MITO SETTEMBREMUSICA - X EDIZIONE
The slogan for the 2016 MITO is Fathers and Children
, which fits well with an event that has a long past but is open to the new. This year offers two major changes: the first is that MITO – in Torino and Milan from 2 to 22 September – focuses on classical music, and the second is that the festival will now have a theme, a new one each year, expressed in different ways by each of the approximately160 concerts scheduled.
In the urban outskirts along the backbone of redeveloped industrial architecture and archaeology, Todays
returns from 26 to 28 August. The 2015 festival turned Torino into an open-air stage: for 2016 there is art, attitude and music beyond compare. Todays
is a festival that challenges conventional styles and hackneyed clichés and aims for another level that leads to new outcomes and eschews repetition and predictability.
WONDERS OF THE TSARS. THE ROMANOVS AND THE IMPERIAL PALACE OF PETERHOF
More than a hundred works of art, paintings, portraits, clothes, silver, porcelain, tapestries and other precious objects from the Imperial Palace of Peterhof, one of the most important and prestigious residences of the Romanovs. The exhibition, at the Reggia di Venaria – Sale delle Arti, first floor, from 16 July to 29 January 2017, has been organised by Elena Kalninskaia working with The Peterhof State Museum-Reserve in St Petersburg.
MARIO MERZ. NATURE IS THE BALANCE
From 4 July to 18 September, the Fondazione Merz is presenting a selection of works by Mario Merz that are deeply connected to the theme of nature: a dozen important pieces produced from the mid 1970s to the early 2000s. While provoking thought by means of the images, the exhibition primarily aims to create a poetic narrative, an imaginary tale of an eclectic artist.
ARTE ALLE CORTI – 2nd YEAR
An exhibition of contemporary art installations and sculpture distributed among the courtyards of the grand historical palaces of Torino. From 30 June to 10 November, a widespread exhibition of dynamic and mobile art presenting a group of creators of different generations, origins and styles. Nine courtyards and two gardens are involved; courtyards as galleries, as stages, as places of art, able to play their part to welcome and interact with works of art.
