A new week full of events starts with Summer at MAXXI.
It begins on Tuesday 22 June with a double appointment: at 6.30 pm, in the MAXXI auditorium, introduced by Giovanna Melandri, President of the MAXXI Foundation, the Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Jhumpa Lahiri meets the museum public to present her latest book Il quaderno di Nerina, in conversation with Valerio Magrelli and Sandro Veronesi.
The volume, published by Guanda, tells of Nerina, a woman without a surname like a classical or medieval poet. Who is Nerina? The woman who, Jhumpa Lahiri assures us, wrote the verses collected in this book. The writer becomes a reader and even invokes the intervention of a third mysterious person: a scholar who helps her to put order in a ball of stanzas and lives that are not hers – but could be ours.

At 9 pm, Francesco Vezzoli, one of the best known, established and internationally appreciated Italian authors, will be in connection with the museum’s auditorium, in conversation with Stefano Karadjov, Director of the Brescia Museums Foundation, Bartolomeo Pietromarchi, Director of MAXXI Arte and Marcello Blackbeard, Professor of Greek and Roman Archeology (Sapienza University of Rome), to present Archaeological Stages. Curatorial interventions by Francesco Vezzoli, a project that sees him involved in the dual role of artist and curator. Palcoscenici Archeologica is an unprecedented exhibition project that is part of the project line of exhibitions conceived by the Brescia Museums Foundation to propose a dialogue between the historical and archaeological heritage with voices of contemporary art. The 2021 initiative is part of the program of celebrations for the return to the city of Brescia of the Winged Victory, the Roman bronze set up again in its ancient location in the Capitolium. The project is co-financed by the Italian Council 7 Edition, 2019 program for the promotion of Italian contemporary art in the world of the General Direction for Contemporary Creativity of the Ministry of Culture.

Thursday 24 June, at 9 pm, the music returns with Luca Barbarossa who, in conversation with the music journalist Ernesto Assante, presents the book Don’t lose anything (Mondadori). The meeting will be accompanied by musical interventions in acoustic, and will be followed by a signature copy with the artist.
While preparations are underway for his sixtieth birthday party, Luca is both the happy father and the little boy who is pondering the escape in order not to miss appointments with the unexpected. He escapes the dictatorship of the registry office, setting off freely aboard pages that pulsate with extraordinary encounters with Maradona and Pavarotti, Benigni and Bruce Springsteen, no more important and formative than those with a Spanish stripper, a Cuban fisherman, a Mexican magician and his rooster Django. Do not miss anything is his irregular autobiography, almost a coming-of-age novel that proceeds by hitchhiking to the memory, to return to the European squares that as a teenager he beat with Texan boots on his feet and guitar on his shoulder, or to the big stages, to the Sanremo successes , making fun of time that “gets longer, shortens, is premature, late. Sometimes, however, it is surprisingly punctual ”.

Finally, Saturday 26 June at 11 am, Massimo Cerofolini, presenter of Eta Beta on Rai Radio 1, interview with experts of the digital revolution to tell how start-ups and creative ingenuity change our habits: public administration, assistance, health, school, tourism , food, culture, information, e-commerce. In synergy with the research lines of the MAXXI “laboratory of the future”, in this episode, live from the great hall of the Museum, artificial intelligence is at the center of the dialogue with Father Paolo Benanti.
