Arts & Culture

Italian culture is steeped in the arts, architecture, music, cinema and food. Italy has given rise to a number of architectural styles and design movements. Opera has its roots in Italy and many famous operas are still performed all around the world in the native language. As a cultural center, we connect our community to Italian art in all forms.

    "Wish It Was A Coming Out" Photographs By Melissa Ianniello  

    We are proud to partner with
    The Rochester Art Center
    to present
    an intimate photography collection
    of gay life i
    n Italy.  

    Open until January 29th, 2023

    Through the lens of tenderness and care, Melissa Ianniello: Wish it Was a Coming Out addresses themes that are universally relevant: from self determination to gay/lesbian love, from the representation of affection in advanced age to the honest portrayal of grief, loneliness and death. By bringing these stories to light, Ianniello encourages us to look with compassion at our own humanity in an attempt to celebrate love in its purest form.

    In this exhibition, the stories of gay men and lesbian women between their sixties and nineties unfold through sixteen intimate photographs and six large scale photographs of the interviewee's homes. This is the award winning show's first exhibition in North America.

    We hope you will attend and support this emerging Italian photographer and her work!

    Two Artists, Two Cities, Two Icons

    A dialogue between Rome and New York City


    The exhibition currently on display at the Weisman Museum of Art, “Capturing Change: The Urban Images of Berenice Abbott and Giovanni Battista Piranesi”, offers a rare opportunity to admire the works of two masters, twentieth century American photographer Berenice Abbott and eighteen century Italian engineer, archeologist and artist Giovanni Battista Piranesi. The works from Abbott’s publication “Changing New York” and from Piranesi’s “Vedute di Roma” are rarely on display at the Weisman.

    Berenice Abbott photographed New York City in the 1930s while Piranesi created his etchings of Rome in mid-1700. Both artists saw these two cities with unfamiliar eyes as Abbott was from Ohio and Piranesi was a citizen of the Republic of Venice. One can say that their “foreignness” allowed them to recognize iconic architectural and urban elements of Rome and New York City, which helped create an imagery of the two cities that remains in our collective mind to this day.

    “Changing New York” (1929-39) by Berenice Abbott is still regarded as the most important photographic portrait of any American city. “Vedute di Roma” (1747-78) by Giovanni Battista Piranesi created a perception of Roman antiquity lasting to our own time.

    The tour is in English and will be led by Lorella Angelini. It will take place on Wednesday, October 12 from 6:00 to - 7:15 p.m. Participants will meet at the Weisman’s check-in desk. 


    Lorella Angelini, a native of Pesaro in the Marche region of Italy, has been living and working in Minneapolis for the last 20 years. She holds a graduate degree in Civil Engineering from Marche Polytechnic University and specialization in Marketing from SDA Bocconi in Milan. Deeply passionate about art, Lorella has built her art knowledge through a long-term collaboration with the Weisman Museum of Art and the Walker Art Center. Lorella is currently a tour guide with the Weisman Museum of Art.

    Botticelli and Renaissance Florence:
    Masterworks from the Uffizi


    The Minneapolis Institute of Art (Mia) presents "Botticelli and Renaissance Florence: Masterworks from the Uffizi,” featuring more than 45 loans from the renowned Uffizi Galleries in Florence, including Sandro Botticelli's evocative Minerva and the Centaur (c. 1482).

    ICC Members receive 50% off
    up to four exhibition tickets per purchase
    Request your code today!
    contact@theitalianculturalcenter.org


    Marking the first collaboration between Mia and the Uffizi Galleries, the exhibition includes paintings, drawings, prints, sculpture, decorative arts, and a selection of ancient Roman marble statues. It is the largest and one of the most comprehensive shows on Botticelli ever staged in the United States, featuring works that seldom leave the Italian museum’s galleries.

    On view from October 16, 2022, through January 8, 2023, in Mia's Target Galleries, "Botticelli and Renaissance Florence" contextualizes the artist’s works within the broader artistic and cultural climate of Renaissance Florence.

    Famous for his large-scale mythological and secular paintings, Sandro Botticelli (1445–1510) was among the most celebrated and gifted artists of the Italian Renaissance. He is also well known for his inimitable treatment of sacred subjects, which include altarpieces, devotional pictures, and three major frescoes in the Sistine Chapel in Rome commissioned by Pope Sixtus IV. In addition to his Minerva and the Centaur, painted for the Medici family at the height of his career, the Uffizi is lending a dozen works by Botticelli, including nine paintings treating a range of subjects from the religious and mythological to portraiture and three drawings that are very rarely lent and have never been exhibited in the United States.

