In 2022, the University of Padua and the Centro d’Arte came together to share in a spectacular season of musical performances. As the University celebrates its 800th Anniversary with a rich program of activities, the Centro d’Arte organizes the musical initiatives through research, contemplation, and its expertise in the field of music.
Therefore, Centrodarte22 becomes an Opera Libera, by interpreting and developing the ancient motto of the University of Padua- Universa Universis Patavina Libertas. Freedom, like that of the University’s unwavering freedom in research, is the theme its season of musical performances, upholding the character of autonomous expression that defines Centro d’Arte.
On May 16, Opera Libera presents Michele Sambin, author, actor, musician, set designer, inventor of visions, a much loved artist in his city: Padua celebrates his pioneering work as a video artist. The Art Center, thanks to the work of the University’s Computational Sonology Center, presents a digital version of “Il tempo consuma”, a performance from 1974.
