The dance show inspired by one of Verga’s masterpieces at the archaeological area of ​​Solunto

It will be the dance show inspired by one of Giovanni Verga’s masterpieces to mark the turning point of “Visione Meridiana”, the artistic project conceived by Aurelio Gatti and Vito Meccio and promoted by the Regional Department of Cultural Heritage and Sicilian Identity, dedicated to the Mediterranean man.
Friday 26 August, at 9 pm (free admission subject to availability), the archaeological area of ​​Solunto, in Santa Flavia, will host the performance “La Lupa”, choreography by Carlotta Bruni born from an idea by Aurelio Gatti, with the dancers Lucia Cinquegrana, Polina Lukanska and Matteo Gentiluomo.
Giovanni Verga’s “La lupa” prompts us to question the power and impotence of social schemes and conventions. The she-wolf seems to live beyond good and evil, in a dimension of excess of being, and all those who come across her can only take refuge in the “institutions” of religion and the law. Reason and religion are the great allies and the great absentees from the horizon of this novel, published in 1880.
We speak of the wolf as we would speak of the devil, because its ability to deconstruct the human rational equilibrium is comparable only to the evil force of Satan, with which only religion can and must oppose, but even Father Angiolino of Santa Maria di Gesù, a true servant of God, he had lost his soul for her.
In the text the relationship that is established between temptation, religion and magic is emblematic, and the choreographer Carlotta Bruni is on this aspect that centers her creation. Love and death fight hard without any possibility of compromise. Beyond the rather simple fable, the attention lies in human tragedy in necessarily strong colors. It is here that the authenticity of realism, of which Verga is one of the greatest exponents, gives us back an archaic, rough world, with primeval emotions, in which eros and ethos fight in a duel that can only have its epilogue in death. .
“Visione Meridiana” is a project carried out by the Agricantus Cooperative of Palermo and by Estreusa of Caltanissetta with the support of the national network of Stone Theaters. The program ends on Sunday 28 August at the Arab Bath of Cefalà Diana with the staging of “PerSéFone” by Ghianni Ritsos, with Elisa Di Dio directed by Filippa Ilardo.

Personal exhibition in Villa Filangeri, by the painter Valeria Rotolo Romynartnaif

From 23 to 26 July 2022 at Villa Filangeri in Santa Flavia (PA), there will be the personal exhibition of the painter Valeria Rotolo in art Romynartnaif from Bagheria. The exhibition will follow the following times from 17.00 to 23.00.
The exhibition is sponsored by the Municipality of Santa Flavia and in collaboration with the Pro Loco of Santa Flavia.
Romynartnaif offers a series of works depicting all the most representative monuments of our territory and that of Palermo.
The artist has already exhibited in several exhibitions where he exhibited paintings representing “Ballarò” (historic market of Palermo) and other points of the city such as the well-known “Piazza Pretoria” or the “Cathedral of Palermo”.
In this Bagherese exhibition, the artist wants to represent the eighteenth-century villas of Bagheria and its most important monuments, with a naive style where history blends with the contemporary that comes to life through the gushing and understood colors, intensifying the salient architectural forms. The canons of representation introduced in the works simplify the forms resulting in a simplification of the color and in the conception of the perspective plane. Typical style with a naive imprint with the intent of representing a social reality with a fable-like incipit.
Valeria Rotolo was born in Palermo in 1975 and followed her schooling in Bagheria at the institute of art, over the years cultivating her passion for painting with an original style of representing places that remain etched in her soul. Some of the works produced so far have been exhibited at the Palazzo Ducale in Genoa in an exhibition held in March 2022, another exhibition was held in Rome in April 2022 and another in Milan art designer week 2022, in addition to participation at the exhibition of the international fair of Montecarlo 2022 and participation in various contests.

The Three Pools: the natural treasure candidate for the places in the heart of the FAI

The cove of the three swimming pools is one of the most beautiful accesses to the sea in Bagheria and Santa Flavia, in the province of Palermo. It is a wonderful rocky coast located at the foot of the majestic Capo Zafferano. It is said that the popular name attributed to what on nautical maps is called Cala dell’Osta, is due to the fact that Cala dell’Osta is divided into three coves, which, due to the calm of the waters and the green-blue color, are reminiscent of swimming pools.

