A shared billboard is the format of the second edition of MOCKUP, which will be held in the multifunctional space of the MONK in Rome, from 22 June to 6 October 2022. Numerous multidisciplinary events will be scheduled, ranging from music to literature, from cinema to comics, from stand-up to talks on topical issues and human rights.

Dozens of partners are involved, who are entrusted with the artistic direction of the event with the proposal of the most representative contents of their path: from music labels such as DNA Concerti, Costello’s & Bpm, to Eretico booking and Panico concerti, to publishing houses such as Minimum Fax, Arci clubs including Poppyficio, Fanfulla 5/a and Trenta Formiche, theatre crews such as Get Up Stand Up, festival spin-offs such as the Gaeta Jazz Festival and even Doctors without Borders, Open Arms, Strega Off and many others.

Mockup – Second Edition opens on Wednesday 22 June with Up Patriots To Live, singer-songwriter Pino Marino’s homage to Franco Battiato. Then concerts, talks, shows that will continue until 6 October. As early as Saturday 25 June, the Crocodiles arrive on the Monk stage from San Diego. Among the concerts on the programme: The Big Band Theory: Yaje plays Quincy Jones (3 July). On 4 July, Ugoless, the preview of the Gaeta Jazz Festival. There will also be Marco Fracasia (5 July), Cascate (8 July), Baobab (9 July) Gnut (19 July), Roots Magik Sextet (24 July), Rodion (28 July), Marta Tenaglia and Ceneri (2 September), Bob LOG III ( us ) + Johnny dal Basso + Estrels (6 September) and many others until 6 October with The Soft Moon, the Californian band led by Luis Vasquez.

On 6 July the Monk garden is dedicated to Strega OFF, the evening with the 7 finalist writers that takes place on the eve of the awarding of the Strega Prize. The programme includes the public vote that has become, thanks to Strega OFF, the official vote of the Strega Prize.

Among the scheduled talks: on 29 June is the evening with Open Arms and the screening of the film La legge del mare, cyberbullying will be discussed in the evening organised by Oxfam (5 July), and “cities of the future” in the Youth Culture Network meeting (Sunday 10 July). And in September: electronic music present, past and future in the Minimum Fax talk with Valerio Mattioli, “Women in the creative industry” in the Equaly meeting. Nero Editions’ Not series will be presented, and again a focus on comics in the Fandango/Coconino evening with Antonio Pronostico and Fulvio Risuleo. There will be no shortage of comics during the festival with the exhibition market promoted by Bad Moon Rising production – BMR Fest (17 July) and the Paper Market in September. And many other special events and appointments together with Doctors without Borders, the music workshops of Errichetta Festival, the music of the St. Louis College of Music, and the first musical in Alternative Augmentative Communication in collaboration with the Isidea Autism Disorders Study Association.

A special side section dedicated to graphic novels will take place at the Aldo Fabrizi Cultural Centre Library in the San Basilio district, under the artistic direction of the Risma Bookshop. Four cartoonists will be guests and the theme will be travel in all its forms. Sonno will present ‘Prima di tutto tocca nascere’ (5 July); Croma her ‘Jepi Jora’ (15 July). And then Maria Chiara Gianolla to talk about “A Black Carol. A ghost story of fascism”. (13 September) and Zuzu with his graphic novel “Happy Days” (23 September).

From one extreme to the other of the IV Municipio an invasion of art and culture for all tastes and audiences, with free admission to almost all the events on the bill to allow the widest participation, in the spirit of the Estate Romana 2022 of “rekindling the city”, in a family friendly space, with a series of collateral activities aimed at children.

Mockup was conceived in 2021 together with the cultural association Made in Roma Est as a project to support the stages that, like the MONK club, had to stop programming due to the pandemic. Starting from the concept of the first edition, aimed at restarting a segment of the entertainment industry by uniting different realities, Mockup extends this time to social, literary and comic book realities.
