Maria Federica Maestri and Francesco Pititto direct Valentina Barbarini and the soprano Debora Tresanini in a meditation in front of the mystery of the Beginning, immersed in the work of Franz Joseph Haydn – Die Schöpfung – and inspired by the sound writing of Andrea Azzali. Ancient obscure eloquences, romantic evocations of a lost nature, contemporary scientific intuitions, compose the great fresco of paintings and psychic states of La Creazione [The Creation], performative, sound and image writing inspired by the texts of Genesis, the Psalms and the poem Paradise lost by John Milton. Visions and words that proceed by flashes of reversed memory: from verse 27 that concludes the first account of biblical Genesis ‘And God created man in his image’ to the first verse ‘In the beginning God created heaven and earth’. A backward movement interpreted by two scenic figures, the Theologian and the Scientist, called to prove the existence of the initial One and to find residual traces of it in the creative present.
