred mission: it teaches the indifference of time and space, and makes us aware of our submission to necessity. A work of art has an author, and yet, if it is perfect, it possesses something essentially anonymous. It imitates the anonymity of divine art.

EXHIBITIONS AT PALAZZO COLLICOLA @ Palazzo Collicola
Jul 7 all-day

Artistic director Marco Tonelli proposes a journey through experimentation, writing, drawing and painting

Opening to the public on 26 June. Exhibitions will be open until 26 September

There will be four exhibitions organised by the City of Spoleto at Palazzo Collicola on the occasion of the 64th Festival Of 2 Worlds. Under the direction of Marco Tonelli, the artistic proposals of this summer 2021 (the opening is scheduled for 26 June and will be open until 26 September) will be a journey between experimentation, writing, drawings and painting, within different conceptual paths developed, in some cases, in periods apparently distant and ideally distant.   Giuseppe Penone: Disegni Curated by Marco Tonelli, the exhibition, conceived together with the artist, will be set up in the inner rooms of the Modern Art Gallery. Promoted by the Festival Of Two Worlds, it is ideally inserted in the tradition of exhibitions of drawings by great modern and contemporary artists, such as MoMA’s American Drawings (1961), Modern Italian Drawings (1962), Willem de Kooning: drawings (1969), James Ensor. Drawings and etchings (1981), Balthus: drawings and watercolours (1982), which were held in Spoleto as part of the Festival. An exhibition of this kind, devoted exclusively to drawings, is the first to be held by Penone in Italy, following the one held at the Drawing Center in New York in 2007.
    Work in Progress. Works from the Modern Art Gallery of Palazzo Collicola and the Marignoli Foundation of Montecorona. Curated by Michele Drascek, Duccio K. Marignoli, Marco Tonelli, two art collections in Spoleto, that of the Modern Art Gallery of Palazzo Collicola and that of the Marignoli Foundation of Montecorona, have sought to compare, creating a seamless historical line, from the 16th century to contemporary times, a particular series of works: sketches, models, preparatory sketches, studies. A total of 70 works will be exhibited, including drawings, paintings, sculptures, wooden maquettes and small models, some of which have been exceptionally recovered from the deposits of Palazzo Collicola or are being shown to the public for the first time from the collection preserved at Palazzo Marignoli.
    Stefano Di Stasio: Astanze Curated by Fabio Sargentini and Marco Tonelli, nine large paintings will be presented in as many rooms on the museum’s exhibition floor, creating a series of rooms, or stations, immersed in darkness and cut out of the dark by a single point of light, which reveals monumental figures of mysterious solitary men charged with symbolic connotations, painted between 1994 and 2011 and coming from a single thematic nucleus: that of the Galleria dell’Attico in Rome, where the artist has held solo and group exhibitions since 1994.
    Josè Angelino: Resistenze Curated by Davide Silvioli, this is a site-specific project by Josè Angelino in collaboration with the Fondazione Carla Fendi and Mahler & LeWitt Studios. All the works on show, which will be located in different areas of Palazzo Collicola, are courtesy of Galleria Alessandra Bonomo. The event is the first appointment of a cycle of exhibitions entitled Collicola Project Room(s), curated by Davide Silvioli and dedicated to emerging artists.

<!--:it-->64° FESTIVAL DEI DUE MONDI<!--:--><!--:en-->64th FESTIVAL OF TWO WORLDS<!--:--> @ Spoleto

64° Festival of Two Worlds
from June 25th to July 11th 2021
www.festivaldispoleto.com

From www.festivaldispoleto.com:

The sixty-fourth edition of the Spoleto Festival dei Due Mondi, the first programmed by artistic director Monique Veaute, opens on Friday 25 June 2021. Founded by Gian Carlo Menotti in 1958, Italy’s oldest performing arts festival once again transforms the city of Spoleto into a stage: from 25 June to 11 July, 60 performances, all Italian premieres, feature more than 500 artists from 13 countries in 15 venues, with some of the world’s best artists and companies offering an uninterrupted flow of music, opera, dance, theatre, allowing audiences to discover the unexpected.

