In the 10th year of Carico Massimo’s existence and after two years of closure, it reopens to the public with a first event taking shape on Saturday, July 2, 2022 in the regenerated space of Livorno’s former general warehouse.

Kabarè 1/10 (la limpia, el trabajo) begins with the final polishing of the new space on the second floor and evolves into a celebration of the reopening, amid performative interweavings of work, voices, sounds and actions. Immaterial poetics, collective work and dancing rituals follow one another in a day of conviviality, thanks to the joint presence of a multifaceted group of artists from different in-disciplines.

Kabarè 1/10 also saw the inauguration of FRASCA, an ethylic distribution and mapping point for fermented products. Frasca will be one of the permanent articulations of the convivial exhibition space and will provide energy at various gradations for all of Carico Massimo’s program.
Distribution of craft beers and organic wine from Ortigrandi (Capraia), grappa from La Valluzza of Palbena (Arezzo); from 8 p.m. aperitivo with Sasha & Viola feat. Marcella.

Kabarè 1/10 (la limpia, el trabajo) is the 1st of 10 events that will transform Carico Massimo from a purely contemplative space to a living place of encounters and multiple experiences.

cabaret ‹kabarè› s. m., fr. – The term originally came from Picard language or Walloon language words camberete or cambret for a small room (12th century). The first printed use of the word kaberet is found in a document from 1275 in Tournai. The term was used since the 13th century in Middle Dutch to mean an inexpensive inn or restaurant (caberet, cabret). The word cambret, itself probably derived from an earlier form of chambrette, little room, or from the Norman French chamber meaning tavern, itself derived from the Late Latin word camera meaning an arched roof.
