Revolutions

On the occasion of the 800th Anniversary of the University of Padua, the Gabinetto di Lettura Association organizes the Rivoluzione review, supported by the Dipartimento Beni Culturali (Cultural Heritage Department).  The review includes four meetings, each paying tribute to revolutionary Unipd alumni that are told through biographical and musical journeys.

The Rivoluzione review, conceived and curated by Paola Cattaneo, aims to create a unique and original narrative of historical biographies with new and interesting points of view. The review is a tribute to the 800 years of revolutionary knowledge, culture, and traditions of which the University of Padua has sustained over the centuries.

The first part of each meeting begins by welcoming a special guest, who give a voice to a renowned University of Padua alumni. Special guests for each meeting include David Riondino, Mario Tozzi, Moni Ovadia and Sandro Cappelletto as they pay tribute to Andrea Vesalius, Nicolaus Copernicus, Luigi Meneghello and Giacomo Casanova, respectively.

A second part of each meeting is dedicated to a musical performance, made possible thanks to the organizational and extraordinary collaboration of the Fondazione Orchestra di Padova e del Veneto (Foundation  Orchestra of Padua and Veneto – OPV).

The music director of OPV, Marco Angius, presents two concerts based on the Rivoluzione review. With two meeting that welcome the participation of the Solisti Veneti and the Concentus Musicus Patavinus, set up by the Cultural Heritage Department of the University

The four revolutions of the review are illustrated through the language of music, creating a unique dialogue alongside the four portraits of the famous University of Padua alumni.

The Rivoluzione review is made possible thanks to the financial support of its main sponsor Molino Favero, a prestigious and historic company of Padua since 1925.

Participation in the Rivoluzione review meetings are free upon registration.
