    "language that does not have need of words, but is condensed in amniotic images, fluid, separated, abstracted..."
    - Oliviero Ponte di Pino

    Cristiano Carloni and Stefano Franceschetti interpret the essence of Socìetas Raffaello Sanzio's work by means of their digital marquetry technique. The aim is therefore not to document, but to create other objects of contemplation.

    The original music for the stage productions is created by composer Scott Gibbons in close cooperation with Chiara Guidi. While Genesi. From the museum of sleep features music captured from the stage and processed alongside the video, for the cycle of Tragedia endogonidia Gibbons undertakes the creation of altogether new arrangements and montages. The projected image is not a living entity, it is a remembrance; and the sounds which worked before in live theatre are harvested and processed in a new direction for video.

    Working in tandem with the unfolding Tragedia endogonidia process, by the end they will have realised (apart from C.#01 Cesena, which was created by Romeo Castellucci) video memories of the entire series of episodes. Since the whole series of Episodes will be screened for C.#11 Cesena, the final episode, people can follow the development of the process of this Tragedia; they can witness the spectacle of the principal, major figures that keep recurring, while comparing images or details that are distant in time, but not in concept; the entire architectural plan that has been built will be visible; and, finally, people will be able to sense the dramatic system that was heralded by the Tragedia Endogonidia by establishing a new relationship with the city and determining a new economy of art.

    Cristiano Carloni and Stefano Franceschetti studied animation and painting at Urbino and have worked together since 1993 in the field of electronic arts, creating videos and video installations. They received the first prize at the Grand Prix de la Ville de Locarno 1996 (with the video Urbino memoriale) and at the Riccione TTV Performing Arts on Screen 2002 (with the video Genesi. From the museum of sleep based on the opera of the same name by Romeo Castellucci).
