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 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 of its season of musical performances, upholding the character of autonomous expression that defines Centro d’Arte.

The autumn concert season of Centrodarte22 – Opera Libera opens on October 23 at Multiplex MPX with a reincarnation of the experimental Swedish supergroup Fire! Padua welcomes the core members of the group Mats Gustafsson, Johan Berthling, and Andreas Werliin who bring a new and original production entitled Fire! Italian Defeat to Centro d’Arte in collaboration with Area Sismica (Forli) and Circolo Controtempo (Gorizia). The production includes the formation of nine elements created for the first time and specifically for this occasion by welcoming Zoe Pia, Valeria Sturba, Sebi Tramontana and Sara Ardizzoni as the ‘Italian Component’ performing alongside five Scandinavian performers from the Fire! supergroup. The nine elements offer a collective moment of improvisational creativity as an organic continuation of the sold-out Centroarte21 concert held at Padua’s Teatro Verdi.


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

The theme of freedom behind the Opera Libera concert series is an echo of the need to highlight more women in musical creativity.  Freedom, as a reflection of the post-colonial cultural identity that places a value upon African-American music, forever influencing contemporary society, language, poetry, and art. The musical initiatives proposed by Centro d’Arte demonstrate how various artistic practices bring meaning to music that is truly in tune with the times from composition to improvisation, and the technology developed to create new sounds. The Centro d’Arte is dedicated to supporting the University of Padua in celebrating freedom in scientific and technological research in relation to the development of artistic languages.
