Public domain at IV Festival di Piazza San Giovanni

From June 20 to July 19 2014

Palazzo Chiablese - courtyard

Liceo Teatro Nuovo Coreutico e Teatrale - TNT professional courses

Giovane è la danza, giovane è il teatro - Danza classica e contemporanea - Azioni performative, corti teatrali a cura di Girolamo Angione, Antonio Della Monica, Gabriele Bolletta, Domenico Berardi, Franca Dorato, Gianni Mancini, Paolo Zaltron

La quarta edizione del Festival di Piazza San Giovanni sarà dedicata quest'anno a Germana Erba, che ne è stata l'ispiratrice e sostenitrice attenta e appassionata, sempre con competenza ed entusiasmo, valorizzandone la caratteristica di occasione di incontro e confronto per giovani artisti e di diffusione d'arte e di cultura.

Il 20 giugno sarà una serata dedicata anche alla presentazione di alcuni "corti teatrali" che, nati nell'ambito del progetto per le celebrazioni degli autori che di anno in anno diventano di Pubblico Dominio promosso dal Politecnico, dalle Biblioteche Civiche, dall'Università di Torino e dalla Fondazione Teatro Nuovo, hanno ormai assunto la valenza di vere e proprie azioni performative.

Flashmob on Piero Martinetti

Biblioteca Centrale di Ingegneria - reading rooms

Politecnico di Torino

La psiche degli animali (The animals' psyche), a book by Martinetti, inspires this performance, to show the philosopher's thought. He asserts that the animals are endowed with intellect and conscience as well as the humans, thus ethics must not be restricted to human-to-human relationships, but it should rather be extended to the research of wealth and happiness for all those creatures provided with a nervous system. Sure enough, he thinks, they can feel joy and pain as well as the humans.

The flashmob is the outcome of the Martinetti on stage project, realized within the #hackUniTO.

Flashmob on Camillo Olivetti

Camillo Olivetti meets children at Politecnico di Torino!

May 5, 8 e 9, 2014 from 9 o'clock a.m.

Children from primary schools in Turin are meeting Camillo Olivetti at Politecnico di Torino.

Within the initiative "Bambini e Bambine un giorno all'Università" (Children at University for a day), organized by the City of Turin, the Liceo teatrale, coreutico e scenografico del Teatro Nuovo will perform a show on Camillo Olivetti in the Central Library of Engineering's reading room.

The performance is one of the flashmobs proposed by Politecnico di Torino, together with University of Turin, Civic Libraries and Teatro Nuovo Foundation itself, to celebrate Public Domain in 2014.

The young actors will portray the main events in life and work of Camillo Olivetti, dead in 1943, father of Adriano, graduated at Politecnico di Torino and founder of the Olivetti firm.

Another short show will greet the children: "NON SPORCARE, PENSACI!" (Don't get dirty, think of it!). The performance is the result of a collaboration between Liceo Teatro Nuovo and AMIAT, and it's dedicated to the preservation of the environment, an asset that everybody should defend and protect.

Thursday, May 8, at 4 p.m. Arena Piemonte

CELEBRATE PUBLIC DOMAIN AT SALONE DEL LIBRO

with a flashmob on Carlo Nigra

Torino per l'Expo - Spazio Piemonte

La sfida del 2015

Conference by Regione Piemonte and Comune di Torino.

This performance tells the realization of one of the best known works by Nigra: Il Borgo e il Castello Medievale del Valentino (the Medieval Village and Castle in Valentino Park) for the Esposizione Generale Italiana del 1884 (the 1884 world's fair). Ironically, but not disrespectfully, the show compares procedures, scheduling times and costs of the 1884 fair and the upcoming Expo2015.
