Spoleto has welcomed and shared the first XXth-century, multidisciplinary art festival, conceived by Gian Carlo Menotti as a cultural blending ground between Europe and the US. To celebrate the 60th anniversary of such fantastic creation, the City of Spoleto organizes a great exhibition across its historical centre.
The exhibition starts ideally from the Rocca Albornoz, with the section "1958: The Roots of History", and finishes at the former church of St. Agatha, re-opened for the occasion, where you will dive into an evocative narration of the artistic events of these last 60 years.
Fragments of this wide and charming story will unravel through the whole city, along the mechanized routes toward the city centre and in the shops.
