Movement Culture is Movement Festival’s cultural programme to value public spaces through initiatives financed by private resources.
Over the years it was held in different prestigious location around Torino among which the Giuseppe Verdi Conservatory (hosting Aufgang in 2011, Brand Brauer Frick in 2012, Bugge Wesseltof & Henrik Schwarz in 2013, Juan Atkins & Moritz Von Oswald in 2014 and Elektro Guzzi in 2015), the Regional Natural Science Museum, the National Automobile Museum, Lumiq Studios, Circolo dei Lettori, BasicVillage Temporary Museum and the Environmental Museum.
In 2010 a new format is conceived: Politechno a seminar for students of the BA in Cinema and Media Engineering of Politecnico di Torino about the entrepreneurial experience of artists and promoters. This appointment has now become an integral part of Movement Festival’s programme. Over the years renowned artists such as Derrick May and Enrico Sangiuliano have shared their journey with students.
In 2017 and 2018 the first electronic live performances are held in the Departures Lounge of Torino Airport. It’s LaStampa Sound Journey, a format that mixes the sounds of the airport with live music providing a unique soundtrack to outbound passengers.
In 2019 the short documentary The FuturFeeling was previewed at the Cinema Massimo within the SeeYouSound Festival.
In 2020 the pandemic and the consequent impossibility to gather in person gives the inspiration for City Soundtrack, a playlist that spreads electronic music in Turin’s hotels during the days the Movement Festival should have taken place. The success of the initiative keeps it going in 2021 and 2022.