    The exhibition also includes loaned works by Botticelli's master, Fra Filippo Lippi, and other members of Botticelli's circle, including Filippino Lippi, the Pollaiuolo brothers, Domenico Ghirlandaio, Perugino, Luca Signorelli, and Lorenzo di Credi. Important Roman sculptures spanning the second century BCE to the second century CE are also on display, including five major works from the Uffizi's collection. These antiquities help illuminate the integral role played by ancient art in the Italian Renaissance and its influence on Botticelli and his circle—providing a rare opportunity to present together works by Botticelli and the sculptures that influenced him.

    Loans from the Uffizi are interspersed with objects from Mia's collection, including Benedetto da Rovezzano's Saint John the Baptist sculptural bust (c. 1505) displayed alongside Jacopo del Sellaio's Triumph of Mordecai (c. 1485), a panel painting from the Uffizi that depicts a similar terra-cotta bust.

    Visitors are able to see how artworks were originally displayed in Renaissance interiors and gain a better understanding of how they functioned in these spaces.

    Visioni Pasoliniane - Fuochi Segreti

    A Contemporary Dance Performance

    by

    Compagnia Artemis Danza/Monica Casadei

    for the fist time in Minneapolis

    October 22, 2022


    The performance is a tribute to Pier Paolo Pasolini (1922-1975), one of the greatest artists and intellectuals of the twentieth century.

    “Non dovete far altro che continuare semplicemente a essere voi stessi: il che significa essere continuamente irriconoscibili. Dimenticare subito i grandi successi e continuare imperterriti, ostinati, eternamente contrari, a pretendere, a volere, identificarvi col diverso”

    Pasolini’s research would begin from the body: his own, lean and athletic, and from his hunger for bodies, which emerges from all of his work in its lights and shadows. Through the characters, words and images that populate his oeuvre, the Emilian author manifested his thought and made it into a work of art open to different interpretations. 

    The language of dance, merging body and soul, becomes a powerful tool to revive the complexity of his thought: there is the woman-mother - pillar of his poetic and cinematographic production - there is the notion of freedom, there is poetry, there is Bach's music - with whom he sought to establish an artistic partnership - and there is the sacredness of the gesture. All these ingredients populate texts and visions that give life to an homage made of tension and redemption, dreams and utopias. A fresco of humanity and its paradoxes that live in the past and the present, exciting and opening our eyes to existence.

    In Monica Casadei's choreography there is the sun of Roma’s “borgate” (the hamlets of Rome), where life pulsates, children play and the young, dressed in colorful clothes, dream and fight for their rights. In “Pasolini-Fuochi segreti” there is the warmth of that sun, the blue of the sky and the warm air of spring.

    MONICA CASADEI AND ARTEMIS DANZA

    “Everything mankind has experienced is written on the body. Dancing your soul out, the old one as well as the one we possess nowadays, equals putting movement and form to the service of need, urgency, emotion and soul”  M. C.

    Originally from Ferrara, Monica Casadei graduates in philosophy cum laude writing a dissertation on dance in Plato’s system. After a career as a professional acrobatic gymnast, she takes to studying classic and modern dance, at first in Italy, then in London, and eventually in Paris where she gets to meet choreographers Pierre Doussaint and Isabelle Doubouloz and the Master André Cognard Hanshi So shihan, with whom she still practices the martial art of Aikido.

    In France, she founds the company Artemis Danza, with which she later moves to Italy, in 1997, giving birth to a fervent production activity that amounts, nowadays, to over 40 original creations.

    From 1998 to 2007, the Company is part of an artist residency at Fondazione Teatro Due in Parma whereas, from 2014 up to this day, it partakes in an artist residency at Teatro Comunale in Bologna. Artemis Danza has been invited to the most important Italian theatres and festivals and to several international tours and festivals.

    Pivotal elements in Monica Casadei’ s artistic research are the influences from different artistic, cultural and geographic fields and the exploration of urban spaces and places that turn into stages for performances.

    Alongside the production activity, Artemis funds, produces and promotes young choreographers and organizes several activities meant to artistically educate the audience.

