The summer cultural review was created by our former director Roberto Farroni in 2002 to bring together the arts and all the senses, and to welcome more of the general public into the museum. A long journey that has seen us flourish together with our audiences of loyal friends.


Wednesday 14 July at 9.30 pm
Giorgio Comaschi in Ma come siamo messi?
(But how are we doing?)

With musical accompaniment and sonic digressions by Maestro Valentino Corvino.
The tics of our age, the manias, the new myths, the monsters, the fears, the delusions of a changed world. All narrated in an hour of light monologues combined with musical suggestions, some serious, some comical. From the virus to vaccines, from Instagram to the power of social media, from D'Urso to Fedez, and, not least, online meetings and their backgrounds.

Scalinatella, the Neapolitan song from villanella to rock-blues

An exciting journey into the world of Neapolitan music which has had an enormous influence on both artists and listeners. The programme highlights the developments in the musical writing of this great artistic people – from the villanelle of the 1600s, to the first tarantella, and then on to the classic songs and to today’s blues-rock – and illustrates the principal themes that continue to inspire: Naples itself, America and the search for work, love, the criminal underworld, lost innocence.

Luca Violini in the RadioTeatro show
Destinatario sconosciuto (Unknown recipient)

Text by Katherine Kressmann Taylor.
Literary consultant Francesco Cardinali.
Sound and Lights Riccardo Vitali.
Introduced by Lucilla Niccolini.

A literary event, an epistolary narrative that unfolds between Germany and America in the early 1930s, that tells the story of Martin, a German, and Max, an American Jew, two close friends and business associates, whose relationship will be a victim of the cruel ideological madness that Nazism was creating. A sentimental and instructive dialogue that begins with a deep friendship and gradually makes us discover how evil can insinuate itself into people’s lives and change their destiny.
