FESTIVAL BAROQUE DE PONTOISE # MIGRAZIONE. DES ITALIENS HORS D'ITALIE
25 September 2020 to 21 June 2021
In 2020, we will celebrate some important anniversaries, Caldara and Bononcini (350th), Ortiz and Rossi (450th), Beethoven and Tartini (250th). From them, a lot of Italians who have made their art travel in all European courts.
For its 35th edition, the Baroque Festival of Pontoise seeks to understand how Italy, which literally culturally colonized all of Europe in the 17th and 18th centuries, can today fear the contribution of other cultures, and more specifically those of the South?
Music, dance, literature, cinema, all fields of creation will be open to encourage everyone to reflect on the mobility of the arts or people, on the richness of the blends that have made the cultural identity of France, of Spain, England, Austria or what was to become Germany.
