Arts & Culture

Italy has a long and deeply rooted artistic tradition. Even in the Neolithic Age, the inhabitants of Italy produced beautiful artefacts. Many influences from different European regions have enriched the country over the centuries and left Italy with what is possibly the largest collection of artistic treasures in the world. While many regions of Italy have developed independently after the fall of the Roman Empire, the Italian Renaissance represents the pinnacle of the art scene. Artists such as Michelangelo, Raphael, Leonardo da Vinci and later Bernini and Caravaggio have left an unparalleled artistic legacy to humanity.

In modern times, Italian art has expanded its influence and includes interior and fashion designers, music artists and performers whose art has achieved new levels of beauty and sophistication and is admired around the world.

The Italian Cultural Center promotes and supports Italian arts and culture in the Twin Cities. Our partnership with the Walker Art Center, the Minnesota Opera and the Minneapolis Institute of Art is a testament to our continued commitment.

We are proud to bring a variety of interesting cultural events certain to entertain and delight our members and friends. We invite you to sign-up for these events and keep the Italian artistic tradition alive in Minnesota.

    WITH LIVE MUSIC FROM THE PERIOD

    “LEONARDO’S PARADISE: A Masterpiece of Theatre, Science, and Wonder at Sforza’s Court”,
    Francesca Bortoletti
    with the participation of the musicians Julie Elhard (viola de gamba) and Paul Berget (lute).

    Thursday, November 14, 2019
    5:45 - 6:30 pm, pre-talk reception 
    6:30 – 8:00 pm, lecture and live music
    A-Mill Artists Lofts

    Described by Giorgio Vasari as a “truly admirable painter, sculptor, art theorist, musician, writer, mechanical engineer, architect, master metal-worker, artillery expert, inventor, anatomist, scientist”, Leonardo da Vinci was also an unforgettable scenographer. On January 13th 1490, Leonardo was commissioned by the duke Ludovico Sforza to organize in Milan a majestic spectacle, called ‘Festa del Paradiso’, for the wedding of Gian Galeazzo Sforza with Isabella d’Aragona. In the ‘Sala Verde’ of the Ducal Palace, Leonardo elaborated a ‘Paradise’ with all the seven planets orbiting round and hosting the seven gods of Olympus, who came to earth to pay homage to the new duchess. Leonardo chose the mythological, astrological, and encomiastic subject for creating unprecedented mechanical scenery. This talk will explore models and heritage of Leonardo’s theatrical ingegno, which inaugurated a new genre of theatrical entertainment and engineering invention for the wonder of the Sforza’s court and its foreign illustrious guests.


    Dr Francesca Bortoletti is Assistant Professor at the University of Minnesota. She received her Ph.D. from the University of Bologna and Centre d'Études Supérieures de la Renaissance, Tours.

She has published three books and articles in books chapter and in peer-reviewed international journals.



    Julie Elhard, viola da gamba, appears regularly as a soloist and chamber musician and has made several appearances with the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, including the St. Matthew Passion by Bach under the direction of Nicholas McGegan. Ms. Elhard has received multiple grants from the Minnesota State Arts Board as well as a Jerome Foundation grant. Ms. Elhard received a Performing Artist Certificate from the Royal Conservatory of Music in The Hague, Netherlands and has taught at workshops in North America and at the Viola da Gamba Society of America’s national conclaves. She currently teaches viola da gamba at St. Olaf and Macalester colleges, and at the St. Paul Conservatory of Music where she has created a viola da gamba method for children and non-string players called the Passamezzo Method.


    Paul Berget received his B.F.A. degree from the University of Minnesota in 1972. After graduation, he continued his studies with the legendary Diana Poulton at the Royal College of Music in London, where he also studied with acclaimed lutenist Nigel North. In 1973, he appeared on Broadway in a musical production of Cyrano starring Christopher Plummer.

    • Illusion Theater, 528 Hennepin Avenue (8th floor), Minneapolis MN 55403



    Mark Benninghofen’s beautiful new play UCCELLINI, (Little Birds in Italian), examines one extraordinary woman’s battle to survive the last weeks of WWII in occupied Rome, 1944 while struggling to come to terms with her final days in New York City, 2005.

    It is an Italian story of art and love, choice and consequence…of memories and the reality lurking just behind them.  Centered on the infamous Via Rasella bombing in March 1944, the play explores the desperate lengths to which ordinary Italians were forced…just to get by and gives voice to one of the three men never identified in the Fosse Ardeatine massacre.

    Following a casual reception in the lobby we will present a Staged Reading of the play. This simple, stripped down theater form will focus entirely on the text and the actors...a spectacular cast under the guidance of Internationally renowned director Joe Dowling.  A brief Q&A will follow for those who wish to remain. 

    In English. Running time: 95 Minutes. 
    Seating is extremely limited for this one-night-only event.


    Don’t miss this exciting opportunity
    to participate in the earliest stage of
    a new play’s life
    .

    Bollicine d'Oro - Golden Italian Bubbles vs. Champagne


    Taste and linger through North-East Italy’s regions of Lombardy, Veneto, and Friuli Venezia Giulia.

    Learn how the Italian golden bubbles differ and compete with Champagne. Understand the history, geography and evolution of their production methods and then taste and compare the highest quality Prosecco, Franciacorta, and two kinds of Champagne.

    The name Prosecco is taken from the name of an Italian village near Trieste (Friuli Venezia Giulia), where the grape and the wine may have originated. In 2019, Le Colline del Prosecco di Conegliano e Valdobbiadene became an Unesco World Heritage Site (Veneto).

    Franciacorta with DOCG status is produced with grapes grown on the hills located between the southern shore of Lake Iseo and the city of Brescia (Lombardy).

    The wine tasting will be expertly lead by David Johnson, Certified Sommelier through the Court of Master Sommeliers. He is passionate about Italy, its wines, and its beautiful language.

    The tasting will be held on Thursday, November 21st, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM, at Roam Interiors' furniture, lighting and design showroom in Minneapolis. You will have the opportunity to view several lines of modern Italian furniture, housewares, and kitchen utensils.