Performances, discussions with artists, collateral events and debates shine a light on contemporary society, illuminating its diversity and complexity. This year at Spoleto, the first edition of Rai’s Festival per il sociale places themes including environmental and economic sustainability, social cohesion and inclusion, the role of women, the new generations and the value of memory at the heart of the discussion.

Dante, Stravinskij, Strehler, Pina Bausch and some of the great classics of the theatre repertoire form a bridge between the past and the future, projected forwards in time thanks to the interpretations of great artists and companies from Iván Fisher to Antonio Pappano, from the Budapest Festival Orchestra to the Accademia di Santa Cecilia, from Mourad Merzouki to Angelin Preljocaj, from Francesco Tristano to Brad Mehldau, from Flora Détraz to Jonas&Lander, from Liv Ferracchiati to Lucien Øyen, from Romeo Castellucci to Robert Lepage to Lucia Ronchetti, and by participants in residencies run by La MaMa Spoleto Open and the Accademia Silvio d’Amico.

There are exhibitions at Palazzo Collicola, while discussions organized by Fondazione Carla Fendi, concerts at the Casa Menotti and numerous collateral events introduce visitors to some of the most beautiful hidden corners of this city.

The 64th edition of the Festival of Two Worlds welcomes live audiences in absolute security. While the health situation means there are restrictions on the number of available tickets, a calendar of online appointments will be streamed via the Digital Stage so that those who cannot attend physically can still take part. A festival which brings people together, creating new opportunities for dialogue and reflection.

IM/POSSIBILE_AMORE / SPOLETO in_Covid | Exhibition of words and images on cardboard @ Palazzo Mauri
Jul 8 all-day
Exhibition of words and images on cardboard from Monday 28 June to 30 August at Palazzo Mauri An exhibition of words and images printed on cardboard to celebrate love as the last expression of freedom during the restrictions caused by the COVID19 pandemic. Thoughts, images, feelings, for nature, life or art, love or “dedicated” phrases, sent by travellers, artists, cultural operators, between 14 February and 30 May 2021, printed on cards with a base of 10×15 cm, “signed” with an acronym or pseudonym. The exhibition, titled “IM/POSSIBILE_AMORE / SPOLETO in_Covid”, will open to the public on Monday 28 June at 17.00 at the “G. Carducci” City Library in palazzo Mauri, will be visitable during the library’s opening times (Monday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Thursday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., Friday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.)
The exhibition, organised by Studio_A’87 in collaboration with the City Library and Cittadinanzattiva, features cards dialoguing on the themes of love and feelings with ancient and modern volumes from the heritage of the “Carducci” City Library, chosen for their thematic relevance and iconographic suggestion. The exhibition will be at Palazzo Mauri till 30 August, then from 4 September the works will be on display at the former Info/Point “Concessione 5” in Spoleto, in Piazza Torre dell’Olio, where they will remain visible to passers-by, day and night at all times until 31 December 2021. The “anonymous” cards on display will form a small book that will be donated to the Spoleto City Library and will contain a page with the names of the authors, but the “amorous phrasing” signed with an acronym or pseudonym, will maintain its anonymity as the meaning of suspended time, a fragile human condition in the primary right to health and the continuous need for love. According to the curators, the key concept of the exhibition is that ‘sentiment cannot be patented, nor can the “anti-Covid vaccine”, the fruit of human thought, which is conceptually to be considered a “social feeling of solidarity” and not a speculative practice… //… Art should also ‘convey brotherhood’. The duty of those who place themselves at the service of the general will is to ‘remain somewhat anonymous, ready to mingle at any moment with common humanity’. Indeed, an anonymous love is in itself universal. “Authentic art, then, has a sacred mission: it teaches the indifference of time and space, and makes us aware of our submission to necessity. A work of art has an author, and yet, if it is perfect, it possesses something essentially anonymous. It imitates the anonymity of divine art.