Others argue that the name derives from real lakes, which form on the rocks in winter. The more recent name Cala del Cuore is due to a red heart affixed to the rocks. Whatever the origin of the name, the cove is among the most popular with citizens and visitors, who use it as a beach and for sunbathing, also because in summer it is illuminated until sunset.
The rocky bottom is relatively shallow in the first few meters and gradually reaches about ten meters, making it a perfect place for snorkeling and diving. The lower area is made up of rocks, among which several paths wind up that climb high on a limestone cliff of about 15 meters.
The cliff protects the area from the wind on three sides, leaving it exposed only to the north-west. Above the cove, separating it from the entrance and from Via Perez, a large expanse of wind dunes: a wild Mediterranean landscape, populated with plants that bloom all year round, coloring it red in summer and yellow in winter. For some years the Next association of Bagheria has adopted the cove, and is developing projects for the protection and enhancement of this natural treasure.
The slightest of the problems in the area is that of the signs, there is no signage that signals the entrance, directions, provides information on the routes and the conduct to be adopted, there are no danger signs to delimit the safety spaces. The path is interspersed with walls, steps and mud, despite the slight slopes that would allow people with wheelchairs to frequent at least the area of ​​the dunes, in total safety.
The concrete paths close to the cliff were built more than 40 years ago, many steps have been skipped and the concrete path at the top has shrunk to the point of becoming dangerous. The same state of decay is obviously common to the entire area of ​​the platforms, which despite repeated cleaning by associations and volunteers is soiled by the incivility of a few, who forget to take their waste away.

Splendor and nobility at Villa Filangeri

On Sunday 27 September in Santa Flavia, at the prestigious location of Villa Filangeri, the event “Splendore e nobiltà” will take place, a cultural journey between stories, music and clothes.
The event is organized by the “Events and Culture” Association with the patronage of the Sicilian Regional Assembly and the Municipality of Santa Flavia.
The event will have as a media partner the precious contribution of the Tourist Association Pro Loco of Santa Flavia, the Siciliando community and the La Piana d’Oro Association.
The gates of the villa will be open at 5 pm, and until 8 pm, visitors will be accompanied on a pleasant historical-cultural itinerary where they can admire the exhibition located in the rooms of the building, listening to the stories and customs of the noble families.

A history spanning more than two centuries, from the 1600s to the early 1900s, which will take shape with the period costumes created by the costume designer Ignazio Rondone, of the cultural association “Gruppo storico Conte Rutelli” of Valledolmo.
Rondone has created, in twenty years of tailoring activity, as many as 500 dresses ranging from the Middle Ages to the period of the Leopard. A fine collection that has led him to set up exhibitions throughout Sicily and to see his clothes paraded with pride in important events such as the Castellana di Caccamo.
To avoid crowds, there is a shift of guided visits, which will be reserved, from time to time, to a small number of people.
From 8.45 pm the notes of the most famous classical music composers will echo in the courtyard with the string quartet composed of Virginia Gurrera (1st violin), Federico Castelluccio (2nd violin), Salvatore D’Amato (viola) and Giuseppe D’Amato (cello).
A unique opportunity because the concert will be in an acoustic version with the sound of the instruments pure, without any amplification, just as it happened at the time of the aristocratic families that we intend to pay homage during the event.
Also in this case unlimited access cannot be allowed, but to allow more people to enjoy the performance, the concert will be divided into two mini concerts lasting about half an hour each. The first shift must be at the entrance at 20:30, the second at 21:15.
In order not to exceed the allowed number and to guarantee the right distance, it is mandatory to book by writing an email to the address:
The organization will communicate to interested parties the availability of seats and the turn in which it will be possible to attend the musical performance.
It is specified that access to the event will be regulated at the entrance to the monumental complex of Villa Filangeri by the organizing staff who will take care to collect visitor data and measure the temperature. Entry to those without a mask will be categorically forbidden.
The event is free of charge.
After the conclusion of the event, Villa Filangeri will host the clothes from the aforementioned collection until Friday 2 October, respecting the same opening hours as the municipal offices located there.
