Magister Giotto
Scuola Grande della Misericordia, Venice
From 13 July to 5 November 2017

 

Magister is a new format that aims at promoting art, culture, entertainment internationally – produced by Cose Belle d’Italia Media Entertainment – that will present yearly, from 2017 to 2019, three monographic exhibitions to be held in Venice at the majestic Scuola Grande della Misericordia, each one of them dedicated to a great Master and a key figure of a specific era in Italian art – Giotto (late Middle Age), Canova (Neoclassic age) and Raphael (Renaissance).

For each exhibition, a dedicated Scientific Committee will be established to include the leading experts of each artist in order to generate a special format that will combine scientific research and multimedia technology in an original and innovative way. In addition, each exhibition will be supported by well-known figures in Italian culture such as musicians, writers, actors, set designers, to create music, texts, readings, unique and innovative settings. The aim of the project is to enable the viewers to experience a high-profile cultural and artistic path in which unique set-ups, knowledge and entertainment blend together to give life to a single experience that encompasses empathic engagement and individual participation.

To celebrate the 750 years from the birth of Giotto, Magister Giotto is the debuting exhibition of the trilogy, to be held at the Scuola Grande della Misericordia in Venice, from July 13 to November 5, 2017. Set up within the imposing spaces of the Scuola Grande della Misericordia, the 45-minute exhibition’s path unravels between the ground and first floors where the visitor will be accompanied by the voice of a well-known Italian actor and music by a famous contemporary composer, also Italian, via individual headphones.

Magister Giotto will illustrate the artist’s production through a visual and sound path and the significance of his groundbreaking works with a sequence of highly impactful sensorial set-ups. The fresco cycle of the Life of St. Francis in Assisi, the Scrovegni Chapel in Padua, the majestic Crucifixes and the other works carried out in Florence are at the core of the narrative framework that ends with the Giotto Mission, operated in 1986 by the European Space Agency, that for the first time in history flew by and studied the Halley Comet, depicted in the Adorations of the Magi inside the Scrovegni Chapel in Padua.
