Cristina Trivulzio di Belgiojoso | 150 Years

More than a commemoration, a starting point

On the occasion of the installation of the first statue in Milan dedicated to a woman, Cristina Trivulzio di Belgiojoso, Le Dimore del Quartetto with the support of Fondazione Brivio Sforza organizes an itinerary of concerts and conversations to turn the spotlight on the extraordinary life of this heroine of the Italian Risorgimento and to suggest a starting point for a broader collective recognition of women’s action in history and in the contemporary time.

Elisa Barsella, viola | Rachele Nucci, cello

Daria Scia (1986)  – “di Candele e di Lumi” (first performance)

Three different processes and energetic models, in which matter, or wax, takes life from the animating force inherent in it. A first process in which the swarming is extinguished in the clustering of two elements, which draw strength from their obsessive repetition. Moving towards another dimension, figures emerge with a distinct vectoriality that are repeated among the different instruments in a spiraling game, finally opening the curtain to a luminous and suspended rumble in which the swarming and the trails of sound eliminate any dialectic tension.

Robert Schumann (1810-1856) –  String Quartet op. 41 n. 3 in A major
I. Andante espressivo, Allegro molto moderato II. Assai aditato III. Adagio molto IV. Finale. Allegro molto vivace. Quasi Trio

The first performance of this work was organized privately on the occasion of his wife Clara’s birthday. The quartets of Op. 41 were the result of an intense period of activity of the composer due to the closeness to Clara after a long period of separation.

Born in Milan on June 28, 1808, Cristina lived in the middle of the Italian Risorgimento. In 1829 she became a political activist in the female section of the Carboneria. A few years later, she lived in exile, getting in touch with the Italian Liberation Council in Marseille in 1831. In 1932 she opens in Paris one of the major cultural salons of the time and, back in Italy, participates in the insurrections of Milan and Rome in 1848-49. As a social activist, she built kindergartens, schools, communal kitchens, and homes for peasants in Locate, and created and directed the Military Ambulances (proto Red Cross) in besieged Rome. Her contribution as a writer, journalist and publisher was also very important. From 1845 she founded newspapers and periodicals that she directed between France and Italy. Great traveler and entrepreneur, she created a farm in Cappadocia in 1850 and made a journey of the Middle East up to Jerusalem in 1852.
