5 Simona Weller. Maschere in città, 2010 acquarello su carta, 28 x 22 cm. Simona Weller, who studied at the proper academic art institutions in Rome, travelled extensively during her student years in Thailand, India, Egypt, Spain getting ever more intrigued and learning from foreign sign languages and marks. Alien lettering and writing, weathered inscription on Roman ruins, delected her eye in their manifold, often impenetrable manifestations. In the late 1960s she became involved in the feminist movement and put together a deeply informative volume about women artists called “Il Complesso di Michelangelo” (1976). She exhibited widely in Italy and at the Venice Biennale in 1978, ever enriching her pictorial vocabulary, mostly insisting on marks and lettering in varying configurations, fragments of words, mosaics of phrases, in other words the painted alphabet or written paint: “Pittura scrittura”. Oddly Novelli, Gallian, Twombly are not mentioned in reviews of her work but rather her adherence to Seurat’s way of splitting colour, and to Balla and Dorazio. Though she has varied her styles over the years the handsome aura of her Pittura Scrittura periods rises over everything and are her happiest inventions.

cover art Twelve new covers Simona Weller Edith Schloss Dear readers, You may have noticed that recently some of our covers were designed by some especially arresting artists. Mary Wilsey, the editor, asked me to approach them. Trained as “fine artists”, they rose to the challenge of tackling a commercial medium –“cover art” – its particular demands of size, colour, placement, outlay and specifically its content. Wanted in Rome was to offer space to Romans, or people living in Rome, to interpret their complicated city – one of the most fantastic collages of history, in any way they please, on their own terms, to a general and not a specialist public. As a painter and writer I chose colleagues and friends I knew who did not just sit musing in their studios but mixed with the maddening crowd, right out there, fighting for space in galleries, while also being keenly aware of the international scene and often happily merged with it – in other words those who are engaged and deserve recognition. I confess that to me the New Yorker magazine is the example of superb cover art: it is the first to catch the eye on a newsstand, coffee table or office desk. It prides itself on class and wit. Of course it has existed since the 1920s and has vast advertising capital behind it and would be nothing without its peculiar New York humour, but in our little ways, I think it’s the best model to strive after. Though here in Rome the echoes of history drift around us, as wide awake fine artists, we are open to a variety of styles: the cover girls and boys of “Wanted” range from the plainly figurative to broody surrealism; from abstract to near-abstract and sheer painterliness, most often to neo-expressionism which used to be called transvanguardia – all solemn, funny, wicked and true. In the maze of today’s installation art, the sea of photography, the grisly and costly super-inventions, we give you painters who through trouble and contemplation, with work-a-day tools and medium, have decoyed and ensnared what they have seen, the happy moment. Truly they are committed. 16 February 2011

Real role models for women


he latest scandals surrounding the life of Italy’s prime minister are promoting one image of Italian women. But there is another one. As the dynamic head of Confindustria, Emma Marcegaglia pointed out in a television interview: “Most of us get up early, work hard all day and go to bed early.” Berlusconi’s look-alike women, whose names are too numerous to remember – and if we were up-to-date with them today we would be out-of-date tomorrow – are young, good looking, long-haired (dark or fair) and usually provocative. Most of them don’t have steady jobs, seem to be in difficulties of one sort or another and have financial problems. They have plenty of time, and transport available, to follow the prime minister around, whether to summit conferences abroad or just to evening events at Arcore, Berlusconi’s house close to Milan, in the province of Monza. It is probably true to say that these women get up late, hardly work at all and go to bed very, very late. Is this snap-shot of Berlusconi’s women – the one that is grabbing the headlines in the Italian and foreign media – really the new role model for Italy’s women of today? It is sad to feel that lists are necessary. Nor should women need to be singled out. Why do people write about women painters, women authors, women politicians, women doctors, when to write about men painters, men authors, men politicians or men doctors would seem absurd? However as so many people seemed fixed on these “bimbos” – as they are sometimes called – perhaps it is worth highlighting other women, many of whom are already known abroad, some of whom are now making their way. Marcegaglia, as head of the industrialists’ powerful confederation, Confindustria, is moving into the vacuum left by the government’s evident lack of economic policy. The same is true of Susanna Camusso, who has recently taken over the presidency of Italy’s largest trades’ union federation, CGIL. She has only been in the job for a few months and is already proving a foil for Fiat’s chief executive officer, Sergio Marchionne. At the Bank of Italy Anna Maria Tarantola, the only woman on the board, is reforming the selection process to make it fairer for women, whom she believes miss out on appointments because they are less inclined than men to take risks. On the legal front Ilda Boccassini has been prosecuting the mafia and terrorists for years, as well as corrupt politicians, most famously in the Mani Pulite scandals of the 1990s. Silvana Arbia as registrar of the International Criminal Court is its principal administrative officer. Another cutting-edge legal mind is Giulia Bongiorno who has defended Giulio Andreotti and Gianfranco Fini successfully and has made a name defending sports’ celebrities. In the world of politics, the Radical Party’s Emma Bonino is best known abroad for her time as a very determined European Commissioner for consumer policy and humanitarian affairs. Anna Finocchiaro is better known at home as head of the Partito Democratico (PD) in the senate. A new face to follow is Debora Serracchiani, a member of the European Parliament (MEP) for the PD, head of its section in Udine, as well as a journalist working for the successful and rel-

