From 7 to 17 July, between Torino and the Savoy Residences at Agliè, Racconigi, Rivoli, Stupinigi and the Venaria Reale, the sixteenth edition of Teatro a Corte is hosting 19 theatre companies from 5 European countries – Italy, France, Spain, Austria and the UK – and from Israel, in a multidisciplinary event ranging from dance to theatre to contemporary circus, from performance art to installation, from firework display to new magic.
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.
