Open SPAM!

Description 

Open Spam! is the name of the residency program offered by SPAM, aiming to provide an opportunity network to meet the artists and the ideas animating the contemporary arts scene.

SPAM thus invites artists to experiment, live and shape in their own way this project in the unique territory it is located, to meet, to share, to innovate in the contemporary art creation. This is what SPAM! Is focused on!

Each artist will be asked to share some results of the residences in one of the of Theatres belonging to the Network spread along the Province of Lucca, Tuscany, or in the arts center Il Grattacielo (LI).

Location 

Porcari is a small town 10 minutes far by train from Lucca, Province in the north part of Tuscany, in a fertile plain near the Tyrrhenian Sea. Among other reasons, it is famous for its intact Renaissance-era city wall that have remained intact while so many other Tuscan towns saw theirs destroyed in past centuries. Lucca is located on a plain at the foot of the Apuan Alps and is less than half an hour from the Tuscan coast.

Extraordinarily, as the city grew and modernized, the walls that surrounded the old town were maintained which was not the case for many other cities in Tuscany, including Florence. As the walls lost their military importance, the top of the walls became a pedestrian promenade, today one of Lucca's main attractions. The area around the walls is well taken care of, with green grass and trees everywhere along the walls. They have in essence become a park that surrounds the city and blocks out more modern life. Lucca is also the birthplace of composers Giacomo Puccini (La Bohème and Madama Butterfly), Francesco Geminiani, Gioseffo Guami, and Luigi Boccherini.
