the first European festival on creativity

2017 Program

Event #5

Marco Albino Ferrari

Enchantment. From Val Grande to the polar icecaps

The Bove Path within the Val Grande National Park is the most ancient path on the alpine ridge. It is named for the Piemontese explorer Giacomo Bove, a central figure in the geographic discoveries of the late 19th century, who later fell victim to a damnatio memoriae due to his “unforgivable” end. Following in Bove’s footsteps, Marco Albino Ferrari reconstructs a forgotten tale, accompanied by guitarist Denis Biason’s live musical performance, in a show made up of words, sounds and images which will premiere at Festival della Mente. An astonishing voyage in time that will transport viewers through coincidences and dramatic turns of events to the final arctic trap: 35 weeks waiting escape, stranded in the ice. Unexpected characters will come onto scene, such as Emilio Salgari and the Swedish professor Nordenskiöld, each caught in the net of the great explorer who perished at his own hand in 1887.
