[Mirror, Mirror On The Wall by Patrizio Travagli]
The Embassy of Italy and the Italian Cultural Institute are pleased to present the exhibition opening of Mirror, Mirror On The Wall by Patrizio Travagli.
Patrizio Travagli invites us to turn our attention to the disturbing singularity of the mirror. How many times have mirrors deceived us? How many times, even if for a few moments, have we believed that the reflected image was a window or a door, an entrance not to Wonderland, as it was for Lewis Carroll's Alice, but to our own common, everyday world?
In the exhibition Mirror, Mirror On The Wall, artist Patrizio Travagli asks you, the viewer, to become the piece of art. Your reflection in the mirror is the launching point for questions about identity, illusion, and reality.
The reflection is perceived as an antinomy: the Other and the Same, Everything and Nothing, Identity and Difference. The mirror’s surface is the event horizon that allows this dialogue to happen with the fascinating power of illusion. The word illusion comes from the latin in lusionem, that means to get into the game (lusia). It refers not to a mere representation of appearance, but rather to an authentic recreation of reality.
As part of the ALBERTO SAVINIO STUDY DAYS, CIMA is pleased to welcome Savinio expert Paola Italia from Rome to present her keynote from 6pm – 7:30pm:
A “creative power-station”: A journey into Savinio’s laboratory through manuscripts, papers, and drafts
Wanderer of the imagination, alchemist of the word, unable to give expression to his extraordinary creativity through one single art, Alberto Savinio left in his papers a precious testimony to his phenomenal intellect. On the centennial of Hermaphrodito(Florence, 1918), Paola Italia takes CIMA’s audience on an exclusive journey into Savinio’s creative process: she will open the doors of the writer’s archive, preserved in Historical Contemporary Archive “A. Bonsanti” at the Vieusseux Archive in Florence, and share excerpts from his manuscripts, papers, and book drafts, providing insight into not only Savinio’s working methods but also the secrets of his creativity.
Paola Italia is Associate Professor of Italian Literature and Philology at the University of Bologna. Her research is devoted to 19th– and 20th-century Italian literature language and philology, including modern authors methods of writing and editing. Italia earned her Ph.D. in 1998 from the University of Pisa with her dissertation on Alberto Savinio’s early works (Il Pellegrino appassionato), and has expanded scholarship on the author through subsequent publications. Celebrated for her texts on writers including Leopardi, Manzoni, Bassani, Gadda, Manganelli, Italia has also been recognized for her teaching at the Universities of Magonza, Siena and Rome La Sapienza.
The event will be preceded by a prosecco aperitivo at 5:30pm. Presentation begins at 6pm, followed by a Q&A.
Free for students with valid ID and CIMA members; $10 general admission. Your entry for this evening program also entitles you to come earlier in the day to join any part of the Study Day afternoon program.
