DOVE SONO GLI ULTRAS
What would have Carl Gustav Jung though withstanding the south end of the “Olimpico” stadium during the Roman soccer derby? The visual artist Cristiano Carotti answers this question through his first solo show in Rome: ‘Dove sono gli ultras’. The show, curated by Eleonora Aloise and Carlo Maria Lolli Ghetti, will open at the White Noise Gallery, the 19th of November and will last until the 22nd of December 2016. An original soundtrack, written by Rodrigo D’Erasmo from the Afterhours, will work as a background for the corpus of around 20 new artworks that Cristiano Carotti will use in order to separate the Symbol from its natural background and morphing it into art. Roman crosses, panthers, devils, skulls, bears, bulldogs are some of the icons taken right from banners, flags, t-shirts and soccer team scarves and then merged into art. Cristiano Carotti is a multidisciplinary artist who often collaborates with fellow artists from different areas – from Filippo Timi to Vinicio Capossela, from the performer Franko B to the Afterhours – being able to use different mediums such as performance, music or video art (his new video “Camera Red”, produced by Versus and codirected with the artist Desiderio has been nominated for the best movie award at the Istanbul Fashion Film Festival). In the new idiom: ‘Dove sono gli ultras’ there are no more question marks where they used to be. What it used to be a yelled by hooligans to provoke rival supporters, is now used by an artist, under a Jungian perspective, to recall that point, inside all of us, where the archetype meets our rational ego, influencing it and generating particular social behaviours. Historically speaking, the Symbol has always been the centre of aggregation of armies, political groups and supporters due to its ability to recall universal ideas and forms such as Darkness, Death and Gods. Around the Symbol builds up a sense of faith that often goes beyond its origin and ends up dominating the single conscience. Nazism, as an example, has been one of the worst and clearest demonstrations of transfer from personal to collective conscience, thanks to the use of an ancient iconography that was de-contextualized and filled with new, sinister, meanings. Carotti is trying to tell us that, paraphrasing Jung, each of us, when dominated by an archetype, is actually an ultras. The artist has used the Ultras symbolism as a starting point and for a wider analysis. We are withstanding an era of radical changes and deep crisis of western cultural values. Often ignoring history, western Democracies can be easily seduced by new spectres that roam over Europe: temptation to choose from despotic behaviours and flattery of populism. Therefore Carotti’s analysis of symbol through the celebration of its communication potential happens to be very significant. The symbol is able to underline the sense of defeat of western rational ideas in favour of tribal dynamics thanks to its communicative, cohesive and totemic strength. The gestural approach, the materic oil paint left on canvasses, scarves, jackets, banners – with a clear recall to ancient relics – together with the soundtrack from Rodrigo D’Erasmo that swaps the usual choruses of a stadium with a melody for violins, are crucial in creating a separation between symbols and their functional, original, dimensions. The show will feature the sculpture “Finding Mephistophele” that has been created between August and September 2016 during an artist residency at the HALLE 14 Contemporary art center in Leipzig. Inspired by an archetypical image (the shadow) historically embedded in city’s imaginary, “Finding Mephistophele” describes the bond between Leipzig and Goethe’s Faust, a masterpiece that C.G. Jung used to love. “Dove sono gli ultras” is the occasion to meet the work of an artist who is deeply aware of present time’s complexity and who’s able to determine, with extreme precision, the hidden meanings between the clusters of contemporary life.

350 anni di creatività
The French Academy in Rome – Villa Médicis is presenting, from 14 October 2016 to 15 January 2017, the exhibition 350 Years of Creativity: The Artists of the French Academy in Rome from Louis XIV to the Present. The curator is Jérôme Delaplanche, history of art coordinator at the French Academy in Rome. Founded by Louis XIV in 1666, the Academy is celebrating its 350th anniversary this year with a special series of events retracing its history. This exhibition is one of the program's high points and is accompanied by two others in Rome, organized by the Accademia Nazionale di San Luca and the Accademia di Belle Arti di Roma and focusing on their relationships with the French Academy. 350 Years of Creativity is a chance for the visitor to discover the creative output of artists at the Academy—both residents and directors—during their stays in Rome. It includes over a hundred works dating from 1666 to the present day, by artists including Fragonard, David, Ingres, Berlioz, Garnier, Carpeaux, Debussy, and Balthus. In the course of a fascinating journey through three and half centuries of French art, visitors are offered a closer look at the Academy and its successive generations of creators. 350 Years of Creativity illustrates the high points of the Academy's long life with works by its leading artists presented under the following headings: the ancient and modern quest for the ideal; the discovery of picturesque reality; the relationship with the body and the nude; the significance of the move to the Villa Médicis; eclecticism and the value of originality; new life for tradition; and the Academy as a center for creative experiment. The exhibition itinerary brings together paintings, drawings, statues, prints, musical scores, and archival material as testimony to the sheer artistic variety the institution has produced. Some of these works come from the Academy's own collection, notably portraits by residents and the plaster statues. The exhibition closes with a video of works created by residents over the last few decades. For the visitor all this adds up to an opportunity to survey the history of French art from 1666 to 2016. 350 Years of Creativity will also be accompanied by other events—screenings, encounters, concerts—presented at the Villa Médicis as part of the series "Thursdays at the Villa. Art Matters". It will conclude with a symposium on 11–13 January 2017 with the Accademia Nazionale di San Luca and the Accademia di Belle Arti di Roma, titled "Art Academies: Heritage and Contemporary Art Issues". The exhibition catalogue is published by Officina Libraria (in French and Italian) Exhibition hours: Tuesday–Sunday, 10 am – 7 pm (doors close at 6:30 pm) Admission to the exhibition and the guided tour of the Villa Médicis and its gardens: 12 € / concessions* 6 €. Free admission to the exhibition every Thursday, 5 – 7 pm (doors close at 6:30 pm)

An impressive archaeological site located at Circus Maximus will open to the public on November 17th. After 2800 years of history, this hidden treasure will finally be unveiled. Over the centuries, this imposing site has been the scene of many transformations. Indeed, horse races, public executions, religious processions and theatrical performances have taken place in this central area of Rome. Circus Maximus also transformed itself during the nineteenth century to host agricultural productions, mills and small craft shops. Visitors may access the site by Piazza di Porta Capena.
