26 October 2011 Wanted in Rome

Celebrity floral artist Symon J. Lycett designed the Punks and Patriots red carpet.

his year’s edition of the International Rome Film Festival, from 27 October - 4 November, is dedicated to the diversity of the United Kingdom’s contribution to cinema. Organised in tandem with the 55th BFI London Film Festival, Rome showcases seven newrelease British productions and screens 12 films chosen by leading figures from British cinema. The theme of Punks and Patriots has been chosen by the Fondazione Cinema per Roma Focus curator Gaia Morrione. Prior to her current role, Morrione was special events manager at the Fondazione Musica per Roma, and before this she was a long-term resident of London where she worked with various record labels and produced documentaries for independent television companies for the BBC and Channel 4. Morrione answers questions in a written interview on the occasion of the sixth edition of the festival.


1. Following previous editions dedicated to India, Brazil, the environment and Japan, why did you choose to put the United Kingdom in the spotlight this year? For years I have wanted to curate a Focus UK. I feel at home in Britain and lived in London for 15 years. And then recent events like the wedding of William and Kate, the 60th anniversary of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II, the urban riots on the streets of London, the Olympics: all of that helped me decide on a very topical choice. 2. What were the principal reasons behind the Punks & Patriots initiative and how did you come up with the original concept? The idea came to me at Soho House in London while I was meeting producers from the UK Film Council, which would soon be closed down forever. The King’s Speech had just brought in a fortune at the box office but the government still took the decision to disband the UK Film Council, a decision which, in the context of the film industry, was unpopular and seemed like a throwback to the Thatcher era… because of all of this I thought that Punks and Patriots provided the perfect common thread to reflect the contemporary cinematic situation, and not just in the United Kingdom. 3. Many of the films come directly from the London Festival, which is enjoying record attendance. After such close collaboration this year do you believe that any perceived rivalry between the two festivals is a thing of the past? The overlapping of dates created some difficulty in the past, but I wouldn’t call it “rivalry” – I don’t think there ever was any. For this edition we worked well together and hopefully will continue to do so in the future. 4. The London festival closes with Terence Davies’ movie The Deep Blue Sea the day that the Rome festival starts. Given that in the past the two events often overlapped, was there a coordinated approach this year to the timing of both festivals? No, we didn’t coordinate the dates of the two festivals, that was already decided a long time ago but it was a good thing that they didn’t clash as in previous years. We felt that passing the baton of The Deep Blue Sea, closWanted in Rome 26 October 2011


ing the London festival and opening the Rome festival was a great way to consolidate a partnership. 5. Sandra Hebron is leaving her post after nine successful years as artistic director of the London Festival. What was your working relationship like with Hebron? It has been a real pleasure to work with Sandra Hebron – she is an enlightened, sensitive, intelligent professional. 6. In your opinion, what are the highlights of the British films coming to Rome this year? Three giants of British cinema: Terence Davies, David Hare and Michael Winterbottom are flanked by four emerging filmmakers with truly remarkable work. A world-renowned video artist in the form of Douglas Gordon will curate the exhibition while Simon J. Lycett, whose work is commissioned by Britain’s royal family, will create a red carpet installation based on the Union Jack but adapted with a Punks and Patriots theme. 7. Recent blockbusters such as The King’s Speech grossed nearly €10 million in the Italian box office. Do you believe that there is a growing appreciation of British cinema in Italy, and how important a role do you think Focus UK will play in this phenomenon? Films such as The King’s Speech or Slumdog Millionaire have certainly helped to make British cinema even more popular with an Italian audience. The role of the Focus should be to promote smaller, independent films, too, or films unlikely to be distributed in Italian cinemas. The selection of the seven films in the showcase should help a wide audience to appreciate more British films and get to know talented upcoming directors such as Andrew Haigh (Weekend), Dexter Fletcher (Wild Bill), Paddy Considine (Tyrannosaur) and Jes Benstock (The British Guide To Showing Off). 8. Can you tell me about the Focus UK events in which the public is directly involved? In the Focus section there are two meetings with the public: the first with the writer Hanif Kureishi together with director David Hare, and the second with the composer Michael Nyman and director Terence Davies, all of whom speak about the Focus UK retrospective. 9. What role do you think the International Rome Film Festival plays in boosting Rome’s image in the world of international cinema, and what are your personal aspirations for the festival in the future? Thanks to its great success with the public, with more than 600,000 visitors, the festival also has important repercussions for the economy of the city and its promotion abroad. The festival offers a great mix of innovation, tourism and culture. And thanks also to the international market at the festival (The Business Street), the only film industry market in Italy, the image of Rome, already known for its historic cinematic tradition, has even more chance of being promoted abroad. I hope that everyone is convinced that given the number of visitors, the wide variety and the undisputed success of the festival, this will allow us to continue in our quest to improve constantly what we offer.

