Passaggi. Le parole dell’umanità attraverso la cultura ebraica (Passages. The words of mankind through the Jewish culture)

ExhibitionsMuseo Tattile Statale Omero

Multisensorial exhibition curated by Andrea Sòcrati.

Starting a travel through the ancient and rich awesomeness of the Jewish culture to discover an alternative dimension to the present and the daily habits, a dimension to seize for an instant the wonder of the world. “PASSAGES - The words of mankind through the Jewish culture”, is the only big exhibition that from the 31st of August will gather, for an active and direct participation, visitors and tourists who are, as mentioned in the title, passing by ("Passaggi") the port of the city, the stones of the building Mole Vanvitelliana. This exhibition is promoted by the Homer State Tactile Museum and by the Jewish Community of Ancona.
The Western Wall, Kotel in Hebrew, also known as Wailing Wall, is one of the most sacred and important ones in Jerusalem and Israel. Jews go there to pray, to express desires and their most private thoughts. It is right here where the word becomes the threshold, the union of the physical and the spiritual, the human and the divine. The word is no longer just lògos, but it becomes fact, gesture, body, a perception pervading all our senses.
A big fabric patchwork (not a barrier) welcomes us, and wants to be crossed to take us metaphorically through a necessary inner travel to reach a possible different dimension, a fourth dimension that "turns the world upside down", making space for dream and imagination.
This is the purpose of Passaggi, the artwork made by Andrea Socrati. The spiritual and mystic strength of the Western Wall is expressed through the sculptures of Socrati, made of terracotta or plaster works, and through a series of relief thermography; another series of thermographies and installations recall the fantastic and visionary world of Marc Chagall.

Four artists from Jerusalem will exhibit the land, the sounds, the mood of Israel, with four artworks:
Chana Cromer, The Distaff Side, inspired to “La donna di carattere” from Libro dei Proverbi, in line with the XV edition of the European day of Jewish culture (14th September 2014);
Ruth Schreiber, Love letters, letters in porcelain inspired to the letters left in the fissures of the Western Wall of Jerusalem.
Andi Arnovitz, Construct/Destruct. Bricks and stones of the old town remind us the Temple of Salomon.
Neta Elkayan, artist between music and figurative arts, audio titled Abuhatzeira, dedicated to the rabbi El Yaakov Abuhatzeira.
In addition to the artists from Jerusalem, three artists who work in Le Marche will participate and will meet the visitors to tell their stories and present their work: Francesco Colonnelli, Giulietta Gheller e Bruno Mangiaterra.
The adoption of NFC technology for some of the exhibited works will not just enhance their multisensorial aspects, but it will also facilitate the access of the disabled, in line with the aim and the mission of the Homer Museum.

The exhibition is part of the program of the Adriatico Mediterraneo Festival, and it is promoted by the Embassy of Israel in Rome, in collaboration with the Biennale of Jewish Contemporary Art of Jerusalem and the Association "Per il Museo Tattile Statale Omero" Onlus.

Inauguration: Sunday 31st August 2014, h 19:00

Itinerari connettivi (Connective itineraries)

ExhibitionsRoom Tamburi at Mole Vanvitelliana

Curated by Associazione Gino l’Immortale

The exhibition "Connective Itineraries" is created to draw the attention of the audience on the road of research taken by some Italian artists who have become, on the national stage, a sort of "aesthetic hubs" of the global network. Their artworks are made of stories, ideologies, settings of this era and have the common feature of belonging to the global dimension, the dimension in which all the human relations coexist in a single home called world, where geographic, cultural, space and time boarders are set according to a new perspective.
The artworks create an itinerary around the concept of “connection”, understood at different levels, semantic and philosophic. The digitalization of reality and its transfer into the informatic global network - based on the network of human links - creates new scenarios of living in new dimensions where the contemporary is subject to different declinations and semantic contexts. The goal of this exhibition is to find links, hidden and unexpected or ostensibly clear, in the cultural Babel called Contemporary, because art has the capability to manipulate reality using its conceptual forms to create every time something new and to anticipate the direction of soul. In art, nothing is more real than something else and, most of all, nothing is historically faker than something else.

In the exhibition “Connective Itineraries” (23rd of August - 28th of September) we have added a series of conferences concerning art in Le Marche Region during the 70s. The goal is to contextualize the tendencies of contemporary art from the historical point of view, showing that they are actually the result of a recent, flourishing and productive past in our region.

What we firmly believe is that Gino De Dominicis was not born “alone”. In those years in Le Marche, artistic research was spread and shared by several artists who marked the end of a cycle of history, paving the way for the contemporary period.

