September 17th, 2022 – Totentanz: love beyond death
Antique Paper workshops and the Totentanz event
at the M.A.M.A. Museum
Love and death will be the protagonists of the performance “ Totentanz: a story of love that conquered death, Antonia Fiermonte and Jacques Zwobada”, to be held on September 17th in Lecce at the Antonia Modern Art Museum. The Museum was dedicated by Fouad Giacomo and Antonia Yasmina Filali to the extraordinary life and work of their maternal grandmother, dead at only 42, and of the French sculptors René Letourneur (1898-1990) and Jacques Zwobada (1900-1967), whose lover and muse she was.
Totentanz is an artistic project by the master papermaker and engraver Andrea de Simeis: a large music box which at the turn of a handle plays a dies irae and moves three cylinders with 18 illustrations printed on a starwheel press and inspired by the most famous european “danses macabres”, in which “the dying meet their death”, captioned with short dialogues by renowned authors.

PALAZZO BOZZI CORSO WELLNESS RETREAT
The luxurious and charming Palazzo Bozzi Corso is situated just a stone’s throw from the Basilica di Santa Croce. Erected in 1775, it is today dedicated to the memory of Enzo Fiermonte, world-famous boxing champion and great-uncle to the current owners Antonia and Giacomo Filali.
This historical Palazzo, positioned in the very centre of the Old City, features 10 elegant Suites.
Within its walls one can breathe the art that accompanies the history of the Fiermonte Family.
Every Suite tells a story, beginning with that of the two artists Zwobada and Leturneur whose works of art can be admired in every hall, through to Fernand Léger and even John Lennon and Yoko Ono( the latter a personal friend of the owners’ mother). The interiors exude a totally unique style, a perfect marriage of classical and contemporary design, with bespoke furniture alongside notable pieces by Sottsass, Gio Ponti, Mackintosh and Le Corbusier.
The Palazzo boasts an elegant Rooftop terrace with plunge pool and an extraordinary view over the City of Lecce, with its many bell towers, picturesque buildings and unforgettable sunsets.
An indoor Wellness area is also available, featuring a natural stone hydromassage pool, a Relaxarium and a Massage room where to indulge in personalised treatments and wellness activities.
The property also comes with a beautiful private garden where Guests can enjoy breakfast in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening.
All the rooms feature carefully curated interiors and all modern comforts; some Suites boast a private sauna or chromotherapy shower. Two of the Suites share a terrace, while two have direct access to the Rooftop.
Each of the ten Suites is totally unique and has been dedicated to a different chapter of the Fiermonte family’s history.

M.A.M.A. FAMILY MUSEUM
The M.A.M.A. (Antonia Modern Art Museum) is a private museum which acts as the artistic link between the La Fiermontina Resort and Palazzo Bozzi Corso. The spirit of three artists animates this secret space in the heart of Lecce: displayed within its walls are pieces by the sculptors Jacquest Zwobada and René Letourneur, inspired by their beautiful muse Antonia Fiermonte.
The museum also organises thematic events, food and wine tasting sessions and exhibitions by other national and international artists.
EXPERIENCE LA FIERMONTINA FAMILY COLLECTION
La Fiermontina, only a 5 minute walk from Palazzo Bozzi Corso, is an ancient masseria which was entirely restored and transformed into a luxurious hotel inaugurated in 2015.
Surrounded by the ancient city walls, La Fiermontina is a place where tradition and modernity come together in perfect harmony.
It was also the starting point for the Family Collection, which in August 2021 expanded further along the trail of Antonia Fiermonte’s love story by returning to Paris, where everything had begun.
La Fiermontina Vendôme, located in the eponymous Square – one of the most prestigious in the world – is a luxurious private apartment featuring its own art gallery and surrounded by the most renowned boutiques in Paris ( Bulgari, Cartier, Gucci and Dior to name but a few).
Soon the Family Collection will open the doors of a new , ambitious project in Morocco:
the “ Ocean” Luxury Resort, where luxury will espouse the values and autenticity of the territory.
LECCE AND SALENTO: BAROQUE ART AND THE TERRITORY
Lecce is considered the Capital of Baroque architecture. The Old City’s alleyways exude artistic flair; the many baroque churches, the small honey-coloured buildings and the elegant, secluded courtyards tell a story which is entrenched in tradition. With a cultural and artistic heritage ranging from Lecce stone carving to papier-mâché religious art, through to folk music and traditional cuisine, Lecce and Salento are amongst Italy’s most beautiful treasures. 150 km of coastline provide many enchanting sights, places to discover and experiences to make your holiday truly unforgettable.
