Rome. Monday 1 January 2020 3,30 pm Piazza del Popolo. The spectacular New Year’s Day parade – now a wonderful Roman tradition – is bursting back to give the city a rousing start to 2020. More than a thousand musicians, including young students from the most prestigious high school bands in the United States, majorettes from Italy and Croatia, folk groups and Roman historical re-enactors, will perform through the historic centre of the capital. For over two hours the performers will march in music and various choreographies along Via del Corso, Via Frattina, Piazza Mignanelli, Piazza di Spagna and Via del Babuino and will perform, for the grand finale, in an arena created for the occasion where the public can enjoy the great live show also on giant screens.This is the long list of artists who will parade in this long and exciting marathon: from Italy Associazioni Riunite di Rievocazione Storica Romana, Associazione Bandistica Città di Mentana with Majorettes, Artefatti Trampoli from Rome, Associazione Filarmonica Vejanese from Vejano (VT), Sbandieratori from Castiglion Fiorentino, Majorette Medullia from Sant’Angelo Romano, Amaseno Harmony Show Band from Frosinone, Gruppo Folkloristico Ma Tru’di from Amatrice and Gruppo Folk ‘La Frustica’ from Faleria; from the United States the marching bands Olivet Nazarene University Tiger Marching Band (Illinois), Olivet College Marching Comets (Michigan), Hinsdale Central High School Red Devil Marching Band (Illinois), Hickory Ridge High School Blue Regiment (North Carolina), Ramsey High School ‘Big Blue’ Marching Band (New Jersey) and North Port High School Alliance Marching Band (Florida).Rotating their chopsticks in spectacular choreographies will be the Croatian Nedelišće Majorettes and the numerous members of the Varsity Spirit All-American Dancers & Cheerleaders group, who will perform various movements on well-known international pop hits.The scenography of the Parade will also be enriched by the typical means of transport “made in Italy” such as the vespa, the vintage Fiat 500s, the vintage 900 bicycles and the Sound cars of ShareNGo, and by the giant “Rome Parade” themed balloons, “Gladiator”,”Senator” and Centurion”, carried by students and from the Menomonee Falls High School Symphonic Orchestra of Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin. In addition to the parade the festivities include some concerts in churches and basilicas in the historic centre, with repertoires of sacred and classical music held by some of the Rome Parade formations.

Christie’s will offer Andy Warhol’s White Marilyn

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 9 aprile 2014

marilynNew York – On May 13, Christie’s will offer Andy Warhol’s White Marilyn, 1962, one of the most iconic portraits created by the artist and widely recognized as one of the finest examples of Warhol’s greatest and most sensational bodies of work, the Death and Disasters series. The spectacular White Marilyn (estimate: $ 12–18 million), a stunning image of one of Hollywood’s larger-than-life legends, was created immediately after Monroe’s untimely death in 1962, when Warhol became fascinated with the idea of Monroe as a pre-fabricated media product.  White Marilyn emerges as an emblem of 1960s Pop. Belonging to the twelve “single Marilyns” mentioned by Warhol in POPism, White Marilyn was one of eight Marilyns selected for Warhol’s first one-man exhibition at Eleanor Ward’s renowned Stable Gallery in New York in 1962, and was once part of her personal collection.“We are extremely proud to present White Marilyn, one of the nucleuses of Warhol’s first ever and most significant solo exhibition organized by Eleanor Ward for the Stable Gallery in 1962.  With his unique ability to fuse painting and photography into an unforgettably iconic image, Warhol condensed all the themes of his art in this magnificent White Marilyn which keeps one such icon alive and forever in style. Compared to the perfectly coiffed media propagated publicity images of the actress, in White Marilyn she appears touched by humanity, and transcends reality to become a modern Saint. Warhol dedicated this work to Ward and expressed his gratitude scattering hearts on the reverse of the painting. Warhol gave Mint Marilyn to Jasper Johns, Gold Marilyn Monroe and Blue Marilyn were acquired by Phillip Johnson and Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Barr before being gifted respectively to the National Gallery of Arts in Washington, and the Princeton University Art Museum.” declared Laura Paulson, Christie’s Chairman and International Director for Post-War and Contemporary Art.
