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 book “Balkan Circus” by Angelo Floramo

Angelo Floramo

Publisher: Ediciclo

Introduces Giuseppe D'Emilio, writer and professor at the “Panzini” Institute of Senigallia

Halfway between narrative reportage of travel and map of the soul, Balkan Circus is an experience, a journey into the breath of a colorful and amazing world. A prose which knows Kusturica and Goran Bregovic, weddings and funerals: the Balkans in sweet and sour sauce. Balkan Circus is a journey of the soul that winds through the Balkans, meaning almost legendary epicenter of a Europe still to be explored, which starts from Slovenia and reaches the Caucasus and Siberia, through the Tatra mountains. Floramo gives birth to a set of intersections that arise from the discovery of special people, extraordinary fellow adventurers. Meetings at times touching, others grotesque or ironic, hilarious and improbable, greedy or amazing. The places he describes become almost legendary, according to the story that they know how to narrate, for the energy running through them.

Angelo Floramo was born in Udine in 1966. Friulian, Mixed Race, is Balkan father's side. Medievalist by training, he has published several critical essays, monographs and scientific articles in national and international journals. He teaches humanities at the Technical Institute of Gemona Marchetti (Ud). He is director of the Library Guarneriana di San Daniele (UD).

The Italian cuisine has accepted processes and ingredients from all over the world, to reinvent them and make them their own, building, around the food, a unique culture and a collective identity. Because the kitchen is always contamination and improves traveling and meeting the different.
The size of the Italian genius was - and still is - in reinterpreting the exotic, mix it with the homemade and then spread it all over the world.
The journalist Alessandro Marzo Magno thus reveals the surprising origins of the great protagonists of Italian gastronomy: we learn that the pasta has Arabic origins, the pizza was prepared by the ancient Greeks, and that when we have breakfast at the bar with coffee and croissant, we taste a Turkish drink accompanied by a sweet that symbolizes the Ottoman flag.

Alessandro Marzo MagnoAlessandro Marzo Magno is a journalist, has been several times in the Balkans during the conflict that has ravaged former Yugoslavia. He was, for ten years, responsible of Foreign Affairs of the weekly "Diario" (Diary). He works with "Focus Storia" (Focus History) and the website of "Sole 24 Ore".

Trasponde with Moni Ovadia & Orchestrina Adriatica

Orchestrina Adriatica:

Roberto Lucanero, accordion and melodeon
Antonella Vento, voice
Alen Abdagic, voice

The Adriatic Sea becomes, as in the past, a bridge between its banks, to connect worlds once united politically and culturally. Trasponde is a show based on the intertwining of stories and folk songs of the Adriatic-Mediterranean area and original compositions by Giovanni Seneca, in an intriguing balance between cultural and popular, between classicism and modernity.
The songs have elements in local languages such as Bulgarian, Serbian, Greek, Ladino, Turkish and various Italian dialects. It is therefore a multilingual repertoire, in which sometimes the same melody accompanies texts in different languages, sometimes the same song is made of verses in various languages.
The Balkan musical repertoire is intertwined, in Trasponde, to trends in Western European music, with references and quotes that come from different geographical areas and music: from the Balkans to South Italy, from baroque music to the Central European dances.
Particular is also the organic of the Orchestrina Adriatica: instruments that claim their belonging to different peoples and cultures, and recall the sounds buried in our memory.
These instruments, along with the voices, are the protagonists of this aesthetic journey and accompany the listener on a trip through time and cultures, creating a unique and enveloping soundscape.

Marco Poeta recital "Chitarre del Sud" (Guitars of the South)

MusicSan Rocco's Auditorium, Senigallia

Concert for 12-string acoustic guitar

"Mediterranean and... near"
Concert for 12-string acoustic guitar

Marco Poeta, considered by international critics as one of the most interesting, original and versatile acoustic guitarists of recent years, has an interpretive flair that makes it unique in its kind.
The uniqueness of his art is in the 12-string guitar plucked with the Portuguese "UNHAS", which is the ancient technique of Lisbon's fado to play guitar using only the thumb and forefinger.
A difficult and original technique, that only few, in the world, practice outside of the narrow Lusitanian confines, a technique that Marco Poeta uses with his 12-string acoustic guitar, creating a unique sound to the world.
In the language of phrases, thus it emerges, from the guitar's tradition, wide reminiscences: from choro to bossa-nova, from early Neapolitan's music to the fado, from Eastern Europe's gypsy music to the Mediterranean.
All thanks to the wisdom and sensibility refined in 50 years of music played as a perfect self-taught, with prestigious collaborations, from Sergio Endrigo to Eugenio Finardi, from Francesco Di Giacomo to Franco Cerri.

A3 Apulia Project in concert

Mediterranean from Puglia

Fabio Bagnato (swing guitar - acoustic guitar - Calabrian lyre - voice)
Walter Bagnato (accordion - piano - synt - choirs)
Adalberto Ferrari (clarinets - sax)
Roberto Zanisi (cajon – darabouka - congas)
Angelo Verbena (contrabass - electric bass)
Tommaso Summo (drum - effects)
Rossella Di Terlizzi (dance)

The design of the A3 Apulia Project is the brainchild of Fabio Wet, author, composer and guitarist specializing in the study and dissemination of swing guitar, classic instrument of the folk tradition of southern Italy. The project name is borrowed from one of the most famous highway in the South (the Salerno - Reggio Calabria), because, as the A3 highway, the A3 music of Apulia Project acts as connection for an ideal trip in the Mediterranean Sea, always the bearer of new cultures that mingle with the ancient traditions of Southern Italy. The passion for travel and, at the same time, for their own land has always been the main source of inspiration of the A3 Apulia Project. The homeland permeates the music creating an ethno-folk-rock contaminated with different matrices related to popular music, but also to the great Italian singers; to this is added a critical view of current events, which is evident in the texts characterized by a strong air of songwriting. The roots of A3 Apulia Project, therefore, not only are enclosed within the geographical boundary of Puglia, the region of origin of the band, but in every "twin" land, to draw a single region, the Mediterranean, musical fatherland and generous mother with endless stimuli. So the sounds of swing guitar, accordion and tambourine, go to flank more modern sounds, such as the one of the electric bass, of the cajon and the drum. The A3 Apulia Project want to set to music an old story, screeching on the strings of memory, pinching the vein of memories, to walk an ancient road to new horizons.
