Festival Luigi Nono alla Giudecca is an interdisciplinary project, to listen to and watch, dedicated to the Venetian composer Luigi Nono (Venice, 29.01.1924 – 8.5.1990) who lived on this island for most of his life. Promoted by FALN, the Festival collaborates with different entities that work in the cultural, social and artistic fields: SILOS Art Inside Venezia; Emergency, sede di Venezia; Centro Culturale “Renato Nardi”; Centro Teatrale di Ricerca; CZ95 – Centro Culturale Zitelle; Teatro Junghans – Accademia Teatrale Veneta; IVESER Istituto Veneziano per la Storia della Resistenza e della società contemporanea; Spazio Bocciofila; Studio Giudecca 860; Spazio Punch; Cantiere Navale Gruppo Faldis; ARCI Luigi Nono; Trattoria Altanella; CUCINA SNACK “La Palanca”.

The festival aims to show a comprehensive portrait of Luigi Nono’s life and work on the Giudecca with events of music and dance, expositions of photographs and of documents, screenings of audiovisual documents, meetings with students, readings and a round table discussion.

The background is Giudecca during the years of the postwar reconstruction, when important battles for civil, scholastic and social rights were being carried out.

All the associations and institutions involved participate with activities specifically created for this project. The Luigi Nono Archive is offering all the relevant documents for the realization of the various projects that connect his biography to the Giudecca’s historical and social context, from the 1950s to the present.
