Hilde – on the wings of the eternal feminine – concert

The title of the 2023 cycle of cultural meetings of the “Vita e Pace” cultural association is dedicated to the Eternal Feminine, a title that refers to a poem by Goethe which reads: All the ephemeral is nothing but a symbol; The Unworkable Is accomplished here; Here the ineffable becomes reality; Eternal feminine will draw us. We like to imagine the Eternal Feminine as a wind that incessantly blows and flutters over humanity carrying life, pollen, aromatic substances, dispersing or regrouping, sometimes even in dramatic ways, hovering to compose and shape, inspire and renew languages ​​and contents. Art, carried by the “Muses” has always had this mission; it corrects and modifies aberrations, renews itself and finds new life in the education of the new generations and in the infinite and wise self-education of the adult world. The music marks and follows its boundaries, it swells up to “dictating fashion”, and then “goes out of fashion”.

Avigliana, with its two lakes and the Dora, was once also points around which people gathered to draw water “Umile et Preziosa et Casta” as San Francesco called it. The area of ​​Santa Maria also had its own well which can still be seen today, sheltered by a grate, along the access lane to the monument.

One of the many victims of the “expensive bills” was and still is the heating of the Church of Santa Maria Maggiore in the old town of Avigliana! The management has tried to concentrate most of the activities in the hot season but in order not to distort the entire project dedicated to women and water, has wanted to leave the two stages of 8 March and 8 December which, like pillars, delimit the entire cultural activity 2023. The public will therefore have to access the two shows well equipped against the cold, with suitable clothing. This year’s “Avigliana… Insieme” season is entirely dedicated to Annamaria Ottoboni; we like to think that this generous act continues the line of patronage that an illustrious predecessor, Cardinal Pietro Ottoboni undertook in the 18th century, in support and in favor of emerging musicians and artists of the time.

The appointment for Friday 15 September (show for schools): Hilde, freely inspired by Saint Hildegard of Bingen. With Sabrina Melino and Claudio Tomaello. 11.00 at the Church of Santa Maria Maggiore, old village of Avigliana.
