2023 Program

This page gathers all the activities happening during the intense four days of the third edition of Scambi Festival. To give more context, in some cases we created pages tailored for a single event.

24 agosto 2023

  • Allestimento collettivo ‣ Why should things only start when everything is ready? The collective staging is the debut of the festival in a choral and collective way: everyone is invited to participate in the final preparations!
  • Inaugurazione di Scambi Festival 2023 ‣ The opening ceremony of the third edition of Scambi will be a summary anticipation of all the incredible activities that will take place during the four days of the event. Guests will include Alberto Biancheri, mayor of Sanremo, Costanza Pireri, deputy mayor and councillor for youth policies and Giuseppe Faraldi, councillor for tourism.
  • Cineforum: proiezione Kagemusha ‣ The local association Pigna Mon Amour organizes the summer film club in piazza Santa Brigida, screening of the movie Kagemusha (1980), by Akira Kurosawa.
  • Io sono INVISIBILE, Concerto disegnato ‣ Stefano Pedro Porro loves to experiment in the artistic field using various techniques, preferring painting, ink, and engraving. The Casa in Collina is an instrumental duo based on improvisation and on the streams that dig the sides of the Langhe hills. Together, they come together for the designed concert I am INVISIBLE, a multidisciplinary and extemporaneous journey between music and visual arts.

  • Verso Casa film club Proiezione Wall-EVerso Casa is our film club dedicated to all those souls who, from time to time, need to inhabit (or find) their safe place in the world. We will present 3 films that will remind us of how important it is to get lost in an unknown place, to fight for our freedom and to have the curiosity to observe reality more closely. This space-time gap will be open to everyone without age limits, like the magic of cinema and the characters we’ll meet. We are waiting for you every morning in Santa Brigida Church with the familiar desire to dream and get emotional together. (Films in Italian with English subtitles)

  • Presentazione del libro Italo Calvino e Sanremo. Alla ricerca di una città scomparsa ‣ Italo Calvino wrote that to see a city it is not enough just to keep your eyes open. First of all, it is necessary to discard everything that prevents us from seeing it. Laura Guglielmi, from Sanremo, starting from the suggestions of the writer’s texts traces an unprecedented itinerary in time and space. It tells the Sanremo of Italo Calvino (1923-1985) but it also goes back in time to rebuild a vanished city. To emerge in this text is not only a geographical-literary path, but also the ecological soul of Italo Calvino who already in the 1950s told of a bizarre Baron Rampante who believed in the rights of animals and trees. A way of seeing things that was passed on to him by his mother Eva Mameli, a botanist, and by his father Mario, an agronomist. The writer from Sanremo, in Building Speculation, outlined an Italy that was getting rich without any respect for the environment. And here this book also brings to light the wounds inflicted on our territory from the Second World War to the present day. The author failed to silence an inner voice that wanted to have her say, recounting the Sanremo in which she too grew up and trained, and whose hinterland she thoroughly explored, often with hiking boots on. The presentation will take place on the 25th in Piazza Capitolo.
