From June 28 h 17:00 | Palazzo Collicola

Concert

solo exhibition of Roberto Fassone

CURATED BY Saverio Verini

The ground floor hosts Concerto, the first solo exhibition in a public museum by Roberto Fassone (Savigliano, 1986). The exhibition, curated by Saverio Verini, director of the Civic Museums of Spoleto, presents a series of works created by the artist throughout his career. The distinct conceptual dimension of Fassone's practice has always been oriented towards reflection on the status of 'opera of art, is expressed through works endowed with a playful and experimental character, with which the artist attempts to expand the imaginative potential of the observer. The exhibition project constitutes a first and broad reading of the entire opera of Fassone, active from over a decade in the sphere of Italian and international contemporary art, recently awarded the prestigious MAXXI BULGARI PRIZE for Digital Art.

Beginning end.

Round.

All things in the world.

solo exhibition of Chiara Camoni

CURATED BY Saverio Verini

The spaces of the Piano Nobile host a solo exhibition of artist Chiara Camoni (Piacenza, 1974), to curated by Saverio Verini, entitled Beginning End. Round. All Things of the World. The artist's works dialogue with the rooms of the palace and its pre-existences - the furniture, the paintings, the decorations -, creating an exhibition path that winds through all the rooms: references to the natural and plant world, strongly present in Camoni's practice, meet with the splendor of the rooms of Palazzo Collicola, in an unprecedented confrontation that also sees the presence of works created especially for the occasion. The exhibition was born thanks to the collaboration with Festival dei Due Mondi: Chiara Camoni, in fact, is also the author of the Spoleto67 poster, adding her name to a long list of internationally renowned artists.

My End Is My Beginning

installation by Lulu Nuti

CURATED BY Spazio Taverna

With European Gravitational Observatory

The room adjacent to the Carandente Library, on the second floor of Palazzo Collicola, hosts an unreleased intervention by artist Lulù Nuti (Paris, 1988), My End Is My Beginning. The project, curated by Spazio Taverna, is the result of the artist's collaboration with the European Gravitational Observatory (EGO), the CAOS laboratory of the University of Perugia and the National Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN). L'opera was in fact born to margin of a residency that Nuti held at the European Gravitational Observatory in Cascina (PI): the meeting between the artist and the researchers led to the creation of a large-format sculpture, which recalls a movement of expansion and contraction, the symmetry of a gravitational field to rest and the vertigo that the imagination feels when depicting the curvature of spacetime. With Lulù Nuti'sopera , this museum space intends to increasingly characterize itself as a showcase for emerging artists, invited to present themselves with a "one-act" that invests the entire room.

The new weakness

photographs from the Attolico Collection

CURATED BYy Serena Schioppa, Saverio Verini

Three rooms in the center of the second floor of Palazzo Collicola, where the museum's permanent collection of contemporary art is on display, host The New Weakness. Photographs from the Attolico Collection, to curated by Serena Schioppa and Saverio Verini. The title takes a phrase from collector Bianca Attolico, who called her interest in photography, which grew in the early 2000s, her "new weakness." Based on a selection of works, the exhibition project offers a wide-ranging overview of contemporary photography, through themes and looks ranging from the urban landscape to the natural one, to an interest in portraits and the human figure. The names include internationally renowned contemporary artists: Regina Josè Galindo (Guatemala City, 1974), Thomas Ruff (Zell, 1958), Santiago Sierra (Madrid, 1966), Anri Sala (Tirana, 1974), Jonathan Monk (Leicester, 1969), Elisabetta Benassi (Rome, 1966), alongside historicized Italian authors such as Mario Giacomelli (Senigallia, 1925 - 2000), Gabriele Basilico (Milan, 1944 - 2013) and Gianni Berengo Gardin (Santa Margherita Ligure, 1930). The exhibition intends to emphasize once again the link between Palazzo Collicola and the Attolico family, from years close to the Museum and its activities, not least thanks to Elena Attolico's commitment as president of the association "Friends of Palazzo Collicola".

Performing across frontiers

documentary exhibition on theAtelier of Formia

CURATED BY Gertrude Gibbons, Giulio Pampiglione

On the ground floor, in the room adjacent to the box office, is Performing across Frontiers, curated by Gertrude Gibbons and Giulio Pampiglione. The exhibition project is intended to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the final performance of the Formia-based theater company Atelier, Bruno Jasieński's ll Ballo dei Manichini, held at Festival dei Due Mondi in July 1984. The exhibition includes the display of archival material of the director of Atelier di Formia, Giovanni Pampiglione, characterizing itself as a tribute to the history of the theater company and, at the same time, to that of the Festival.

