Convivio

Convivio - Numero Cromatico.JPG

Convivio (2018) is a performance by Numero Cromatico that is part of the project Da Franco. Senza Appuntamento, which took place in an historical barbershop in Corso Vittorio Emanuele II,

in Rome. 


The title comes from the metaphorical concept framed by Dante Alighieri in his popular text Convivio, written during his exile period. Until that point, the word “convivio” had been used

to describe a feast but Dante started using it referring to a means

of spreading theories and scientific studies through the use of a comprehensible language. Hence, the performance is a way

of communicating Numero Cromatico‘s theories and methodologies through a simple and accessible language. 
In the barbershop performers interpreted some of the members

of Numero Cromatico while acting out a real conversation

that occurred a few months before the event with curator

Vasco Forconi. The public could only attend the performance by agreeing to cut his/her hair. 


The act was performed by Salvatore Crucitti, Antonio Duccilli, Ariela La Stella, Valerio Pitorri, Giordano Scialanga, Giovanni Sorrentino.
