By Center for Italian Modern Art
An Evening of Literature at CIMA
Join us for a talk on Alberto Savinio’s portrayal of female protagonists from Greek mythology by CIMA Fellow Serena Alessi and Bard College’s Franco Baldasso, together with some readings of original Savinio texts by Sara Fruner. Savinio’s modern reinterpretation of the Greek myths will be at the center of a discussion about the artist’s multidisciplinary production and his eccentric literary talent. Ariadne, Penelope, and Alcesti are the heroines of Savinio’s novels, theater, and fiction. In the midst of Savinio’s outstanding paintings, the conversation will delve into his literary world from a unique viewpoint—his special relationship with the great mythical women of pre-classic Greece as well as with modern divas such as Isadora Duncan.