ROMAN CEILINGS: A TOP FIVE Aside from the Sistine Chapel, Rome can still boast another five spectacular ceilings ith the Baroque’s new inventory of mannerist special effects as launch pad, first on the list of ceilings is Palazzo Barberini’s Salone Grande. Here above twin staircases – one by Bernini, one by Borromini – Pietro da Cortona, third triumvir of the Roman Baroque, transforms 400 sqm of ceiling into a heaven bombinating with what must be the world’s mightiest bees, the emblems of his patron, the Barberini family. To seal the family’s claim to the papacy, cloud-topping virtues and graces abound, while Faith, Hope and Charity crown the bees with laurel, symbol of longevity. As back-up, Immortality raises a diadem of stars at the bidding of divine Providence and, lest this is not enough, Glory air-freights in St Peter’s keys.

SAVING THE DOMUS AUREA Politicians are at odds over how to preserve Rome’s archaeological jewellery box on the Oppian hill Sala Ottagonale. Archivio fotografico SSBAL.

new phase of restoration work is now scheduled on the Domus Aurea, the fragile archaeological site on the Oppian hill, once home to the infamous emperor Nero. However the project, which is scheduled to start in October (no precise date was available when Wanted in Rome went to press) has been surrounded by confusion and criticism over costs and correct techniques. A vociferous critic of the project has been the senator Andrea Marcucci, who previously served as deputy minister for cultural heritage and is now a senator for the Partito Democratico (PD). The debate flared after the excavation and restoration project for the Domus Aurea was approved on 15 July. Marcucci called on the current deputy minister for cultural heritage, Francesco Giro, to halt the project so that further consultation could be carried out with Rome’s archaeological authority. “The priority, as the [archaeological] superintendency has rightly underlined, is the site’s conservation and the waterproofing of the rooms, while here we are talking instead about a very expensive project that is just cosmetic, which will raise many questions about the maintenance of the Domus Aurea,” Marcucci told Corriere della Sera on 18 July. Giro, a member of Berlusconi’s Popolo della Libertà (PdL) party, wasn’t available for comment as this article was written. “The logic behind this project is very simple,” he had stated earlier in a press release. “We want to save the Domus Aurea from the top down, freeing it from the enormous bank of earth that is pressing down on it.” At the moment there is about 3m of earth on top of the Domus Aurea – 5m in some places, weighing up to seven tons. Work has been ongoing since late 2010 to strengthen the site’s structure and the latest phase involves lightweight mechanical diggers to remove the bank of earth. The most delicate part will be done by hand. The estimated cost of the project is €50 million, much of which will come from box-office takings across the road at the Colosseum. Marcucci also raised concerns over this, saying “Even the financial viability of the project is very odd. At a time of cuts, the minister for cultural heritage thinks he can find infinite resources, taking them away from a site like the Colosseum. This type of project will inevitably run over the projected €50 million budget.” The Domus Aurea, one of the most valuable and extraordinary remnants of ancient Rome, has been dogged by conservation problems ever since it was opened to the public in 1999. In 2005 it was announced that rainwater from the Oppian hill was damaging the site and it would have to be closed temporarily. A commission was set up in 2006, headed by Luciano Marchetti, commissioner for the safety and security of the Domus Aurea, but the site remained closed. On 30 March 2010 disaster struck when, after days of heavy rain, part of the extended site that contains the Domus Aurea and Trajan’s Baths collapsed. In November 2010, rain again put the site at further risk and it was decided that action was needed quickly to save the remaining structures – and the valuable Roman frescoes – from further damage. Because of the

