is the title of this year’s event, and the US contribution will be Intoniamo...i rumori??
From Filippo Tommaso Marinetti to Luigi Russolo, via Carlo Carrà, Futurism energetically celebrated modernity in its various forms of expression: speed, sound, dynamism, and technology. Following in Futurism’s footsteps, and recalling the sound poetry of Marinetti and Russolo’s Intonarumori
(noise instruments), the educational department of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection will invite children to experiment with instruments of their own invention evoking the everyday sounds all around them, whether the sounds of nature or the mechanical and artificial noises of modern day machinery.
Participation in each one-hour long workshop is free, is designed for children from 4 to 10 years of age, and is scheduled from 11 am and 3 pm on February 7, 8, 14, 15, 17
at the Arsenale, in Venice. Book by telephoning +39 041 5218828 or via e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
