Programme

The project by Anagoor Et manchi pietà is the outcome of an idea to create a multimedial, multidisciplinary live videoart/music performanceBased on the art of the painter Artemisia Gentileschi (1593 – ca.1656), it explores some of the details of the art and music of the Italian early baroque period, highlighting in particular the creative specificity and emotional impact.
Artemisia, the daughter of Orazio Gentileschi – one of the first Italian Caravaggisti painters – was remembered until a good few years ago mainly in relation to her rape trial.  She has had to wait more than three hundred years to be fully recognised as a painter in her own right.
Tonight’s performance offers Monteverdi, Rossi, Strozzi, Kapsberger, Trabaci, Merula, Landi, Castello, and Fontana, with the soprano Roberta Invernizzi and the  Accademia d’Arcadia, playing original instruments, in different sections of the film, shown on a large screen.
In the second part of the evening the art critic Vittorio Sgarbi will look at Gentileschi’s work and the artistic environment of her times.

This concert is part of the thematic area Music and Literature • Music and Art• Musica and Cinema.
