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 “Operaio in mare aperto. Conversazioni su lotta, uguaglianza, libertà” by Gianni Usai with Loris Campetti

MeetingsSpazio Incontri of the Mole Vanvitelliana

Introduces Massimo Raffaeli

Introduces Massimo Raffaeli

The book describes a journey roundtrip from Arbus, the land of knives, to Turin, the city of the car and of hope for so many emigrants in search of a less bleak future of what awaited them in the hinterland of western Sardinia, as well as many others in the south of Italy. Here then is the story of the work at Mirafiori, of the '69 with workers' struggles, of the 70s, of the defeats and the return to Sardinia, with the discovery of a new life in contact with the sea and its environment.
The book is a dialogue between Gianni Usai and Loris Campetti, journalist and writer, covering more than sixty age of small and large history, and wonders about the hopes, dreams and nightmares, the victories and defeats of a piece of generation - the sessantottini - that continues to believe that another world is possible.

Gianni Usai, who emigrated from Sardinia to Turin, he worked at Fiat Mirafiori until 1980. He worked at the construction and growth of the fishermen cooperative of Su Pallosu and collaborates with the Institute of Marine Biology of the University of Cagliari.

Loris Campetti, born in Macerata, he conducted for about ten years, the drafting of Turin of “il Manifesto”. For the same newspaper was sent on European issues, managing editor and senior editor of the economy.

Spanish music and dance

Andrea Candeli, guitar
Corrado Ponchiroli, voice, dance, palmas
Michele Serafini, flute
Chiara Guerra, dance, palmas

The project, conceived and directed by Andrea Candeli, is a musical journey through the songs and poems of Federico Garcia Lorca. The guitar will take the viewer on a sentimental journey to discover the mythical creations, such as the figure of the “Gypsy” and “torero”, come out from the pen of the poet more sensitive. Are arias with a strong local color, impregnated with all variants of the pain, always dominated by love and death, where the eternal question, typically in Lorca, remains unanswered. It is an artistic transposition of that gypsy Andalusia, rich of cultural folk traditions, strongly dominated by colors and feelings, able to convey emotions so deep in their primitive simplicity.
The project therefore has the ambition to plot a musical-historical thread of a tradition so rich but little-known, through music, the dancing, the singing of Andalusia and the verses written by Federico Garcia Lorca.

The black tarantella meets the Macedonian fanfare, and the result is an explosion of music, sounds, voices and colors that break down walls and boundaries, go beyond the seas and through villages and towns. (festival exclusive)

The black tarantella meets the Macedonian fanfare, and the result is an explosion of music, sounds, voices and colors that break down walls and boundaries, go beyond the seas and through villages and towns. (festival exclusive)

Enzo Avitabile has dedicated his life to the search of new sounds, incredibly vital, stirring constantly ancient and modern. Thirty years of intense career devoted entirely to the opening and hybridisation of languages and cultural exchanges, without ever abandoning its origins, even digging in the depths of their own history and realizing new interpretations and suggestions.
In this new project meets the fanfare of Kocani Orkestar, a stunning mix of traditions, ethnicities and rhythms, where the instruments used are those of the traditional Balkan band, but the influences are varied and impressive.
The Kocani moves for years on the stages of the world's most important festival and boasts numerous and prestigious collaborations. The result of the meeting is pyrotechnic, a surprise waiting to be discovered.

Giuseppe Grassi, accordion
Ilaria Mignoni, violin
Enrico Ambrosio, voice, dance
Sara Pierleoni, voice
Vincenzo Marinucci, oboe, tambourine, guitar

Incantatori di Tarante offer famous pieces of Salento's pinches and original songs of the group, that are characterized by the obsessive and unbridled rhythm of the powerful tambourines, of the guitars, of the harmonica, of the accordion, of the flute and violin, of the warm voices and the overwhelming dance of the dancers of pinches tarantula.
Stars of the show are the skins of the tambourines and percussions, the vibrant pizzicato of the violin, the poignant melodies of the wind, the melancholic harmonies of the guitars, the voices of Salento and the banging feet, dancing naked in contact with the ground, taking from it the same primordial energy that unleashes our passion towards the pinch and the magical ritual of tarantism.
Incantatori di tarante arise as part of the musical group of the University of Urbino, then performing in squares throughout Italy.
Energy, theatrical choreographic and musical culture are the elements that distinguish the group, with the head in Urbino, and the heart in Salento.
