Tiziano Scarpa e Debora Petrina: Dove vai quando sei fuori di te

Venezia, 24/09/2019, alle ore 18 nell’Aula Magna dell’Ateneo Veneto uno spettacolo con testi e musiche inedite

Scrive Tiziano Scarpa: “L’installazione di EDMUND DE WAAL intitolata PSALM riguarda in vari modi il dell’esilio. La Library of Exile, allestita nell’Aula Magna dell’Ateneo Veneto, è un cubo-biblioteca bianchissimo, dove leggere, meditare, sentirsi al tempo stesso accolti ed esclusi, in un ambiente confortevole e alieno. In questo luogo modificato, come un iperspazio a più di tre dimensioni, sono stati organizzati incontri, conferenze, concerti sul tema dell’ESILIO. Shaul Bassi ha chiesto a me e Debora Petrina di inventarci qualcosa su questo tema. È nato così DOVE VAI QUANDO SEI FUORI DI TE: musiche e testi che dialogano, si rispondono a vicenda. Debora canta le sue stupende canzoni nuove, tutte in italiano, eseguendole al pianoforte. E dal pianoforte preparato tira fuori suoni inauditi per sorreggere le mie parole ritmate, composte in agili settenari e ottonari percussivi. ”

Storie di esilio e di successo: greco e greci a Venezia 1003 487 Barbara Del Mercato

Storie di esilio e di successo: greco e greci a Venezia

Un nuovo evento nel programma culturale legato alla mostra psalm di Edmund de Waal  (8 maggio – 29 settembre 2019) 

Venezia, 23/09/2019, con inizio alle ore 16 presso la Sala Tommaseo dell’Ateneo Veneto: Tavola rotonda sul tema Storie di esilio e di successo – Greco e greci a Venezia

Nell’ambito delle iniziative culturali promosse dallo scrittore ed artista Edmund de Waal e dal Center for Humanities and Social Change dell’Università Ca’ Foscari Venezia, a margine della mostra psalm, sui temi della traduzione, dell’esilio, dei confini, delle migrazioni e della diaspora, si svolgerà -presso l’Ateneo Veneto – una tavola rotonda dedicata all’esilio dei greci a Venezia in seguito alla caduta di Costantinopoli (1453).

Lo sviluppo delle competenze scientifiche e letterarie dell’epoca ebbe un notevole incremento grazie a tale fenomeno storico-politico, che contribuì in modo significativo alla conoscenza diretta della lingua greca. In seguito all’esodo di persone e di libri il mondo occidentale conobbe una vera e propria rivoluzione culturale. A parlare della fortuna della diffusione della lingua greca a Venezia nell’età dell’invenzione della stampa e del ruolo del greco e dei greci a Venezia saranno Niccolò Zorzi (docente di Filologia bizantina, Università di Padova); Margherita Losacco (docente di Filologia Classica, Università di Padova); Konstantinos Staikos (storico del libro, Atene), Marco Vigevani (presidente dell’agenzia letteraria The Italian Literary Agency).

Coordina Caterina Carpinato (docente di lingua e letteratura neogreca, Università Ca’ Foscari).

L’iniziativa è inserita nel Cartellone d’Autunno “Tempo Forte” 2019, per la promozione delle relazioni culturali fra Italia e Grecia.

Noo Saro-Wiwa

in conversation with Steven Varni

Presents Looking for Transwonderland (Granta Books 2012, Translated in Italian  by Caterina Barboni as In cerca di Transwonderland, 66th&2nd, 2015)

Noo Saro-Wiwa was brought up in England, but every summer she was dragged back to visit her father in Nigeria — a country she viewed as an annoying parallel universe where she had to relinquish all her creature comforts and sense of individuality. After her father, activist Ken Saro-Wiwa, was killed there, she didn’t return for several years. Recently, she decided to come to terms with the country her father given his life for.

Saro-Wiwa travels from the exuberant chaos of Lagos to the calm beauty of the eastern mountains; from the eccentricity of a Nigerian dog show to the decrepit kitsch of the Transwonderland Amusement Park. She explores Nigerian Christianity, delves into the country’s history of slavery, examines the corrupting effect of oil, and ponders the huge success of Nollywood.

She finds the country as exasperating as ever, and frequently despairs at the corruption and inefficiency she encounters. But she also discovers that it si far more beautiful and varied than she had ever imagined, with its captivating thick tropical rainforest and ancient palaces and monuments. Most engagingly of all, she introduces us to the many people she meets, and gives us hilarious insights into the African character, its passion, wit and ingenuity.

Please find here the complete cultural program organised around Edmund de Waal’s psalm.
