TORINO JAZZ FESTIVAL
A great tale about jazz and its vibes where music, art, dance, theatre, books and much more will meet this year in conjunction with the Milan Expo and the 70th anniversary of the Liberation, when jazz returned to our country following the vetoes against black music imposed by fascism. In various places, from 28 May to 2 June.
THE EXHIBIT OF THE SHROUD
"The greatest love" is the slogan of the exhibit of the Shroud 2015 and directly recalls the words of Jesus: There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends
The slogan is indicative of the style and themes with which the pilgrimage to the Shroud, from 19 April to 24 June, is characterised: the discovery of the "neighbour", the opportunity to give and receive friendship – that is, the genuine encounter between living people.
INTERPLAY/15: INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF CONTEMPORARY DANCE
From 23rd May to 12th June, the fifteenth edition of this festival will take place across various locations, with a heavy focus on the new languages of contemporary dance and a strong calling on the international scene, without removing its focus or support from the more important and relevant national companies, providing a multitude of choreographic aesthetics and languages.
LEONARDO DA VINCI. IL VOLTO
Leonardo da Vinci’s Self-Portrait, sanguine (red chalk) drawing on paper kept at Turin’s Royal Library, is exhibited on an exceptional basis during the period of Exposition of the Shroud, as part of an itinerary on the manner in which European artists began, precisely during Leonardo’s generation, to portray themselves in their capacity as intellectual yardstick of the world. At Palazzo Madama’s Senate Hall, from 24 April to 2 June.