Bringing ancient Rome to life Margaret Stenhouse


few years ago, most people would walk past the offices of Rome’s provincial government just off Piazza Venezia on Via Quattro Novembre without a second glance. Not many people even knew that the building was called Palazzo Valentini and that it had an illustrious history, which included hosting musicians of the calibre of Handel, Scarlatti and Corelli when a previous occupant, the Marquis Francesco Maria Ruspoli, installed a sumptuously appointed theatre within its walls in the early 18th century. The name Palazzo Valentini was acquired in 1827, when it was purchased by the banker Vincenzo Valentini. He was the last private owner before the building was taken over in 1873 by Rome’s provincial government, which has been installed there ever since. An even more surprising aspect of the building’s history goes back, however, much further, to the times of imperial Rome. This has led to the installation of a fascinating museum that promises to turn a littlePalazzo Valentini’s glass floor provides a daunting known block of bureaucratic offices and departments into one of but magical walk over ancient Rome.

Archaeologists hope to finish the project by connecting the Roman houses under Palazzo Valentini directly with Trajan’s forum as they must have been in the past. The passageway exists. All that is needed is the required permit.

atively new daily, Il Fatto Quotidiano. And of course Rosy Bindi, in her uncompromising opposition to Berlusconi, is putting many men politicians to shame. Science is dominated by Nobel prize-winner Rita Levi Montalcini, now a life senator, who discovered the nerve growth factor (NGF), and most television viewers know Margherita Hack who has managed to make astrophysics a household word. In sport two outstanding successes are swimmer Federica Pellegrini and the tireless tennis player Francesca Schiavoni whose endurance in the Australian Open recently left audiences aghast. Emma Dante is sweeping the stage in opera and theatre productions. And following in Carla Fracci’s footsteps are the younger dancers Alessandra Ferri and Viviana Durante. Who to choose in design and fashion? Silvia Venturini Fendi is a Fendi, which speaks for itself, and Frida Giannini, who comes from the Fendi background, now controls almost everything at Gucci. Dacia Maraini author, Franca Rame actress, Lina Wertmuller film director, and so the list goes on. But finally to add a bit of light relief, there is writer, actress and television comic/satirist Luciana Littizzetto. If you don’t know her, then tune in to Che Tempo che Fa on RAI3.

Rome Art in Memory 6. 30 Jan-3 April. The International Day of Memory, established by the United Nations in memory of the victims of the Holocaust, goes beyond remembrance to make sure that new generations know this history.

La regina del moderno. 11 March-3 July 2011. The Complesso del Vittoriano starts its new season with this major exhibition by the Polish art déco painter Tamara de Lempicka (1898-1980). This extravagant and cosmopolitan painter was one of the exponents of the art déco period. Her style re-elaborates and mixes elements of French and Russian cubism and futurism with elements of Italian painting and German and Polish realism. Her female nudes portray emancipated, free, independent and transgressive women. De Lempicka was born into a wealthy family of professionals. During the Russian Revolution in 1917 she escaped with her first husband, the Russian lawyer Tadeusz Lempicki, to Paris, where her clean, elegant and sensual art déco style was influenced by French cubism. In 1925 she had her first major exhibition in Milan and soon became the most fashionable portrait painter of her generation. This sophisticated and elegant artist loved portraying members of the haute bourgeoisie and aristocracy as well as female nudes. During the 1920s she was part of the bohemian circle that included Pablo Picasso, Jean Cocteau and André Gide. She was

