Culture and Information Events on the Vajont Disaster: VajontS 23

Modern approaches to understanding the world often emerge within the union between science and art. The Casa del Contemporaneo intends to bring the general public closer to the Vajont disaster through an event that mixes these two areas in a stimulating and academic dialogue.

The initiative will not be only a moment of commemoration, but represents a multigenerational educational commitment.

What happened within the Vajont disaster

Before delving into the small print of the event, it is important to recollect the tragedy that began all of it. In 1963, a large landslide hit the Vajont Dam, causing a devastating wave that destroyed several communities and caused roughly 2000 victims.

A historical undeniable fact that represents a serious warning concerning the importance of respect for the environment and prevention.

The project

Human emotions and science will meet on stage due to the direction of Rosario Sparno, which he’ll stage three stage readings. The target is evident: to indicate that the environmental awareness can emerge from the fusion of emotion and scientific knowledge.

How the event is organised

The Casa del Contemporaneo will bring the event to life on the evening of October ninth, with 4 locations that can light up their stages concurrently. It will not be only a representation: it’s a choir of voices that rises in order to not forget. This initiative was began by Marco Paolini, thirty years after his famous show on the Vajont.

The locations of the event

The center of the event will probably be represented by 4 rooms of the Casa del Contemporaneo, spaces that turn into places of cultural aggregation and reflection. However the project also extends beyond these boundaries, involving other necessary structures.

Listed below are the locations:

  • Solo Room of the Casa del Contemporaneo
  • Ghirelli Theater of the Casa del Contemporaneo
  • Karol Theater of the Contemporary House
  • Theater of the Little
  • Nest of San Giovanni a Teduccio
  • Vittorio Emanuele Municipal Theater of Benevento
  • Eidos Theater of San Giorgio del Sannio

Events for the little ones

The education of the brand new generations represents a vital point of this project. On the Teatro dei Piccoli ranging from 19: 00, a specialized group will deal with roughly 80 students, with the aim of teaching them on environmental issues through a playful and participatory approach.