value and beauty of the Roman paintings – including the frescoes that inspired the painter Raphael – the Domus Aurea is often referred to as a “jewellery box”. Work to strengthen the walls, roofs and structure of the site began in late 2010. The restoration work will also have to address the temperature and humidity levels. At the moment the humidity is helping to conserve the frescoes, so restorers will have to reduce humidity in a controlled way by using waterproof materials such as bentonite to seal off various sections and rooms of the archaeological complex. The favoured project, proposed by Marchetti, involves work on a cavity ceiling between the Domus Aurea and the layer of earth above. Once the cavity is secured and waterproofed a thin layer of earth will be replaced, about 50cm deep, so that the gardens of the Colle Oppio can be replanted. However local residents are unhappy that trees will be lost. Nero’s Golden House was built after the Great Fire of Rome in 64 AD. Nero then introduced building regulations that improved safety in the ancient city, but he also poured resources and money into the extravagant and enormous imperial palace covering between 100 and 300 acres. The walls were clad with precious marble, and the vaulted ceilings decorated with gold and gems. It was designed and built by the architects Severo and Celere, while the artist Fabullo is known to have created some of the interior designs. On his death in 68 AD, Nero was so hated by the Romans that they tried to obliterate the Domus Aurea as part of their attempt to erase the emperor from history. It was stripped of its luxurious interiors, the rooms were filled with earth and the building was buried and eventually forgotten. The Colosseum was built between 70-80 AD in the valley just below the site, while the emperors Titus (79-81 AD) and Trajan (98-117 AD) built their baths directly on top of the buried palace. In the early 16th century, the Domus Aurea re-entered the history books when a group of High Renaissance painters, including Raphael and Ghirlandaio, explored what they believed to be caves on the Oppian hill. The story goes that the artists lowered themselves into the buried palace through a hole in the roof and were amazed by the frescoes, which included painted faces with vivid caricatures. The artists incorporated this style into their work and it became known as grotesque (from the Italian word grotta, for cave). Raphael used the same style to decorate the Loggia at the Vatican. At the moment it is unclear how the current restoration work will proceed. There are questions over whether it will be effective in preserving what is, after all, a very fragile structure of enormous cultural and historical value. Giro’s office could not provide details of a definite time-frame for the completion of the project, nor for concrete plans on how the site will be accessible to the public in future – although it is likely that when the site reopens, visits will be restricted to small groups so that the internal temperature and humidity can be controlled.

Proceeds of the show will go towards a project against child malnutrition, a mission Hepburn took upon herself during her many years as a goodwill ambassador for Unicef.

NEW COLLETTIVA A GARAGEZERO 27 Oct-15 Nov A collective exhibition by contemporary Italian artists celebrates the restoration and re-birth of the underground garages in Rome’s Quadraro area, between Via Tuscolana and Via Appia Nuova, designed by the respected architect Mario De Renzi in the 20th century. The venue was in a state of utter abandon, having been used as a hiding place for petty criminals before a devastating fire. Today it is a new space for contemporary art in Rome.

Dmitry Zhilinsky’s USSR Gymnasts is included in a major exhibition dedicated to soviet Socialist Realism art.

The Palazzo delle Esposizioni presents the most comprehensive exhibition of Socialist Realism ever held outside Russia. The movement, which extolled socialism through realistic visual art, began in the Soviet Union and became a dominant style in other communist countries. The state-backed movement encouraged traditional artistic methods, and although it drew some inspiration from both classical and contemporary aspects of European art, it swam against the global tide of 20th-century modernism. The exhibition follows its development from the end of the civil war through to the Brezhnev era, ending at the beginning of the 1970s when the movement slowly began to lose steam.

NEW ALEKSANDR RODČENKO 11 Oct-8 Jan The work of Russian avant-garde artist Aleksandr Rodčenko (1891-1956) comes to Rome on loan from the House of Photography in Moscow, whose director Olga Sviblova curates this exhibition. Although primarily known as a photographer, Rodčenko was adept at painting, design, theatre, cinema and graphic art, and was a leading light in the intellectual and artistic circles of Russia’s 20thcentury avant-garde movement. Rodčenko revolutionised the medium of photography, trading its documentary role for a means of expressing intellectual theories and constructivist ideology. His work was not appreciated by the Soviet regime however and by the end of the 1930s he toned it down to suit the aesthetic principles of Socialist Realism. 300 of his works are on show at the Palazzo delle Esposizioni, Via Nazionale 194, tel. 0639967500. 10.00-20.00, Fri-Sat 10.00-23.00.

GIO PONTI Il fascino della ceramica 22 Oct-8 Jan Gio Ponti was one of the most important Italian architects, industrial designers, furniture designers, artists and publishers of the 20th century. Born in Milan in 1891, Ponti initially studied architecture but was forced to interrupt his course to serve in the Italian army during world war one, completing it on his return. Then, rather than practising as an architect, he became art director of a ceramics manufacturer, Richard-Ginori of Milan. It was under his artistic direction that the link between art and industry began, which still characterises the work of the factory today. During his time at RichardGinori, from 1923 to 1930, Ponti turned the company into a role model of industrial design. He decorated simple, traditional ceramic forms, which showed off elegant neo-classical motifs, and was the foremost practitioner of the Novecento Italiano style.

