FESTIVAL DELLA BELLEZZA 2019 – THE SOUL AND THE CONTOURS
“If you went in search of it, you would not find the boundaries of the soul,
though you travelled every road-so deep
The Festival della Bellezza (Festival of Beauty) 2019 will take place from 28 May to 16 June, on the historical stages of Verona culture: Roman theatre, Giardino Giusti, Teatro Filarmonico. A buildup that will have its zenith in the Arena on August 26, with the first worldwide debut of the ballet Romeo & Juliet by Prokofiev, interpreted by Sergei Polunin.
The overarching theme “the soul and the contours” will be dissected and sublimated through the many branches of art and thought: music, literature, philosophy, art, theatre, cinema.
To generate the disorientation necessary for the investigation, the Festival has, as usual, enlisted interpreters accustomed to transmitting deep and provocative messages (Vittorio Sgarbi, Massimo Cacciari, Umberto Galimberti), to seducing audiences (Laura Morante, Fabrizio Gifuni, Alessio Boni), to making the strings of the Spirit vibrate (Vinicio Capossela, Morgan, Nicola Piovani). A festival enhanced by iconic international artists and iconoclasts such as Emir Kusturica and Patti Smith, and up and coming such as the young pianist Alexandra Dogvan.
This is only a preview of some of the personalities that will tread the boards, the complete programme can be found here: Programma_Festivaldellabellezza_2019.
For us at Zanolli, embracing and supporting the manifestations of human culture is instinctive. As maintained by Professor Umberto Galimberti in his treatise “Man in the age of technology”, the humanist science is indispensable for modern man to tame technology instead of letting oneself be dominated by it. We share this principle since 1952: we design technologies for cooking food, nourishing ourselves with culture for this mission.
FESTIVAL GENIUS AND INSANITY
“The genius simply lives upstairs from insanity”, or on the same floor, but knows how to go down the stairs.
Hypersensitive, caught into sudden whirlpools, run over by a wave aiming at the unknown.
Wandering about non-existent roads on a metaphysical antenna.
Leaning over the edge of the invisible.
At the customs of the absurd, with no part with art.
“Nothing to declare, except the…”.
The eccentricity scratches the mundane spirit with the claw of infinity.