also a part of bisexual women’s artistic groups along with Violet Trefusis and Colette and her bisexuality aroused considerable social scandal until she married her second husband Baron Kuffner in 1933. With Kuffner she moved to the United States, where she became the so-called Baroness with a Brush, as well as the favourite artist of Hollywood celebrities. Complesso del Vittoriano. Via di S. Pietro in Carcere, Rome, tel. 066780664. Mon-Thurs 09.30-19.30, Fri-Sat 09.3023.30, Sun 09.30-20.30. NEW Gabrielle Bolzoni Caravaggio a Roma. Una Vita dal Vero. 11 Feb-15 May. Among the initiatives organised for the fourth centenary of the death of Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, the state archives display original documents covering the years that Caravaggio spent in Rome (1595/96-1606). Over 30 restored volumes reveal central episodes and news about the private life and artistic career of the great painter. On display are original and unpublished documents, which testify to the arrival of Caravaggio in the capital at the age of 25 and not 20 as believed so far, and his lodging in Via della Scrofa at the shop of Lorenzo Carli, a Sicilian painter. These until-now unknown details centre on the intellectual, cultural and artistic environment frequented by Caravaggio in Rome, which throw new light on his life. This survey, conducted by seven young art historians, is a sort of detective story in a succession of anecdotes, testimonials, reconstructions by registers, protocols, complaints, trials, topographic plans and tenancy contracts. From these documents emerges a unique period of Caravaggio’s life characterised by key encounters in a kaleidoscope of relationships. Original documents are placed next to some of Caravaggio’s masterpieces as well as works by other artists of the time. Particularly meaningful is the choice to hold this exhibition close to the church of S. Ivo alla Sapienza, built by Francesco Borromini between 1642 and 1660, where many of the narrated events took place. Guided tours for maximum 30 people take place every 30 minutes, which offer visitors the exceptional occasion of re-living the urban atmosphere experienced by Caravaggio in Rome. Archivio di Stato.

Europunk, the visual culture of punk, 1976-8 80. 21 Jan-20 March. Born 35 years ago punk continues to influence most art and cultural forms, from music to literature, from visual arts to fashion. No exhibition or publication has yet been devoted to the artistic dimension of this movement in itself. This exhibition fills the void. It focuses on punk culture in Europe in the second half of the 1970s, showing the revolutionary change of imagery created by graphic designers, illustrators, image makers and agitators. Rather than telling the story of the musical influences of punk it shows the works of those artists who, while strongly denying they were making art, wanted their images to change the world. The exhibition gathers over 550 items, some of which are well-celebrated, others unfamiliar or not seen for decades, from private and public collections: clothes, fanzines, posters, flyers, drawings and collages, record covers, films. Symbolically, the event starts with the first appearance on television of the Sex Pistols, in 1976 – the year punk was born. It also features four site-specific projects especially conceived by Francis Baudevin, Stéphane Dafflon, Philippe Decrauzat and Scott King.

Opera Notes The production of Samson and Dalila at the opera house in Trieste is the one staged in Bologna in 2008, a monolithic and menacing interpretation of the biblical story. The English tenor Ian Storey sings the part of Samson. In Palermo La Gioconda returns to stage for the first time in 40 years, with Daniela Dessì, who at the height of her career and maturity is singing the lead role for the first time.

This production of Samson and Dalila first went on stage in Bologna in 2008.

l Teatro Lirico “Giuseppe Verdi” di Trieste mette in scena Samson et Dalila di Camille Saint-Saëns (18-26 febbraio). È una produzione che è stata già presentata a Bologna nel 2008 per la regia di Michal Znaniecki, che ha realizzato una scena fissa, monolitica e incombente, all’interno della quale si racconta il conflitto d’amore tra Samson e Dalila, che riflette lo scontro tra le diverse culture a cui appartengono. Protagonista maschile sarà Ian Storey, già applaudito interprete del Tristan un Isolde scaligero di Patrice Chéreau; sua partner, seduttrice e distruttrice, sarà Elena Bocharova (che sostituisce l’annunciata Luciana D’Intino). Gli altri interpreti saranno il promettente baritono Claudio Sgura (Il sommo sacerdote) e il tenore Alessandro Spina (Abimélech), dirigerà Boris Brott. La storia narrata in Samson et Dalila è tratta dal libro dei Giudici della Bibbia; fu probabilmente questo soggetto, unito a un certo carattere oratoriale, a non piacere agli impresari dell’epoca che ne evitarono la messa in scena, fino a quando l’opera andò in scena tradotta in tedesco (e per le pressioni di Liszt) a Weimar nel 1877 con successo trionfale, che ne garantì così l’apprezzamento e la rapida diffusione.

