the Fondazione Morra presents Gruppo 63/50 anni: i poeti leggono i poeti, an event dedicated to the sperimental and visual poetry of Gruppo 63. The showing of artists’ film, curated by Giuseppe Morra and Tommaso Ottonieri, will follow it.

In the 1963 poets, writers, reviewers, academics and musicians and also visual artists met in Palermo, Sicily, animated by rejection of cultural world of their historical contest, moved by desire to experiment new expression forms, against and distant from common language scheme. The intention of Gruppo 63, the name of artists’ group, was to create a new “territory” with new words, new forms, new sounds, to abandon a narrow – minded past, made by compromises, egoism, ignorance and suppression, and to produce a new idea of world with new energies.

All along, Naples as a capital city protagonist of the artistic avant-garde, celebrates the anniversary of Gruppo 63 to seal the international manifestations about it, with this event organized by Fondazione Morra during Notte D’Arte. The event bases his concept on the connection between word and moving picture: some poets that belong to Gruppo 63 (like N. Balestrini) and younger but linked to it will read poetries and some visual artists – filmmakers will use the picture show to impress their broken up visions. It is important to remember that in 1967 in Naples gave birth to the experience of Cooperativa Cinema Indipendente because of Gruppo 63’s innovations.

The event will conclude will a debate, in which speakers will be artists and theorists founders of the movement. In the end Lino Guanciale, a talented actor, will act a monologue (1963) written by G. Manganelli, an unclassifiable author, member of that unique artistic season.
