May 2017 Monument Program in Naples updated on Campania’s website.

The May 2017 Monument Program proposed, was developed by the Council of Culture and Tourism of the City of Naples in synergy with the cultural institutions of the city and the associations traditionally protagonists of the great Spring appointment. A central focus is on the work of deepening and interpretation proposed by the institutional working group whose result is the program we wanted to call “ColToto” thanks to the many reflections and insights the Prince of Laughter continues to inspire . A special mention goes to the exceptional participation of the Band of Carabinieri Arms who enthusiastically participates in our program of May Of the Monuments 2017 with a musical tribute that will hold ‘delightful summons. The concert will take place on May 5th in the monumental square that hosts the funeral of the unforgettable actor Mercato square.

For Antonio de Curtis, for all Toto ‘, who disappeared in April 1967, the city of Naples imagined a party more than a commemoration, which he might have aroused with a gesture Scampered or disdained with one of his surreal jokes. A collective party more than a rediscovery, because on the image of Toto these fifty years have passed fast and light, without erasing it, without even fading it, so strong and alive its presence in the imaginary, language , In Neapolitan culture and beyond. A party because he himself was a desecrating monument to the freedom of artistic invention, a popular mask, profoundly Neapolitan, yet universal, sentimental and iconoclastic at the same time. It is therefore a master of freedom to think about the future.

In the program of this May of the Monuments 2017, hundreds of events, performances, shows, concerts, tourist routes and guided tours related to the proposed theme organized by tourist guides, companies, associations, bodies, consortia, Department of Culture and Tourism all declined under the theme of ‘May to Toto’. An incredible number of initiatives by many cultural operators. For this reason, the May 2017 Monument program here in Naples could not be included in the only canonical month of the initiatives, so it started well in advance with the Toto ‘Genio exhibition inaugurated on April 12, and will continue until the Summer with Surprising initiatives, including the innovative design of signal art art installations that will spark in city symbols until July. The protagonist, therefore, is the whole city, and especially the young. Among the young and the young Toto ‘is as popular as their contemporary, a character of our time, and perhaps they will give them the most original contribution to the rediscovery of a character with a thousand shades.
