Editorial presentation La cala
One hundred days in Libyan prisons
Giuseppe Ciulla and Catia Catania in conversation with Riccardo Iacona

It is nine o’clock in the evening of September 1, 2020. A group of fishing boats is pounding the seabed in front of the Gulf of Sirte, thirty-four miles north of Benghazi: that is where the red shrimp is, the gold for which the people of Mazara have been fighting for fifty years. That night, the Libyan captain who intercepted them will do some serious hunting: at the head of a crew of corsairs who shoot wildly, he seizes four fishing boats and eighteen fishermen and takes them to Benghazi as precious loot to offer to General Khalifa Haftar. From that moment and for 108 days, the fishermen are held prisoner by the militias of the leader of Libya Cyrenaica, victims of violence, mortification, threats, mock executions.

Giuseppe Ciulla is a journalist and television author. Born in Mazara del Vallo, he lives in Rome, works at la7 and has made reportages and documentaries in the Balkans and the Middle East: Capulcu (2014) and Prigionieri, fuga dall’Isis (2015). He has written investigations and travel stories: Lupi nella nebbia (2010), Ai confini dell’impero (2011), Un’estate in Grecia (2013).
Catia Catania is a blogger and organizer of literary reviews and cultural events. She lives in Mazara del Vallo and is the author, along with other activists of Addiopizzo, of the book “Sicilia. Una guida non convenzionale.”

Talks

News at breakfast.
Press review with Riccardo Iacona

Second of three appointments with an authoritative voice of Italian journalism, dedicated to reading and commenting main articles of the week regarding the relationship between food and technology.

Workshop

MAST.AUDITORIUM

Maurizio Montagna Workshop
Food photography

Food photographs have invaded our daily lives. Vernacular photography, through an almost obsessive practice, defines an anarchic and new model of communication; but food carries with it an infinite iconographic value. This lecture offers an examination of an unusual photographic genre, which, since the dawn of photography, has persistently represented what we eat.

Performance

MAMBO – MUSEO D’ARTE MODERNA DI BOLOGNA –
SALONE DELLE CIMINIERE

MARCO COLONNA: SOLO
Bass clarinet and clarinet
Jan Groover exhibition accompanied by music

In collaboration with Bologna Jazz Festival

Born in Rome in 1978, active as a multi-instrumentalist, composer, improviser and writer, Marco Colonna is one of the most prominent names in today’s Italian jazz more inclined to experimentation. Lately he has chosen to dedicate himself to the bass clarinet in order to explore all the nuances of this instrument also playing two or three instruments at the same time. Marco Colonna’s research on sound takes place in solitude, thinking, creating and freeing himself from any stylistic mask. But it is also the result of a process based on the removal of every technical and physical limit. A research based on the idea of a clash between images experienced directly or simply seen, in contrast with personal emotionality.

Performance

Trio M
Myra Melford, piano
Mark Dresser, double bass
Matt Wilson, drum

In collaboration with Bologna Jazz Festival

Trio M, baptized playing on the common initials of the three components, was born from the meeting of some of the most peculiar and visionary creativity of the American scene. An authentic all-star group that met for the first time in 2006 and that in these fifteen years has made numerous world tours and produced two acclaimed records: “Big Picture” (Cryptogramophone, 2007) and “The Guest House” (Enja/Yellowbird, 2011). Being a collective project, the compositions and original arrangements are signed by all three musicians, but collective is not only the writing, but the aesthetics that underlies the way we play together. In concert the trio lives on the constant interplay, on an absolute mutual listening that allows them to develop the improvisational ideas launched by the individual protagonists, generating a music that blends the maximum freedom of expression, the rigor of the language of classic and modern jazz.
