The leather show at Festival Dei Due Mondi in Spoleto

The leather show at Festival of Two Worlds in Spoleto

It is called The Dream Workshop. It is the “first widespread edutainment project on costume”, as a note states. It will be staged from Saturday, 24 June 2023, within the new edition of the Festival Dei Due Mondi in Spoleto. A project developed by Fabiana Giacomotti (costume historian and editor of Foglio della Moda) and which sees Lineapelle among the protagonists.

The Dream Workshop

The project takes place “as a corollary to the new staging of Claude Debussy‘s opera Pélleas et Mélisande”. This opera is scheduled for June 24 and 25, at the Teatro Nuovo Gian Carlo Menotti with the Budapest Festival Orchestra conducted by Iván Fischer. “It includes a small comparative exhibition of costumes from performances of Pélleas et Mélisande”. Then: “A morning of study in the theatre’s 17th September Hall, dedicated to professionals and schools of costume and theatre”. Finally, for three Saturdays (24 June, 1 July, 8 July), “a series of workshops, upon registration, open to the public”. The aim: “to learn the value of costume in the relationship between text and music, and to learn how to create an easy costume/scene accessory that participants can take with them”. And here, Lineapelle comes into play.

Leather at the Festival of Two Worlds

“The project uses bases and materials of the highest quality, and is developed in an up-cycling logic”, explains a note. “I sincerely thank the Spoleto Festival for allowing me to give life to an experimental project that I have been thinking about for a long time”, Giacomotti says. “The narrative value, but also the factual, handcrafted value of the theatre crafts, deserves to be known by the general public. Thanks also to all the partners who, by providing splendid but unused material, make the value of reuse and the circular economy evident”. These include “the prototype archive of Lineapelle which, thanks to its managing director Fulvia Bacchi, has created the scarselle (small leather bags, ed.) (photo, right) that can be finished sewing and decorated in the workshop”.
