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.

The Opera Libera concert series is part of the University of Padua’s 800th Anniversary Celebrations.

The spectacular season of musical performances opens with a true mini-festival based on the philosophical principles of freedom by welcoming the Irreversible Entanglements to Padua. Performing over three nights (February 8, 9, and 10) with solo, duo, and collective shows.  Irreversible Entanglements consists of five individuals whose artistic vision combines Black life and culture under a collaborative and revolutionary sound, including the poet Camae Ayewa a/k/a Moor Mother, a charismatic legend and leader of Afrofuturist music, art, and community activism.
