The Fondazione Spinola Banna per l'Arte
The Fondazione Spinola Banna per l'Arte, founded in Banna, near Turin, in 2004, organizes workshops, discussions and seminars of contemporary art, whose aim is to both deepen the theoretical under-pinnings of current artistic practice and to introduce those same philosophical theories to young contemprary artists.
The program of post-graduate education on contemporary art is based on a series of workshops with full-residency for Italian artists under the age of 35, under the supervision of international artists who freely choose theme, method and different phases of the educational process. At the end of every workshop the Foundation hosts an exposition of works and documents made by the students.
Progetto Musica is a commission-based project aimed to help young composers create new works which enter the repertoire of the ensembles selected to interpret them. Every year a workshop is organized so that the composers, together with the instrumentalists and under the supervision of an important composer, perfect the commissioned works with a view of the final concert, which is held in the concert hall of the Foundation. The final phase of the creative process merges therefore with the performance, involving all the musicians.
The Progetto Musica has obtained the XXX Premio Franco Abbiati for Music "Duilio Courir" in 2011.
