La Via Lattea 18. La bella mugnaia
Eco-musical pilgrimage around Franz Schubert's Die schöne Müllerin
Like a mill wheel, La Via Lattea 18 revolves around Franz Schubert's Die schöne Müllerin - The beautiful miller - reinterpreted in a contemporary and ecological key in the Valle della Motta Park and the Daniello Mill, which lend themselves well to the staging, or rather the landscaping, of this typically romantic tale.
The actual pilgrimage takes place at the beginning of September and is divided into two parts. In the first - Wanderung, the wanderings of the Romantics - a young actor accompanied by two young musicians leads the wanderers through the park, discovering the texts of Wilhelm Müller and the unhappy love of the young apprentice for the beautiful miller. Along the way, there is no lack of surprises: the sounds of Schubert intersect with the sounds of three composers of our time: Jannik Giger, Mario Pagliarani and Manuel Zwerger. In the second - Gran Finale, inside the mill - the entire Schubert cycle is heard with two stellar performers: German tenor Julian Prégardien and Belgian pianist Els Biesemans. La Via Lattea musically inaugurates the Mulino del Daniello, brought back to life after renovation work, and (perhaps) for the first time La bella mugnaia will resound in a mill.
La bella mugnaia thus becomes an opportunity for an intense dialogue between music and landscape, in a contradictory area such as the Valle della Motta where the park coexists with the landfill. And it is precisely in the landfill that a meeting between two partisans of ecology will take place: the landscape architect Paolo Poggiati and the biologist Raimund Rodewald, to round off the last day.