Our attempt is to rebuild ideas and facts from the point of view of the present, because detachment is the only way to observe reality.

As regards the method, we let artists speak and answer as far as possible the questions posed by experts of other disciplines or by people who shared the overwhelming experience known as avan-garde. On the other hand, some other conferences are focused on the historical and social context in which they were elaborated, and on the philosophical interpretations of contemporary art.

Clouds – Visions of Becoming

ExhibitionsRoom Viani at Mole Vanvitelliana

New boarders of painting
Curated by Arci and Fondo Mole Vanvitelliana

The cloud is not stable, it is pushed by the flows from place to place and in these light movements it becomes another substance, a cloud first, then rain, river, sea, fog and cloud again.
Thought, like clouds, is indefinable and endless, according to the postmodernist philosopher Jean-François Lyotard. That's why modern physics, discovering the concept of time and the concept of transformation that time entails, talks about clouds, according to Popper, comparing them to the stillness of classic physics. And today isn't it still the cloud the metaphor of virtual servers in the ether for the filing of our data? This last example is particularly significant for Clouds,that will take advantage of modern technologies of the network and of its dissemination channels.
The project wants to make art socially mobile, to make it move around the places of everyday life (houses, firms, squares, gym, shops, etc.). Moving around these places it will undergo different ways of active use; the exhibition setting will be an active subject as much as the author. The pieces of art will be alive and visible thanks to those who will show them, exhibiting them in their private spaces. Thanks to them, art can complete its function of social ritual.

Clouds originated from the certainty of the great social, collective and cultural value of art and from the need to experiment new ways to enjoy art, directly, personally, and intimately. It is a collection of a number of pieces of art made by different authors on standard formats and materials (40 x 40 cm on paper), and exhibited in spaces and contexts which are different from the ones typically used for this goal.
In fact these artworks, collected in a box, will travel like clouds towards those who wish to receive them. The use of the Internet and of the social networks will be the vehicle of dissemination, documentation and sharing of the project, whose participants can be painters, collectors, art lovers and curious people. Those interested can ask to receive some or all the artworks, in order to exhibit them in their own spaces. In this way, the spectators are not just visitors and users, but active subjects and an integrating part of the project.
At the end of the exhibition, the person who has participated into the project will put the artworks back in the travel box and send it to the next applicant. Thanks to this modality, the artworks will keep on travelling in different places, through people who request them.

Open all days from 18:00 to 22:00.
Closed on Monday

Presentation of the books “Uno che dove va non ritorna” by Mario Di Desidero and “Stanno tutti bene” by Pierfrancesco Curzi

Uno che dove va non ritorna
Mario Di Desidero
Novel - publisher «Pequod»
Introduces Valerio Cuccaroni

cover Uno che dove va non ritornaAn unexpected heritage, and the possibility to make a dream come true: living in London. Poulson, a forty years old man in search of answers, bored to death of his life in a small town, doesn't think twice and leaves everything behind to go to London to settle down. But often, the privilege to enjoy our time in absolute freedom is not enough to feel satisfied. That's why other targets, other places and other people become necessary. "Uno che dove va non ritorna" (literally, One doesn't return to the place he was"), is the story of a disillusioned existence that sails, rather floats on the flow of events. Poulson, the protagonist, is not able to go into deep, to truly live his experiences: he wanders as disoriented, with no direction, and never steps back. A long series of encounters and events, brief love stories, paradoxical situations described with sharp irony and several twists in the plot; but also a tragic and comical growth of consciousness, told through an accurate existential and psychological analysis. Is it possible to know whether the events of our lives are caused by the case or by will. The unexpected final is the answer to this question.

Mario Di Desidero was born in Lanciano. He worked as a scriptwriter in the production of movies about music, like Tamburi e Dei (Tambores ed Deuses, Brasil/Germany, 2001) and Palestrina princeps musicae (Palestrina. Fürst der Musik, Germany/Italy, 2010).

Stanno tutti bene.
Zaino in spalla in Rwanda, Uganda e Kenya sulle tracce di conflitti etnici e folli dittatori
Pierfrancesco Curzi
publisher «Pequod»
Introduces Daniele Valeri

cover Stanno tutti beneA guide, a diary, a tale, a documented story of the recent history of the visited countries: Everybody is fine - Backpacker in Rwanda, Uganda and Kenya on the track of ethnic conflicts and crazy dictators is all these things.
The faithful reconstruction of a 20 days travel through Uganda, Kenya and Rwanda made 15 years after the genocide that shocked Rwanda. Curzi reiterates day by day this extraordinary adventure (as usual during his travels around the world) in a close contact with people and in search of evidence and stories; he puts together the historical events that led the three countries to be what they are today, after the tragedy that gave the book the ironical and paradoxical title "Everybody is fine". But Curzi also gives food for thought and suggestions for unexplored routes out of the usual schemes and tracks.
The reader will live as a protagonist a new travel in undiscovered paths, coming across characters of fiction, but extremely real at the same time, and finding the way to start a unique experience with a backpack and following the author in his adventure. The novel describes with accurateness every day, alternating historical and political digressions with useful suggestions for travellers on the road.
At the beginning of every paragraph, the reader will find the itinerary of the visited places, a mark of the day and an estimate of the expenses. The book contains some photos that have been taken during the travel.

