1917 – 2017 Pietro Grossi. Instant zero is the special project promoted by the Municipality of Florence to celebrate the centenary of the birth of the great composer (Venice, 1917 – Florence, 2002), founder of the Studio di Fonologia Musicale di Firenze S 2F M (1963), Italian pioneer of electronic music and computer music.
Tireless experimenter, passionate popularizer, Pietro Grossi was a multifaceted and decisive figure in the cultural debate of the second half of the twentieth century.
The program, curated by important city and regional realities and institutions, includes concerts, exhibitions, round tables, critical testimonies, screenings, listening moments and meetings with the public, in an attempt to analyze Grossi’s cultural heritage from the perspective of a openness to contemporaneity and recent musical production.
The calendar includes a series of initiatives with free admission between 17 and 21 October 2017, and is curated by the Conservatory “Luigi Cherubini” of Florence, Centro Pecci di Prato – Foundation for contemporary arts in Tuscany, Museo Novecento, Tempo Reale / Music production and teaching research center, coordinated by the Municipality of Florence and MUS.E. and the collaboration of the Pietro Grossi Association.
Within the program schedule, the Museo Novecento hosts Grossi’s Alphabet, an innovative survey to look at the experience of Pietro Grossi with a view to opening up to contemporary production enriched by testimonies and analyzes of authoritative international personalities.
Artists, musicians, composers, music experts and scholars will offer unpublished critical contributions interspersed with projections and listening moments and will be the protagonists of a round table.