a Gioconda di Amilcare Ponchielli (24 febbraio-3 marzo). È un’opera di passaggio, che da una parte guarda alla tradizione, con l’uso di belle meloIl Teatro Massimo di Palermo propone La die e sapiente scrittura, e dall’altra apre al moderno con l’impiego di un’orchestrazione ricca ed elaborata. L’opera fu il secondo titolo della prima stagione del Massimo nel 1897, con un giovane Enrico Caruso nelle vesti del protagonista maschile principale. Adesso torna nel teatro palermitano dopo quarantuno anni dall’ultimo allestimento e si annuncia come un evento, che ha il suo centro in Daniela Dessì: un soprano affermato e apprezzato, che è all’apice della carriera e della maturità artistica e che affronta per la prima volta il difficile e temibile ruolo di Gioconda. Con lei altri nomi noti del panorama lirico internazionale: Salvatore Licitra (Enzo), Marianne Cornetti (Laura), Alberto Mastromarino (Barnaba), Alexander Vinogradov (Badoero) ed Elisabetta Fiorillo (la cieca).

petitions and studied modern dance in New York. She established the first modern dance company in the People’s Republic, the Beijing Modern Dance Ensemble, in 1996. She now leads her own company, Jin Xing Dance Theatre, which has received much international acclaim and she says she is on a mission to develop contemporary dance culture in China. The choreography draws on Chinese and contemporary dance, and the results sparkle. Peeping Tom. 26, 27 Feb. In 32, rue Vandenbranden. Choreographers Gabriela Carrizo and Franck Chartier of avant-garde Belgian dance company Peeping Tom examine family relations and intergenerational conflict with an international cast of contemporary dancers, a contortionist and a

classically trained singer. 32, rue Vandenbranden was reportedly inspired by Shohei Imamura’s 1983 film The Ballad of Narayama, which tells the story of a village where everyone who reaches the age of 70 must go to a mountaintop to die. The action takes place in a cluster of rickety mobile homes under a wide-open sky – an appropriate backdrop for exploring the characters’ interior emotional landscape. Compagnia Virgilio Sieni. 26-27 Feb. In Tristi Tropici, choreography by Virgilio Sieni. This work is freely inspired by Tristes Tropiques by Claude Lévi-Strauss.

Rosas/Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker. 18-19 Feb. In En Atendant, choreography by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker. In this work of 2010, the Belgian choreographer takes yet another step in her trademark exploration of the combination of music and dance. After Bach and Webern, The Beatles and Mahler, this time her starting point is the “Ars Subtilior”: a complex and intellectual form of polyphonic music from the 14th century that is based on dissonance and contrast. Ars Subtilior developed on the ruins of the plague and the Church at a time when the social, political and religious pillars of mediaeval society were fragmenting. De Keersmaeker remarks that “Nowadays this upheaval seems more relevant than ever. In the light of today’s increasingly confusing events and the complexity of the choices we face, the question of our mortality and physicality is becoming ever more crucial.” Jin Xing Dance Theatre Shanghai. 22 Feb.

By Chiara Guidi and Scott Gibbons. This music drama with animated cartoons has been conceived and directed by Chiara Guidi who has worked alongside the composer Scott Gibbons for the creation of the original sound and music. It’s an exploration of a “fairy-tale” like universe in which a child journeys through life in search of his father and faces a series of initiation rites and processes on the road to adulthood. In Italian. Teatro Palladium, Largo B. Romano 8, tel. 0657067761, 0657067766, 2X page 15 Angels in America. 8-20 Feb. By Tony Ksuhner, with Elio De Capitani, Ida Marinelli, Elena Russo Arman, directed by Ferdinando Bruni and Elio De Capitani. Angels in America is the first major work of playwright Tony Kushner, and its astounding success has turned the man and his writing into cultural icons of the late-20th century. The work has been described as ‘’a turning point in the history of gay drama, the history of American drama, and of American literary culture.” The plot unfolds over great distances of time and place, involves many characters, and more than one story line. Two complete plays form the entire plot: the first part, Millennium Approaches and its second instalment, Perestroika. For all its intricacies, however, the play’s plot is quite simple. It is the story of two couples whose relationships are disintegrating, set in America in the 1980s against a backdrop of greed, conservatism, sexual politics, and the discovery of an awful new disease: AIDS. It is this backdrop that gives Angels in America its magnitude and sets it apart from other love stories.