From Day to Night

installation by Felice Levini

a collaboration Musei Civici di Spoleto and Associazione Hypermaremma

with the support of Gold Coast

The spaces outside the palace host the installation Dal giorno alla Notte (From Day to Night ) by artist Felice Levini (Rome, 1956), thanks to a collaboration between the Civic Museums of Spoleto and the Hypermaremma association, from years active in the promotion of contemporary art. Levini'sopera , produced by the association on the occasion of the last edition of the Hypermaremma festival, is formed from three large red arrows ideally shot from above that, combining mythology and symbolism, are presented as "divine signals," to indicating a place to its own sacred way. The presence of the arrows that make up theopera - together with the projection of their shadows - will contribute to characterize the courtyard of Palazzo Collicola, becoming a new distinctive element of that space, freely accessible to the public during the opening hours of the museum. Felice Levini's installation is possible thanks to the generous support of the Costa d'Oro company.

Trace_001

gammatrace solo exhibition

On the basement floor (entrance from via Loreto Vittori) will be presented Trace_001, an exhibition by gammatrace, a digital artist who answers by the name Nicolò Marchi (Spoleto, 1990). The exhibition, the artist's first solo show, draws a disturbed and contaminated reality, in which mind, body and space break the boundaries that divide them, giving life to figures caught in a suspended state, whose forms appear compromised, on the verge of unraveling. Trace_001 consists of works made in CGI (computer generated imagery) and brings together two cycles: Nebuxel, from 2021, and Phosphenesis, the most recent and partially unseen, which involved collaboration with British actor and artist Laurence Fuller and U.S. director and actor Vincent D'Onofrio in the making of a'opera of this series.

From June 29 h 10:30 a.m. | Church of Saints John and Paul

Today

installation by Luca Bertolo

CURATED BY Saverio Verini

The Church of Saints John and Paul hosts Oggi, an exhibition project by artist Luca Bertolo (Milan, 1968), curated by Saverio Verini. The installation consists of a large-scaleopera , inspired to a series of paintings by the artist entitled Veronica, in which the reading of the potential subject, covered from a veil, is made problematic. Indeed, the identification of the underlying subject is sacrificed in place of an image that simultaneously affirms and denies the very idea of representation. The reference is to the Christian figurative tradition: the "veronica" in fact indicates the veil that contains the imprint of Jesus' face. Theopera presented, Untitled (2024), has a specific relationship with the church, the place for which it was conceived, where there are numerous frescoes created between the 13th and 16th centuries, compromised and "shielded" by the passage of time, but still endowed with magnificent eloquence. Bertolo's project is completed from a small block of marble engraved with the word "today," from which the title of the exhibition derives: a statement of topicality, but without real temporal references (today, when?); a "here and now" that questions and prompts the observer about the layering of eras and signs that overlap in the church.

From June 29 h 10:30 a.m. | Casa Romana

Pauline and her Double

installation by Vettor Pisani

CURATED BY Pietro Tomassoni

The Casa Romana hosts the installation of Pauline and her Double, featuring two works by Vettor Pisani (Bari, 1934 - Rome, 2011) curated by Piero Tomassoni. Refractory to the poetics in vogue in the 1970s, Pisani elaborated a vision of art inspired by myth and the magical and religious beliefs of Hermeticism and pre-Christian doctrines. A deeply learned artist, throughout his career Pisani has created works that address the great themes of existence, manifesting an interest in the relationship with Greek and Roman history and mythology, as well as having placed at the center of his practice the theme of the "house" as a symbolic place and theater of artistic operations. For this reason, the Roman House appears to be a particularly suitable place to host the artist's works. Oedipus and the Medusa is connected to the extensive retrospective that CIAC in Foligno dedicates to Pisani between June and September, creating a concrete and unprecedented synergy between the two museum realities of the cities of Spoleto and Foligno. The works presented come from the Vettor Pisani Museum in Caggiano, part of the Fondazione Morra in Naples, a reference collection for Vettor Pisani as well as one of the world's leading contemporary art collections.

Umru: tales from a hydrosocial landscape

exhibition by Cecilia Ceccherini and Alberto Valz Gris

a project in collaboration with Mahler & LeWitt Studios

CURATED BY Guy Robertson

The Textile and Costume Museum hosts a project in collaboration with Mahler & LeWitt Studios, curated by Guy Robertson: Umru: tales from a hydrosocial landscape by artist Cecilia Ceccherini and geographer Alberto Valz Gris. Using a large-scale tapestry and sound installation, the project explores how communities are defined by their access to water. Taking Spoleto and its environs as a starting point, Ceccherini and Valz Gris draw on several episodes related to the area, including the legend of the dragon of San Felice and Mauro-understood as water mythology, contested water sources used for commercial bottling, and the survival of a rare mountain shrimp in the Monti Sibillini National Park. The project involved the collaboration of giulia deval, Henry Albert and Guglielmo Diana.
