The Festival of Two Worlds in Spoleto (Perugia), also called the Spoleto Festival or Spoleto Festival of 2 Worlds, is one of the oldest and most important festivals in Umbria, as well as a world-renowned event and for a long time unique in its kind in Italy. The Spoleto Festival was born in 1958 on the initiative of the master composer Gian Carlo Menotti and its vision: to combine two cultures and two very different artistic worlds, the European and the American (hence the name), dedicated to art in all its form and expression. And set up an event that was international as possible. Live and combine the art in all its manifestations, therefore, traditional and innovative, all on the same site. The Festival of Two Worlds has been and continues to be one of the most important cultural events and world-wide innovative. More famous abroad than at home, it is unrivaled even in Europe that they can share the location and the quality of the events they described his many years of life. To grasp the thickness just think of the many big names that over time have honored with their interventions the long history of the Festival. Really impressive the quality of the artists who took part in the first editions: the likes of Luchino Visconti caliber, Romolo Valli, Thomas Shippers, Sviatoslav Richter, Zubin Mehta, Lila De Nobili, Roberto Rossellini, Franco Zeffirelli, Pier Luigi Pizzi, Margot Fonteyn, Rudolf Nureyev, Albert, Jerome Robbins, John Butler, Paul Taylor, Carla Fracci, Pietro Tosi, Paolo Stoppa, Renato Guttuso, Henry Moore, Bucknunster Fuller, Alessandro Fersen. It is the most fruitful years and maximum artistic expression, which lay the foundation for future success for the event. Menotti offers a multifaceted program with the revival of forgotten melodramas as The Friar Innamurato by Pergolesi, The Master of the Chapel of Cimarosa, and experimental performances and impactful as The Scarf by Hoiby, The Baron's Game Bucchi, atonal experiences as Wozzeck by A.Berg. In addition, world premieres, rarities and more, up to poetry ... even with traditional furnishing, between the sacred and the profane. In 1968, then, with the passage of the artistic direction at the critical Bongianchino, the festival will be more open to innovation and experimentation. 1968 is also the year in which Horovitz presents a show with a young Al Pacino. Given the long history, it is hard to decide which events to consider innovative and which not, because all issues have attracted media attention. However, the first major event which then has effectively launched a new way of exposure was the exhibition Sculptures in the City program in the edition of 1962 and curated by Giovanni Carandente: the greatest sculptors of the world were invited to Spoleto to exhibit their works not indoors, but in the streets and squares of the city, creating in fact a veritable museum of contemporary art in the open air, set up in an environment rich in history. At the end of the exhibition, some works were donated to the city remaining in their original locations where they still are. Of all, stands the Teodelapio Alexander Calder (opposite the railway station), which is rightly considered the world's first monumental sculpture. During the 17 days of the Festival, which usually starts from the last Friday in June, alternate ballet, opera, painting, conferences, concerts, theater, conferences, church music, readings, puppet shows and contemporary art. The duality is also always been present in the bill: in addition to exclusive, unusual and original avant-garde performances are staged works and works respectful of the classical tradition. At the Festival of 2 Worlds, between the Teatro Nuovo, the Teatro Caio Melisso, the Roman Theatre, the Theatre of the six, the monumental complex of San Nicolo', the Cortile della Rocca Albornoz, the church of St. Euphemia, the auditorium and the Star Piazza del Duomo (also home to the traditional closing concert), it's been some of the greatest artists of the '900 as Rudolf Nureyev, Carla Fracci, Luciano Pavarotti and Ken Russell. Also note as the Spoleto Festival has inspired two similar events across the border: the Spoleto Festival USA in Charleston, South Carolina (and twinned with Spoleto, ed), founded in 1977 and directed for 17 years just by Gian Carlo Menotti. Moreover, the Melbourne International Arts Festival, the Australian competition founded in 1986 and directed for three years always from the master, where administration and billboards are, however, totally different and independent.

UMBRIA


Everchanging, untouched landscapes in the green of winding valleys make Umbria a region that will never fail to amaze. This region comprises mainly hills, mountains, hollows and plains and extends along the Tiber's central basin. At the heart of the boot, it is the only region with no coastline;. It includes Lake Trasimeno, central Italy's largest lake. The area still has the remains of Etruscan settlements, particularly around Castiglione del Lago, where the loveliness of the natural landscape combines with the romanticism and stillness of the lake. Moving on from the two lakes, we come to the Cascate delle Marmore waterfalls near Terni, one of the most beautiful in Europe. The waters dive into the River Nera with a spectacular 165 metre , and are surrounded by lush vegetation. This is the spot sports lovers who enjoy canoeing, kayaking, and other water fun head for. Still in the province of Terni, tourists looking to get the feel of Umbria should not miss out on two little gems: one of them is linked to history and the other to the territory. Carsulae is an ancient Roman town traversed by the ancient Via Flaminia, where important public buildings have been discovered. We can still see the remains of the S. Damiano Arch, with particularly beautiful and fascinating surroundings. The other gem, closely linked to the area's make-up is the Dunnarobba fossil forest, a rare example of a forest that existed 3 million years ago, with very well preserved tree trunks set in a lunar landscape. The provinces of the region are Perugia (regional capital) and Terni.