Jul 8 all-day

Artistic director Marco Tonelli proposes a journey through experimentation, writing, drawing and painting

Opening to the public on 26 June. Exhibitions will be open until 26 September

There will be four exhibitions organised by the City of Spoleto at Palazzo Collicola on the occasion of the 64th Festival Of 2 Worlds. Under the direction of Marco Tonelli, the artistic proposals of this summer 2021 (the opening is scheduled for 26 June and will be open until 26 September) will be a journey between experimentation, writing, drawings and painting, within different conceptual paths developed, in some cases, in periods apparently distant and ideally distant.   Giuseppe Penone: Disegni Curated by Marco Tonelli, the exhibition, conceived together with the artist, will be set up in the inner rooms of the Modern Art Gallery. Promoted by the Festival Of Two Worlds, it is ideally inserted in the tradition of exhibitions of drawings by great modern and contemporary artists, such as MoMA’s American Drawings (1961), Modern Italian Drawings (1962), Willem de Kooning: drawings (1969), James Ensor. Drawings and etchings (1981), Balthus: drawings and watercolours (1982), which were held in Spoleto as part of the Festival. An exhibition of this kind, devoted exclusively to drawings, is the first to be held by Penone in Italy, following the one held at the Drawing Center in New York in 2007.
    Work in Progress. Works from the Modern Art Gallery of Palazzo Collicola and the Marignoli Foundation of Montecorona. Curated by Michele Drascek, Duccio K. Marignoli, Marco Tonelli, two art collections in Spoleto, that of the Modern Art Gallery of Palazzo Collicola and that of the Marignoli Foundation of Montecorona, have sought to compare, creating a seamless historical line, from the 16th century to contemporary times, a particular series of works: sketches, models, preparatory sketches, studies. A total of 70 works will be exhibited, including drawings, paintings, sculptures, wooden maquettes and small models, some of which have been exceptionally recovered from the deposits of Palazzo Collicola or are being shown to the public for the first time from the collection preserved at Palazzo Marignoli.
    Stefano Di Stasio: Astanze Curated by Fabio Sargentini and Marco Tonelli, nine large paintings will be presented in as many rooms on the museum’s exhibition floor, creating a series of rooms, or stations, immersed in darkness and cut out of the dark by a single point of light, which reveals monumental figures of mysterious solitary men charged with symbolic connotations, painted between 1994 and 2011 and coming from a single thematic nucleus: that of the Galleria dell’Attico in Rome, where the artist has held solo and group exhibitions since 1994.
    Josè Angelino: Resistenze Curated by Davide Silvioli, this is a site-specific project by Josè Angelino in collaboration with the Fondazione Carla Fendi and Mahler & LeWitt Studios. All the works on show, which will be located in different areas of Palazzo Collicola, are courtesy of Galleria Alessandra Bonomo. The event is the first appointment of a cycle of exhibitions entitled Collicola Project Room(s), curated by Davide Silvioli and dedicated to emerging artists.

ABOUT SOL
Documentary on the life and works of American artist SOL LEWITT

NOTES ON STONE
Documentary on the extraordinary life of sculptor ANNA MAHLER

The Fondazione Carla Fendi’s project for the 64th Festival is a tribute to Spoleto and a focus on two great artists, SOL LEWITT and ANNA MAHLER, both of whom chose Spoleto as their place of choice from the late 1960s to the 1990s. Sol LeWitt, a celebrated minimalist artist, lived between Spoleto and New York from 1970.

Likewise, since 1967, sculptor Anna Mahler, daughter of composer Gustav Mahler and Viennese muse Alma Schindler, lived in those years between Spoleto and London and Los Angeles. Immersed in the culture of the city, they created and left traces of their genius in these places. The same creativity that is still carried on today, also in Spoleto, by the MAHLER & LEWITT STUDIOS, residences created by the heirs Marina Mahler and Carol LeWitt, which host writers and artists of all disciplines from all over the world every year. The Fondazione Carla Fendi wants to explore the personalities of the two artists in two films that focus on the atmospheres, cultural, historical and aesthetic influences that fuelled their creativity in Spoleto.

A festival which brings people together, creating new opportunities for dialogue and reflection.
