ITALY 2020:
CHALLENGES AND
OPPORTUNITIES OF GROWTH
Can Italy avoid seven more years of lean
cows? Yes, but only if we restart thinking
long-term. Today’s strategic decisions
will determine what Italy will be in 2020.
Italy should restore hope in the young
generations and rediscover some of its
traditional strengths.

REBIRTH OF ROME:
ITALIAN ART AND ARCHITECTURE IN THE
INTERWAR PERIOD
On the occasion of the exhibitons The
Birth of Rome (Wolfsonian, Miami)
and Italian Futurism (Guggenheim,
New York), three Italian scholars
will discuss the alliance between
art, architecture, and ideology that
defined Italian political identity
during Fascist dictatorship (1922–43).

At Volterra Maximum Security Prison,
in 1998, the director Armando
Punzo established the “Compagnia
della Fortezza”, a theatre troupe
comprised of dangerous felons and
hardcore “lifers”. For the past 6 years
Clara Vannucci has documented the
therapeutic use of method acting
in Italy’s notorious Volterra Prison,
capturing travelling inmate troupes
rehearse behind bars and perform to
sold-out crowds. Through Vannucci’s
lens we witness the powerful
transformation these men undergo trying on roles of alternate characters’
lives and in the process leaving
behind the stigma and pain of their
past regressions, albeit for a brief
moment.
Italian Cultural Institute
Andrea Zanzotto (1921-2011) is widely
considered one of the most important
Italian and European poets of the
twentieth century. Zanzotto’s poetry
has registered the profound social and
cultural changes that have transformed
postwar Italy.
Patrick Barron teaches at the University
of Massachusetts. He has received awards
from the Academy of American Poets,
the American Academy in Rome, the
Fulbright Commission, and the National
Endowment for the Arts.

“Composed directly in English during
a period of writer’s block and later
‘translated’ by the poet himself into
facing semi-independent Italian versions,
Andrea Zanzotto’s fascinating Haiku for
a Season constitutes a singular addition
to world literature: a classic poetic form
handled deftly by a master innovator
and one of Europe’s major poetic voices”
(John P. Welle, University of Notre Dame)
Winner of numerous prizes in
more than twenty national and
international piano competitions
achieving success with audience and
critics, Salvatore Gitto performed
in important Halls and Festivals all
over Italy. In September 2013 he was
invited to give a concert in honor
of King Albert II of Belgium and
Queen Paola of Liége. He worked
with composers Carmelo Chillemi,
whose some piano works he gave
the premiere in 2012, and Giuseppe
Azzarelli, whose original scene music
Gitto performed in collaboration with
the famous stage director Eugenio
Monti Colla at the Accademia
Nazionale di Santa Cecilia.
Rita Levi Montalcini, the longest
living Nobel Prize winner, died on
December 30, 2012 at the age of
103. She established her fame by
discovering the first nerve growth
factor, NGF, in the1950s. Her finding
led to the identification of many
growth factors, which have greatly
influenced developmental biology,
neuroscience, immunology and
cancer.

MAX PELLEGRINI
A tale. Max Pellegrini and Italo
Cremona
Exhibition
An exhibition focused on the last
ten years of Max Pellegrini’s work,
mostly
previously
undisplayed,
where we can find an evolution
of his poetics, towards a delicate
symbolism in which he links literary
citations to an elegant linear and
chromatic style. His personal path,
the one of an outsider enamoured
with painting, is summarized in these
large canvases, where we can see the
different inspirations and experiences
that nurtered him: psychedelia and
protest, the love for history of art
and the experiments of avant-garde,
classical knowledge and post-modern
thinking.
On view from
January 15 to February 14, 2014.
