Sounds and Performances for the Winter Solstice

SOL INVICTUS: Sounds and performances for the winter solstice

Also this year, Istituto Svizzero celebrates the winter solstice with a programme of performances and live-sets in Palermo, Milan and Rome.

The shortest day of the year: the winter solstice, by convention, is the moment in which, due to the position of the Sun with respect to the equator, the longest night and the shortest day correspond. An astronomical event rich in symbolic meanings ‚Äď sometimes even controversial ‚Äď that was celebrated in antiquity by pagan populations before the advent of Christianity: the Romans celebrated Sol Invictus, the Egyptians the birth of Horus, the Greeks worshipped Helios. After the prevailing hours of winter darkness, the Sun seemed to be reborn and became invincible (from Latin Sol Invictus). A time of year that, ancestrally, marks the passage from darkness to light. And it is precisely to the search for light, for the divine that is in the air, for the myth and the beauty of nature that Istituto Svizzero revolves these three evenings of movement and sound experimentation.

Food and drinks can be purchased on-site.

Curated by Gioia Dal Molin.

The evenings are organized in collaboration with¬†Fondazione Sant‚ÄôElia Palermo, Fondazione Giangiacomo Feltrinelli,¬†MACRO ‚ÄĒ Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome.