Koppelman (1920-2009) painted Napoleon into the 20th century, entering New York, and enjoying the beach at Coney Island, showing his human fragility.

DANCE MILAN BALLETTO DEL TEATRO ALLA SCALA 11 Oct-4 Nov In Raymonda, choreography by Petipa. Rudolf Nureyev loved Raymonda from his early days with the Kirov because of the pretext it provided for glorious dancing – classical, character, demicaractere – with great roles for men as well as for women. The Imperial Ballet was in its prime in the 1890s and Petipa could draw on all the emerging talents of the time as well as the virtuoso stamina of Pierina Legnani, capable of executing the most taxing role Petipa had ever created for a ballerina. Raymonda is a full-company showcase and really worth the show if the company is up to it, which in this case, it most probably will be. With guest artists Olesia Novikova and Friedemann Vogel. Teatro alla Scala, tel. 0272003744, BOB WILSON & MARTHA GRAHAM DANCE COMPANY 9-13 Nov In Snow on the Mesa. This work is Robert Wilson’s personal portrait of Martha Graham. In his own words “it reflects the many aspects of her persona, her interest in early America and the Shakers, her love for nature and the Midwest, her interest in Colin McFee and Balinese dance, her interest in western myths and Asian culture. She was a pioneer and visionary.” Originally subtitled Portrait of Martha, Wilson’s tribute to the mother of modern dance premiered just four years after Graham’s death. The piece was the second commission by a guest artist for the company (Twyla Tharp was commissioned in 1993), as well as the only work ever created by Wilson for a dance company.

Provocative Belgian choreographer Jan Fabre and his company Troubleyn perform Promtheus - Landscape II for Romaeuropa.

In Prometheus - Landscape II, conceived, directed and choreographed by Jan Fabre. Provocative and cutting-edge Belgian artist and choreographer Jan Fabre and his dance/theatre company Troubleyn are based in Antwerp. His recent 90minute work of theatrical fantasy and frenzy, Prometheus - Landscape II, is based loosely on the Aeschylus play Prometheus Bound. Critics have remarked upon the visual spectacle it offers, (a trait for which Fabre is known), with Prometheus (the muscular, nearly naked Kurt Vandendriessche) strung high above the stage, staring impassively forward as an enormous fiery globe alternately swells and subsides on a screen behind him. One by one, various characters confront Prometheus, until he too eventually speaks, bitterly defiant of the gods who have inflicted punishment upon him for his theft of fire. Around the actors, the ensemble (ten performers in all) engage in repetitive behaviour; occasionally sing and generally perform – sometimes to shock.

For information and booking tel. 0645553050, DNA – DANZA NAZIONALE AUTORIALE 28-30 Oct This Romaeuropa Festival project provides a showcase and a launch pad for new Italian dancers, performers and choreographers. Events take place in different venues, and each evening features three or more separate performances by individuals or collectives who have

been chosen to represent Italian choreographic creativity by the Fondazione Romaeuropa and by dance critic and professor, Stefano Tomassini. For information and booking tel. 0645553050, NACERA BELAZA 11 Nov In Les Sentinelles and Les temps scelle, choreography by Nacera Belaza. French-based Algerian choreographer Belaza is fast becoming one of the names to look out for in a blossoming scene dominated by choreographers from the Francophone Arab world – Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia – and their Mediterranean near-neighbours, Israel and Turkey. Belaza, who was awarded the “Choreographic revelation of the year 2008” prize by the French union of theatre, dance and dance critics, came to performance after studying literature and film, both of which infuse her work. Performing with her sister Dalila Belaza, she explores spirituality and womanhood through minimal movement juxtaposed against a range of music. Teatro Palladium, Piazza B. Romano 8. For information and booking tel. 0645553050, ZIMMERMANN & DE PERROT AND THE GROUPE ACROBATIQUE DE TANGER 23-27 Nov In Chouf Ouchouf, created and staged by Zimmerman & De Perrot. Chouf Ouchouf, which means, “look, but take a really good look,” is an hour of offbeat dance, comedy, singing, soundscapes, beauty and thrilling physical theatre performed by the ten men and two women of the Groupe Acrobatique de Tanger. A simple but flexible set built of moveable chipboard towers is expertly manipulated to lend atmosphere, and a clever use of props helps create a wordless story of a day in the medina of Tanger. The show is billed as “a witty and highly skilled show for adults and children over seven.” Acrobatics is a family tradition in Morocco, like circus in Europe, and troupe leader, Younes Hammich has revealed that his brother is also in the troupe, and the two women are his wife and his sister. As press releases reveal “these family ties are enough to allow the women to perform without censure, but importantly the show comments eloquently and touchingly on the position of North African women, still expected to be silent, modest and dutiful, regardless of their abilities”.

