Vivaldi. My life, my music is the title of the new exhibition scheduled at Palazzo Fava, from May 24th to November 3rd, 2019.
An unusual exhibit, a show, a great spectacle in which you can dive to listen and live the story of the life and works of Antonio Vivaldi, one of the most famous and performed composers in the world. Among well-rounded images, involving music and stunning sceneries, the exhibition aims to tell the story of the composer to a transversal public: from classical music lovers to a wider audience, up to and including children, who have a dedicated section, with specific audio-guides. Visitors will be fascinated and surprised by the effectiveness of the technologies used to show the music of one the greatest composers of all times.
The exhibition itinerary shows the human and artistic history of the Red Priest – so-called because of his tawny hair. From childhood to priesthood, from his teaching years at Ospedale della Pietà in Venice, where the orphans of the city were hosted, to his international successes, into the oblivion that wrapped his music for almost two centuries, before the rediscovery of his works by Ezra Pound: a real whirlwind of emotions, in which art and life are inextricably entwined.
In the “piano nobile” of Palazzo Fava, the itinerary runs from the Carracci Room, where the viewer is accompanied by a suggestion of the memory, described using images of a young Vivaldi, to reach the heart of a creative rage, from the priesthood to the years teaching orphans. The distinctive voice of Giancarlo Giannini, brilliant actor and amazing voice actor of Hollywood stars, accompanies visitors for a long part of the “journey”. He will offer a friendly and intimate confession of a now elderly Vivaldi and a passionate declaration of love for music.
