Futurist Week to refresh out memory of Italy’s noise engineers
More than a century ago, Italy witnessed something that would for ever change art and its forms of expression. In 1913, the Futurist painter Luigi Russolo published his manifesto L'arte dei Rumori (The Art of Noises) in response to Francesco Balilla Pratella’s Manifesto dei musicisti futuristi (Manifesto of Futurist Musicians), encompassing the fundamental ideas for the new music of the modern age. The legacy of the Italian noise engineers will be recalled at Futurist Week, within which from 22 to 30 November Prague will host performances of historical and contemporary Futurist music, featuring special instruments: intonarumori (noise intoners).
On Thursday 30 November from 6 pm, at the Trade Fair Palace of The National Gallery in Prague Luciano Chessa will give a lecture titled Music the dead can hear, devoted to the Italian Futurist painter and musician Luigi Russolo.
The event has been organised by the Italian Cultural Institute in Prague, Czech Radio, the National Gallery in Prague, the Agosto Foundation and re-set production.
