The exhibition will be located in the spaces adjacent to MUBATT – Museum of the Battle of Ceresole d’Alba in Piazza Vittorio Emanuele, 2 and will be open until May 5, 2024, during museum opening hours.

Next, we will move to the Town Hall of Ceresole d’Alba, where they will be placed in the town center Three plaques respectively dedicated to Iranian and Afghan women artists., forced to operate in the darkness of history and the indifference of the world, and to the memory of Francesca Alinovi, the promising art critic crushed in her youth by an unhealthy notion of love.

Specifically, they will be placed in the courtyard of the Municipal Palace at 14 Regina Margherita Street, adjacent to the already present five tiles bearing the names of important women artists who, with their experience, tell the story of “female” art at the international level and whose singular and unique stories can be known through a special QRcode.

Entertainment

At 5 p.m., at MIDA – International Museum of Women Artists – free theatrical intervention “Women and Art” by actress Monica Martinelli.

The monologue will take its cue from from Virginia Woolf’s well-known and ever timely essay: “A Room of One’s Own” published by the writer in 1929 after expounding its contents the previous year in two lectures given at the women’s colleges of Newnham and Girton (Cambridge University) entitled “Woman and the Novel.”

The writer questions-and questions the female audience in attendance-about the significance of the relationship between women and writing, plumbing the centuries to reconstruct the history of the absence — blatant yet silent — of women’s voices in culture, society, and art, and the consequences that such exclusion has entailed for women and for society itself.

Music

At 6 p.m., musical intervention at the Ceresole d’Alba Parish Theater in Vittorio Emanuele II Square, where Sawa Kuninobu and Antonello Labanca, first violinist and double bassist, respectively, of the RAI National Symphony Orchestra, will perform an audience-friendly symphonic performance.

Turismo in Langa

Dal 1988 l’obiettivo dell’Associazione Turismo in Langa è quello di valorizzare le bellezze del territorio, assecondandone l’inevitabile vocazione turistica. Nel corso degli anni abbiamo lavorato con impegno e passione, in stretta collaborazione con le amministrazioni pubbliche, con volontari e produttori, per la valorizzazione del territorio. Anche noi, così, possiamo dire d’aver contribuito a rendere le Langhe celebri in tutto il mondo per il turismo enogastronomico, ma soprattutto per il loro straordinario patrimonio paesaggistico e culturale, per i castelli, i musei e per le tante iniziative. Oggi l’impegno di Turismo in Langa continua, sospinto dai successi ottenuti in questi anni: insieme a soci e collaboratori, non ci stanchiamo di immaginare nuovi itinerari e ideare eventi e manifestazioni innovative.