Pierfrancesco Curzi was born in Ancona 46 years ago. He has worked as a journalist for 22 years, and since 2001 he collaborates with «il Resto del Carlino», and writes reports on «Il Fatto Quotidiano» and «il Manifesto». He has always travelled alone, in Chile, Argentina, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Cuba, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Mexico, Tunisia, Morocco, Sierra Leone, Mauritania, Senegal, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya, Zambia and Tanzania, Burkina Faso, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Vietnam, Cambodia, Sri Lanka, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Georgia, Kurdistan. He has been an international observer during the elections in Guatemala and Nicaragua.

With Andrea Lolli, Federica Quaglieri
In collaboration with Commissione Regionale per le Pari Opportunità

Two monologues to talk about violence against women and femicide.
“La storia di Salvatore” (The story of Salvatore): an ironic and funny monologue becomes a noir fiction. An ex wife falls in love with an ex wife. The two wives get to know each other, they discover themselves, they fall in love and become a new couple. They are happy, but the ex husband of Maria doesn't accept it.
“Mi sembrava gentile” (Seemed to me gentle): a man meets the woman of his life. She is thin and encouraging, but she has a "difficult" behaviour. The couple switches from a disillusioned and passionate love to slaps. But she thinks that, in a way, she deserves those slaps, because she is not self-confident.

“Storie di donne morte ammazzate” (Stories of murdered women) is a project of artistic awareness, training and information about violence against women, created and written by Betta Cianchini, who will meet the public during the show. The project is in collaboration with Associazione Punto D and the artists of Spettacoliadomicilio.it.

Concert for harp and cello

MusicCasa delle Culture, via Vallemiano 46 Ancona

Curated by Musica & Sport

Chiara Burattini, cello
Margherita Burattini, harp

Inspired by the Mediterranean spirituality, which in ancient Greece outlined the contrast between the Dionysian mysticism and Apollonian harmony, a dialogue between two very different instruments, aimed at highlighting how the archaic antithesis revisited by harp and cello, can give rise to a combination of extraordinary vitality.
The songs that will be executed draw on a repertoire that ranges between styles, eras and very different cultures, in order to highlight the different nuances that the two voices, exchanging their "roles" of Apollo and Dionysus, may assume.

Meho Radoović - clarinet
Azur Imamović - bass
Rifet Čamdžić - drum
Danijel Čondrić - guitar

The Divanhana comes from Sarajevo, an historical melting pot between East and West, to propose vivacious arrangements of traditional music of Bosnia and Erzegovina. Their music puts a particular emphasis on the sound of the sevdalinka, the traditional musical instrument to express love and distance, passion and joy, dated back to the Ottoman Empire. The band was born in 2009 from a group of students of the music academy of Sarajevo, who, using their respective experiences and sensitiveness, decided to combine elements of the sephardic and eastern music with a pronounced sensitiveness for jazz. Their music flows with the clear voice of the singer Leila Ćatić, that leads the emotions of the listeners in a rich path of joy and melancholy. The group has just participated into a festival in Greece and Portugal and has just finished a tour through the whole Europe.

Between Puglia and the Balkans

Redi Hasa, cello
Maria Mazzotta, voice

An unusual encounter, an innovative experiment. The result is an extraordinary duo in which the incredible voice of Maria Mazzotta from Salento, soloist of the ensemble Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino, easily intertwines with the strings of the Albanian cello of Redi Hasa, soloist of the ensemble of Ludovico Einaudi and of the group Bandadriatica, from Puglia. The project, not by chance titled "Ura" (meaning "bridge" in Albanian and "now" in Salento dialect), brings to light the possible connections among the repertories sailing in the Adriatic sea, joining the Balkans and the Carpathians with the regions of Southern Italy. The voice of Maria Mazzotta gently floats and it is rich of endless shades coming from the musical languages of the two shores, while the sound of Redi Hasa is always adjustable to traditional melodies, making this project incredibly fascinating and capable to build a bridge between distant worlds that become extremely close thanks to music.
