È stata inaugurata presso Villa Bardini a Firenze, con la presenza del ministro dei beni culturali e del turismo Franceschini, la mostra “La Divina Commedia di Venturino Venturi”. La mostra è sostenuta e promossa da Generali Italia attraverso “Valore Cultura”. L’arte e la cultura costituiscono l’elemento fondante dell’identità del nostro Paese e la tutela e la diffusione delle attività culturali rappresentano una possibilità concreta di sviluppo per il nostro territorio. Particolarmente intensa ed apprezzata l’interpretazione di Purgatorio, Inferno e Paradiso resa magistralmente dallo spettacolo proposto da Artscena “Variazioni sulla fiamma”, attraverso il linguaggio della luce, della danza e del fuoco nelle sue infinite forme.
INTERNATIONAL SCULPTURE BIENNALE
The city of Carrara, the biggest producer of marble in the world, chose to present a big show on the occasion of the inauguration of the XIII Sculpture Biennale. In Piazza San Francesco, performed by the Duo Vision, from Cirque du Soleil, Their painted bodies among actual statues, the couple gave the crowd a perfect performance. At the beginning of the show, the artists descended among the statues by Floriano Bodini, which they perfectly resembled, they worked with actual sculptures in blue light and smoke. When they descended, almost like two of subjects of Bodini’s marble statues, it seemed as if the sculptures had come to life. The choreography is slow, where bodies meld together and reemerge in a tangle of forms dominated by balance and where the music articulates and accompanies the beginning of each movement. The duo’s displays, entirely based on the elastic harmony of the body, was created and designed by Artscena exclusively for the Biennale.
Partita del cuore
“Patita del cuore” Africa won, June 2001, a football-like match where national singers played against national drivers in the stadium “Luigi Ferraris” in Genoa. The night reunited star singers, like Eros Ramazzotti, Gianni Morandi, and Alex Britti, and others from the world of sport like Michael Schumacher and Max Biaggi. For the occasion, Artscena designed the opening ceremony for the 10th edition of the “Partita del Cuore”. It was an unforgettable time of feasting and solidarity for the 36,000 people in attendence. Presented during the night between other events and live broadcast on RAI 1 was Myriam Makeba. The game was proceeded by the presentation of the squad with a choreographed number involving 2000 children and a group of 20 Senegalese musicians.