OPERA OPERA NOTES The 2010-2011 opera season at La Scala in Milan closes with La donna del lago, one of the most romantic operas written by Rossini in Italy. The production has a star cast conducted by Roberto Abbado after his success with Mosè in Egitto at the Rossini Opera Festival in Pesaro. At S. Cecilia in Rome Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin will be performed in concert form on 9 Nov in a one-night special performance conducted by Valery Gergiev. Si chiude la stagione 2010-11 del Teatro alla Scala di Milano con La donna del lago di Gioachino Rossini (26 ottobre – 18 novembre), che propone il meglio degli interpreti rossiniani di oggi: il soprano Joyce DiDonato, il contralto Daniela Barcellona e i tenori Juan Diego Flórez e John Osborn, tutti chiamati a cantare l’amore che trionfa dopo tante peripezie, sofferenze, gelosie e tradimenti. Direttore d’orchestra sarà Roberto Abbado, reduce dal successo di Mosè in Egitto all’ultimo ROF di Pesaro, e il regista catalano Lluìs Pasqual, cresciuto alla scuola di Giorgio Strehler. La donna del lago è tratta dal poemetto The Lady of the Lake di Walter Scott, ed è considerata la più romantica fra le opere che Rossini scrisse in Italia. Giacomo Leopardi (il poeta emblema del romanticismo italiano) dopo averla ascoltata disse: «eseguita da voci sorprendenti, è cosa stupenda, e potrei piangere ancor io, se il dono delle lagrime non mi fosse stato sospeso, giacché m’avvedo pure di non averlo perduto affatto». Tra le pagine più note c’è lo scoppiettante finale Tanti affetti cantato dalla protagonista, che il compositore riutilizzò più volte: in Bianca e Falliero e nella versione veneziana di Maometto II.

Valery Gergiev conducts a one-night special performance of Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin at S. Cecilia.

Per la Stagione Sinfonia dell’Accademia Nazionale di S. Cecilia, al Parco della Musica di Roma, per una sola sera (9 novembre) sarà eseguita in forma di concerto l’opera Eugene Onegin di Tchaikovsky, in un’esecuzione di lusso diretta da Valery Gergiev alla guida dei solisti e dell’orchestra del Teatro Mariinsky di S. Pietroburgo. In Eugene Onegin Tchaikovsky indaga con sensibilità psicologica e musicale l’amore impossibile tra una donna candida, appassionata e onesta, e un uomo ombroso, annoiato e immaturo. Tra le pagine più belle: la lunga scena del soprano che scrive una lettera d’amore, l’aria che il tenore intona prima di morire e quella in cui il basso loda le gioie della vita coniugale. Valery Gergiev, sempre con l’orchestra del Mariinsky, eseguirà di Gustav Mahler anche la Sinfonie n° 3 (10 novembre) e la Sinfonia n° 4 (11 novembre), ognuna dotata di un lied: il primo affidato al contralto (una metafisica riflessione sul dolore) il secondo al soprano (un inno alle gioie del paradiso).

A MAGIC FLUTE by Mozart 17-27 Nov Brook has always displayed an interest for Mozart and this production of A Magic Flute is his third re-elaboration on Mozart’s work after his The Marriage of Figaro and Don Giovanni. Here Brook revisits Mozart’s score with the collaboration of the composer and pianist Franck Krawczyk and the text with playwright MarieHélène Estienne. Brook’s approach stems from his long-standing relationship with the Royal Shakespeare Company and like its predecessors, A Magic Flute drastically strips down the original: the whole work, played without a break, lasts just 90 minutes, the youthful cast is reduced to seven singers and two actors, and the orchestra replaced by a piano part arranged and played by Krawczyk. The set is a collection

of vertical canes, constantly moved into new configurations, there are few props, and the costumes are a mix of western and vaguely oriental. The aim, Brook says in the programme, is to produce a “light effervescent Flute, where an intimacy with the performers will allow the tenderness and the depth of the score to appear”.
