Vivi il Festival

The Festival dei Due Mondi offers a wide range of fringe initiatives that stimulate the relationship between the event, the spectator and the local territory, fostering new possibilities for dialogue and encounter.

We are the Festival

Schools meet the Festival dei Due Mondi

 

Now in its twelfth edition, this project aims to stimulate local primary and secondary school children and introduce them to the history of the Festival, its locations and its stages. Its mission is to show young and very young people how the city, the territory and its community are inseparably linked.

 

Students of Spoleto’s secondary schools will lead guided tours of the Teatro Nuovo Gian Carlo Menotti and of the exhibition Frammenti di un percorso teatrale (Fragments of a theatrical journey) for young people from primary and secondary schools. Their experiences will be recounted through an essay, to be presented at Spoleto65, together with a second essay on gender equality.

 

This initiative has been a great success over the years and is an opportunity to rediscover the city through stories, memories, documents and archive material, as well as an opportunity to experience the Festival in the first person and contribute to its realisation.

Secret Spoleto

An exploration of the city’s hidden corners, curiosities, beauty and unknown stories, through which visitors will discover extraordinary works of art. The tour is organised by the Associazione Amici di Spoleto Onlus. Routes accompanied by tastings of Trebbiano Spoletino and other local products.

 

Saturday 25 June | The Crypt of the Patron and Monumental Cemetery of Spoleto – meeting at 10 a.m. at Piazzale San Ponziano, via S. Salvatore Basilica, 2 | Spoleto

 

Colle Ciciano has been a sacred place since ancient times, which can be testified by the presence of a pre-Roman burial site. The slopes of the site are home to the ancient crypt of San Ponziano, the remains of a Micaelico therapeutic sanctuary and the 18th-century Monumental Cemetery, a place for the burial of nobles that is immersed in the sacred silence of its cypress trees.

 

Wednesday 29 June | Villa Redenta and its Mysterious Park – meeting at 10 am at Villa Redenta, via di Villa Redenta, 1 | Spoleto

 

Just outside the 14th-century city walls stands the neoclassical Villa Redenta. Built on the remains of a Roman settlement and lived in by important noble families over the centuries, the villa is surrounded by a lush, mysterious park filled with obelisks, mithraea, grottoes, sundials and centuries-old trees.

 

Saturday 09 July | The Secret Waters of Spoleto, among sulphurous wells, fountains and nymphaea – meeting at 10 a.m. at the Casina dell’Ippocastano, via Giacomo Matteotti, 6 | Spoleto

 

Water is Spoleto’s eternal source of life. An itinerary to discover a city that has protected more than 50 public fountains and springs within its walls since the 14th century. Passing through the ancient mediaeval quarters we will discover an ancient vein of sulphurous water, courtyards and fountains of the city’s noble palaces, nymphaeums and a still active spring on Colle Sant’Elia.

 

Sunday 10 July | Clitunno Spring and its Temple – meet at 10 a.m. at the Fonti del Clitunno Park, via Flaminia, 7 | Campello sul Clitunno

 

The source of the river Clitunno, which follows the traces of the ancient lake Clitorio, offers a fascinating journey of discovery of its limpid waters and lush vegetation that has inspired poets and travellers through the ages. You will learn about its dedication to the God Jupiter Clitunno in Roman times and immerse yourself in its early Christian temple, the Church of San Salvatore (or Tempietto sul Clitunno), which marked the birth of a new style of religious eastern architecture. The church is a World Heritage Site.

 

The fee for the Spoleto tour is €15; that for the tour of Campello sul Clitunno is €20. An aperitif with typical products is provided at the end of each tour. Each tour lasts approximately 3 hours. Book while places available

CondiVisioni

Paths of Theatrical Mediation

 

curated by

Lorella Natalizi and Mauro Pietrini

Aimed at students and adults, the theatrical mediation project includes a series of appointments aimed at preparing audiences to see the show, encourage engagement and stimulate a critical capacity.

 

CondiVisioni Senior

Staying for the first time or simply returning to Spoleto during the Festival dei due Mondi is the way to become a witness of beauty, an aware spectator of a city with a stratified history starting from its walls, streets, buildings and the many theatres where art in all its many forms opens up to the spectator’s gaze. Sharing Senior is the appointment of every weekend for passionate and/or curious tourists. The meetings will take place at the Terrazza Gattapone, a suggestive space located in the Hotel Gattapone in Spoleto from which one can enjoy a splendid panorama. It will be an opportunity both to prepare for the viewing of the shows and to encourage the involvement of participants and stimulate their critical sense. Finally, the initiative will enable the spectators to feel part of the experience, not only through the materials and stimuli provided by the theatre mediators, but with the awareness that they are active and responsive users of the theatrical experience.

 

Participation in the “CondiVisioni Senior” theatre mediation meetings is free of charge.

 

Places are limited – Registration compulsory.
