The Culture of Emilia-Romagna


  • "Restoring Verdi´s places" From Roncole to Sant'Agata via Busseto
    To mark the first centenary of the death of Giuseppe Verdi, the Emilia-Romagna Region, toghether with AICER and IBC, promoted the realization of this video for the exhibition Restoring Verdi’s places - from Roncole to Sant’Agata via Busseto. The video aims at giving back the surroundings and the panoramas experienced and loved by Verdi, using a series of virtual reconstructions, digitally drawn from original documents. The video runs along the main stages of an ideal Verdi route: the birthplace at Roncole, Busseto, where Verdi spent his childhood and adolescence, the countryside and the surroundings, Villa Verdi at Sant’Agata and its garden, bought in 1848, when, well-known and rich, he decided to come back to his home land. From these privileged points of view, stories of the Maestro and events and vicissitudes of the surroundings are told with the live comment of professor Pier Luigi Cervellati, curator of the restauration of Roncole and Sant’Agata and planner of the mentioned exhibition.
  • The culture of the Emilia-Romagna. A dictionary of images
    A dictionary of images is not just a set sequence showing those places which define the meaning of Emilia-Romagna. It is, rather, one possible way of looking at the multi-layered social and cultural complexity which throughout the centuries has transformed what was once only a geographical entity into a land where man has left his mark: a theatre of thoughts, deeds, emotions. To give a sensible shape to this region is like trying to reduce to a pat definition the depth of human experience which makes up our birthright - the land the people live in and to which they bear witness. The dictionary is thus a way of scrolling trough various pan-shots of the region, whereby the observing eye becomes increasingly more subjective and intimate. Both our geographical and historical vision of the region is coloured by the presence of the human beings who have left their mark in space and time. It is by following characters captured by the camera that we shall discover a land and the life of those who live there
