“Scolpire il Tempo” Weekend 4 ____________ Pietrasanta’s M.U.S.A. art and architecture festival features “Arte Povera” and other revolutionary ideas


Days, weeks, decades, fly by when you are “Sculpting Time.” So many art and architecture events to post about – so little time. So we quickly post the schedule of the 4th weekend of “Scolpire il Tempo” Pietrasanta’s video art festival, which takes place this weekend.

Friday, the 12th of July

Projection of “Arte Povera” the documentary by Beatrice Merz, which traces the Italian art movement laid out by Germano Celant, in the late sixties.
AND: projection of  “Alighiero e Boetti. Niente da Vedere Niente da Nascondere” (Alighiero and Boetti: Nothing to See, Nothing to Hide) Emidio Greco’s 1978 documentary about contemporary art.
PLUS two short films dedicated to Ron Arad and Marc Newson, two visionary artists who revolutionized contemporary design.

Saturday, the 13th of July

Projection of “I Colori della Passione” (The Colors of Passion) by Lech Majewski, an exploration of the work of Breugel.
AND: the projection of a conference featuring famed architect Renzo Piano, where he tries to answer “What is Architecture?”

Sunday, the 14th of July

Architecture takes center stage. The program Sunday is dedicated to some younger architects who’ve already made a name for themselves – as well as looking at some older figures: Herzog & De Meuron… and an homage to Oscar Niemeyer, who moved to the big Condo in the Sky in 2012 at age 105.

The screenings take place at M.U.S.A. from 6:30pm to 11:30pm, and are FREE to the public.
