Centrodarte22: Opera Libera

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 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.
