Artissima presents new podcast Lo stereoscopio dei solitari, a voyage through stories of lives that intertwine with the world of art, narrated by 12 exceptional authors.

Gallerists, playwrights, performers, writers and musicians share the attraction to artistic creation, freely outlining their own narratives driven by inner urges, personal fascinations and research. Like stereoscopic images – driven by the suggestion of the title, taken from a novel by J. Rodolfo Wilcock (published by Adelphi) – the voices point to a three-dimensional development of the stories being told, granting form to the singularity of each account through words.

Lo stereoscopio dei solitari, an Artissima production, is made in collaboration with Il Giornale dell’Arte and with the support of Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo.

All the episodes are in Italian.

► Ep. 01 | Guido Costa 

The story of Damien Hirst’s first exhibition in Italy becomes an opportunity for the Turin gallerist Guido Costa to reflect on the evolution of the art market over the last thirty years.


► Ep. 02 | Fabio Cherstich

Underground and queer Manhattan of the 1980s is the setting chosen by the director and playwright Fabio Cherstich, who narrates an inner voyage through traces of memory to (re)discover Patrick Angus, Larry Stanton and Darrell Ellis.


► Ep. 03 |  Melania Mazzucco

The writer Melania Mazzucco outlines the portrait of Paula Modersohn-Becker, among the most important avant-garde painters of the early 20th century, a brief yet intense existence marked by the conflict between artistic creation and motherhood, emancipation and love.


► Ep. 04 |  Luca Scarlini

For artists, the stage is an endless scene of seductions, encounters and games, a hospitable home in which to expose and perform: writer and playwright Luca Scarlini raises the curtain on the very rich but rather forgotten relationship between Manzù, Marini, Fontana, Burri, Scheggi and the theater.


► Ep. 05 |  Alessandro Sciarroni

Photography, painting and performance are intertwined in the endless conceptual research of Portuguese artist Helena Almeida, whose art, which transcends the physical space of the canvas to explore new dimensions, is revived in the autobiographical narrative of choreographer Alessandro Sciarroni.


► Ep. 06 |  Silvia Calderoni

The encounter between actress Silvia Calderoni and Judith Malina, founder of one of the 20th century’s most visionary theater companies, the Living Theatre, invites us to reflect on the body as an archive of the experiences of the creative act.


► Ep. 07 |  Laura Iamurri

Art historian Laura Iamurri turns the spotlight on Cloti Ricciardi, in the 1970s protagonist of the Roman Feminist Movement, who never abandoned militancy by adapting its forms to the times and intersecting political commitment and artistic practice in an extraordinary way.
