MONDAY 5TH JUNE 2017
8pm, PALAZZO D’ARCO
“Voices from an ever present past” AND VISIT TO THE SELLERIA DI PALAZZO, MEGLIOMANTOVA REVIEW AT THE PESCHERIE
The first event of the review “MeglioMantova per le Pescherie” will be held in the beautiful setting of Palazzo D’Arco. The evening will start at 8pm in the palace’s theatre with a show entitled “Voices from an ever present past”. The show features a reading from authoritative travellers who have visited Mantua from the 16th to the 20th century: Napoleon, the Baron of Montesquieu, ambassador Nicolò Dolfin, Torquato Tasso and Charles Dickens, to name but a few, interpreted by actors of the Francesco Campogalliani theatre company. The tale develops through amusing and amused testimonies, sometimes critical. All is accompanied by an atmospheric soundtrack and the projection of evocative images directed by Diego Fusari.
A buffet will follow, in Palazzo d’Arco’s garden, based on typical Mantuan specialities. The tastings will be prepared by the restaurateurs of the Meglio Mantova committee, interviewed by the guest of honour Stefano Scansani, who will quiz them on their culinary creations.
The evening will be rounded off with a pleasant and unexpected surprise: an exclusive visit to the selleria of Palazzo d’Arco, an area never before opened to the public, extraordinarily opened for the guests of the Committee.
The objective of the initiative is to raise funds for the restoration of the Pescherie di Levante by Giulio Romano, a project which MeglioMantova curates together with the Foundation for the Pescherie di Giulio Romano and the Non Capovolgere association.
A contribution of only 20 Euros is necessary to be able to take part to the evening, which includes the theatrical play, buffet and visit to the sellerie of Palazzo d’Arco – and booking is required before June the 3rd (limited availability of 70 seats) by contacting the secretary of the MeglioMantova committee at the address email@example.com , telephone: 392 557 5766.