     ITALIAN IMMIGRANT CUISINE IN THE UNITED STATES: A History of Food and Diaspora

    by Prof. Simone Cinotto


    As part of our series ITALIAN AMERICANS: MORE THAN 200 YEARS IN THE MAKING, dedicated to exploring the history and heritage of the millions of Italians who emigrated to the United States and demystifying stereotypes, we are delighted to announce our 3rd talk: Italian Immigrant Cuisine in the United States: A History of Food and Diaspora, live from Italy with Prof. Simone Cinotto. Presented in English.

    Food was at the center of the lives of Italian immigrants in the United States and their children in the early twentieth century. From generational conflicts resolved around the family table to a vibrant food-based economy of ethnic producers, importers, and restaurateurs, food was essential to the creation of an Italian American identity. Italian American foods offered not only sustenance but also powerful narratives of community and difference, tradition and innovation as immigrants made their way in American society, in the process inventing in the New World a widely popular Italian cuisine that did not exist yet in their country of origin.


    Join us on Saturday, November 5th, 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM (Doors: 10:30 AM) at ICC. Prof. Simone Cinotto will connect remotely from Italy (presented in English) with ICC members and friends listening together from our location in the vibrant North Loop neighborhood of Minneapolis.

    This will be a fascinating morning, providing participants with an opportunity to discover ICC's new location, reconnect and enjoy a good espresso and biscotti. Doors: 10:30 AM; Presentation: 11:00 AM.


    IMPORTANT: Masking will be optional but proof of vaccination or a negative test performed within 72 hours of the event will be required upon entry. Click here for details on our COVID 19 policy.

     LITTLES ITALIES - A PLACE OR A PEOPLE?
    THE DEVELOPMENT OF ETHNICITY IN THE US

    A visual journey across America
    by Prof. Jerome Krase


    As part of our series ITALIAN AMERICANS: MORE THAN 200 YEARS IN THE MAKING, dedicated to exploring the history and heritage of the millions of Italians who emigrated to the United States and demystifying stereotypes, we are delighted to announce our November talk: Little Italies - A Place or a People? The Development of Ethnicity in the US with Prof. Jerome Krase.

    For many, Italian America and the Italian American neighborhood are virtually synonymous. Ethnic urban villages, initially established to provide mutual assistance and support among immigrants, have survived despite upward social mobility, suburban migration, urban renewal, and invasions by subsequent groups. Interestingly, the local Italian community (as a congeries of families) has been better suited than many others to survive the transformations, having evolved over centuries within a variety of oppressive social, political, and economic structures. Until recently, most predicted the imminent disappearance of Italian ethnic neighborhoods, thus producing a large collection of studies on the birth and death of one or another Little Italy. These pessimistic analyses were based on various theories that predicted the “Twilight” of Italian American ethnicity. For historians the major rubric under which Italian residential communities are discussed is that of Little Italy. For other social scientists it is the urban village. Although most of these, almost stereotypical enclaves, are still found in the central areas of large metropo­lises many others can be found in smaller cities, and virtually every location where heavy industry, construction, sewer, road, or canal work, or major railroad or seaport connections required immigrant labor. Also, a sizable percentage of Italians have lived and worked in small factory towns, mining villages, and in rural America. Although these Italian American neighborhoods have many variations based on such things as size, concentration, and immigrant generation; from tiny California fishing villages to the huge concentration of Italians in New York City's East Harlem, it is possible to speculate about what they have in common. Not all of the neighborhoods in which Americans of Italian descent reside are regarded as Little Italies. Ironi­cally, it is possi­ble that an area in which all of the resi­dents are Italian might not be called a “Little Italy” while another locale at which there is not a single Italian resident will be so regard­ed. Little Italies are fre­quently de­scribed as having Old World Italian airs, in most cases what is defined as Old World, or even Italian is arbitrarily ill-defined, if defined at all. People just seem to intuitively know when they are in a real Italian neighborhood.


    Join us on Thursday, November 17th, 6:00 - 7:30 PM (Doors: 5:30 PM) at ICC. Prof. Jerome Krase will connect remotely from the East coast with ICC members and friends listening together from our location in the vibrant North Loop neighborhood of Minneapolis.

    This will be a fascinating evening, providing participants with an opportunity to discover ICC's new location, reconnect and enjoy a glass of wine and light appetizers. Doors: 5:30 PM; Presentation: 6:00 PM.
