Corposamente 2012 - DimensioniVariabili - La Sesta Traccia
Emilia Romagna

Durante il festival "Corposamente 2012" il collettivo artistico DimensioniVariabili ha creato questa installazione che suggerisce una critica al percorso di avvicinamento alla candidatura di Ravenna a capitale europea della cultura nel 2019. La città di Ravenna ha avviato il suo percorso seguendo "le cinque tracce" suggerite dall'amministrazione. Le orme lasciate dagli spettatori che all'entrata del festival camminano sul tappeto di libri sono elementi che si accumulano e si aggiungono al resto per creare un'opera collettiva. Qualcos'altro esiste, questa è la Sesta Traccia, qualcosa che la gente porta con sè, qualcosa legato alla terra, alle radici, indipendente dalla sovrastruttura programmata, qualcosa di non prevedibile, di estemporaneo, ma legato a quella genialità della gente che troppo spesso non trova il modo di poter essere espressa. Genialità raffigurata in quella specie di sudario impresso da DissensoCognitivo sulle assi di legno che poggiano sui libri aperti.

More About Italy

The name "Italy" is shrouded in mystery; some etymologists trace it to a Greek word meaning "the land of young cattle."Italy was fond of Jupiter and Mars from the very start, Jupiter for fatherly good luck and Mars for war!But it all began with Rome. Rome was founded by Romulus and Remus who were sons of Rhea and Mars.The twins were abandoned at birth out of a fear that they would grow up and later overthrow Amelius, usurper of their grandfather's rightful throne.Wrongful mis-doings most foul! Treachery and sabotage!! HOW would these two blessed infants make their way in such a world?As it turns out, the twins didn't have to make their way very far, because one of them killed the other one and then they weren't twins anymore. But that happens later.First they got rescued by a she-wolf who suckled them with her milk and raised them as her own until they were discovered by the shepherd Faustulus.Faustulus fed them meat and bread and also raised them as his own until they were old enough to return to Amelius and hack him up as planned. They reinstated the grandfather Numitor to his rightful throne and went off to celebrate by starting a town of their own.They chose a hilly area where the mama wolf had saved them from certain death in the barren wilderness and began scouting locations.Romulus liked one hill. Remus liked another. The circle of crows like Romulus' hill, so Romulus killed Remus and named the town after himself. Thus Rome was born and Italy with it.Text by Steve Smith.
