the first European festival on creativity

2019 Programme

Event #5

Beatrice Venezi, Gioele Dix

A time that is not near

When we leave a theatre or a concert hall, we often realize that time flew. Music, theatre and literature live on time and with time, but they can also turn its conventional perception so that we can feel its vertiginous, subjective profundity. "A time that is not near" not only describes what happens in a theatre, but it is also a precise description of the future. It is not by chance that great composers and authors anticipated their time and they managed to speak also to people that were not there yet. Beatrice Venezi, one of the youngest orchestra directors in Europe, meets Gioele Dix, an Italian author in love with literature and music. Together with Milano Classica Solo Artists, Venezi and Dix will talk about their favorite artists trying to imagine the future of their profession.



Beatrice Venezi (Lucca, Italy, 1990), is among the youngest orchestra director of Europe and she conducts the Nuova Orchestra Scarlatti of Naples. She also entered the Forbes rank of the 30 most influential Italians under 30 years of age. Expert of the Puccini repertoire, she conducted orchestras all over the world: from Japan to Bielorussia, from Portugal to Lebanon. She is author of the book Allegro con fuoco. Immanorarsi della musica classica (Utet, 2019).


Gioele Dix, actor, author and director, he debuted in theatre with masters including Franco Parenti and Sergio Fantoni. He then embarked on a career as a solo comedy act, working on Mai dire gol from 1997 and then joining the show Zelig in 2007. His combinations of classics and comedy are very popular: Edipo.comLa Bibbia ha (quasi) sempre; the currently touring Vorrei essere figlio di un uomo felice and Il malato immaginario. He has directed productions including Oblivion showSogno di una notte di mezza estate, and Matti da slegare. His books include Quando tutto questo sarà finito (Mondadori, 2014).
