Only one day to go until the Mario Brunello concert. Have you made your reservation? Act soon because seating is limited. All you need to do is register on the website Festival delle Città Impresa and sign up for the event.
If are feeling lost by the wayside, let me explain what I am talking about…
As you know, LAGO has contamination with other realities in its DNA. This times we are contaminating ourselves with music and we are doing it in an unusual way: we are hosting “I thought it was Bach”, a musical event for which Mario Brunello will perform a selection of Bach suites for violoncello in a suggestive and unexpected location: the LagoFabbrica. Which is to say in a business space that is normally dedicated to production and that will become an Auditorium for the evening.
It will be stupendous to see the factory emptied of machinery and filled with musical notes. From the production of products to the production of music, of culture.
Betting on the capacity of a business to produce culture is a choice we made some years ago, moved by the desire to have a positive impact on our territory. And we are reaping the good fruits of this decision.
The event tomorrow evening (starting at 8pm) will start off with the technical manager of Ferrari, Roberto Fedeli, who will demonstrate how a motor attains perfection through a highly refined process that begins from its most “human” characteristic, which is to say the sound it produces.
This will be followed with the performance by Mario Brunello, who will be accompanied by the “metropolitan” video commentary of another great of the world of Italian music, Vinicio Capossela.
But for those who have time, the evening will begin before 8pm. At 6pm we will take a tour led by Anna Scalfi Eghenter, who will show us the project she designed for the industrial zone of Villa del Conte and that she created in our Art Waiting Room, where we are scheduled to arrive at 7pm. Here is the invitation…
A day of intriguing contaminations, not to be missed!
LagoFabbrica – “LagoFabbrica” derived from a project by Italo Chiucchini, a non-factory that produces insofar as conceived according to the criteria of organic domestic architecture. Here, noble materials not commonly used for industries meet: architectural systems made to the measure of man create harmonious sequences of inclined pitches, wooden beams, bricks and glass, terracotta, steel and aluminum.
Mario Brunello – Born in Castelfranco Veneto (Treviso), studied at the Venice Conservatory with Adriano Vendramelli and Antonio Janigro. In 1986 he won first prize at the International Competition Čajkovskij of Moscow in the category dedicated to the violoncello.
Founder and director of the Italian String Orchestra, he has performed in the most important concert halls worldwide, conducted by the biggest names, including Claudio Abbado, Myung-Whun Chung, Valery Gergiev, Carlo Maria Giulini, Eliahu Inbal, Marek Janowski, Riccardo Muti, Zubin Mehta and Seiji Ozawa.
He plays a Maggini violoncello made in 1600 that belonged to Benedetto Mazzacurati and then later to Franco Rossi, violoncellist of the Quartetto Italiano.
In Castelfranco Veneto, he hometown, he gives concerts, courses and master classes at Capannone Antiruggine, a historical factory where one once worked with iron and has now been transformed into a concert hall.
