The Festival dei Due Mondi (Festival of the Two Worlds) is an annual summer music and opera festival held in Spoleto, Umbria, that features a vast array of concerts, opera, dance, drama, visual arts and roundtable discussions on science.
This year’s festival takes place from 29 June to 15 July 2018, for over fifteen days of operas, concerts, ballets, recitals, plays, along with film festivals, workshops, conferences, meetings, awards, competitions, special events and also contemporary art.
Founded by composer Gian Carlo Menotti in 1958, it is called of the “Two Worlds” because of the intention of having the American and European cultures meet each other.
This concept would then be strengthened by the fact that it was held in conjunction with the Spoleto Festival USA, held annually in Charleston, South Carolina.
Festival of the Two Worlds also involves young people, by inviting them to rediscover a cultural identity connected to the birth and development of the festival in Spoleto. For children and young people are designed a series of activities, such as: the project “Il Festival siamo noi” (We are the festival), which consists in courses of theatre education with a playful setting, of the alternation school-work and promotion of shows for the young ones.
